I live in Chicago and am currently re-thinking my shoe strategy for the winter. My commute causes me to walk about a mile to and from work most days. In the winter, I bring all of my nice shoes to work and alternate wearing 2 pairs of semi-respectable boots to and from the office. I change into my "nicer" shoes when I get to work. There must be a better alternative than this... anyone with more experience care to share any thoughts on how to deal with winter/salt and nice shoes? Care to share your personal method of dealing with this?
