Every type of shoe requires special attention. So today we are going to be discussing 5 Tips On How To Wear And Take Better Care Of Your Shoes. Enjoy.
#1. Keep your Shoes Clean Always
Most men overlook this a lot. They polish their shoes only once every week, some others polish once every month. A few others polish every morning just before they leave for work and then wear it all day in sandy, dirty and muddy ground without cleaning and proper care. These are all WRONG!! A stylish man always keeps his shoes clean, shined and free of dirt at any time of the day. Invest in pocket shoe shiner, this will always keep your shoe clean.
For Patent Leather shoes, you can prevent them from cracking by rubbing them occasionally with petroleum jelly, milk or olive oil. Simply apply cold-pressed nut oil, olive oil or beeswax to leather and buff with a cloth. Do this for only black leathers, if you apply these to a brown leather or any other color, it will leave stains.
#2. Avoid warped and out of shape shoes
It is advisable to have at least two pairs of dress shoes in the same color so you can let one pair rest for a day from sweat and stretching. So if you already have one black shoe, buy an extra black and if you have one brown shoe, double it up as well. Doing this prevents them from warping in unwanted ways. To ensure your shoe maintains the best form, place shoetrees in your shoes when you’re not wearing them.
#3. Wear the right socks with your shoe
When it comes to leather shoes, wear dark colored cotton or silk socks. Avoid white athletic socks by all means, it should be used only for sporting activities. Stick to navy or black casual socks or better still men’s dress socks, they come in different varieties, such as colorful, polka dot, funky and fun types.
#4. Avoid square-toe shoes by all means
Clunky Square-toed shoes were so popular in the 90s, fashion has now strayed far away from this non-classic look. They’ll probably never come back into fashion so if you still have them in your shoe closet, please discard them and get some slimmer and much more attractive shoes.
#5. Ensure your shoe color matches your belt color
This cannot be over emphasized, the only exception is when you are on casual outfit, otherwise, if you are wearing dress shoes, make sure the color of your dress shoe matches the color of your belts (for all professional occasions). Also, the finish of your shoes and belts need to match. In other words, if your shoes are shiny, your belt should be shiny as well. If you’re wearing casual shoes or sneakers, make sure you wear a thicker casual belt to match instead of a thin dress belt.
