    They're interesting. May I ask: firstly, are they easy to put on and take off, and secondly, where are they actually made?

    My pleasure - yes, you start by placing the toe in first , then pull over the heel and they are on. To get them off just do the reverse. They are designed in Germany and manufactured in China, and the quality is very good. Overall the package is great and would make a great present, as they come in their own carry case, inside a presentation box - they look very smart.

    We stock 4 colours, but can order in any of the 14 colours in different sizes.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your reply. Actually, rather than the process of how to put on an overshoe; what I really meant was are they easy to put on -regarding how much stretch or elasticity that they have in the material from which they're made.

    Would these have an inner lining similar to Swims or the material inside is the same as the outside?

    Covy's have developed their very own flexible, heat and cold resistant material called "CoverFlex" that protects your shoes from snow, ice, mud or dirt. The material is very resilient to stretching on and off shoes, and I have fully tested these myself and they are really easy to put on and off.

    Sizing is key to getting a great fit. If you have slim, flat or pointed shoes then we recommend going towards the smaller size closest to your shoe size.

    For wider and chunkier shoes and boots go towards the larger sizes around your shoe size.

    They are completely made of the same "Coverflex" in a one piece moulding. They are very durable, but sharp glass and nails are best avoided as this might damage the cover shoe.

    These are made in a one piece moulding from Covy's own "CoverFlex" that is soft and gentle on your shoes inside but durable and protective from the elements on the outside.

    We will hopefully be getting some subs coming through of the Ramsey in Whiskey cordovan. Very tricky leather to work with and some didn't make the strict quality standards of AS, and have been graded subs.

    Hopefully over the next couple of months, but until they arrive can't detail sizes yet.

    Outstanding! I ordered a pair or expresso and in less than a week I received them. They look and feel great, and can't wait to use them here in Seattle within the next few days. I bought some saphir products here to help ease some of the associated shipping cost, but imo a fine quality purchase and exemplary service.
