Tresmode’s quick guide to shoe care
From first dates to grocery runs, work shenanigans to travel adventures, our faithful shoes walk us through life (quite literally). Our love affair with shoes is never ending but like every relationship, it needs work! So we’ve put together a quick shoe care guide for all shoe fanatics. With Tresmode’s specially curated shoe care kit, you can give your closet favourites some much-needed TLC. Here’s how:
A pair of shoes is a worthy investment and needs a great deal of care. But more often than not, we’re guilty of simply stuffing our shoes in the closet after a long day. Show your shoes (especially your precious suedes and leathers) some love by cleaning them after every wear, so they stay with you longer.
Presenting, Tresmode’s signature leather cleaner. This dry foam-based cleaner swiftly lifts off stains and debris while being gentle on the leather. The formula works beautifully for suede and canvas too.
And for those who like to go the extra mile in their suede shoes, worry not! Tresmode’s specialised suede cleaner and conditioner causes natural decomposition of the nastiest of shoe stains and debris. Once it has worked its magic, you can wipe it off easily without damaging the material.
Come rain or shine, your loved ones must feel protected. With the monsoons coming up soon, Tresmode’s Protection Cream comes to the rescue. It invisibly guards your shoes against water and stains. Perfect for leather, nubuck and canvas, you can now stride the rainy sidewalks in style.
Tresmode’s Mink Oil Nourishing Cream is another rich concoction that cleans and conditions leather, prepping it for the harsh weather. It eases into the seams and stitching and breathes new life into patent, reptile and metallic finishes.
In case you find yourself in a sudden downpour, make sure you dry your shoes as soon as you get the chance. Wrap them in old newspapers so all the moisture is absorbed. Keep away from heater or hair dryers as this could make the leather brittle.
Bring Back the Lustre
With regular wear and tear, your shoes are bound to lose that charming new shoe shine. Rekindle your relationship with a gleaming polishing routine.
Tresmode’s shoe polishing cream works wonders for all kinds of leather, including the textured and delicate finishes. It resists stains and buffs easily to bring that elusive sparkle in your shoes.
And for the final flourish, we present to you Tresmode’s Shoe Buff and Quick Shine Sponge.
Our shoe buff is specially designed for a dry cleaning routine, especially for suede shoes that are supremely sensitive to water. It can also be used after cleaning and polishing to make your shoes as good as new!
The Quick Shine Sponge is a one-step fix to all your leather and synthetic shoes on those super busy days, for that added shimmer in your step.
Take a Break
We’ve all got that one pair of shoes that works well with just about anything. But even your daily staples need the day off. Make sure you rotate your shoes and give your go-to pair some space.
Move in Together
Find a cool, dark space to store your shoes, tucked away from the sunlight. Avoid using your basement or garage that could get excessively warm or stuffy. Cover your shoes in good quality shoe bags. If you do not plan on using your shoes for a long time, store them in their original box or plastic containers. You could stuff the pair with acid paper to help retain the shape over time.
These little gestures will go a long way and make sure your shoes accompany you to a lot more adventures to come. Now that you know how to take your shoe relationship to the next level, get Tresmode’s life-saving shoe care kit to earn those brownie points here!
