This review is from: Tingley Men's Commuter Stretch Overshoe (Apparel)
Why would anyone either (A) STRUGGLE with 'rubbers" that cover the whole shoe and look dorky when it's the soles and where the soles meet the uppers that need the protection or (B) wear no "protection" and wreck a $100-200 pair of shoes in one commute in the rain snow and salt! These rubbers are the perfect answer...frankly I'd like to buy the company because I think Tingley is missing the boat by not marketing these effectively.

...And if I did own the company I would make an important design tweak. Here is the deal: They wear out at the back of the heal...especially if you buy them too small (don't buy them too small). I would reinforce the back of the heal with more rubber at the very back bottom and up the back. I would also imbed a small piece of harder plastic into the heal that was an "L" shape that would keep the back of the rubber from sliding under the heal...which is what causes the wear-through that will cause you to have to throw them away as that hole makes them useless. If Tingley did that, they would be five star plus ...and with better marketing they could sell the h--- out of them.

Despite the design improvement suggestion these things are a MUST HAVE for anyone who wears leather shoes for work or leisure who doesn't want to waste money buying new shoes after the storm or walk around in weather-abused shoes that look like crap.

(Feel free to call me Tingley for more details, I like old line family owned companies like you guys and would like to see you do well)
