i saw these on Amazon:
i need to buy some for my husband...any of y'all have experience with this or other brands? are they true to size? do they fit snug or leave a gap? do they still look stylish when you have them on?

12711240, wow, hella expensive. but i'm sure they are high quality|

12711232, dress overshoes|

I think the most popular guys out there is SWIMS
But they're probably on the higher-end price wise.
they offer a range of colors.
that said, there's no reason you can't get a lesser known, and much cheaper brand. especially if you're going to get them in straight black.
i don't own a pair of overshoes myself, but i certainly thought about it back when I had to go to the office on a wet day.
12711246, I don't either|

For snow, I wear boots and carry my shoes. For really rainy days, I have dainite soled shoes.
12711259, i'm very surprised that neither of you own a pair|

12711535, they're definitely a non-essential item|

which is actually what makes them a good gift.
it's something thoughtful that the average dude probably hasn't bothered to go out and get himself because there's likely always something he needs/wants more.
but he'll probably use em.

12711269, I would just buy some rubber boots|

12711613, I live in Chicago, have not worn boots all winter because of these |

12711642, yes! i was looking at those|
Posted by Damali, Wed Jan-28-15 02:03 PM
but some of the reviewers claimed they weren't snug enough...
but i know some people like to post complaining reviews no matter what.
those are the ones i'm leaning toward, even tho Totes is a more recognizable brand
oh and were they true to size? or did you have to buy a size up?
12711650, true to size, very snug, they will be more loose fitting in pointed toes though|

a quality G has appropriate foot gear for all weather conditions.
12711635, *rolls eyes* he is ASKING FOR THEM. is that ok with you?|
Posted by Damali, Wed Jan-28-15 02:00 PM
I'm just better than him at doing online research when it comes to which is the best/cost-effective products
then i let him know what i found and he purchases it.
again, IS THAT OK WITH YOU?
12711653, say, "Damn babe, I couldn't find em...but I found THESE" |
