Here's another important part of extending the life of your shoes.
STORE YOUR SHOES IN CEDAR SHOE TREES
You have 125,000 sweat glands in your feet--all of them pouring moisture into your shoes. That is why it makes sense to rotate your shoes and, on their days off, put cedar shoe trees in them. Cedar's unique wicking action absorbs moisture, acid, and salt, thereby reducing cracking and deterioration of leather. Cedar shoe trees also add comfort by smoothing out linings and insoles, and enhance appearance by maintaining the shape of the shoes.
There are many different brands and styles of cedar shoe trees. The brand we carry here at Edgewood Drive Shoe Repair is Rochester Cedar Shoe Trees. If you are not wearing your shoes, they should have cedar shoe trees in them. Don't forget those golf shoes. Not only will you be extending the life of your shoes but you will have a nice, aromatic closet.
