There are three ways to protect your shoes during inclement weather. You can wear separate boots and carry your shoes in a bag. You can wear heavy boots or galoshes that fit over your shoes. But for our money, the third option is the best: wearing modern, lightweight shoe covers that protect your shoes against the elements by way of state-of-the-art materials.
We definitely think our shoe covers for men are the best way to go. But this isn't just because we sell them. Our company was founded on the principle of designing a better shoe cover. Old-style galoshes worked well enough, but we believed – and still believe today – that there is a better way. Our shoe covers are that better way.
If you're not convinced, we invite you to consider these four scenarios for which modern shoe covers are better than boots and old-style galoshes:
1. Walking Around Downtown
Drive through downtown in bad weather and you'll see attorneys, business professionals, and community leaders wearing boots and old-style galoshes. But pay close attention and you will also notice something peculiar: most of them aren't walking in the usual, fluid way. Their walking almost seems unnatural. That's because their boots are heavy and clunky.
Modern shoe covers are purposely made with lightweight materials to avoid this problem. Carrying less weight on your feet allows for a more natural gait. In fact, our waterproof shoe covers for men are so light and comfortable you might forget you're wearing them.
2. Attending a Business Meeting
Next up, consider attending a business meeting in a pair of boots or old-style galoshes. If you are wearing separate boots, you have to take them off and put your shoes on. Otherwise, you'll have to work extra hard to earn the respect of your peers. You can wear old-style galoshes, but their size and bulk make it more difficult to get them out of the way. Modern shoe covers are easily removed and placed in a discreet waterproof storage bag.
3. Going to Court
If you are an attorney, the last thing you want to do is show up for court wearing heavy boots or galoshes. First and foremost, there may be no place for you to store them safely. In addition, you carry everything you have with you into the courtroom – which brings up a second point: walking in with a pair of heavy boots in your hands is quite unprofessional. Yet no one needs to see your lightweight shoe covers because you have placed them in their storage bag.
4. Attending Black-Tie Events
Heavy boots and old-style galoshes are an absolute no-no when attending black-tie affairs. You go to such events dressed in your finest tuxedo and dress shoes. You wouldn't dare take the risk of wrinkling your pants by stuffing them into a pair of boots or galoshes. Yet you cannot wear your pants over the top. The boots are too big.
Shoe covers are the solution. They will protect your formal shoes without jeopardizing your perfectly pressed pants. No worries about wrinkles and, of course, you don't have to worry about finding a place to store your protective foot gear. Put them in the waterproof storage bag and hang them with your coat. Done and done.
There are appropriate times and places for heavy boots and old-style galoshes. But in the modern and fast-paced world in which we now live, there are more scenarios for which waterproof rain shoes are a better fit. This is why GC Tech was founded. We have a better way to protect your shoes.
