Tips To Keep Your Flats Fresh!

Womens flats are a must-have in every ladies wardrobe. However, unfortunately, as much as we don't want to admit it, women's flats are the type of shoes that don't always remain fresh and new. These shoes are made to be worn, and they have to be one of the most worn shoes in any ladies wardrobes. So, to keep your wardrobe favourites feeling and smelling fresh, all you need to do is follow a few simple tips!


Women's flats are certainly a versatile shoe that can be worn with whatever and however you like. And since they are one of the most worn shoes in your wardrobes, you should do all you can to keep your footwear favourites feeling fresh.


Unfortunately, womens leather flat shoes are not the best smelling shoes after they've had their fair share of wear. This is usually because these shoes are quite lightweight and are normally made with some sort of lightweight fabrication, and the fact that these shoes are rarely worn with socks adds to this whiffy dilemma! And so, dirt, sweat and bacteria follow, and you're left wondering how I can keep my women's flats smelling fresh?


During the sweaty summer season, your feet are begging to be let loose! However, sometimes it can be hard to allow your feet to breathe, especially if you are wearing women's flats to work due to uniform policies. General sweating that can occur throughout the day can lead to sweaty (and sometimes smelly) feet, and with over 250,000 sweat glands on each foot, that's a lot of sweat! So, if you do need to follow protocol at work and wear closed in shoes, then do yourself a favour and keep your feet smelling sweet with these simple tips:


Store Your Shoes Properly


It's easy to throw womens sandals into your wardrobe after a long hard day of work and get lost in the hidden depths of your closet, which will only lead to a chaotic mess and a breeding ground for bacteria. Since women's flat shoes like mary jane shoes are the most commonly worn in a ladies wardrobe, we cannot express enough how important it is to store your favourite shoes properly.


Although it may seem like a great idea to store your black flat, ballet flats in their original shoe boxes, unfortunately, that sometimes isn't always the case. Although this will keep your flats in immaculate condition, it does lead to a breeding ground for germs, as bacteria flourish in dark, small places where moist shoes congregate. This will only lead to a pile of smelly black leather flat footwear.


Instead of storing shoes in their original boxes, store your women's flats in open storage areas that allow air to circulate in and around your black leather womens shoe. ( Try wearing those as wedding shoes!) Bacteria require moisture to survive; therefore, storing your shoes in open areas where they can dry out completely will eliminate the breeding grounds for bacteria. By doing this, you will be leaving your women's flats smelling more fresh than funky!


Rotate Your Women's Flats


It's easy to fall in love with a pair of shoes, they may be comfortable and easy to wear, and you'll find yourself wearing your favourite party shoes almost every day. But as much as you love your favourite pair of everyday lace up flats, it's a good idea to rotate your footwear regularly to allow them to breathe and dry out.


And all the more reason to pick up another pair of women's flats! Instead of block heels! Instead of wearing the same trusty pair to work each day, why don't you visit your closest Spendless Shoes store and pick up yourself a new pair of flats for work?


Not only will you appear fashionable, diverse and stylish amongst your colleagues sporting a new pair of work shoes on a daily basis, but you will also be doing your combo leather shoes in a world of good! Although this may seem like a pricey task, think again. At Spendless, our shoes for women are inexpensive and always affordable, so you can afford to pick up a pair of flats online for each day of the week!


Pick Up A Pair Of Ventilated Shoes


For instance, womens flat boots are usually made with leather products or synthetic fabrics that don't allow your feet to breathe. Therefore to keep your shoes feeling fresh, we recommend picking up a pair of well-ventilated womens flats as an alternative to closed shoes. Alternatively to your classic ballet styles, why not opt for a pair of women's flats like espadrille sandal that is more open and allow circulation?


At Spendless Shoes, our range of flat, low heels, dress shoes range in different designs and styles. Pick up a mesh, hole-punched, peep toe, open-toed, square toe, cut-out or woven design. The open fabrication in these styles is open and airy, which will allow your feet to breathe and remain dry throughout the day.


Wear Socks


Although it may seem uncommon and sometimes impossible to wear socks with women's flats, it certainly does make a difference! Closed in shoes that are worn without socks is a major contributor to shoe odour. When casual shoes are worn without socks, the moisture from perspiration gets trapped in the shoe's sole.


Since casual flats are commonly an open design, it can be almost impossible to conceal a pair of socks on your feet, so the best way to wear socks with these shoe styles is with a pair of invisible socks! These easy to conceal socks will provide comfort and minimise perspiration in your flats without being seen. Our invisible socks are subtle and are just the thing to add to your next purchase.


The next time you kick off your flat boots after a long day of work, take a minute and think about how and where you are storing your shoes overnight. Start taking care of your favourite flat sandals. Besides, they take such good care of your feet all day!


If that doesn't cut it, then think about applying our simple tips into your routine. Not only will you start taking better care of your womens flats, but you will also be keeping them fresher for longer! But keep in mind, if all else fails, do yourself a favour and pick up a new pair of flat leather sandals from Spendless Shoes. Our variety and affordable prices will keep you coming back for more.
