How long should leather shoes last
A pair of good, well taken care of leather shoes can last you indefinitely. The oldest leather shoe in the world was found in an Armenian cave in 2008, that archaeologists said was over 5,500 years old.
This pair of leather shoes had been extremely well preserved, with grass stuffed inside it, much like an ancient shoe tree. It was made of superior quality leather – the kind that would cost thousands of dollars today.
Although it may seem like too much money, leather shoes are a practical, long term investment. Few accessories go through as much adventure and wear and tear as your shoes do. Your leather shoes can be a smart accessory everyday, or at an occasion.
However, prices are not the only thing to check. A pair of cheap quality leather shoes can last you between six months to a year, depending on where you’re wearing them. Indoor, carpeted areas mean a longer lifespan – up to 5 years. But if you’re walking on the streets, in snow, etc, they’re bound to wear out faster.
As for more expensive leather shoes, those can last you a lifetime, as long as you take care of them well. If your shoes are regularly exposed to moisture, acid, salt, etc, you better watch your step!
You can extend the life of your leather shoes by caring for them appropriately. This includes cleaning, storage, and maintenance. Read more about elongating your leather shoes’ lifespan here.
