I Have Never Quite Understood This,

people pay £300, £400 or more for a pair of trainers,

 which if you wear in some areas will get you banned from a public house or restaurant,

 but the trainers or sneakers can be ruined if it rains, so to protect your expensive trainers a new company has come up with a brilliant idea to keep them clean, Dry Steppers, a pair of raincoats for your feet, Dry Steppers are high-quality plastic sheaths designed for sneaker heads who don’t mind paying $20 to keep their cool footwear looking fresh and pristine in any weather, they are both rain and snow-resistant and can also protect your expensive sneakers from gravel and dust, they are basically an upgraded version of the old plastic shopping bag trick, where people will tie bags around their feet to protect their shoes, they are made from tear-resistant plastic, feature non-slip rubber soles, as well as an adjustable draw-string and zipper system that insulates the shoe area perfectly, You can even get them printed with a variety of popular sneaker models, like Yeezy 350 V2’s, a Yeezy 750’s, or Jordan Air 11’s, to show off what you have on underneath,

Dry Steppers are the brainchild of Brooklyn-based sneaker designer Rich Franklin, a veteran of sneaker customisation, with names like Beyonce and Jay Z on his client list, He apparently got sick of seeing people walking in the rain with shopping bags around their feet, and decided to come up with a better alternative, “Everyone’s always in the situation where we look so silly kind of tiptoeing around in plastic bags. So I was like ‘let me legitimise this,’ let me make it kinda cool, or make it look acceptable to wear something,” Franklin told Style Insider, and that’s how Dry Steppers were born, now this is neat, if I cannot afford a £350 pair of trainers, just wear the Dry Steppers and fool everyone into thinking I have money! No wait a second, people are being mugged for £100 telephones, do I really want to risk being mugged for a pair of trainers?
