1. Wipe or dust off the surface of your shoes frequently.
2. Use a paste or cream polish to maintain the leather.
3. Examine the tips, soles and heels often. If you see rips or tears, get them to a shoe-repair store right away. If the soles are getting worn, replace them.
4. Use shoetrees to aid shoes in retaining their shape.
5. When shoes get wet, crumple up newspaper and stuff inside and allow to dry for a couple of hours. This also will help to keep the shape.
