5 tips and tricks to look elegat and care for your leather shoes

This year is about embracing the idea of a wardrobe that is focused on your personal (life)style rather than trends. Let’s exchange the large quantities of fast fashion pieces for qualitative pieces that will last you a lifetime. Especially, when it comes to leather boots in Winter.

Start investing in a qualitative wardrobe and care for your leather boots

Finding Your Personal Style

The essence of personal style lies in selecting pieces that resonate with your lifestyle, character, and fit. Rather than chasing this season’s trends, try curating a wardrobe that stands the test of time. One in which real leather boots and shoes become not just an accessory but an investment in enduring elegance.

The Elegance Equation

Elegance isn’t solely defined by the price tag or the authenticity of your leather; it begins with looking polished. A crucial aspect often overlooked is the maintenance of your footwear. No matter how exquisite your boots are, neglecting their care can detract from the elegance you seek.

Tips for Leather Shoe Care

Moisturise with Leather Balm: Leather is a natural material that craves moisture. Treat your shoes at least once a month with a quality leather balm to keep them soft and supple.

Combat Dirt Promptly: Swiftly remove mud and dirt to prevent moisture absorption by the leather. However, exercise caution – never force-dry wet leather near a heater; let your shoes/boots air-dry at room temperature.

Invest in Proper Tools: Arm yourself with the right tools for leather care – a large horsehair brush for dirt removal, a smaller one for applying leather balm, colourless leather balm, and a polishing cotton cloth.

Embrace Shoe Trees: Maintain the shape of your beloved footwear by using boot or shoe trees whenever you store them.

Store with Care: For extended periods of storage, protect your shoes with a dust bag. This simple step ensures an extra shield against dust and damage.

As we continue on our journey towards a more sustainable and timeless wardrobe, let’s not forget that caring for our leather shoes is a ritual of respect for the pieces you chose to invest in. Elevate your winter elegance, one well-maintained step at a time.
