What can you do to preserve the beauty of your Santoni shoes?
There are a number of maintenance methods that you can use to give your Santoni the best care.
1. Keep them clean
When you wear shoes you cannot escape the fact that they get dirty. The most important thing is therefore to keep your shoes clean. So if you clean every evening the seams and surface of your shoes a little, it would make a huge difference. As a result filthiness doesn't have the chance to bite into the leather or to remain stuck in the seams and stitching.
To ensure that the leather is not accidentally damaged, you can use dry microfibre cloths or a special Santoni shoe brush for the stubborn dirt on the sole. If you do this every night it will take you 2 to 3 minutes at the most and your shoes will stay neat and clean.
In addition, you can give your shoe a kind of protective layer with special leather shoe spray. Do this regularly so that this layer stays on it.
2. Special shoe polish with beeswax
Beesway you might think? That's right. Santoni shoe polish contains beeswax and is even an important part. Thanks to the beeswax, your Santoni shoes will keep their shine. With a special emulsifier, the fats and acids of the beeswax are mixed with the water, so that no separation will take place. It is important to rub the beeswax evenly over the shoe. Let your shoes rest for a while so that everything dries well and then polish it.
Depending on how often you wear the shoes, it is advisable to brush them every month with special shoe polish. If you do not wear them every day, you can also do this every other month.
3. Shoe trees
Shoe trees are sometimes forgotten but are very important in the maintenance of shoes. Thanks to these tensioners, the Santoni shoe retains its shape.
The best time to put tensioners in your shoes is just after you have worn them. The shoes are then warm and slightly damp. When you put the Santoni shoe trees in your shoes immediately after wearing them, the folds that are created are smoothed. If you do not use tensioners, the pleats will probably stay in place and become more stubborn the more you wear the shoes.
Finally, it is very important to use the correct size shoe tensioner. Shoe trees that do not fit properly can seriously damage the Santoni shoes.
Do you not have a shoe tree on hand or are they all in use? As a temporary solution you can always put an old newspaper in your shoes.
4. Salt and brine traces during the winter months
During the winter period, salt and brine are regularly sprinkled and this can be a huge attack on your beautiful Santoni shoes. It is advisable to thoroughly clean your shoes at the end of the day and to remove all salt or brine residues. Grab a glass and fill it with ⅔ water and ⅓ vinegar. Gently rub your shoes with a soft cloth. Please note that you must grease your shoes again afterwards with shoe polish. Thanks to the vinegar you not only remove salt and brine, but also the layer of fat.
5. Use a shoelace
People sometimes think too easily about the consequences for not using a shoehorn. It is harmful for your shoes to put on your shoes with your finger. Over time this leaves traces and these will be clearly visible. So whenever possible, always use a shoelace to put on your shoes.
