 Whether you are out with friends or at dinner with your partner, there is something that is bound to happen to your pair of pumps. To help you overcome this problem, the team here at Wildfire have gathered five helpful maintenance tips that are sure to keep your heels intact! So, girl, if you want to find out how to keep your high heels looking flawless, then keep on reading!

 

Tip 1 – Keep them clean

One of our most helpful maintenance tips for your favourite pair of heels is to keep them clean. There is nothing worse than watching your new pair of all-white heels slowly turn to a shade of brown after wearing them for the day. That is why we recommend keeping your pumps clean.

 

The best way to do this is by avoiding areas that will dirty your shoes. Imagine strutting your stuff in the white pair of BOTANY whilst you are out with the girls. If people spill their drinks or food on the ground, you can rest assured that your set of block heels will succumb to their pitfall. 

 

We know that no one likes getting their shoes dirty, especially when food and drinks are involved. That is why we recommend steering clear of situations that could lead to dirty heels. It is a challenge, but girl, we know you have got this in the bag! 

 

Tip 2 – Correct storage methods

 

Another hot tip that you can follow when maintaining your heels is to store them correctly. Most girls are unaware of this, but how our shoes are stored can impact their longevity. Whether it is a pair of low heels or high heels, your shoes will need to get stored correctly. 

 

We recommend storing your pair of heels in a cool and dry place. The impact of sunlight and artificial light can alter the colour of your heels and ruin their outer material. There is nothing better than the feeling you get of looking after your favourite set of heels

 

You will love placing your pumps in a cool, dry, and protected area in your house. Whether it is the shoe rack in the garage or your bedroom wardrobe, your heels will stay clean and protected all day long. 

 

Tip 3 – Avoid wet weather

 

One thing that every girl should know by now when trying to protect her pair of stiletto heels is to keep them away from wet weather. There is nothing worse than wearing your favourite pair of pumps in the stormy winter weather. You will find that this type of weather can wear down your high heels a lot quicker. 

 

The outer material can not always handle the harsh weather conditions, and the intense rainfall can make your open toe heels deteriorate a lot quicker. It can sometimes feel unavoidable when you go out during the winter season. One way we recommend keeping your heels out of the wet weather is to bring an extra pair of shoes with you

 

Whether it is a set of flats or thongs, you can find some that will sit in your purse and be the perfect backup kicks for you. Our range of classic black pumps will make it through a winter night out, but you can never be too careful. So keep your heels out of the rain this season with our helpful maintenance tips, sis! 

 

Tip 4 – Walk lighter and wear them in 

 

Did you know that a walking lighter can help prevent your platform heels from being damaged? If you are shaking your head no, then now you do! To keep your heels intact, we recommend that you try to walk lightly whilst wearing them. 

 

Minimising your number of heavy steps will ensure that your pair of pumps can last longer and get more wear out of them. Heavy steps can wear down the base of the shoes much quicker than normal. By walking lighter in your heels, your heels can maintain a long lifespan, and you can wear them more than once! We also recommend wearing your high heels.

 

You can do this by walking around the house in your pair of pumps for a long period. This process will help you get your perfect fit in your next pair of women's heels. 

Tip 5 – Accessories

To keep your women's heels looking and feeling good from morning until night, we recommend getting your hands on some accessories. These will help ensure your pairs of heels are intact and fashionable all day and night. So get your hands on some half-gel innersoles for your favourite pair of pumps. So ditch your old Jane Debster pairs and switch them with these shoes.

 

These will ensure that your feet stay comfortable and your innersoles do not wear down quicker than expected. Another set of accessories for your shoes that will be super beneficial is some heel stoppers. These sit on the base of a stiletto-like heel and help with your balance and comfort levels. 

 

If you can avoid any falls and injuries as much as possible, then your heel height will thank you for it, girl! You will find that shoe accessories are perfect for not only your pair of heels but for your other shoes as well. Maintaining the quality and style of your shoes is a beneficial task and is super quick and easy. You will never regret investing in a range of shoe accessories for your next pair of pumps
