Shoe care tips

1) Use Wooden Shoe Trees

2) Rotate Your Shoes

3) Use a Shoe Horn

4) Polishing Techniques

How many times have we bought a pair of shoes, they become our 'favourites' (both in terms of comfort and looks) and we wish in hindsight we had bought a second pair…but by then the model is discontinued?

Taking basic care of your best leather shoes can literally treble their life span. Even if you invest in new quality shoes every couple of years, your preferred pairs can still be 'on rotation' as part of your shoe collection – providing you with greater dress options for many years, at lower overall outlay.

We decided to invite Justin FitzPatrick – aspiring shoe maker, Shoe Snob blogger and artisan shiner at Gieves & Hawkes, No.1 Savile Row London – to be our Guest Expert.

Click on the above 4 links to see Justin's basic tips on how to preserve and extend the life of your shoes, plus some easy techniques to achieve a professional shine in the comfort of your own home.
