J and J Shoes offer the following Shoe Care Tips to increase
the life of your shoes.
Invest in Cedar Shoe Trees
Cedar shoe trees can extend the life of your leather shoes up to three
times their expected life span. They draw moisture out of your shoes
which causes deterioration of leather, thread, and other shoe materials.
Retains toe and heel counter shape. Cedar shoe trees will re-awaken
the shoe's natural structural memory, and prevent the leather from wrinkling
We at M J and J Shoe Repair carry a full line
of Roychester and Ambassador Shoe Trees for your convenience.
Shoes need a day off. If you want your fine leather shoes to last
longer, never wear them for two consecutive days. Rotate your
shoes with another pair of shoes and let them rest with cedar
Smooth Leather - Clean your shoes periodically with leather cleaner.
Put in your cedar shoe trees and let them air dry. (Shoes should
never be put close to heat sources which can dry out the leather.)
When shoes are dry, polish them with a quality wax based polish.
Rub the polish into the leather with a soft cloth, use a small
brush to get into creases and welt, then buff with a horse hair
brush and or cloth. Repeat process for a better shine.
Suede & Nubuck - The key to keeping suede and nubuck in top shape
is preventative maintenance. Before you wear the shoes, protect
them with a water and stain repellent designed specifically for
suede and nubuck. As soon as you notice water isn't beading up,
spray them again. Use a suede cleaner and suede brush to keep
your shoes looking good. For light color delicate uppers use nylon
brush, for durable outdoor shoes you can use a brass brush.
Adding a sole protector prolongs the life of your shoes. Stylishly
thin, long wearing rubber top sole protects the outer sole from
wear and tear. Water resistant and skid proof, protective soles
will make any pair of leather soled shoes last a lifetime.
