How to prolong the life of your shoes
We hope that the advice below will help prolong the life of your Charles Tyrwhitt shoes and retain their excellent appearance for years to come.
The Charles Tyrwhitt shoe care kit contains nearly everything you need to tackle most cleaning problems. Below are the key leathers and how they should be cleaned.
This type of leather/suede looks better with wear, and the crease marks and scuffs make the character and ruggedness of the shoe. If a shine is required use a natural polish applied with a duster.
A shoe tree is the best way to preserve the life of an expensive shoe. A great shoe tree like Charles Tyrwhitt’s is made from cedar wood and will not only absorb any excess moisture in the shoe, but will also maintain the shape of the shoe. Also shoes should never be worn 2 days in a row. They need the opportunity to breathe and let the moisture from the feet be absorbed.
Goodyear Welted Shoes
All our Goodyear Welted shoes feature ‘the Goodyear Welt’, this is a stripe of leather sewn around the shoe to secure the upper to the insole, making the shoe very durable. As this welt is outside the shoe, once the sole is worn they can be re-soled, therefore extending the life of the shoe.
