  7. 4 Tips to Winterize Your Boots and Protect Your Feet

    Winterize Your Boots

    Whether it’s water, dirt or snow, winter is hard on your shoes—especially your boots.

    Maybe you work in sales, or maybe you don’t, but either way, it’s likely that you’ve been to trade shows or conventions. According to the Convention Industry Council, 205 million people in the United States attend conventions, conferences, congresses, trade shows and exhibitions each year. Conventions are essential to gaining new knowledge in your field, networking with cross-country colleagues, and promoting your company and/or products, and, while all are beneficial, conventions can do a number on your body, particularly on your feet.
