Shoe care during rains

Yes, shoes obviously get soaked and it is quite difficult to care for your footwear.

First things first, put all your leather away — bags or shoes, wrap them well and put them away.

It’s best to stick to older pairs and keep the new ones or favourite footwear at home when it rains.

Make sure you dry your shoes before putting them away; never dry them in direct sunlight. One way to dry them, would be to put old newspaper balls inside them and leave them overnight. Then dry them under a fan or keep them on a window sill that get plenty of air.

Wearing suitable footwear is important. Instead of flip-flops, try ones with straps so that they don’t flap and leave streaks of dirt along your back.
