Sneak Peak: Santa's Nice List

We were able to get a sneak peak at Santa's Nice List for this year, and we found your name on it! Know what that means? You should treat yourself to a pair of shoes that will get you from day to night with no problem. With the Holidays upon us, we realize that your days seem to be getting more and more hectic between all the shopping, work parties and family get-togethers, so we're going to make this easy for you. We've created a list of shoes that will help make your days Merry and Bright, even if all your Christmases are white. We'll get you from work in the morning through errands in the afternoon and into parties and events at night.

Women's Bandolino Cranne Tall Dress Boots

These boots are stylish enough to pair up with a dress and some tights or leggings for the office and are still dressy enough to take you from the office during the day to the holiday party that night. With the small heel, they become appropriate for the workplace, but ensure you'll be comfortable all day and into the night, which means you won't need to ditch your heels in the corner halfway through your party. The neutral colors make it easy to pair up with any color dress.

Women's Jessica Simpson Mugara Casual Dress Shoes

These red flats are perfect for a pop of color with your little black dress. Wear the dress with a cardigan at the office, and remove for the party at night. If red is too bold of a color, we have them in black and tan as well. The bow adds the perfect finishing touch to these shoes, and the flat heel will keep you on your toes all day long.

 Women's Mootsies Tootsies Outhere Dress Shoes

In this pair of heels, you'll be able to be on your feet all day. They come in black or taupe, as pictured above, so they'll work with any color clothing in your wardrobe. The cushioned footbed and pump design provide all day comfort and functional style. 

Well, how did we do? Looking for more? Additional options can be found by visiting our website! Wishing you all a very Happy Holidays from everyone at Rogan's Shoes.

Winterizing Your Shoes

It's November but before you know it snow will be on the ground and your shoes will  be unprotected.  With the moisture from snow and slush, along with salt being used everywhere, your shoes will take some punishment. But have no fear, we have tips to help preserve your shoes as much as possible during the winter season.

If you have a canvas shoe, you can waterproof it with some beeswax and make the snow deflect right off your foot.  It is a simple and effective way to preserve your canvas shoes for the winter, To see the original post, click here.

Another tip to keep in mind during the winter is to clean off the salt from your shoes. This can ruin leather, and also leave salt marks on your boots. You can check out our post from earlier this month to fight those pesky salt marks. GQ Magazine suggests that you use a water and white vinegar mix to clean. Salt marks can make your shoes and boots look much more ragged than they are.

For winter runners, invest in some waterproof shoes to help make your runs more comfortable in the outdoors.  While they may be heavier, running in wet shoes is often more uncomfortable. You may want to think about how the ankle is protected too in winter running.  The Asics GT-2000 GTX for women is a shoe that offers a lightweight option while providing a waterproof shoe.

Prevention is one of the biggest things you can do for your shoe to make sure it makes it through the winter season. You can also purchase sprays or kits to help protect your shoes. Be sure to check out our online selection to find waterproof shoes at

How To: Remove Salt Stains from Shoes

Nobody really wants it to happen, and nobody really looks forward to this time of the year, but soon enough the snow will be here. While the snow brings great adventures and outdoor activities for people of all ages, it also brings some of the not so nice things like shoveling our driveways, and salt on the roads. All the salt that is spread during the winter wreaks havoc on shoes and causes staining on the surface, ruining the appearance before winter is even halfway over. Read below to see how to remove the salt stains from your shoes to keep them looking as good as you do all winter long and to make them last longer, too!

  • What you will need:
    • 1 cup cold water
    • 1 tablespoon vinegar
    • cotton towel
    • small cup
  1. Combine the water and vinegar and mix well
  2. Get the towel wet with the mixture and wipe down the shoe surface
  3. Let the shoes dry (make sure this is done in a natural way, such as air drying because applying artificial heat could cause the leather to crack)
  4. If all of the stains didn't come off on the first try, repeat the steps until they come clean

  •  What you will need:
    • 1 cup of water
    • 1/2 tsp. dish soap
    • old toothbrush 
    • small cup
    • clean cloth (2)
    • white vinegar
  1. Mix the two ingredients together in a small cup stirring to create soap suds
  2. Use the the toothbrush to put the suds onto the stained areas of the Uggs and scrub well.
  3. Use the clean cloth with plain water on it and remove the salt residue and soap
  4.  Use another clean cloth dipped into the white vinegar and rub over stains that still remain after using the soap suds
  5. Wipe off any remaining materials on the boots with a damp cloth 

  • What you will need:
    • clean cloth (2)
    • white vinegar
    • suede brush or soft terry-cloth towel
  1. Blot the suede with cloth dipped in the vinegar
  2. Use the other cloth to blot the suede dry
  3. Brush the suede once dry in a circular motion until the fabric looks new

A couple more handy tips:

  • Did the wet snow soak through your boots giving you wet feet as well? After you've dumped the water out of your boots (if there is a puddle), remove any insoles that aren't permanent and place several sheets of newspaper into the entire foot area of the boot and let sit overnight. The newspaper will soak up the water, and when the insides are dry, you can simply throw out (reduce, reuse, recycle) the newspaper. Depending on the dampness of the inside of your boots, it may take more than one night or set of newspaper sheets to completely dry the insides.  
  • When you buy a new pair of suede boots, moccasins or any other type of suede shoe (including Uggs) also purchase something to weatherproof your shoes. The easiest thing to do is purchase a spray can of weatherproofing solution. Spray it evenly onto the entire surface of your shoes and let dry completely before wearing. This will make it so water doesn't sit on the surface of your shoes and keep them looking nicer, longer.
