In this article we will give you some useful advice on how to organize your shoe rack, as it is well known that women who love shoes always have the problem of keeping the shoe rack in order in order to keep in mind which shoes they own.
First of all, the most opportune moment to reorganize the shoe rack is the change of season, so as to remove the shoes of the past season and fill the shoe rack with the footwear of the current season.
Then empty your shoe rack completely and, while storing the footwear of the past season, leave the shoe cabinet doors open for about half an hour to circulate the air.
Then thoroughly clean the shoe cabinet: if it is made of wood just pass a damp cloth, while if the shoe rack is made of plastic you should disinfect the interior to eliminate bacteria with water and ammonia or vinegar diluted in water.
After the shoe rack is completely dry, starting to place the shoes, we recommend putting the suede shoes on the top shelves of the shoe rack.
There are various methods for placing your shoes in order, we advise you to keep the ones you use most often in a comfortable and more easily accessible position, while the shoes you occasionally use you can organize them according to their shape and color.
If instead you have a large shoe rack you can put the shoes inside the boxes of the purchase or buy new ones and write the name of the shoe that you are going to put inside it.
Warning: it is always important to store the shoes in the shoe rack clean and brushed to keep them always in good condition.
The last piece of advice we give you is to place a small sachet of bicarbonate inside the shoe rack to absorb moisture and eliminate bad smells.
In this article we will give you some advice to match the right shoe on any occasion avoiding mistakes.
Unfortunately, or fortunately, there are no precise standards, because fashion has now become flexible and eccentric, but we can still give you some general rules.
The ballerina like the article A312 or the article C399 model Saki by Mara Bini adds a touch of bon ton to any look, whether combined with a dress that simply to a jeans and a shirt.
In general they are shoes that can be worn on any occasion like every day to go to the office, to a wedding or a party.
The sneakers like the article E901 or the article E903 model Sophia by Mara Bini are a type of shoe that has now become a must have in your shoe rack.
It goes perfectly with (almost) all the looks and you can wear it on all occasions except those that require formal and elegant clothing, such as a wedding or an important dinner.
They are also perfect for going to the office with a more elegant clothing such as trousers and jacket because they play down the look giving it a sporty and streetstyle touch.
The moccasin, such as the article E301 model Soft or the article E314 model Gioia by Mara Bini, is a shoe like the ballerina, versatile that can be worn on any occasion, also making a basic look more sophisticated and elegant; for example you can wear it for the office, in the evening or for some important occasion.
The mules or sabot are all the rage in the Spring – Summer 2018 season and it is a shoe suitable for every day, either with a dress or with jeans and t-shirt.
Then, depending on the different shape or fantasy can be more or less elegant: for example, the article Goa model E318 by Mara Bini is a very elegant shoe thanks to the upper with quilted effect and the accessory in the front that gives a touch of style.
While the article C321 Saki model by Mara Bini is more ridiculous while still maintaining the class that distinguishes all the shoes of Mara Bini.
So we suggest wearing this shoe on less formal occasions, avoiding them for more important occasions.
The daily care of shoes must be a routine gesture of your days, because it would be a shame to buy quality shoes like those of Mara Bini and not store them properly.
In this article we will give you some small tips to put in your habits to keep your shoes in perfect condition.
When buying the shoe, do not throw away the box in which your shoes are stored as it can be useful for storing your shoes during the change of season.
The first day you wear the shoes you have just bought, do not wear them all day, but wear them only a few hours so that the foot gets used to the shape and bottom of the new shoe.
In addition, it is preferable not to wear the same shoe more than two consecutive days, in fact you should let it rest so as to make it also ventilate from any perspiration.
As soon as you take off your shoes, clean them!
Each shoe of different material also has its own method of cleaning, in fact, depending on the material, you will have to brush them, pass the cream to moisturize the skin, pass a damp cloth or a sponge.
The shoes should never be stored dirty in the shoe rack and cleaned every day to avoid shortening their life due to dirt and dust that will ruin the skin over time.
If you do not have to wear the same pair of shoes the next day, we advise you to put talcum powder or a special deodorant in the inner sole to avoid unpleasant odors and to fill the shoe with paper so that it does not lose its shape.
Be careful not to overlap the shoes in the shoe rack as it could alter the shape.
Another small tip is to place in the shoe rack of the breathable bags filled with bicarbonate to absorb moisture and eliminate unpleasant odors.
These are small precautions to remember every day to keep the footwear in good condition so you can use it over time.
Have you ever thought about which shoes are essential in your shoe rack?
In this article we will give you an idea of how many and which footwear should never be missing in your shoe rack for the Spring – Summer season.
Let’s start with the first shoe that should never be missing in your shoe rack, that is the moccasin.
The moccasin is a shoe easily adaptable to any type of look, you can wear it both during the day with casual clothing, or in the evening with a dress or a more elegant and formal look.
Especially if it is a plain-colored moccasin it will be very easy to wear with different outfits, such as the articles of Mara Bini article E314 Gioia model or the article E317 Gioia model too.
For those who are not very inclined to a shoe like the moccasin, we recommend having at least one pair of ballerinas in their shoe rack.
Ballerinas, just like moccasins, are perfect shoes to be worn with multiple looks and can be worn with the same ease both day and night.
There are various types of ballerinas, from the simplest and basic ones such as the article E299 model Saki to a more particular dancer such as the article E304 model Saki or the article E310 model Saki with open heel surrounded only by the buckle.
Another item to have in your shoe rack is the sabot or mules.
It is a comfortable and practical shoe that always maintains style.
It too is an item to wear with ease with different types of look and unlike the moccasin, having the heel uncovered, it is very fresh.
The last essential item in your shoe rack is a pair of sneakers or slip on.
Even for the most elegant people there is the occasion that requires more informal and sporty clothing, and it is good to always have a pair of comfortable shoes in your shoe rack.
Attention that a comfortable shoe does not have to be ugly and too sporty, there are in fact sports models that perfectly combine comfort with elegance, such as the articles of Mara Bini E902 and article E903 model Sophia.
Taking care of your shoes and storing them in the most appropriate way ensures that the shoes are kept at their best and thus allow them to last much longer.
In this article we will give you some useful advice on how to properly store your shoes at each change of season, keeping them in good condition.
First of all it is always a good idea to keep your shoes clean, possibly weekly, obviously being careful to clean them properly according to the material they are made of. If you are undecided about the cleaning method and the products to be used, it is always better to ask the seller the best method to avoid damaging the shoes.
Always check that soles and heels are in good condition, if they are worn wear immediately the footwear from the shoemaker to have them replaced.
To store the shoes while keeping them in good condition, you need a suitable place, a place where sunlight, water or dust do not arrive to prevent the shoes from fading, ruining and avoiding the formation of mold.
The ideal would be to put them in their box that they gave you when you bought or you can opt for a simple plastic container.
The first thing to do before putting away the shoes is to prepare them cleanly to perfection because if we place them dirty, with stains or dust the material with which they are made could be damaged. In this regard, an important thing is to dry them completely, thus avoiding the formation of mold or the alteration of the shape of the shoe.
Another step is to fill the shoes with acid-free paper to keep them fit, careful not to use newsprint as it may stain the inside of the shoe. The ideal would be to insert into the shoe the plastic or even better forms of cedar wood, which, in addition to maintaining the shape of the shoe, helps keep the smell fresh and keeps away insects and moths.
The silica gel sachets can also be placed inside the box to keep the footwear fresh.
After these procedures your shoes are ready to be stored but we also remind you that, if you intend to put them aside for a long time, it is a good rule, every two weeks or so, to take them out of the box and let to take air.
