Just because the tops of your shoes (the part you can see when you're wearing them) look good doesn't mean you're off the hook for keeping the heels, bottoms and sides in shape. Nothing looks worse than a dinged stiletto heal, one with a missing rubber tip or a sad shoe that still has a Day-Glow sale sticker attached to the bottom. Treat your shoes like the wardrobe essentials they are. Polish them regularly and don't forget the fashion first aid when they get scratched or weather-beaten.
