I was recently discussing how to dress well with one of my friends when he asked the question 'what do I do when it rains?' If you  favor leather soled shoes over rubber soled shoes this dilemma plagues you, especially in the winter and spring months when there seems to be more inclement weather.  As a side note, you...
