If you love your shoes as much as we do, you’ll want to read this. When you drive wearing your beloved footwear, the back of the shoe scrapes against the floor as you push the pedals, leaving scratches and nicks on your shoes. The unfortunate effect is especially pronounced on easily marred suede shoes and heels. Our solution? Keep a second pair of shoes in your car—any sort of backless shoe, such as sandals, slides, or slingbacks, will do—and switch into them while you drive. Sure, it’s an extra step to add to your routine, but ultimately you’re prolonging the lifespan of your shoes.
