Louise M Blog 3 Low Cost Ways to Prolong The Life of Your Shoes

You often have shoes in your wardrobe that could be repaired rather than replaced. This is particularly valuable if you love your existing shoes and would love to be able to keep wearing them. You will also save money as repair is cheaper then a new pair of quality shoes. You will also be helping the environment by retaining shoes longer rather than throwing them in the bin.

Here are 3 easy and low cost ways to fix your shoes to keep them longer.

① Replace the piece at the bottom of your heel. This is called a top lift. The top lift protects the material on the heel of the shoe. It is important to replace this piece before it is worn down and starts to damage the material covering the heel. Take your shoes to a quality shoe repairer to have the top lift replaced at minimal cost.

② Keep an eye on the outsole of your shoes. This is the piece that sits on the bottom of your shoes, extending from the heel to your toe. The outsole can wear thin or a hole can develop due to the surfaces your walk on or the amount of time spent in your shoes. If you notice the outsole is damaged simply take your shoes to a quality shoe repairer to replace. This will give you the extra time in your much loved shoes you were hoping for.

③ Something that is so simple and inexpensive and often undervalued or overlooked is shoe polish. If your leather shoes are looking dull or worn out use a quality cream shoe polish all over the leather upper which covers the foot, and the heel, then buff with a soft cloth. You will be amazed how this brings the leather back to life and you will continue to wear your much loved shoes over more time. 

So when you love your shoes, want to help the environment, or save money  follow these three easy and inexpensive ways to prolong the life of your shoes.
