Would you or have you ever tried wearing socks on sandals before? Do you think it’s a nice idea?

We came across a piece of information on the internet that has to do with how men polish their shoes wrongly, we felt it was important to share this piece of information as it mostly concerns men.
It is known that women love shoes, and in fact some are obsessed about it. But where did the idea that men care less about their shoes come from? Though women’s shoes come in various designs, shapes, styles and colours, for men black seems to be the most important colour.
One thing most guys don’t joke with is polishing their shoes so as to ensure that they remain well polished. There is something men need to learn about how to use wax polish on shoes to make the shoe last.
Good socks on great shoes are always amazing!
Wax polish is good for high quality leather, but it is equally easy to see men use wax polish on every leather, but the question is how often should you polish your shoe?
When a leather shoe is polished every now and then, in a very short time that could badly affect the shoe’s leather. If you polish your leather shoe twice a week for six months, imagine the several layers that will be piled up on the leather.
Most times when guys think they are actually polishing, the previous polished layer is what is being polished and not the leather. It is amazing how we daily add wax to our leather shoes without letting them breathe, and then we complain that the shoe’s leather is breaking. Most times, the shoe leather – including genuine leather break simply because we don’t care or polish the shoe well.
So before you complain that the guy at the shoe store lied to you, ask yourself if you really know how to polish your own shoe. Like someone recently pointed out, imagine you load your skin with body cream day after day without taking a bath. You just imagine that! When you cream your skin daily without having a bath, your skin won’t have the opportunity to breath and that is not very good for the skin. Same goes for the leather.
To keep your leather shoes as healthy as possible, this is what you should do. Don’t polish your shoe every now and then; rather clean it often. After pulling off your shoe, wipe with a dry piece of cotton fabric and keep in a airy place. It is advisable to always keep a duster in your drawer at work and in your car, so dust particles will not have the opportunity to settle and soak off all the shine on your polished shoe.
When you finally think it is necessary to polish, soak a clean fabric in mild soapy water and then wipe off the previous coating. You want to call that bathing your shoe right? Actually it is. After this is done, you can now go ahead to add polish wax on the leather, washing your shoe as described before polishing helps to polish the leather and not polish the polish like many often do.
To properly confirm this technique, you would remember that some of the expert “aboki” shoe shiners usually use slight soapy water on the shoe before polishing.
In conclusion, to avoid polishing the polish on your shoe, adhere to the new technique.

Do the toenails affect your socks in any way? As simple as the answer to this question is, it is funny how some guys want to keep their toenails yet avoid holes in socks. Aesthetically speaking, toenails are available for painting and general beautification of the feet, most especially for ladies.
Save for these stated reasons, toenails can cause so much discomfort when they hit the tip of your shoe each time you wear them. The other day, a customer was asking a question on what can be done to stop his nails from piercing through his socks. But the truth is that eating one’s cake and having it has remained an unresolved puzzle. But on a more serious note, apart from beautification which majorly concerns ladies, why would a guy keep toenails?
Honestly there is no tangible thing the toenail is doing, except to poke holes in your socks and make them wear out fast. So get rid of them! Claw-like toenails don’t even protect you from stubbing your toe. So they are practically of no use.
Long toenails might increase the pains of an ingrown toenail. An ingrown nail is when the sides of a toenail – usually the big toe – curve into and dig into the flesh instead of growing straight out.
Some are born with chronically ingrown toenails, while others are self inflicted. Ingrown toenail is sometimes also caused by either the shoe we wear or the way nails are being cut. Left untreated, ingrown toenails cause discomfort that can quickly turn into severe pains and infections. Toenail fungus is another infection of the nail, and they can be embarrassing in the sense that they could stop you from rocking your nice socks and shoes.
So it’s a lot better to keep clean nails and proper hygiene always.
