Shoe Care

Shoe love is true love!

If you show your sneakers some love and affection - they will love you back. Not only by having a longer life but sometimes even by giving you the opportunity to sell them when you are tired of them. If that isn't reason enough to take care of them - we dont know what is...

Here are some tips

Don't be afraid of Suede

Afraid of suede sneakers out of fear of ruining them? Suede is actually like any other leather – if you treat it with care, it will last a long time. And no, rain will not automatically ruin suede. Just remember to use a protection spray that will make it more durable against rain and dirt.

As use your suede sneakers, the suede will start to look a little matte down and uneven. Dirt can also ”attach” to the suede in another way than it would for an example on regular leather. Be calm, there is a simple solution. A suede brush will help you clean off the dirt and more importantly to re-fluff the suede pile – making it look as good as new. The more frequently you use the brush – the better the suede will maintain its luxuryous appearance.

If they're too tight, they ain't right!

We’ve all been there – we fall in love with a pair of sneakers that are only available in a size too small. Somehow we convince ourselves that we can make it work and push through the pain. They’re definately worth it.

Unfortunately we usually end up not using them because of the uncomfort. Or even worse, we wear them and then regret it as we are limping home. It is also common that they get worn out faster than they originally would as they material gets pushed to its limit by the feet being to big.

The bigger the better? Not in this case

So if we are not supposed to buy too small, we should be okay with buying too big? Actually, you should not have more than a halv centimeter space from your toe to the toe box. If you do go bigger, there is a good chance that you will get more creases in the leather/suede than you normally would. This due to the fact the sneaker doesn’t get properly “filled out” by your feet.

Another con is that you will probably have to tie the shoe laces harder than they are meant to be laced, just to keep the sneakers on.  This will put an unnatural load on the material and the seams. As a result the seams could bust open in parts of the sneaker.

Don't underestimate the power of the shoehorn

The most basic weapon we have in our sneaker arsenal – and probably the most under estimated one. Usually people use a shoe horn for their own comfort – making it easier to get the sneakers on. However, the shoe horn has a bigger and perhaps a more valuble purpose than that. It keeps your sneakers from getting busted in the heel.

Have you ever had a pair of Air Force 1s that are fully functional but are busted in the heel for an example? Trust the power of the horn. A big no no is also pushing you feet in and out of a pair of sneakers without un-tieing them. This can ultimately bust the material in the heel and this is not an issue of “bad quality” as many would think.

Don't say it - spray it

You probably know that you should protect your sneakers with some kind of protection spray. But do you actually do it? The ones that do, usually do it once when the sneakers are brand new and then never again. Big mistake.

You should think of the protection spray as a temporary shield on your sneakers. Weather and dirt will eventually wear this shield down until it is completely gone. Therefore you must spray them regularly to keep them protected. The “shield” makes them easier to clean as dirt will not attach in the same way it would without protection spray. If you are using your sneakers on a regular basis, they should be sprayed more frequently to keep them protected against water and dirt.

The quick fix cleaning

We don’t always have the time or energy to pull out our full-blown sneaker cleaning kit.  For those days there are in fact simpler options. Quick wipes are a great option for the lazy one looking for a quick or temporary fix.

They are also a good friend of the clumpsy one who is always spilling something eatable or have a knack for stepping in dog shit. Needless to say – they are  easy to take with you when your on the run or travelling.

Moisture? No thanks.

Living in the Nordics usually means that it is hard to avoid rain, if not impossible. We can protect the outside of our sneakers with protection spray. However we usually forget that moisture in our sneakers can damage the materials on the insides of them.

It’s the same thing when it comes to wearing sneakers on a hot summer day. You probably look and feel fresh AF but the insides of your sneakers will probably be moist from the sweat from your feet. This moisture is what bacterias live on that ultimately can create a bad odur in your sneakers. To prevent this, you can use special inserts or wooden shoe blocks that will actively soak up the moisture in your sneakers.

Dirt alert

One of the most common mistakes that we make as sneaker owners it to wait too long before we clean off the dirt from our sneakers. Eventually the dirt will grow into the material of the sneaker and it will be much harder if not impossible to get rid of.

In other words, try to get rid of the dirt asap. The best option is to regularly give your sneakers a full out cleaning using a harder brush on the sole and midsole and a softer one for the upper part of the sneaker. This of course together with a good cleaning solution. Finish the cleaning by wiping the sneaker off to get rid of all the dirt and foam that has gathered on the surface.
