Sometimes getting a shoe tree is the last option you have before saying goodbye to the pairs of shoes that you love but which are hard to keep in good shape.
When will you need a shoe tree for your shoes?
Shoe trees are highly practical tools. We own a lot of shoes that we should take good care of. In most shoes, marks of wear and tear will appear with time. No matter how good the material is or how expensive the shoes may have been, crease lines that appear with use give the shoes a worn-out look.
A straight last shoe should be kept in good shape, respecting the natural shape of the foot.
These boots are made for walking
Tall boots are one of the small pleasures of autumn and winter. They exist in different materials, colours and designs. Our favourite ones are made of leather, but… Why choose one if you can have many? However, it’s no secret that keeping boots in good condition is complicated. We have all seen the tricks using hangers with clips to hang the boots in order to keep them from slouching. But in the end, hanging boots will leave marks on them and, besides, dust and any dirt stuck on the soles of the boots will fall on whatever you might store under the boots in order to save space.
The best thing to do in this case is simply to buy shoe trees for boots: they are specially designed to keep the boots straight and prevent them from folding when storing them. This is especially recommended when winter season ends and good weather gives way to lighter footwear and our beloved boots end up in the shoe rack for months, waiting to be used again.
Storing the boots folded for a long time will result in marks, which is exactly what is avoided by using shoe trees.
Shoe tree may even be good for your pocket. Preserving your shoes so that they will look like new will reduce the frequency you need to replace them.
Always keep your shoes tidy and if possible, protected from dust. Check the best cleaning options according to the material the shoes are made of.
If you have leather shoes, apart from using a shoe tree to prevent marks and creases, we recommend taking care of them with a special cream that nourishes and protects the leather, preventing it from cracking, deforming and staining irreversibly.
The best thing about shoe trees is that they fit any footwear, both men’s and women’s. Adjusting to different sizes, and at an incredible price.
Learn to adjust a shoe tree correctly to keep your shoes looking like new. That’s the best way to take good care of your shoes, to enjoy them for longer and to keep them as good as new. Firm step for life, but without getting old!
