The Aldo Sneakers Sizing Guide
Unsure which size to get? Take a look at the Aldo sizing guide below to ensure your men’s Aldo sneakers are the perfect fit. If your feet measure in between sizes, it is usually best to go up a size. It is also worth noting, some styles are not available in half sizes.
For example, if you typically wear a men’s US size 7.5 or a European size 40, you should buy your Aldo sneakers in the brand’s UK size 6.5.
How To Care For Your Aldo Sneakers
To look after your Aldo men’s sneakers to help ensure they last as long as possible, you can follow these simple steps.
• Invest in some excellent full leather, half leather or gel insoles. These provide extra comfort and support for your feet when they take a pounding on the pavement or the dance floor.
• Protect your sneakers from rain, snow, and salt as soon as you’ve bought them with water-resistant lotion. Be sure to use a product that's suitable for leather and/or synthetic materials. Using such a product helps to protect the shoe by preventing it from cracking.
• For sneakers made out of synthetic materials, wipe them with a damp cloth and clean the soles regularly to get rid of street dirt. Needless to say, this helps to keep them in good condition. You can also clean your sneakers using a suitable cream or spray designed for the material they're made out of. A good lotion will moisturize the leather and help prevent it from cracking. Apply it evenly to the surface of the shoe with a soft clean cloth and allow it to dry before buffing the shoe to shine.
