Shine, Shine, Shine on......

Taking proper care of your footwear is one of the most overlooked "responsbilities" in wardrobe maintenence. Some people are too lazy, some are too cheap and most are simply uneducated on how to actually proceed.

Not all polishes are created equal - if you dont shine your shoes often (or go somewhere that does it for you) you should be using a shoe cream like "Meltonian." ( It provides a deep moisturizer to the leathers, which is essential to the leathers flexbility and longevity. It will also keep the leathers from cracking over time.

If you polish your shoes more than once a month, you should be using a shoe wax like "Kiwi"(, which provides a higher shine than a creme would. If you are looking for that extra gloss, this is the way to go.

Whichever route you choose, using proper shoe care can restore some of your old beat up favorites and continue the life of your current investments. Take these very simple steps and you will find your shoes lasting longer and looking better!
