Winter Care Tips: Protect Your Shoes

Winter can be tough on your leather shoes. I find myself replacing boots annually and tossing some one my favorite shoes after the season changes. I recently went on a hunt for an alternative to this problem and I saw a lot of articles online about this product called Galoshes. Galoshes are a type of rubber boot that is slipped over shoes to keep them from getting muddy or wet. One brand that people seemed to be obsessed with is SWIMS. SWIMS is a apparel company that developed the modern Galosh. The stylish solution to bad weather embodied the essence of practicality: Wear your favorite shoes, slip on SWIMS when the weather is rough, slip’em off when you arrive at your destination. I was lucky enough to try a pair for myself!

SWIMS Galoshes:

  • Intelligent fit and great stretch
  • Low friction when slipping on and off
  • Durable and flexible
  • TPU outer shell
  • Unique inner lining and insulation
  • Better grip on slippery surfaces
  • Shock-absorbing heel
  • Tear-resistant
  • Waterproof

On the real, it not the cutest accessory but it gets the job done! You can wear your favorite leather shoes regardless of the weather and expect them to be in pristine condition once you slip off your Galosh. It protects your shoes against any weather to come and they are easy to carry. The New York City weather is very unpredictable, so I definitely suggest throwing a pair in your bag!
