Brown leather shoes are a fashion basic for men, women and children. Because leather is a sturdy material, it can last a long time. But as reported at The Dollar, "Many people spend hours upon hours shopping for a good price on quality leather shoes that are comfortable, supportive, and look nice, but very few people take the time to care for their leather shoes properly."
