The white shoe is a great summer staple, after all, summer is all about the white, nude and lighter-colored outfits that work to keep you feeling cool on hot days and nights. Especially when traveling, the white shoe is a great option to include in a limited packing situation.
So, what’s the drawback?
Well, white shoes may seem like a great idea, until they become soiled and look more like a murky brown version of what you had initially purchased! But the white leather shoe is actually much easier to keep clean than you would expect, it’s just about maintenance.
Like with any pair of shoes, the easiest way to keep your footwear clean and in better shape for longer is to wipe them down after every wear. You only need a quick minute or two and a damp cloth or brush to get rid of any surface dirt or dust from your daily wear. This makes cleaning much easier on the long run as it help to avoid layered dirt that will be much more challenging to remove. A deeper cleaning will then only be necessary if your shoes are heavily soiled, and is also a good idea before storing them away for a longer period of time.
So what entails a quick daily post-wear clean?
Amazingly, you can give your white leather shoes a great cleaning using a couple of cheap household products. There is no need to spend on expensive leather cleaning products, as you can select cleaning your shoes using:
Other items you can use are:
For either of the deeper cleaning methods (toothpaste or vinegar and baking soda), you can begin with the same steps as the daily post-wear clean. Then, depending on the method selected, follow the corresponding steps (I also use the same methods in the case I want to focus on a scuff or specific area that has been stained, or on the rubber sole of sneakers or running shoes).
For the toothpaste method:
For the vinegar and baking soda method:
In the case your shoes have laces, don’t keep those out of the cleaning process! You don’t want to wear your clean white shoes with dirty laces. You can also easily clean your laces in two ways,
So there you have it, a few inexpensive and readily available household items is all you need to keep your white shoes looking as fresh as you want to feel!

You don’t need to have a plethora of clothes in your closet to feel like you have enough to create a wide range of outfits. A good selection of staple pieces can give you enough styling versatility and remain relevant over time. Shoes are a great accessory that you can use alongside a few classic clothing options to take you through the seasons in a stylish breeze. Although I would usually advocate to wear what you want to and feel good in at all times, there are a few Do’s and Don’ts that are quite helpful to consider while picking out shoes for your outfits. These can help make decisions faster and, to some extent, less painful too!
The comfortable and more casual flat may have become the staple in most modern closets, for both casual and formal wear I must add, but I do believe that a girl will always need a good pair of high heels. In my overview of Top Dress Shoes for Women, I recommend different types of both flat and heel options for formal events - and this is always great to have. But I think it’s about time to give a few pointers for those who would like to opt for a great pair of high heel shoes, but might not feel confident or comfortable enough to walk in them.
