Hey Heel Lovers,
I wanted to share a practice that I use and swear by. We all have those heels that we love and have the hardest time breaking up with because something tragic has happened to them, right? Our heart breaks when one of the straps pop, or even when the heel gets scuffed badly or breaks. We cringe in agony when a light-colored suede gets stained, or if oil drops on the leather. We battle the inner turmoil of the thought of throwing them away. Don’t do it!
Instead find a shoe repair shop near you and take your shoes there. A good shoe repair shop can do wonders for your shoes. They can repair the damage that to your shoes and heart. A good one can return your favorite pair of shoes to you like new. So don’t you dare throw those beautifully crafted heels in the trash because of the scuffed leather on the heel. They can repair the leather and/or replace the leather in the same hue as the rest of the shoe, resuscitating it’s life span. Or if the stitching becomes undone, take it to them, most repair shops have the equipment to repair even the smallest of details. When the tap on your heels come off and the shoe gets damaged from scraping the pavement, shoe repair will do the trick. I’ve had all my taps replaced with
When dealing with textures such as leather and suede, ask your shoe repairer for tips on how to prevent future damage from accidents and general wear and tear. I sometimes use Scotch Guard on my more sensitive textured shoes to prevent stains from setting in. Also, using a shoe conditioner will prolong the life of your shoes by conditioning then and keeping leathers soft and supple. Ask your shoe repairer for a special suede brush for your suede shoes, this keeps the suede looking fresh and new, or simply use a clean and unused toothbrush.
Shoe repair and preventive care is surely the way to go when trying to preserve and get the most out of your shoe investment. Plus, you save money versus buying a new pair.
