Hello, I haven't spent much time in a snowy climate, and was wondering, how do you protect your leather shoes from snow? More specifically, if I'm going to a nice restaurant at a ski resort at night, then I need to wear nice leather shoes. However, snow is bad for leather, so is there a special wax that I can coat my shoes with beforehand to protect them?

I'm sure any type of wax will help, but I was wondering if there's a particular type of wax I should use, or if there's a popular wax, that a lot of people tend to use for this?

You're a paying customer who's probably paying way too much for mediocre resort food - you don't "have" to wear anything. I also don't think snow is going to kill your dress/leisure shoes... it's really not that scary :dunno:

Sounds like you are more of a leather shoe expert then any of us. But I would guess any shoe grease stuff would work.

@hobo - staff/customers at fancy restaurants at ski resorts can sometimes be fickle, especially at night. I'd rather play it safe, and dress appropriately.

@freshy - yep, I'm looking for some good shoe grease stuff.

Yeah but it dries kind of hazy white like frosted glass, I know they are working on a fix for that but.
My bad, I guess I was just assuming the OP was wearing white leather shoes, because... Well, doesn't everybody?
