Overall, great product for the price but I will be upgrading to something with a better grip soon.
These shoes fit well enough and they did not bother him though I'm sure it's because he cannot feel his foot. We only use one at a time because right now it's only the right foot that is most affected. After a walk around the block, he was done. The shoe did its job and protected his paw. The only issue is, there is now a hole worn through where his foot would have been dragging on the ground. I'm going to wrap these in duct tape to add a layer of protection.
These shoes are great but are too thin for what we need. I think these would work best as protection during rain or snow or somewhere that isn't all cement.
I tried putting them on a few times so myself and my dog got used to the idea of putting them on and off. My dog had trouble walking at first but eventually got the hang of it. What helped the most was playing fetch, his mind was so occupied by chasing after the ball he forgot he had boots on his feet and ran normally.
Snow got inside the cuff of the boot, they weren't usable until the next day when they dried over night. I think they helped keep the feet warm, my dog was no longer holding up one paw off of the snow.
*Update: I have had this for 10 days, used them 3 times and the bottom of the boots is starting to tear and peel. Two out of the four clips holding the velcro broke in half. My dog has only used these on snow, they have never been on concrete or anything else. After this I changed my rating to two stars.
They seem to fit him well, if they stay on - which I think is the problem for most dog owners, their dogs, and the boots. Once I got my pup to cooperate with me and put them on tightly, they stayed on pretty well. Though, one time one came off in the snow it was rather hard to find. The next time out I tightened the strap up a bit more and it seemed to stay on better.
I did notice that my dog still slips all over the place with these things on, though unfortunately. Not great for playing in deep snow for obvious reasons of them falling off and getting lost, but pretty decent just walking in thin snow or on cold surfaces. Both times after we came on I checked his feet and they seemed relatively dry unless any snow happened to fall in (my dog has hairy poodly legs so all the snow gets stuck on there instead). The reflective band also works well. Kind of a pain in the tail (heh) to put on when the dog is moving around and only moderately easier when still but eventually the paw should easily fit in there. From there you can tighten the band with the velcro strap. Depending on how tight it is you may have some slack.
I personally got these to protect my dogs' feet from the snow, cold, and salt and to mostly keep them warm and they seem to do a pretty good job, especially for the price. My dog seems to forget he's even wearing them outside for the most part but is still getting used to them while inside. Outside they've made him sound like a horse as the rubber soles hit the snow on the street. I couldn't help but too laugh.
Update (12/2016): After only one winter with these, holes started appearing in the shoes. These weren't worn extensively, only moderately. I patched them up and they still do the trick, for the most part, but the quality seems to not be there if you have to buy a new pair every winter. Before they fell apart though, they worked for keeping his feet dry.
As for the shoes, not only is their smallest size still too large (when in all other companies he was a medium), but they are also really hard to put on and they don't bend at all so he can't walk in them properly. They remind me of mittens that are really solid and you can't move at all...
The ones I ended up getting look like actual boots, they have a zipper so it's easy to get your dogs foot in without snagging his nails or hurting him and a it has a velcro strap to keep it secure once zipped.
