Here is our guide on how to take care of your shoes this fall and winter without any hassle.
If we look at your shoe collection for the fall weather, it is very likely that we are going to find leather shoes or cognac boots. The best tip to take care of your leather shoes is to make them waterproof before you step outside wearing them. The first step to do this is to wipe off any dust or dirt from your choice. After that, spray them with leather protectant spray which is going to make them all set for the months coming up ahead. This will not only make them waterproof but will also add a lot of shine to them and wipe off any dust if present as well.
You can also do a spot test to see if the leather protectant is working appropriately or not. Just in case if you do not see any color fading off, then you can go ahead and spray the entire shoe.
Leather boots or formal shoes, in general, come into our minds when we think of shoes that absolutely require some waterproofing. Street style bloggers have proved that leather shoes are not just for the office or formal wear, but they can be used for new styles. You can do the same for your sneakers as well. Just spray them with the same protection spray and watch magic taking place.
