The often forgotten art of shoe polishing will always prolong the life of your shoes as well as enhancing the appearance. Manufacturers take great care to ensure the shoes that you buy have a good appearance and many carry leaflets to ensure the correct selection of shoe care products. Mr Andrew Roberts and his staff are always on hand to offer help and advice on the best ways to look after your new purchase.
Many of the shoes purchased from David Roberts can be returned to the manufacturers to be repaired, this will involve putting the shoes back in their original last (the device on which the shoes were originally shaped and formed) to ensure that the shoes are put back into their original shape. Most shoes will take at least two manufacturers repairs in their lifetime.
One tip to remember is that all shoes need time to rest after being worn, so never wear a pair of shoes day after day as you will shorten its life quite considerably. Try to rotate your shoe selection giving the worn shoes time to rest. Try to place worn shoes in an area where they can benefit form air circulation, this will assit the drying of moisture that accumulates within their lining. Never force dry any wet or damp shoes as this will severely damage the natural properties within your shoes. Wherever possible put worn shoes onto shoe trees to pull shoes back into shape, most effective when the shoes have just been taken off and the leather is still warm.
