Everyone wants their beloved boots to last forever…well, that’s a little bit of an exaggeration, but you get the point, right? We all want to keep and use our boots for a long time. If you think that it’s not possible, then this article is for you!
We have gathered the most useful tips to make your boots last longer.
First of all, you should always protect your boots from wetness. If you expect to brave the rain or snow, it is best to keep your leather boots at home and wear something that is more appropriate for the weather. If you really want to wear them, there is also an option to make your boots waterproof. There are available protective sprays that can protect your shoes from spills and all types of liquids.
Another tip to remember is to store your boots properly. Keep them away from dust by keeping them in a nice box. You may also want to use boot trees to prevent them from having creases. These are readily available in online stores.
For the heels, it is ideal to replace damaged heels as early as possible. The longer you wait to have your boots fixed, the more expensive it will be. Also, changing the heels of your shoes is much cheaper than buying a new one.
For your hiking boots, clean the mud by letting it dry first before brushing it off with a brush. It will also be helpful to use a boot wax. If you have the budget, you can also purchase a suede brush and suede eraser.
For added protection for the soles of your boots, you can use a protective rubber sole. You can get this in shoe repair shops. The additional sole is recommended especially during winter season.
Remember to consider your boots as investment. With this in mind, it will be easier for you to do the tips we have listed above in order to make your boots last longer.
