THE EIGHT GOLDEN RULES FOR SHOE CARE
A NEW PAIR OF SHOES SHOULD NEVER BE WORN FOR MANY CONSECUTIVE HOURS. ONCE YOUR FEET ARE COMPLETELY ACCUSTOMED TO THE SHOES, YOU CAN BEGIN TO WEAR THEM ALL DAY.
NEVER WEAR THE SAME PAIR OF SHOES TWO DAYS IN A ROW. LET THEM REST FOR AT LEAST A DAY BEFORE WEARING THEM AGAIN.
ALWAYS USE A SHOEHORN WHEN PUTTING ON YOUR SHOES.
BEFORE REMOVING A LACE-UP SHOE, LOOSEN THE LACES COMPLETELY SO THE SHOE SLIPS OFF MORE EASILY.
ONCE SHOES ARE TAKEN OFF, INSERT THE MADE-TO-MEASURE SHOE TREES.
SHOE TREES SHOULD ALSO BE USED WHEN SHOES ARE WET FROM RAIN OR SNOW: LEFT TO DRY FOR AN ENTIRE DAY.
EACH TIME YOU WEAR A PAIR OF SHOES THEY SHOULD BE CLEANED AND POLISHED.
WHEN YOU DON’T WEAR YOUR SHOES, WAX AND PUT THEM IN A DRAWSTRING, AND KEEP DOWN IN A BOX.
