Hey guys! Today I’m discussing the oh-so-annoying issue of ruined shoes. Has this ever happened to anyone? You get a new pair of shoes, you’re so anxious to wear them, you opt out of waterproofing them and then BAM, it rains? Yeah, me too.
I’ve also scuffed, ripped, dirtied and well, pretty much ruined perfectly good pairs of shoes from consciously neglecting them. One thing that hasn’t happened to me yet is a broken heel – fingers cross it never happens! That would be the worst.
So how do you keep your boots looking fresh and clean forever?!
Well, for starters I usually use a waterproofing wax on my leather boots that you apply with a clean sponge. It’s kind of annoying because you have to let them sit for 24 hours to dry – but after that it’s all good. In the past I’ve used a spray too but I find the wax works better.
It also has a lot to do with common sense. For example, if I know it’s going to rain I’m not going to wear my crushed velvet ankle boots. That would be incredibly dumb. If it’s snowing, I’m not going to throw on my knee high suede ones either (even though they would look sooo cute).
I’m pretty simple when it comes to taking care of my shoes but somehow it works!

I’m about to head out the door to go to rural Ontario and could sure use a pair too!
