How to Care for Your Leather Footwear

Leather footwear is the one indispensible accessory every man in the corporate environment should own at least a couple of pairs of. Your shoes say a lot about your character. However, for many of us, we cannot be bothered to spend any time taking care of the two items upon which we rest our feet daily at work.

Caring for your shoes is something every man should know, even if he may not spend the time to do it himself. Sure, shoe shining services are a dime a dozen in the city, but there’s something deeply satisfying about cleaning and waxing and polishing a pair of shoes by yourself, to ensure that your footwear look the best at all times.

We’ve put together a comprehensive guide to caring for your shoes, no matter what colour they are, as long as you have the right colour polish in your kit. Together with local shoemaker Ed Et Al and August Man A-Lister Wayne Pereira, we hope you’ll find the time this weekend to shine your leather footwear prior to the start of the work week.
