Treat your shoes
Just like the skin on your face needs moisturizing to maintain its soft look, so does the leather on your shoes require care to stay in shape. Give your leather some love at least once a week – and your shoes will last forever.
You might think taking care of your shoes is a waste of time because you’ll buy new shoes soon enough anyway? Well go ahead, buy new shoes! But would it hurt letting the old ones stay in the closet looking as great as ever, ready to be worn whenever you want?
Shoe care products
We are proud to offer the right shoe care kit for all our models and styles, check the product specification and find the right brush, shoe cream and leather shampoo for your pair of Blankens.
Why do your Blankens shoes come with a shoe bag? Because if you store your shoes in the shoe bag when they’re not in use, it will help shade them from light that can harm the leather and its colour. The bag will also keep your shoes away from dust and protect them from being scratched by other objects in your closet.
Leather soles are not only a work of art but are also sturdy and resistible to most weathers (although wearing leather soles the rainiest day of the year when you have a lot of outdoor hours planned might not be the best idea). So – keep your leather soles the way they are. Letting a cobbler put a rubber sole on is something you can do even though we wouldn’t recommend it. Why? The leather in the soles is a natural material that breaths and keeps your feet cool. It shapes itself to your feet and is the most comfortable resting place for your foot during summer months and when indoors. After what very well might be years, when the leather sole is finally worn out, you simply just have it re-soled and your shoe is as good as new again.
Last but not least – don’t overuse your shoes. Meaning: no matter how much you love them, for the sake of your feet and their health, try altering and not wearing the same shoes two days in a row.
