The perfect pair of heels makes you look taller, leaner, and definitely more stylish, so how do you return the favor for your footwear?

1. AIR THEM OUT.
If they’re really soaked from rain, try using a UVC light-powered insert, like SteriShoe, to disinfect and ward off potential viruses.

2. KEEP IT CLEAN
Leather shoes need a sweeping from a soft cloth, while suede pairs benefit from a stiff brush.

3. FIGHT ODOR.
Put cedar chip inserts inside closed-toe shoes to absorb odor-causing dampness. Try LA Closet Design, they have great ones.
