At Jump we believe, just as it is important to look after your feet, it is also important to look after your shoes!
Children’s footwear is no different to adults. Just like we polish our shoes and try to maintain the leather and materials, it is vital that we take care of our littles one’s shoes too if we want them to keep looking smart and prolong the shoes lifespan.
Try to give your shoes the best conditions for a long, happy life with regular maintenance.
If a pair of shoes is being worn every day or 3-5 times a week, we would recommend a shoe care routine. This may differ depending on weather conditions and amount of usage but trying to polish and protect every 2 weeks is a good way to preserve the leather and look of a shoe.
Shoe Manufacturers and Brands are very aware of all the various places and ways a shoe gets worn. The toes can suffer badly (it seems the front of a shoe makes a good break for a scooter!), so they do their best to put rubber or scuff resistant materials in these areas of a shoe to prevent damage to the leather.
Please bear all these factors in mind when you are purchasing your child’s shoes, especially if they are prone to scuffing up their shoes. If this is the case, it may be best to look to shoes that provide some extra protection where needed.
Well cared for shoes last longer and look great!
