1.Scrub off sneaker scuffs with an eraser or toothpaste.
2.Give well-worn stilettos new life by popping on some heel replacement caps — no need to consult a cobbler.
3.Stretch out pinchy shoes by filling quart-size plastic bags about a quarter of the way with water, placing one in each shoe, then putting the shoes in the freezer until the water turns to ice.
5.Vanquish tripping and constant retying by installing a pair of no-tie shoe laces on your go-to kicks.
6.Or, if you like the look of having your shoes tied in a nice, neat bow, make your own no-tie laces by replacing regular shoelaces with some elastic cord sewn to the tongue. Then, reattach just the bow of your old laces. No one will be the wiser.
7.Use bread (yes, bread) to scrub stains off of suede.
8.Forget fancy treatments and sprays and instead waterproof your shoes by rubbing them with a small candle, then using a hairdryer to set the wax coating.
