Ready for travel? How about your footwear?
March 28, 2018
You don’t travel in just one season or one type of weather or for one purpose. Your personal style could be dancing in the moonlight on a Rhine cruise or trekking the African bush to the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro. Business could call you to the damp streets of soggy old London or the hot, gritty sidewalks of lower Manhattan. But when you travel, you’ll likely use your feet a lot more than you do at home. Your shoes, and the feet in them, can take a real beating.
Most of us don’t worry a lot about keeping our feet happy - until they’re not! But a little foot-focused thinking before you travel can save a lot of pain- figuratively and literally. Will it be hot? Or wet? Sandy grit? or mud? Rough terrain? Slippery? Just how fancy or how casual? Pack the right footwear
for the conditions and the activities your expecting and then pack along a handy small shoe care travel kit
or just treat it home before traveling with some shoe care
conditioners and waterproofing
. If conditions won’t be much different than home, pick your shoes for comfort and travel with one of the conveniently sized Shoe Care Travel Kits offered by Valentino Garemi. If your trip is heading for greater challenges, you can design a personal kit for your specific needs from the wide, online selection of foot and leather care products to ensure you enjoy your travel experience from start to finish.
Keep in mind, at the core of your footwear survival kit, you will need a high quality shoe cream to nourish and restore the abused leather and a polish to maintain and restore the beauty. The French company Saphir. offers a range of products: from Delicate Leather Cream, for the most supple and fragile of exotic leathers
, through Polish Paste and Shoe Cream, with shea butter and beeswax conditioning, to the ultimate, Dubbin Vegetal Everest
, designed to soften and protect in extreme conditions of ice and slush and mud.
