I have large and narrow feet that require me to get custom shoes. I don't come from a lot of money, so I would like to buy one good pair of shoes and just wear them as long as they look good. Theoretically, how long would a pair of dress shoes last if worn everyday (not including heavy snow/rain days, unless it's just a little rain or rained earlier in the day, cause I'll wear my old boots for those days)?

 

I would brush them everyday and use shoe trees.

This is all to theoretical. It would depend on the shoe, the person, and the type of enviormnment it was subjected to.

 

 

But typically speaking it is a lot better to rotate shoes as they will do better if given a chance to rest between wears.

Theoretically situation:

1. Allen Edmonds quality shoe.

2. Worn 8 hours a day (6 hours walking and 2 hours stationary).

3. Worn during the spring/summer.

4. If rainy, then spray on waterproof solution, use an umbrella outdoors, and when outdoors quickly find cover with a building or vehicle.

5. Use a shoe tree when not being worn.

6. Brushed after each wearing.

Besides the quality, it depends on how hard you are on them and what types of maintenance practices you use.
