raincoats for shoes / rain gear

raincoats for shoes

On rainy days, we worry about getting wet. Even if we have an umbrella or raincoat, our shoes still get wet remorselessly. There are many kinds of rain boots, however; rain boots are not in common use because they are not always portable. Thus these are rain coats for shoes. The concept comes from the poncho. These coats replace the original rain boots which are bulky and take up space to store, and are made from PVC waterproof material with Velcro fasteners to make them fast and easy to put on and take off. So they may be seen as a new type of “shoe raincoat”.
