I just bought the most expensive pair of shoes I’ve ever owned and I want to take really good care of them. What should I be doing to store them safely?
Give them a light dusting off every time you take them off for the day. You can keep a rag by the door for that purpose, or a lot of nicer shoes come in cloth bags — I use the outside of the bag to dust mine off before storing them inside it.
You should also use a wooden shoe-tree when you take your shoes off. They’re pretty cheap, keep the shoe in the shape of your foot, and help absorb some of the moisture from the leather.
Be sure you’re rotating your footwear and not wearing the same pair every day — it takes anywhere from one to three days or even more for a shoe to dry out fully, depending on the climate. It may not feel like much, but a day’s worth of sweat is a lot, and you want to give that time to evaporate out of the leather rather than keeping it permanently damp.
