Okay, so I just stumbled across this trick, and I can't wait to see if it actually works!  I actually have a very personal interest in this one.  Read on...

When I was a teenager, I had a pair of Sketchers that I wore all the time.  They were my absolute favorite, and I never thought twice about wearing them everywhere, for every situation.

Well, unfortunately, I probably should have thought twice before I went river-tubing with my cousins one Summer.  But alas, I did; and my favorite shoes were waterlogged and ruined.

I tried to keep wearing them, despite my mom's insistence that they smelled terrible and were falling apart.  Finally, when I was 18, I spent a Summer in Spain; and I decided to retire my favorite shoes in Pamplona, upon finally witnessing the Running of the Bulls.  It seemed appropriate. :)

But I digress.

I wish I would have at least taken the time to waterproof those old shoes of mine, especially if it would have been as easy as covering them in beeswax!

So again, if you have any idea, leave a comment letting me know if this one works.  Either way, I can't wait to try it for myself!
