Some things about dressing, you learn at a young age. So when sloppy weather brings salt, slush and even heavy rain to NYC, I wear my galoshes, overshoes, rubbers or whatever you call them. I keep one pair at the office, one at home. Don't think there is a lot of choice in these, so I've been wearing the Tingley ones, the storm model since as long as I can remember. Found them a bit difficult to track down when I needed to replace my last pair, but the web provided multiple vendors. (Mine actually came from Walgreens) I also found a pair of "vintage" B.F Goodrich pair that look like brown dressy wingtips when cleaning out an uncle's home upstate. I'm afraid they'll rip so wear them sparingly.
