"Men: recommend some dress shoe rubber covers (if you use them)"


          

i saw these on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Totes-Mens-Rubber-Footwear-Overshoes/dp/B002NWZLSY/ref=pd_sim_shoe_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=16HZ2RSJJ6K1M3SAGAWW

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?

Thanks,
d

I think the most popular guys out there is SWIMS
http://www.swims.com/
https://www.google.com/search?q=swims+overshoes&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

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.

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.

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?

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?

sheesh.
