I was looking for a product that would protect my dress shoes in nasty weather, but would not be so conspicuous that I would feel self conscious when walking into a meeting with them on. These rubber overshoes do the trick. Here are my comments:

1. These run very small, so you need to really size up to get something that will fit comfortably. I bought a medium, which is supposed to fit shoe sizes 8.5 to 9.5, but these very snugly fit my size 8 shoes, and I can't imagine them comfortably fitting a larger shoe size.

2. These are not intended for sneakers, walking shoes with thick rubber soles, or dress boots. They are meant for dress shoes. The negative reviews complaining that these don't work for other things simply miss this point.

3. These are not hard to put on and take off IF you choose the proper size.

4. These look about as stylish as is possible for a rubber overshoe.

5. I have not noticed any "tire" smell unless I hold them within about 6 inches from my nose. Since there is no reason to do that, ignore the negative reviews claiming that these will smell up a room. They don't and they won't.

6. These are good for wet and muddy surfaces, so long as you are not standing in water, slush, snow, or mud that is more than about an inch deep. Beyond that you need something else to protect your shoes.

7. While the toe on these is slightly narrowed for style, I have not had any problem putting these over my different dress shoes, as some negative reviewers have experienced. Once again the trick is to make sure that you order the right size.

8. They easily fold up and don't take up a lot of room in my briefcase when the weather changes and I don't need to use them.

Bottom line: These are effective and not conspicuous. I recommend them.

Update Dec. 10, 2013: Still using the same pair. They work great.

My husband had been ruining his dress shoes as he trekked several blocks through rain and puddles to get to the train station. He has ruined his last pair of expensive shoes, thanks to these Isotoner rubber rain boots.

They fit snuggly onto the shoe, covering nearly all of it, and unless someone is looking closely, it is difficult to tell he's wearing them; they appear to be black dress shoes without laces.

In addition to appearance, my husband likes the way they can be folded neatly to fit into his travel bag when the weather is fair.

He has thanked me more for buying his this product than many previous gifts. Although he has worn them during the last couple of months only, he has no complaints thus far.

Although these rain boots look very nice, they do not fit over the shoes they were purchased to protect. The toes of the rain boots are quite tapered, so they would probably fit well over dress shoes with a narrow toe.

Listen to the other reviews..they are right. The product is great, but you need to order a size up. I am a size 11.5-12 mens shoe and I got the XXLarge size 13-14, fits my dress shoes like a glove. Well made, and the traction on the bottom of the shoe helps on slippery tile floors.

I ordered a pair of size 8.5 to 9.5. However, it is so small that it won't fit for all my shoes which all are 8.5. I wrote a complaint earlier and the vendor promise to send me another pair of the next size larger. However, that was the last time I heard from them. I still do not have the over shoes I need.

I should have read the critical reviews more carefully, because these overshoes do not even come close to fitting my size 11 shoes as advertised. They look great and def. look like they'd get the job done if they would just fit. I was looking forward to these, because I've been ruining pair after pair of dress shoes in rain and snow over the years. Extremely narrow at toes for my very average widge dress shoes. Even if I had narrow feet, the length of the large is insufficient to fit a size 11 dress shoe as advertised. I originally veered toward the large over the xl, because I didn't want my shoes swimming in the overshoes, but that was a mistake.

I bought the large size that was supposed to fit shoe sizes 9.5 - 11, yet they were way too small to fit over my size 9.5 shoe. I am returning it, but am still on the hook for a $5 return shipping fee, since Amazon claims it wasn't their fault.

I am very disappointed with the purchase of these rain shoes. I have contacted the seller by e-mail to ask for a size exchange, but there has been no reply. The shape of this rain shoe will not fit any of the shoes that I wear. The toe design is very tapered and narrow which makes it impossible to fit over my shoes. I do not recommend the purchase of this rain shoe to anyone.
Thanks!

Get one size larger than they tell you!
For example, I wear a size 9 shoe and they said to order medium for sizes 8.5 to 9.5.
Instead I ordered a large, (following the advice in someone else's review)and it fit my shoes just right.
These galoshes are ideal for dress laceup shoes (Oxfords.)
They have a tasteful understated look, so if you're wearing a suit they do not scream out "Galoshes!" as you're walking down the street.
Haven't worn them in the rain yet (just got them) but they cover the shoe really well.
