Fall Shoes For Women

    Autumn marks the transition from summer into winter. For the U.S. and Canada this takes place in September when the arrival of night becomes noticeably earlier and we are associated with the transition from warm to cold weather. This is the time where skies turn grey, and many people turn inward, both physically and mentally. Weather is not the only aspect of autumn that tends to go through a transition; we as people do the same. This is also the time of year that summer clothes and footwear, such as spaghetti strap t-shirts, bathing suits and flip-flops, get boxed back up in the closet for wintertime storage, and another type of box is unraveled!

Got cold feet? You lose most of your body’s heat through your extremities (hands, feet, head etc.) What would be a good solution? No need for hand or feet warmers. As long as you have on the right pair of kicks, these items are irrelevant.  Fall is a time for fun, different, yet calming styles that you don’t get throughout the rest of the year. “A woman’s imagination is very rapid. It jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment” – Jane Austen. Needless to say her decision on which pair of shoes she will be wearing for the occasion, could dynamically change before she gets out the door.

Wedges, boots of all sorts, flats, heels and of course tennis shoes are just some of the many choices to choose from in the fall. As a woman we need to have a lot of different choices, because most likely your mind will change before you arrive at your destination. Whatever your preference, any of these choices would make a wonderful addition to the shoe collection in your closet. When I think of a “fall shoe” the first thing that comes into my mind is calm and subtle. There may be nights you’re going out and have to spice things up a little bit, that’s when it’s time to bring out the classy and spectacular’s, such as wedges, stilettos or pumps. The choice of your shoe of course is matched with your attire and occasion. Let your shoe define who you are as a person.

Shoes can be a very fun item to shop for and Autumn is one of the best times to do so.  Make the experience an enjoyable one for yourself and your loved ones and come on in to Houser Shoes and let us guide you on the journey to finding the right shoe for your sole!

How To Take Care Of Suede

By:  Tiffini Taylor

Autumn is a lovely time of the year to wear your most comfortable pair of suede shoes, but how do you take care of them?   Suede shoes are a classic for Fall fashion ever since Elvis Presley sung “Blue Suede Shoes”.  Times and styles have changed quite a bit since then, but suede shoes are still an easy, beautifully elegant fashion for Fall. Suede is a durable and lovely material that needs special attention when owning a pair of suede shoes. HouserShoes.com has a wonderful selection of suede shoes, in both men’s and women’s styles, to choose from.

Suede shoes are usually made with a special coating to protect them from the environmental elements. There are many kinds of spray coatings you can get to help protect them, too. This is the first step in protecting suede and this should be applied first thing after purchase. When wearing suede try to avoid wearing in rain and snow, suede last longer when not getting wet all the time. This is an important piece of knowledge to know but with the best quality protective coatings being used on suede shoes, it has become a very rarely used idea.  Mother Nature doesn’t care if you are wearing suede shoes, so weather will never cooperate with suede shoes. The best idea is to wear your suede and look great. Then when you get home, you can prepare your suede for the next outing. Some suede shoes come with care instructions that help to know the best way to take care of your suede. Sometimes there is even a shoe label or it will come in the shoe box. This is important to locate and read.

To clean suede, one must make sure that the suede is dry. There is a cleaning brush that is specially made for suede that you can get to use on the suede. This brush will come in a special suede cleaning kit, and there will also be very helpful instructions in the kit too.  Follow the instructions of you have a suede shoe cleaning kit; be sure to check for any special instructions on the shoe label or in the shoe box. Suede is harder to clean because it is extremely sensitive to water this is also why it is important to clean the shoe once it is dry. The suede shoe cleaning kit will tell you to use gentle brush strokes and to go in the same direction. This is to take off any layer of dirt that builds up on the suede.

A common happening to suede shoes is scuff marks. Most scuff marks can be easily removed with a bit of fast brushing back and forth, this also calls for patience.   A scuff mark that seems to not want to come off easily, you may want to try an eraser to get the scuff mark off. Water stains can be cleaned by soaking the excess water off the shoe and letting it dry, only after this shall you use your suede brush for the stain. Always let your suede shoe dry before cleaning them. When you step in chewing gum, it is never a good day, you can place your shoes in the freezer for a while before you clean them and the gum will harden and you can clean them much easier. Ink pens can be another hazard for suede, but the best way to conquer is to clean the ink stain before it sets.  Blot the stain, you can use sandpaper after blotting to remove the stain easily. Use the sandpaper lightly though, this is not wood it is suede.  When stains give you too much trouble then you can a small amount of vinegar on a towel to blot it onto the stain, and then let it dry and continue to clean the stain off. Steel wool is another good stain remover of suede; just make sure it is a dry stain before using lightly. Suede can be cleaned with an emery board and steam. The steam can heat and help in lifting the stain off the suede. Remember to use the emery board lightly.  Now, go fourth and wear your beautiful suede this Autumn!

Mistreated Feet

According to the Center for Disease control, as of 2010 an estimated 51.9 million in the U.S. are affected by arthritis. So what does this have to do with shoes? Because, good joint health starts from the ground up. Even if you don’t have arthritis, typical onset is between the ages of 35 and 55 so there are some preventative measures you can take to fend off arthritis and the unpleasant effects it can cause. In a great number of cases, especially of rheumatoid arthritis, the ankles, knees and hips are highly sensitive areas to impact and jarring. In these instances it’s important to wear a shoe with great shock absorption qualities. In an athletic shoe, a good EVA mid sole to absorb shock and maybe even an added liner are great ideas. Be careful not to put too much padding in the shoe because this can strain the leg muscles with “mushy walking.” And to keep the knees and hips in alignment, a shoe like certain Brooks or Asics with medial posting is great because it keeps the gait pattern from rolling too far in or out. For casual or dress shoes, some good brands include Clarks Unstructured and Alegria due to their blend of polyurethane and TPU. These materials, in high quality form, absorb shock and maintain a good walking structure.

So next time you’re buying shoes, don’t mistreat your feet with cheap, poorly made shoes. Instead put just an extra minute looking at the materials and construction to make sure it’s the right shoe for you!
