    Overshoes - Great for protecting prized possessions, but not very stylish. I've been looking for "see-through", "transparent", "translucent" overshoes so that people can view my stylish shoes (even in the rain - oh how vain haha), but have found none [​IMG] . Anyone aware of their existence? If not, maybe you designers out there (or anyone who has any kind of contact with them) could think of a way of marketing them. I'm sure they'd be quite popular!

    Another ATL-ien!

    If you are looking for something stylish, you'll be best with Swims. I doubt it would be possible to make see-through overshoes.

    Im not so sure about that. I think it would better to just have covers the same color as your shoes.

    I think the company that makes clear metal collar stays also makes these. Let me find the details...

    I tried to find some many years ago when my kids were in school. With so many kids wearing sneakers in the snow and rain, some company could sell millions of them.

    I do not have any condors, but I will buy some and try it if you agree to sell them on your site if they work.
