by Natalie Matthews
Rain, sleet, snow, wintry mix, miles of walking, apple-picking, muddy football games: thanks to all of this, few things in your wardrobe take a harder hit than your favorite boots, but whether they're leather, suede or even rubber, they'll benefit from these tips above.
From just-out-of-the-box protective measures to fell-in-a-puddle crisis control, they'll keep your default boots looking less abused and more charmingly "well-loved." (Plus, they'll save you serious dollars on shoe repairs, which means, of course, you'll be able to go out and buy another pair of boots sooner than you might've thought. Double win?)
