Time To Breathe.
We all have our favorite pair of shoes, but wearing your favorite shoes daily is not the way to go. All footwear needs time to air out and breathe. Try to wear the same pair shoes twice or three times a week. Your shoes will last longer when they are able to rest and recover their shape.
Save Footwear From a Rainy Day.
Sometimes we don’t have on our handy rain boots when it rains. If you are wearing leather shoes in the rain, you want to dry them at room temperature and avoid picking up your blow dryer. When your shoes are damp, do not put them back in the box because it causes odor and bacteria.
*P.S. When you get a new pair of shoes, spray with a water protector so rain doesn’t penetrate your shoes. You want to do this at least four times a year.
Freshen Up Those Soles.
Sprinkle baking soda at night before you go to bed to remove the nasty foot odor from your shoes. In the morning, take your shoes outside and shake off the baking soda. Also, you can buy shoe insoles to put into your shoes.
