Soles Matter: Taking Care Of Your Campus Shoes | Love Them Shoes

Friday 11 December 2015

Hey everyone!

So, you have found that perfect pair of campus shoes?
If you have been putting off wearing your new shoes because you are scared you might spoil them, then you are not alone. One of the best ways you can ensure that your shoes outlast their minimum durability is by caring for them.

Here’s how you can make sure that your new campus shoes look cool and fresh as long as possible-

Avoid Piling Them

Piling shoes on top of one another might leave dust marks and stains on your shoes. Organize your shoes by making space for them in your closet, room, or other places instead of just throwing them away in a corner.

Use a shoe box or bag to keep dust away. Opting for a shoe rack with wide spaces and independent units is also a great way to go ahead. You can also pack tissues or pieces of cardboard inside the shoe to maintain their shape. 
Keep silica based moisture absorbing agents inside each pair to prevent damage due to humidity. 

Brush Them

Knock the soles of the shoes together to dislodge the dust settled on them. Use a damp cloth to wipe away the dust on the surface for a quick clean. You can also spray cleaner on the shoe’s surface and use a wet shoe brush to gently scrub all over. 
Shoelaces can make or break the look of a shoe. So, make sure that you clean them as well when you brush your shoes. If you want, you can soak them in washing detergent solution for a while and rinse them.

Be Careful Where You Step

One of the easiest ways you can increase the life of your shoe is by avoiding stepping in dirt. Stay clear of muddy surfaces, water puddles, or wet grass as they can damage your shoe. Follow the safety instructions that come with the pair. 
Opt for shoes that are made from waterproof materials when out on adventure activities like trekking, hiking, or climbing.

Wear Them Right

When you wear a shoe that’s a size too small or too big for your feet, you increase its wear and tear. Wearing the correct size influences your shoe’s lifespan. If you tend to slip in and out of your shoe without untying laces then opt for a slip-on shoe. 

The right way to wear a shoe is by untying the laces, slipping in your feet till the end of the tip, pulling up the laces, and tying a knot. Get that perfect pair of campus shoes for you within the very comforts of your home by opting to shop at Rediff Online this season.

Opt For Waterproof And Anti-Sweat Solutions

If your shoe isn’t waterproof, you can spray its surface with waterproofing agents that are easily available in the market. They not only protect your shoes from unexpected changes in weather but also extend your shoe’s life. You should also go for anti-sweat solutions that would help reduce the odour of sweat. 

They can come in the form of a deodorizer or fragrance spray that can be sprayed on the insoles or the soles of the shoes before you take them out for a run. Wearing socks made from dry wicking materials would also help in reducing the stink of your shoes.

Keep these do’s and don’ts in mind for your campus shoes to make sure they remain your favorite pair for a while!
