It’s On Sale: SWIMS Galoshes
Shrine Haberdashers has
SWIMS overshoes on sale for $35, plus something around $5 for FedEx shipping (see below). That’s the cheapest I’ve ever seen these offered. The sale isn’t available on their website, so you’ll have to call their store (312.675.2105) or email them (firstname.lastname@example.org) to order.
For those unfamiliar, you can slip these over your shoes to protect them from rain, snow, and mud. Once you arrive to your destination, you can slip them off so that you’re not having to wear rainboots in potentially inappropriate places. Choose brown for brown shoes, black for black shoes, and blue if you wear blue raincoats. Shrine also has an orange version not listed on their website. Orange goes with nothing, but if you’re the type to like such things, they can provide a touch of humor.
(Update: Shrine just told us they sold out. To all those who were able to grab a pair, enjoy your new SWIMS).
