Mezlan shoes have always been known as fine hand crafted footwear and they have never been cheap. Whether you're new to the world of real exotic skin dress shoes, and just bought your first pair of Mezlan Shoes
or have been wearing them for years, do you know how to properly take care of them? How to really get your money's worth. Mezlan Shoes as anyone should know are made of fine quality exotic skin leather like genuine crocodile skin,alligator skin,ostrich skin and lizard skin and need to properly taken care of. These aren't some sort cheap shoes that you just throw into the closet after you're done wearing them for the day but you don't have to treat them like they are delicate, just take care of them the way you would take care of a nice new Maybach. You don't need to baby them either. Remember that the real exotic skin on a pair of Mezlan Shoes comes from an animal that would eat us if they could. Well maybe. Although I've heard that Ostriches aren't exactly the nicest birds around either.
The first thing you should do when you get a new pair of Mezlan Shoes is to polish them with a neutral color wax shoe polish. Don't use color polish on Exotic skin shoes like Mezlan because you don't want to stain the color that they were dyed at the factory. Look closely at the skin on those Mezlan shoes and you will soon see that they were specially dyed and not just dumped into dye and soaked all the way through. There is depth and texture to the color in a manner that cheap shoes don't and can't have. You need to give your new Mezlan Shoes an extra layer of dirt and water repellent protection that the factory doesn't give. They just give a very light once over with a liquid type spray wax but what your new Mezlan Shoes crave is good quality polish. Now you should have a shoe shine kit whether it's in an old shoe box like me or one of those boxes designed with the foot step. You want to have all types of colors of shoe polishes as well as old toothbrushes to apply the polish, rags and also a couple of horse hair shoe brushes to buff out the shoes.
So first you apply the polish. Make sure you get it into those nooks and crannies. You don't want to put in on too thick though because that will just make it harder to remove after. Now after you've applied the polish to your new Mezlan Shoes, let them sit a couple of minute to let the polish settle into the leather. Some folks refer to that as "burning into the leather". Now grab your shoe shine brush and buff the daylights out it, back forth and side to side etc until you start to a see pair of Mezlan Shoes that you didn't see before. Bang, do the other shoes and you're done. Wow, that is what I call a good pair of Mezlan Shoes. That is how you polish them. Now you can wear them. After you're done wearing them for the day, if they got a little dirty, make sure you wipe them down with a slightly damp rag and immediately stuff them with cedar shoe trees to absorb all the moisture and get them back into shape for next time. If you follow these simple instructions on how to care for these wonderful hand crafted shoes, I guarantee that your beautiful new Mezlan Shoes will look newer longer and last much longer.
