If they will most definitely be ruined, then I won't bother.
Surly, I never said you specifically, were ignorant or willfull. My exact words were 'It is deeply saddening to see how many men
through sheer ignorance or willfullness or both, are willing to destroy nice things rather than learn how to treat them properly.' This is a statement of fact, pure and simple. Believe it. You, personally are making an effort to learn and that is good, so please try not to be so self-concious. The best and only way to protect leather footwear from salt, is never to expose your leather to salt in the first place. There is no better way. Your words I have quoted in red
