I purchased a similar pair of these which cost twice as much and were obviously well made which these aren't. I struggled to get them over my size 4 boots and gave up it was such a struggle and I was furious as I needed to go out when the pavement was slippy. Totally useless and as I bought them at the beginning of December its too late to return them. Don't waste your money on these and buy elsewhere. My original ones lasted me years which were called "Get a grip". I thought these were the same as they looked like them but sadly not.
