Exactly. Guys around these parts go sloshing through puddles and slush in their dress shoes. When they get salt spots on their shoes, I recommend overshoes. The usual response is a mention that overshoes are also commonly known as "rubbers," followed by Beavis & Butthead-style chuckling.

Can anyone show me a picture of how overshoes look like ?

It's not the plastic cover you use over your shoes, when you are out to see a new house, huhhh ?!?

In Scandinava we call them galocher or kalosjer, depending on what scandinavian language you speak... not to be confused with gamacher / gamasjer (gaiters), which don't cover the sole of your shoes - and definitly a different beast than the norwegian "fotpose".

The English analogue is galoshes (usage:  like trousers or pants, always in the plural).

I got married in allen admonds road warrior shoes.  Cost less and still impeccable quality.   I cannot justify the cost of cordovan leather.

I have 6 pairs of Allen Edmonds and 4 pairs of Alden.  I prefer Alden as well.

Try to get an Alden with Anitique leather sole and you will get compliment every time you wear the pair.

Call Yenni @ brick and motor Seattle . She is awesome to deal with !!
met Yenni on a trip to Seattle two years ago. got some beautiful suede shoes that day.  It was a shave meet up at an Irish bar.  My foot is 11 wide and I found Mephisto from spain to be made for wide feet.  i love my distressed ones. check them out.  I became obsessed with boots from Whites and Nicks and now have about 6 pair.  need to sell some and get real but that is another story.  bought my first ae's in 1964 .
