Wearing a leather sole shoes in the rain does shorten the life of the sole than normal wear. However, leather sole is actually quite tough, and providing that you are not wearing them in the rain that often, I won't worry about it too much.

 

Just make sure you put the shoes on the side after you worn them in the rain, so that the leather sole can dry completely before you're putting them back then you'll be fine.

 

 

BTW, congratulations on your wedding!

Thanks. 

I recommend both of these as well. I frequently use overshoes when in inclement weather and want to wear something other than my Color 8 Indy Boots.

No. The uppers were in excellent condition so there was no need.

do not go slathering the sole with product too much - and don't go out walking in them right away either - the reason water will help wear a leather sole out quicker is that it soaks the leather fibers, they swell, become softer and wear out faster...so essentially that will be what you are doing by putting product on them.
