Inclement Weather, Creasing, and Drying: Protect Your Oxford Steel Shoes!

It is important to take care of your Oxford Steels to ensure that your shoes have longevity and maintain their top-notch look. Today, we want to talk about some ways to keep your Oxford Steel Shoes looking and feeling amazing!

Inclement Weather 

If you find yourself in rainy weather, don’t panic! There are certain ways to make sure that your Oxford Steels are not permanently damaged. For example, it may be a good idea to remove the insole, so that water does not get trapped between the insole and the bottom of the shoe. Furthermore, stuffing your shoes with an absorbent material such as newspaper may help the shoes better dry. Check out our CEO, Pilot, and Wallace styles which are made with Goodyear/Storm Welt Construction to promote longevity. 

Drying Leather Shoes

When drying leather shoes, it is important to not use too much heat. Excessive heat can cause cracking in the leather. Avoid this all together by allowing your Oxford Steels to air dry. Stuffing newspaper in the shoes can help absorb some of that moisture while they dry. 

Creasing in Leather 

Creasing in leather shoes can be frustrating, and creases can be hard to get out once they form. So, we wanted to include a couple of measures that you can take in order to avoid this. First, shoe trees are a great idea to help the shoes maintain their original shape when they are being worn. Be sure to make sure that there are no objects or shoes laying on top of your Oxford Steels, putting them at risk for accidental creasing. In addition, Oxford Steels are made with a puncture resistant feature, which makes them a great option for when you are on the job. Proper fitting shoes will also decrease the amount of creasing. This will eliminate any loose-fitting leather or additional room that you don’t need.
