Help us help you

Sofia Shoe Repair Services is here to help you when the zipper on your favorite pair of boots breaks, or you wear your heel down due to overpronation or oversupination. In the meantime, there are certain things you can do to help your shoes last as long as they possibly can: 
  1. When putting on your shoes, always use a shoe horn. This protects the heel from unnecessary wear.
  2. Always use cedar shoe trees after wearing. They're designed to absorb moisture and maintain the regular shape of your shoes.
  3. Allow shoes to dry completely, inside and out, by not wearing the same pair of shoes on consecutive days.
  4. Always use leather cleaner to remove common dirt and dust from your shoes before polishing. Then apply a leather conditioner prior to polishing. This extra step is a necessary precaution to protect the natural beauty of the leather.
  5. When needed, use shoe cream that is the same color or slightly lighter than the color of the leather. After the cream has dried, buff the shoes with a soft brush.
  6. Use a paste polish with shoe wax to polish your shoes regularly. Brush and rub with a soft cloth for a high gloss.
  7. When traveling, use shoe bags or wrap shoes in a soft material to protects the leather from scratches.
  8. Wet leather wears more quickly than dry. Use rubber overshoes to protect your shoes during foul weather. Always waterproof your leather.
  9. Bring in your footwear to Sofia Shoe Repair Services for a tune up or a free shoe care inspection.
