I basically wear one pair of shoes at work. They are a pair of black leather loafers and go with 90% of what I wear. So I leave them in my personal drawer at and wear my old croc-ish shoes to and from work. I've done this for over a year. My loafers are in good condition. I wore them to lunch today and noticed a scarred place in the leather, looks like I scraped the finish off. Once I got back to work, I colored it in with my handy Sharpie. Yep. I'll get another year out of that!
