Winter's Coming: Get Your Shoe Rack Ready

Come winter, your shoe rack could use some updating. So move those sandals to the back row, and keep these tips in mind for filling the coveted front slots:



Winterize, winterize, winterize.
Salted sidewalks. Slushy puddles. Snowbanks. It’s almost like Mother Nature is out to ruin your shoes come winter, so protecting your kicks should be first on your to-do list. But fret not, from at-home cleaners to professional products, it’s easy to keep your suede and leather styles in tip-top condition.

Avoid Smooth Soles.
Believe it or not, rubber-grip soles are in – and not just on snow boots. From oxfords to heels, this trend is a winter lifesaver. Those treacherous ice patches can be tough to maneuver in smooth leather soles.

Go for Chunky Heels.
This winter, keep heels stacked and strong. Not only are they seriously on-trend, they also provide extra stability on slick sidewalks.
