Regular routine care would keep your shoes in tip-toe shape. Here are some pointers that may extend the lifespan of your shoes:

- Prior to wearing your new leather or imitation leather shoes, give them a protective coat of polish. Protect canvas shoes by spraying them with silicone.
- After every wearing, dust or brush your shoes to remove any dirt
- Once or twice per week, polish using a neutral paste or cream—or one that matches the shoes' color. Apply the polish and allow it to dry. Rub well with a soft cloth and buff using a soft brush.
- For shoes with wooden heels, put on lemon oil to the wood
- Put on a light coating of castor oil or petroleum jelly to patent leather shoes.
- Take out water and salt stains from leather shoes by rubbing using a cloth dipped in a dilute vinegar and water solution. Polish normally when the shoes are dry.

Saving Your Sole
When the soles of your new shoes are leather, bring them to a shoe repair shop and have thin rubber sole guards put on them.

Although this may cost you more, but it will make your shoes last longer and look great as they age.
