WE know what it’s like  when you find a pair of shoes you LOVE – you just want to show them off as much as possible.

But try to resist the urge of wearing the same ones every day.

 Apparently you should avoid wearing the same pair of shoes every day

According to expert Jim Kass, vice president for American shoe giant Allen Edmonds, giving them a rest will result in them lasting much longer.

While that sounds fairly obvious, the reason that wearing them every day will resign them to the bin so much quicker is actually quite surprising – and pretty gross.

Throughout the day, leather shoes will soak up the sweat generated from your feet.

Grim as it sounds, that’s actually pretty normal – but the problems start when you don’t allow the shoes enough time to air and dry out.

Kass told Business Insider: “If you wear the same pair every day, your shoes don’t have ample time to dry and they won’t maintain their shape.”

Putting them on while they’re still slightly damp with perspiration will cause the leather to warp, and your shoes will start to lose their shape.

 If you don't allow your shoes enough time to 'dry out', they'll go out of shape

Naturally they also become more musty and smelly.

The damper leather is also more prone to damage like scratches and scuffs.

Kass said: “The best way to extend the life of your shoes is to rotate your shoes and use quality shoe trees after each wear.”

So there you go – looks like you’ll just have to go shopping for another gorgeous pair so you can alternate. How awful…

Last month we revealed these eight pairs of high street shoes are a fraction of the price of the designer versions – can YOU tell the difference?
