Use a shoehorn to help put your shoes on, thus avoiding damage to the backs of the shoes. When taken off, a wooden shoe tree should be inserted to absorb moisture and maintain the shoe’s shape. Store away from any heat sources. Clean and polish your shoes regularly, but first remove all dust and dirt using a hard brush.
To nourish the leather, apply moisturising shoe cream using a soft brush or cotton cloth, massaging it in slowly in concentric circles.
Leave for 10–15 minutes, then remove excess cream with a brush or raised cotton cloth.
Shine your shoes by applying a quality polish lightly in concentric circles using a smooth cotton cloth, adding a dab of water (or saliva) if required.
Leave for several hours before giving a final shine with a soft brush or raised cotton cloth.
Try to rotate the wearing of your shoes for better overall wear.
