Having good footwear destroyed by gear changing?

Hey, after put'n in many hours of rubber on the Rd, we all see how the gear shift leaver eat's away at your shoe-boot. & those endless contraptions, which are all missing the target, out there to cash in on the fix remedy? So after talking this over with bike club members , 5 of us have made a bet, where the winner gets a shouted dinner from the other 4, to come up with a gear shift shoe/boot saver set up, But the parts cant cost more than $5. So we have a 8 week time limit, & who knows? Someone might come up with a jem? So in 2 months time, if we have a winner? I'll post it up.

I used to use an old sock which I cut from the heel up. I sleeve it in over the shoe. I worked just fine. I actually used them in both shoes to keep them away from water and street dirt.

I also have used rubber sleeves on the lever and those rubber pads that attach to the shoe, but those cost more than $5.
