Style: Best Foot Forward

Fine footwear requires care.

· Never wear shoes two days in a row, because they become moist from perspiration. Let them dry for at least 24 hours between wearings. 
· Never dry wet shoes next to a heater or fire; doing so will shrink and harden the leather. Instead, stuff the shoes with newspaper and leave them to dry in ambient room temperature. 
· Always use shoe trees made of cedar, which absorbs moisture.  
· Using a shoehorn prolongs the life of your shoes. Forcing your foot into a pair of shoes can break the heel counter, causing the back lining to break down prematurely. 
· When shoes begin to appear worn, use clear, natural shoe cream instead of colored. 
· When polishing, apply heat with a hair dryer to open up the pores of the leather for greater absorption. 
· A combination of shoe cream and polish is preferred. Shoe cream is absorbed deep into the grain of the leather and helps restore it, while polish produces a higher gloss. 
· Use fine sandpaper to remove scratches on white bucks, and touch them up with a buck bag, a small pouch of white powder you can tap onto the shoes.
