I like to have clean shoes/footwear and polish the leather ones often, spray water repellant on the suede ones and have heels repaired when necessary, cheaper than buying new shoes. NOTHING looks worse that someone beautifully dressed up and dirty footwear!
Yes, I do polish them, but no so often as I have so many pairs of shoes that I wear different ones often.
I seem to have had a fetish for shoes, and do not quite know why I have so many.
They never seem to wear out or even out date, so I have them all for years.
I have had a pair of Doc Martin boots for 23 years and they have not needed heeling despite wearing them daily for several seasons, however, they need regular polishing and green is a hard polish to get
There is nothing worse than seeing either male or female impeccably dressed and then looking down at their feet to see dirty shoes and often worn heels. It's a lazy habit and spoils the look one sets out to achieve, so yes, my shoes are polished, my sneaker brushed or wiped over with a damp cloth so they last a long time. I really enjoy seeing a man with shiny shoes/boots. Shows he takes pride in his appearance.
