Leather dress shoes are a staple of the modern man’s wardrobe. They complete a suit, can be worn with casual business attire and can be a choice for dress events of all types. Proper care is required to ensure that your leather dress shoes remain a valuable part of your wardrobe for years to come. Here’s how you can care for your leather dress shoes.
