New here, and just picked up my first pair of Trickers, the Stows in Marron Antique. Pretty pumped about the shoes in general, but have a question about the double leather soles... What's the verdict on wearing them out in the rain? I generally try to avoid wearing my other leather soled shoes in wet weather, but these look so beefy that I doubt a little wet weather will slow them down! Would a coat of sno-seal or similar on the soles be sufficient enough to protect them in inclement weather, or should I keep the wear to the dry days?
Cheers, and I apologize if the topic's been covered already, I tried to search and there seem to be a lot of conflicting opinions.
I wouldn't be too concerned about putting a coat of sno-seal or anything on the soles of the shoes. I would think once you take a few steps on any concrete or asphalt, you're going to scrap all of that off pretty quickly anyway. I wear my double leather soled shoes pretty frequently in wet weather. As long as I am not standing in puddles up over the welts I've never had a problem. In my experience, the only thing to worry about when wearing those types of soles in wet weather is when you come inside and walk on any marble or tile floors... if the floors are wet, it can be pretty slick with those shoes (but once you remember to think about it, it's never really a problem).
