Shoes are an investment. Here a few ideas on how to keep your boots in great condition.
1. Roll up a magazine and insert it into your boots. This will protect that crease at the fold from happening. Protect them and they will last much longer.
2. If you have the space you may want to hang your boots up with a pant hanger. Be sure to add a thick piece of material or cardboard to protect them from the clamp.
