A Look At Shoes: Creating and Maintaining A Lean Closet

April 13, 2014

Often we pay more attention to maintaining our clothes than our shoes. Our clothes get laundered, repaired and stored appropriately, this helps us get a lot more mileage out of our clothing. As a shoe lover I pay just as much attention to my shoes. I try to clean them after each wear,  take them to the cobbler as soon as the need arises and I use sole protectors on the bottoms of most of my shoes. I see looking after my shoes as an integral part of creating and maintaining a lean closet because they last longer. I’ve whittled my shoe collection down to a two digit figure and have invested in caring for them and thinking carefully about what types of shoes I need, what fits my lifestyle and what maintaining them would cost. My go-to method of looking after my shoes and making them last longer has been the sole protecting product Protect Your Pumps. It’s just a clear adhesive that you stick onto your shoes that protect them from wear. This is especially wonderful for designer shoes that have soft leather soles. I use them on both my designer shoes and other cheaper shoes.

How do you look after your shoes? Have you got any tips and tricks to share?
