So, does anyone have suggestions for nice rubber soled shoes for that situation?
Funny thing is, I do the same thing.
In years past, I wore rubber overshoes (black ones) on rainy days and in the winter. But, since a lot of my shoes were brown, the black rubber discoloured the brown leather of my shoes over time.
Nowadays, I just wear a cheaper pair of rubber soled shoes on rainy days and in the winter, I wear rubber soled suede shoes. And sometimes I'll wear the black rubber overshoes--but that's becoming more and more infrequent.
Of course, I can always put on a pair of very casual, thick rubber soled shoes to wear on the commute to work and carry my good leather soled shoes in my bag (a shoulder messenger bag)and then change into those at work.
