Easing wear on shoes in the winter

Posted on

Ah, winter.  I’d forgotten that it snows in some parts of the world (apparently also in the UK regularly now too).  Here in Prague, we’re now buried under snow, along with the accompanying grit and salt.  Husband and I debated what to do about sparing his expensive work shoes, and then hit on an easy solution…

Husband wears his boots on his walk to work, and leaves his work shoes and a polish brush at work to change into.  This way, only the heavy winter boots are exposed to all of the grit and salt, and his nice leather work shoes should last longer because of it.

So far it has worked out well, and I’ll keep you updated if we come up with any other spectacular ideas.
