You’ve invested in a great pair of stylish, comfortable boots for this winter season so how do you make sure you get the most wear while keeping them looking like new?

Winter weather can wreak havoc on your shoes so here are a few simple steps you can take to make sure your boots go the distance this winter and in the many more to come.

1. Dust ‘em off!

By keeping your boots clean this season, you will avoid the material becoming stained and zippers, buckles rusting.  Wiping down your boots with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or debris that may be on them will go a long way to protect them in the long run.  Not to mention it will keep you looking fashionably sharp too!

Microtexture ankle boots like NICELY by No! Shoes are right on trend this season. A little dusting off after wear will ensure they remain stylish all winter long.

2. Conditioning

Just like you wouldn’t forego moisturising your skin in the winter, it pays to condition and moisturises your leather boots. To enhance the water resistance of your shoes and prolong their life, investing in a leather conditioner and applying it regularly could be a good move.

Applying leather conditioner is simple, you just dab the conditioner on a microfiber cloth and rub it into the shoes until it absorbs.  

Classic ladies boot styles like ARRIVE from MG Footwear will stay stylish and fashionable for many years to come, so it is well worth the investment.

3. Prevention is better than cure

Weatherproofing is simple and a great step to prolonging your shoes’ lives. You can purchase a weatherproofing treatment or spray from most shoe stores or from the internet. These sprays are easy to use and work well to protect your shoes from the harsh winter elements when used regularly.
