STYLISH FOOTWEAR FOR A RAINY DAY
Which footwear is best? Let us share with you some of the most important aspects of selecting footwear, along with some “Collonil” shoe care products which will ensure that you enjoy your new shoes for as long as possible. If you’re planning your autumn wardrobe, the first thing you should do is invest in some high-quality and stylish shoes which will not only protect your feet but will make you look amazing even during the gloomy autumn days, just like in the newest Woody Allen comedy “A Rainy Day in New York”.
Many people say that the most stylish shoes are only suitable for the warm time of the year. That couldn’t be further from the truth! Thanks to the ingenuity of Italian shoemakers and designers, rain boots aren’t the only option for rainy weather. Instead, we have a wide range of exclusive and uniquely-designed footwear made with the highest technologies and materials for you to choose from.
So which shoes should you choose to protect your feet from moisture?
Sole and materiality – these are the two most important aspects to pay attention to when choosing footwear for the rainy season. In order to ensure that your feet are protected from moisture and the cold, we recommend choosing rubber (crepe, EVA, Extra Light), “Vibram“, ”S. Moritz”, or “Himalaya” soles or footwear with rugged soles. These soles have hydrophobic properties, which ensure that your foot remains dry even during the most adverse weather conditions. During the damp and unpredictable autumn weather, it’s best to avoid shoes with velour, fabric, and smooth soles.
“Vibram”, ”S. Moritz”, and “Himalaya” SOLES
The main features of these soles are durability, moisture resistance, stability, and traction. Initially, soles like these were used only for mountaineering boots, but today they are also used in footwear for water sports, fishermen, runners, or just casual footwear. Footwear designers also love these soles because of their unique technological properties and because they are very easy to shape, exceptionally stylish and comfortable. If you’re looking for some durable and lightweight shoes, then here’s your solution! Shoes with ”Vibram”, ”S. Moritz”, or ”Himalaya” soles are resistant to friction, impact, temperature changes, oils, acids, and salts. Brands like “Premiata’’, ”Del Carlo’’, ”Moma”, and others use these soles in footwear production and use both traditional and modern technologies. Comfort, durability, and exceptional style are guaranteed.

Premiata for men
Moma for men
Footwear with a rubber foam sole isolates heat and has hydrophobic properties. These soles ensure that the shoes are waterproof and extra lightweight. They also ensure exceptional style without tiring your feet. The flexible and soft sole created with special technologies (a mixture of rubber and rubber foam) reduces the tension and load on your feet, cushions your steps and allows you to move your feet naturally.
This is a very important criterion when choosing shoes for the cold season. We are all well aware that non-impregnated or non-special textile gets soaked and velour loses its beauty due to moisture. In the Dolita autumn/winter collection, you’ll find high-quality models made with technical nylon. From now on, you’ll be able to wear your favorite shoes even during rainy weather. We recommend choosing technical nylon shoes from “Premiata”, ”Vic Matie”, “RBRSL”, and other collections.
The first thing you should do for any pair of shoes, regardless of the material they are made from, is ensure that they last you many years with proper shoe care products. We recommend “Collonil” shoe care products.
If your shoes get wet, avoid drying them on or next to heaters at all costs.

Once you’ve purchased your beautiful new pair of autumn shoes, remember that even the most expensive and high-quality shoes may lose their initial beauty from excessive moisture, rain, and dirt. So make sure that you take good care of your shoes and clean them regularly, especially during the rainy season. Wishing you a beautiful autumn!
