BUY LESS

GLITTER SHOES? IN JANUARY?

It makes perfect sense to us

Lockdown seems to split the best of us into two categories when it comes to our shopping habits: half buy less, half buy more. If you’re in the market for a new pair of glitter shoes, you probably fall into the latter.

We know, you definitely don’t need a pair of glitter shoes in times like these. Not only is it the infamously miserable month of January, it’s also lockdown – the third lockdown in less than a year, to be precise. But maybe both of these factors are exactly why – of all shoes you could buy – glitter shoes are the ones that currently tempt you the most. After all, you could do with some joy.

While you won’t be able to wear them immediately, a pair of glitter shoes can serve as an art object within your home until you can. It certainly won’t be a gallery wall, but this is a period of doing what you can with what you have. And who wouldn’t want to have a pair of glitter shoes in their line of vision as they trudge through yet another month of WFH? Well, some people might find that abhorrent. But at least they could be a sign of things to come – fun things, that is.

On that note, you might want to educate yourself on their upkeep:

HOW TO CLEAN – AND CARE FOR – GLITTER SHOES

  1. Before you do anything else, introduce your glitter shoes to hairspray as soon as you purchase them. Applying it to them creates a protective layer that reduces flaking.
  2. Now for the cleaning! Firstly, wipe them with a soft cloth to dislodge any dirt. We doubt you would have been hiking in them, but wearing glitter shoes outside in any capacity is a surefire way to soil them in at least some way.
  3. Then, prepare a mixture of cold water and mild laundry detergent.
  4. Fetch a clean toothbrush (ideally not your personal one).
  5. Scrub any areas of concern – gently.
  6. Scrub again with just water to remove any residue.
  7. Allow to dry.
  8. Henceforth, store the precious things in plastic to minimise that aforementioned flaking.
