Galoshes are undeniably helpful accessories, but they're also so unfashionable that wearing them causes childhood bullies to instinctively write demeaning letters from their prison cells. For practicality without the spectre of the "Pen15" club, try Swims.
Designed by a Swede to combat NYC slush, Swims are low-top rubber overshoes that nattilly surround your footwear in a moisture- and tear-resistant puddle prophylactic. Each of the seven colors ensures quick on/off slippage with a heel loop and low-friction inner lining, and protects your joints with shock absorbing heels -- indispensable when chasing a cab, or dancing away the blues with an impromptu "Do the Good Day!" As a bonus, the inner lining also buffs your shoes with "a unique polishing action" (which, given their low-topness, will give you only 2/3rds-dazzling loafers, but 3/3rds breathtaking ballet slippers).
Swims also hawks an only-online, black and grey half-boot called The Mobster -- acknowledging that behind every mafioso is a childhood of ceaseless ridicule and cunning references to genitalia.
