SKECHERS Q&A: Weather and Leather

What do you recommend for taking care of your shoes in the rain and the snow?  How do I know what shoes are right for what conditions?

Tim the Shoe Guy says:

When the weather starts turning rainy or snowy, don’t forget to pre-treat your leather, suede and fabric shoes so they keep your feet dry and stay looking their best.

For suede shoes and boots especially, we recommend at least one full application of a suede specific “rain and stain” spray treatment.  Suede can discolor when it gets wet, so pre-treating your new suede boots is highly recommended.

Smooth leather usually repels a light rain, but if it’s pouring, or you’re walking in snow, you’ll want to protect your smooth leather shoes and boots too.  There are many fine leather “rain and stain” treatments available.  Don’t forget to clean your smooth leather after walking in snowy streets, as the salt used to de-ice sidewalks can stain leather shoes.

Fabric and synthetic shoes or boots, especially water-resistant or seam-sealed rain boots, are often ideal for wet weather, but if you’re not sure if your footwear is waterproof, giving them a treatment with a fabric protector like Scotchgard™ is a great idea.  We don’t advise using heavier silicone sealing treatments because it will prevent your footwear from being able to breathe.

When the temperatures drop, we recommend getting boots or shoes with insulation to keep your feet nice and warm, like faux fur-lined shoes or boots with 3M™ Thinsulate™ insulation.  Skechers makes lots of different warm and snuggly shoe and boot options to ensure you make it through the chilly temperatures with warm, dry feet.

Shoe Cleaning and Care Tips from the SKECHERS Shoe Guy

Show your shoes some love by taking good care of them, and they’ll last longer and look better! Here are three easy steps to ensure your shoes will be protected, clean, and long-lasting.

Protect your shoes – I always recommend that you protect a new pair of shoes before wearing them, especially if you’re planning on wearing them in wet weather.  For leather and suede shoes, there are many very good brands of protective “rain and stain” treatments specific to those materials.  For non-leather and fabric shoes, there are fabric-specific spray treatments that offer excellent protection against water and staining.  Suede, especially, needs to be treated so that water will not discolor it.

Clean your shoes – I never recommend machine washing shoes.  Sure, it might get them clean, but the spin cycle and the dryer can damage the shoe and shorten its life.  Instead, there are lots of great products designed to clean and reinvigorate shoes.  Leather and suede shoes and boots get a leather or suede cleaning treatment, and fabric or non leather shoes can be cleaned with mild soap, warm water, and a soft cloth.

Treat your shoes – Sometimes people complain that their shoes wear out quickly, but most of the time you can keep your shoes healthy by giving them a treatment every so often. For leather shoes, I suggest using a leather lotion or mink oil to keep the leather supple. Suede shoes also should be treated and brushed to ensure the finish is always looking its best. It’s always a good idea to rotate wearing your shoes so that you aren’t wearing the same pair every day, week in and week out, as that also shortens the life.

Give your shoes a home – Not surprisingly, one of the best places to keep your shoes is their box. Keeping your shoes in their box is a good way to keep them clean and safe between wearings. If you’re going to store your shoes for a while (like keeping your warm boots for the summer) it’s a good idea to put the shaping forms back into them to keep them looking their best.
