The weather in the Philippines has been very unpredictable. There were several instances wherein it was sunny when I got out of our house and then after 10 minutes, there came the rain. The most affected part of our outfit during heavy rains is obviously our pair of shoes. The question now is, are there life-hacks that can help us protect our kicks during bad weather?
Based on experience and on the feedbacks that I got from a number of sneakerheads, I managed to formulate 4 unique ways that can protect our sneakers.
1. The most common way is that you should change your footwear if it rains. You can bring an extra slippers with you to substitute your expensive shoes. That may come in handy after work and especially if it's raining outside. You can place you shoes inside a ziplock with silica gels before you place it in your bag on your way home. You can text 09151281195 if you want to buy shoe ziplocks and silica gels.
2. You may use beeswax. Beeswax is a natural wax produced inside the bee hive of honeybees. Just scrub the wax on your shoes til it gets shiny and then use the blower to work it into the shoes. It will make your shoes waterproof. No worries because bees wax is all natural. You can use soft cloth to peel it off afterwards.
3. I know this sounds funny, but, I know a lot of people who tried using Cond*ms to protect and envelope their shoes while walking in the rain. They told me that it's effective.
4. And finally, during worst case scenarios, remove your shoes and walk barefoot.
