About 5 years ago for Christmas, my kids asked me what I wanted. I remembered how much I loved my galoshes as a kid. They kept your feet dry, they kept the bottoms of your pants dry, and you could wear your regular comfortable shoes! I hate big heavy cumbersome boots! Anyway, these are made by the Lacrosse Co. They are not cheap, but they wear really well, and they are Top Notch! I decided to dig these out in preparation for Winters onset. Thanksgiving is a week from tomorrow after all. Peace...!!!
