Tender Loving Shoe Care

I've been super busy reading for an exam (and going to a pre-Christmas party ;P) but since my new shoes arrived, I took the time to polish them and my favourite other pairs as well. It's pretty calming to just concentrate on rubbing the cream in and polishing, a great way to let your mind relax a bit.

All of my babies lovingly polished! The New Rocks both are my favourites of the shoes I wear often. In addition to them I have yet another pair of NRs, little wedges from Spirit Store and my grandmother's old winter boots for the time when it's super slippery and lots of snow.

Shiny! I've already put my Lita's in the closed to wait for the spring or special indoor occasions. It's
so wet outside that I don't dare to take suede shoes outside. On the Reactor sole New Rocks you can
see how the salt used to keep the ice at bay dyes shoes, it leaves a white "water line" on the sole and
doesn't want to come off.

And these are the new ones! They are Trench High boots by Unif. I was browsing similar styles but totally fell in love
with the large zippers, and I like my shoes to be real leather when possible.

Look at the size of that! The zippers are not just for show, so I don't have to open the laces when putting these on.

I've only worn them for one night, but they are just the right size. They might take some time to be broken in since
the leather is fairly stiff, but I'm sure it will be worth it :)

    1. Thank you so much! They are one of my absolute favourites :) I'd just need to take them to the shoe maker to get soles with more grip, now they are too slippery on snow and ice.

    1. Thanks! I've seem a lot of similar ones sold, but most are fake leather, and I feel fake leather shoes are often expensive considering that they don't last as well as real leather.
