New Delhi, July 29 IANS | 3 months ago

Keep leather shoes away from your sight, focus on grip and go for easy to maintain footwear when it is raining cats and dogs.


Payal Bathija, COO, Heel & Buckle Pvt. Ltd., says that while buying footwear for the monsoon season, you need to make sure that your footwear selection has a good grip.

"It is important that your feet are held in place so that you don't slip if your shoes get wet," she told IANS.

She also suggests to avoid leather footwear as much as possible as it tends to spoil if your shoes get wet.

"Leather has a tendency to support the growth of fungus and bacteria when wet, making it an uncomfortable choice for monsoon," she added.

Bathija recommends five types of footwear for women.

"A pair of flip flops as they are easy to maintain and dry easily. It is important to pick gladiators or low heels with an ankle strap detail to ensure that your foot has the required grip to brave the messy puddles and slippery pavements," she said.

"Sometimes, for corporate dressing or formal occasions, a pair of neutral closed shoes is an absolute requirement. In such a scenario, having a pair of closed shoes in canvas or PVC makes sure that your feet are protected from the rain," she added.
