We’ve all walked out the front door in our favorite pair of sneakers or leather shoes and looked up to see dark clouds gathering overhead. Do you sacrifice a great outfit to save your shoes? Or, do you pray that it won’t rain while you’re outside? It’s a conundrum that fashionistas have faced for a long time – and it’s finally solved.
Below are some great products for protecting your favorite kicks when it rains, including covers and sprays for sneakers, suede boots, dress shoes and all other non-waterproof footwear.
1. HaloVa Waterproof Shoes Cover
These $9 waterproof shoe covers are great to keep in your everyday bag, just in case of a shower. They feature zippers to fit any shoe inside, and a drawstring closure at the ankle to keep water out.
2. Bickmore Gard-More Water & Stain Repellent
Bickmore’s Gard-More is great for leather, nubuck, or fabric shoes, but it also works on jackets and hats too. It comes highly-rated with almost 100 reviews and 4 stars, with users attesting to its effectiveness.
