3 Ways to Extend the Life of Your Expensive Shoes

So, you’ve spent your check on those gorgeous Loubotins, and you can’t WAIT to take them out on the town! But there’s a little voice telling you to just keep them in the box so you don’t ruin them. Don’t worry! We’ve got just the tips to help you enjoy your red bottoms while simultaneously taking care of them!

We’re all guilty of not taking the best care of our things sometimes. We’re out late, we’re too busy, we’re broke. What if I told you that there are ways to keep your nice shoes nice, and it won’t cost you an arm or a leg, or very much time?

Check out these three tricks to keep your beauties new!

1) Add half soles and heel caps

A shoe repair man will add soles for roughly $20, and it will extend the life of your shoes. Keep your stiletto heels crisp and new with heel caps. You can purchase them for as little as $10 on Amazon!

2) Proper storage is essential

I know the urge to come home after a long day of work and toss those heels into the shoe closet. Don’t do it! It only takes a few minutes to store your shoes properly, and you’ll be glad you did! To avoid scratching, keep them separated. Keep your nice shoes in cute linen dust bags, and take the same bags with you while traveling for added convenience! There are some excellent deals online.

3) Get rid of the odors

Have you ever thrown out a decent pair of shoes because they omit an embarrassing odor? A humid environment can cause unpleasant odors to live in your shoes. Place charcoal pouches inside your shoes to help absorb odor and moisture! Amazon sells  great charcoal deodorizers from Moso Natural that are perfect for odor absorption!
