- Shoes like clothes should be impeccably maintained to insure a long life. As soon as soles and heels wear they should be attended to as soon as practical. It left to wear for too long a time then expensive rebuilding will be necessary.
- Shoes should be kept clean and polished to protect the leather. The polish acts as a barrier to ward off soil and water stains.
- Rotate your shoes to give them time to relax after wear. Try not to wear the same pair of shoes twice in a row.
- After wearing to maintain the proper shape, shoe trees should be inserted.

For gentlemen, cedar shoe trees are always a good choice. You can usually purchase them at fine shoe shops as well as on-line.
