Must-Have Shoe Care Products

If you’ve got a new pair of boots or sneakers recently, shoe care is an absolutely must. Whether your new shoes are crafted from suede, leather, canvas or rubber, keeping them box fresh for as long as possible can sometimes be tricky. Here’s an easy to follow guide on the must-have shoe care products you’ll need.

#1 Shoe care for Dr. Martens

From their classic patent shoes to their signature 8-eye leather lace up boots, Dr. Martens like other boots need some TLC to keep them looking their best. For their patent leather styles we would recommend adding some patent cleaner to your basket. The water-based formula gently cleans patent leather and vinyl footwear with no harsh phosphates or chemicals and is ideal for restoring shine to leather boots and shoes.

#2 Shoe care for leather

For leather footwear we suggest regularly buffing with wax to keep their shine, cover any scuff marks and protect the leather. If you’ve added a pair of boots to your wish list this year, Grenson have a wax for you. Made from a blend of natural waxes and oils, including beeswax, Carnauba and Turpentine Oil apply a small amount to a soft cloth and work into the leather gently. Once it’s dry buff with a brush until your boots are back to their original shine.

#3 Suede and UGG boot care products

Providing us with toasty feet during the winter months with their wool inner and water resistant suede, UGG boots need to be looked after to maintain their fashion and functionality. Luckily for us, UGG have created a selection of care products to keep your leather or sheepskin boots looking brand new. From leather balm for their waterproof boots to suede protector spray you can be sure they are protected from any rain, snow, dirt or stains.
