How far would you go to protect your shoes?

When it comes to fashion there is a thin line between function and vanity.  Keeping your beautiful leather shoes in top notch condition during the harsh Northeast winters takes a bit of planning.  Some men simply thrash their shoes expecting to get only one season from them while others trek through the snow in boots to switch into their Italian made loafers at work. Although, there is an oft missed third option- galoshes!

So, gentleman, what will it be?  Modern galoshes or the extra pair of boots for your commute?

Where do you draw the line between vanity and function?  Before or after donning these?
