Your favorite pair of shoes just broke, and now you feel as though you have no choice but to throw them out. Well, actually, they can be fixed very easily — we’re going to tell you how! And for your shoes that are still going strong, I have included 5 tips on the best shoe care in order to make your shoes last way longer.
Shoe Repair Kit
First off, we love Gorilla Glue. Mostly due to the fact that this product is waterproof and temperature resistant, but also because Gorilla Glue is easy to use and one drop of this baby means your shoes will stay together for a couple more years at least. Plus it’s clear so it will not affect your shoes’ appearance. It also comes in the color brown.
Angelus Shoe Bottom And Coat Restorer: This product contains a stain-type paint with an additional hardening agent and is great for repairing the soles of your shoes. Also it’s at a fairly cheap price of just $9.12. And this product is also well known for restoring Christian Louboutin red bottom shoes!
Eclectic Shoe Goo Glue : For only $3.99, Eclectic Shoe Goo Glue bonds, protects, and rebuilds your shoe for a permanent repair. It’s also waterproof and an excellent sealant for holes in your shoes.
Freesole Shoe And Boot Repair: A clear shoe and boot repair product that can be used to rebuild the heels of your shoes and just about everything else.
Sugru Glue 9: Sugru is great for fixing boots and shoes because it bonds to most materials including fabric and leather, and it’s flexible when dry. It is also waterproof and weatherproof.
Shoe Care Kit
Cadillac Boot And Shoe Leather Lotion: Great for maintaining care and also helps to get rid of water spots and prevent leather cracking. Also good for exotic leathers and reptile skins. This product is also great for maintaining and taking care of hand bags.
Otter Wax: Otter Wax is an amazing conditioning product for your shoes. It is a natural leather waterproofer as well and is great for anything leather (shoes, hats, etc), and it is safe for the environment. They also have a formula for canvas and fabric which you can find HERE.

Saphir Renovateur Luxury Leather Care Balm: This product can be used as a leather cleaner as well as a conditioner and helps to remove scuffs and hydrate your leather.
Wild & Wolf Sneaker Cleaning Kit: Includes cleaning liquid, beech wood brush and a soft polishing cloth. This kit is perfect for cleaning any and all pairs of sneakers. Not to mention you probably should have at least one of these laying around your house for when the time comes to finally clean those sneakers.
Poo-Pourri Shoe Odor Spray: Everyone knows what it’s like to walk into an unfamiliar person’s house and take off your shoes, only to find you didn’t wear socks and your feet are a little…well, ripe. Not to worry! This Poo-Pourri Shoe Odor Spray helps to stomp shoe odor for good. And I believe it should be an essential item in everyone’s shoe closet!
