5 hacks for making your shoes last longer that are so easy to try…

1.    Reinforce your shoes with rubber soles

Go to a shoe repair shop and add a rubber soles to the bottom of your shoes and taps to the heels and toes. You can replace when they wear out.

2.   Spray with water-resistent spray protector 

The best thing you can do for leather is to spray it with a water-resistant stain protector. Keep your suede and nubuck shoes shielded from the elements with a water and stain protection agent for enduring style. Simply spray before you wear them, and follow the instructions on the bottle to top up the protection every few months.

3.   Rotate your shoes 

Try not to wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row. Wearing the same shoes every day makes them age super quick.

4.    Stuff them with tissue-paper

Even though the using a wooden shoe tree is the best option, if you have a lot of shoes you will need a small fortune. Using tissue-paper is an alternative.

5.    Keep them in dust bags 

If you splurged on an expensive pair of designer shoes you already have a dust bag to protect them when in storage.
