What Are Some Of The More Common Shoe Accessories And Why Do We Need Them

Aug 18, 2007
When we talk of shoe accessories we are speaking of those things that are made to help make your shoes last longer. These may include such things as shoetrees, shoe bags, shoe stretchers, and shoe polish.

One popular shoe accessory is the shoetree which is inserted into your shoes when you are not wearing them which helps keep your shoes in their original shape. This practice will keep the shoes from shrinking as well as keep them from becoming deformed, especially in the case of leather footwear. These accessories are also an excellent storage tool and since you can purchase these shoe trees in the form of racks that will hold a large number of shoes they will do double duty as a shoe tree and help reduce clutter.

Another hot item for the shoe enthusiast is a custom shoe bag. These accessories are an excellent choice for storing your footwear when you are traveling or if you have activities that require you to change shoes after work or a day of other activities. For example if you go straight to the gym after work, you can bring along your workout or exercise shoes in your shoe bag.

Sometimes you may find it necessary to stretch your shoes to make them fit better and this can be done quite easily with a shoe stretcher. These can be especially helpful to those who have conditions such as bunions or corns. These aren't the answer to all foot problems as some foot problems may require a visit for treatment from a podiatrist. Just be careful, leather can only be stretched so much before it tears.

One product that people may not think of as a shoe accessory is shoe polish which is used for maintaining a great number of shoes and boots by many people. If you want your shoes to last as long as possible it is essential that you use polish to keep them moisturized and conditioned so they will not dry and crack or become misshaped. Shoe polish is also excellent for covering and filling small cracks and scratches that may occur from normal wear. The practice of polishing your shoes properly can make your shoes last as long as possible and prevent them from being damaged more.

If your footwear is not leather then you will want to find the right maintenance methods for that particular type of shoe. If you have shoes that must be washed in water you may want to hand wash them and then hang them on a shoe tree to buy.
