Clean shoes properly and dry them thoroughly before storing them.
Apply leather conditioner to leather uppers.
You may use shoe trees or adjustable shoe horns to retain the shape of the shoes and smoothen the toe boxes when storing them.
Alternatively, acid-free tissue paper or rolled-up athletic socks can be used as stuffing materials.
Stuff shoes just enough to help retain their shape without stretching them.
Allow shoes to rest for a period of time before inserting stuffing material to allow any residual moisture to evaporate after wearing the shoes.
Otherwise, the insert could trap humidity within the shoes and lead to deterioration.
Stuff shoes with just enough material to help retain their shape and smoothen the toe box and heel without stretching these areas.
A cool and well-ventilated storage space is ideal for frequently-used shoes.
A good option is an open front rack or cabinet that allows air to circulate around your footwear and provide room for your footwear to “breathe”.
Abnormal temperature and humidity weaken fibre, turn leather shoes brittle and may cause glue to harden and loosen.
For a longer term storage of up to 6 months, using plastic shoe boxes will protect your shoes from dust, sunlight and mildew.
Frequency of Use
The same pair of shoes should not be worn every day.
Our shoes absorb the perspiration of our feet, thus we need to alternate our shoes to give them ample time to dry and maintain their shapes well.
All shoes should not be stored away and kept unused for more than 6 months.
The components of the shoes from upper material to outsoles will turn stiff and brittle, and glue will loosen.
