Defying the Clock: 5 Tips to Prolong the Lifespan of your Shoe Covers

Defying the Clock: 5 Tips to Prolong the Lifespan of your Shoe Covers

Let’s face it, while we are on the move, our shoe covers aren’t really having the time of their lives. Like the unsung heroes of the footwear world that they are, they battle every challenge that nature throws at them- the unforgiving downpour, the scorching sun and the mucky mud. From getting snagged on sharp objects, to getting drenched in the rain and losing their color in the sun, shoe covers undergo unimaginable wear and tear, which negatively impacts their lifespan.

Before your favorite pair of shoe covers flatlines, here are 5 brilliant ways in which you can improve their longevity and make sure that they stick around in your wardrobe for just a little longer!

  1. Pick the right material

Shoe covers for men come in a variety of different materials, and it’s easy to lose yourself in the labyrinth while finding ‘The One.’ At the end of the day, the final decision depends primarily on the environment that they have to endure and the level of protection that you need to conquer any obstacles that come in your way. If you work in a challenging environment, investing in a more durable material will totally be worth it!

  1. Size Matters

Believe it or not, the size of your shoe cover has a lot to do with its expiration date! If your shoe covers are too small, they'll stretch and strain and if they're too big, they'll flap around and get caught on things, which can also lead to damage. It’s crucial to ensure that your shoe covers are your perfect size and have additional features like adjustable straps or sealed seams for a truly snug fit.

  1. Clean Properly

It may sound obvious, but keeping your trusty shoe covers clean and dry are all the TLC they need to ensure their longevity. After each use make sure that you rinse them with water and hang them to air dry. On days that you have been particularly adventurous, go an extra mile and use a mild detergent for cleaning.

  1. Store Wisely

Knowing how to store your precious overshoes, is just as crucial as making sure that they are clean and dry. Store them in a cool, dry place where they are not directly exposed to sunlight. It is always a great idea to place them in a separate bag or container where they are less prone to wear and tear from contact with other shoes or wardrobe items.

  1. Handle with Care

Just like any other wardrobe accessory, your shoe covers require careful handling. When putting them on, avoid stepping on the material or pulling too hard, as this can cause rips and tears. Be gentle when removing them and avoid stripping them off forcefully. A little love and care can go a long way!
