You shouldn't wear the same pair of shoes every day — here's why

They'll last so much longer.

Give your shoes a rest.

Don't just slip on the same trusty pair of dress shoes day after day.

Why? Because if you let them rest they'll stay alive so much longer.

Here, take it from an expert:

"The best way to extend the life of your shoes is to rotate your shoes and use quality shoe trees after each wear," Allen Edmonds' Jim Kass told Business Insider.

As you wear your shoes, the leather soaks up the perspiration your feet give off. That sounds pretty gross, but it's totally normal — as long as you give the shoe ample time to dry.

"If you wear the same pair everyday, your shoes don't have ample time to dry and they won't maintain their shape,"

If you don't give your shoes a day to air out, the sweat-soaked leather will warp, and your shoes will start to lose their shape — not to mention get musty and start to stink. The damper leather is also more prone to damage like scratches.

Plus, variety is the spice of life. Who wants to wear the same pair of shoes every single day?
