We all know that buying and wearing the shoes are only half the deal. The other half is proper maintenance, and care for your footwear. Don’t disrespect yourself or your date by showing up in rough looking gear. We know a lot of you out there love chukkas and desert boots for the summer, so pick a purpose made cream, like the Fine Boot Cream in Neutral by Alden. Brush the boots clean, then give them a good cream treatment with a soft cloth. Finish off with a fine polish layer. Available at Blackbird now.
