is it safe to wear leather soles in the rain??

  1. I just bought a pair of new boots and they have leather soles, and I was wondering if any of you guys wear leather-soled shoes in the rain? Does that damage the shoes??
  2. I have worn shoes/boots with finished leather soles in the rain with no problems.

    If the sole is unfinished leather (i.e., blahniks), they are not good in heavy rain. Don't ask me how I know this one. :crybaby:
  3. I usually avoid it because it's not great for the sole and doesn't do a lot to prolong the life of the shoe, but I get a lot of my leather soled shoes resoled after several wears, anyway
