It is important to give a lasting first impression. And trust me when I say this, you do not want to give a bad impression, especially when showing up for an interview or an important meeting with customer. Little things like un-tucked shirt or an unpolished shoe can go a long way into deciding your fate.
Here, we aim to provide some tips regarding how to make your shoes appear clean and tidy. If you follow the advice given here, then you will never face embarrassment because of your shoes.
You will need to think about what you need when you want to clean your shoes. Make sure you have the proper inventory. Important things include shoe polish, conditioner and a piece of cloth. Use a clean piece of cloth in the process. After collecting all the important items, start the shoe cleaning process by wiping your shoes with a wet piece of cloth. Cleaners can be used as an auxiliary for better results, but make sure that the cleaner does not damage the surface of the shoes. Afterwards, use a dry towel or piece of cloth to soak up the moisture from the surface of the shoe and allow to it dry out completely.
After cleaning the shoes with a moist cloth and drying it up, you should apply some conditioner on it. This will increase the life of your shoes. Choosing the right conditioner is important. You should do proper research and ask for the advice of the salesperson present in the stores. Do not deviate from what is specified in the instructions for use. Leave your shoes for a while after applying conditioner.
You are all set to apply the polish on your shoes. You will need good polishes that can keep your shoes shiny and clean for a day or two. There are a number of things to be considered here as well. First of all, it would be wise if you get the same colored polish as your shoes. If you want a polish for black colored shoes, then the process becomes easy. You will find many types of black shoe polishes in tubes and containers. If your shoes have a particular shade of brown, then look for the same colored shoe polish.
Your technique is also important when it comes to polishing your shoes. Put small amounts of polish on a brush and apply on the shoes with circular movements. Cover all areas of the shoe equally well. Now leave the shoes for some time. Finally, if you are looking for an extra edge, you may use a damp cloth to rub the outside of the shoes after doing all of the above to make your shoes look even better.
So, basically you should get the proper conditioner and polish for your shoe. Refrain from using low quality accessories on your shoes as they may fade the color of the shoes.
