Guide Review - Sloggers Waterproof Overshoes - Discontinued

Rainy weather brings a dilemma - do I switch to my rarely-worn waterproof hiking boots and risk getting new blisters, or do I walk in my regular shoes and just get wet feet? Now I have a third option - slip on Sloggers overshoes over my regular walking shoes for a waterproof walk. You won't win a racewalk in Sloggers, but they will make a rainy day workout a bit more pleasant. Plus, they are significantly cheaper than a pair of waterproof shoes, not to mention lighter than boots. Walkers caught out on the 20-mile 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk in a sleet and rain downpour blessed their foresight in bringing along Sloggers. This is a great item to keep you walking in wet and cold weather.

Sloggers Waterproof Overshoes, Member mitchfam

I purchased these overshoes almost ten years ago, they were a God send. I have been a walking letter carrier for many years and this is the only product that was easily slipped over my work shoes. Other overshoes were too tight to put on or take off. I was absolutely exhausted by the time I put them on. Not to mention that the tightness made me very crabby. However, I have not been able to locate any for several years. I have looked on every website that I could fine but have been unsuccessful to locate any. HELP!
