Boot Love: Winter is Almost Here. Are Your Boots Ready?

Winter SketchWinter can be tough on your beloved boots. Between the snow, slush, and salt, unfortunate casualties await every season. Looking to prevent damage? A good first step is to weather proof leather and suede shoes. While this is not a foolproof solution, protecting your boots should be a priority prior to your first wear. Also, consider taking favorite boots to a leather worker after every tough season so they stay in tip-top condition.  Second, look for textured soles. No fashionista wants to be sliding through a storm! Plus, rubber grip soles are in, so there’s no need to face the muck in slippery, smooth soles. Finally, consider a chunky, stacked heel. It provides more stability than other alternatives and will hold up in the elements better than leather and suede-covered options.
