Winter is both magical, but also very difficult. Sometimes on morale, but especially on clothes … and boots. It looks like the magic of this season will gradually fade once Christmas is over. The snow seems less white to us. The sun less present. In short, everything to lose its shine isn’t it? Never mind, it won’t happen. In addition, you will have the most beautiful boots to strut and bring life in this cold season.

How to counter the hardness of calcium on your precious purchase? Here are our tips.

Buying a protector

Good protection is the basis. This product is not there to increase your total bill. Rather, it is an investment. Buy the appropriate protector for the material of your boots (leather, suede, etc.) and combine with regular maintenance. This will extend the life of your pair of boots and allow them to do their job. Attention, it is important to ask if these shoes have already been treated. If this is the case, make sure that adding a protective product will not destroy the basic protection.

Maintain them well

No, it doesn’t stop at one session. A weekly maintenance of about 15 minutes will allow your boots to last not only the whole season, but many years. Before even wearing them for the first time, make sure you take the necessary steps to protect them. Getting in the habit of doing it can take time, but it’s worth all the time invested in it.

Buy shoe trees

These are not a luxury! They allow your boots, especially in leather, to keep their shape as well as absorb moisture and control odors. Who likes shoes that stink anyway? It is recommended to insert the shoe tree every day for optimal results. If not, do it at least at the end of the season to get them back in good shape next winter.

A little wipe

It may sound trivial, but putting a damp cloth over your boots when you get home will save their look. By passing the laundry, you remove the calcium that accumulates on your boots when you walk to avoid the formation of dark circles. Calcium is easily removed when wet. Once dried, that’s another story. Don’t take that risk.

End of season cleaning

When winter is behind you, yes it will happen one day, take a moment to clean your pair of boots and then add a layer of protector before putting them away. This long break will allow them to take it easy, rehydrate (in the case of leather shoes) and be ready for the next season.
