Spidi X-Cover Boot Covers
Nice style and design, poor quality.
Let me start by saying I would buy these again in a pinch, but if I wasn't in a pinch, I'd just put the money towards weather proof boots. If you're like me, you are trying to protect some nice leather boots. In my case Dr. Martins.
I took these through some crazy rain and the water somehow managed to creep inside and fill one of my leather boots with water. Sad day.
I was almost willing to forgoe that, as it was mostly my fault in not checking that all was sealed well, but then I went to tighten the latch and the strap just snapped off the fabric. Then I had to cut it off (thankfully I was carrying a leatherman), so that it wouldn't be flapping near the chain in the wind.
So, nice design, does protect against water, but I'd put the money towards a real boot if I could do it again.

Perfect for puddles and stormy weather
I needed some boot covers to get to and from work in the monsoon weather of Tucson, and these work wonders. Even at the price I paid for it I wasn't expecting the quality of the material to be so well made. It's got some weight to it, and overly durable. I could wear these all day and not worry about them ripping or falling apart. The velcro is incredibly high quality and the strap gives you a snug fit to secure around your boots or shoes. 10/10 would buy again, if these ever do break.

Product works well. Feet stay dry
Good product. Design could be a little better with the elastic and the bottom in general

Excellent bang for the buck
I've kept these things in the bottom of my bag for so long that I nearly forgot that I had them when I got caught in a sudden weather change.
So first off-- They are easy to keep with you. They roll up tight and can slide into the bottom of a backpack easily.
They also got the job done. Even after about 30 minutes in reasonably heavy rain, I didn't feel water seeping into my boots. I wear well-armored, tall, perforated leather boots for airflow in high heat, and I was able to attach these things to the boots despite the large heel cockpit. The velcro in the back runs up the length of my boot, which held up rather well.
What I will say, is that these aren't a substitute for waterproof/water resistant boots if you live somewhere that gets a lot of rain. I can't imagine the build holding up to constant use, it's fantastic for a portable alternative, but not something that would handle daily application.
Get these if you don't usually have to deal with rain, but no better than to go without a contingency plan.

These are great addition to my riding gear. I use aStar Supertech R size 46 Euro. The Size of XXL is a bit small to fit 46 Euro on aStars boots but they work , the contact patch is at the back so even if it's open at few places they work great and saved me couple of times completely dry from serious rain storms . They cover really good and do what they are suppose to.

easy to get on and off
For the price of these boot cover, they are easy to get on and off, high enough that no watter gets in and durable enough to ware all day long.

need to read the sizing info
The product is nice and good but sizing chart is not correct, i have size Large but should have bought XL to fit Size US 10 shoes/euro 44 i wear , the stretch elastic is at its max and does not fit around the bottom of the shoes to keep it secure. this was one big grouse for me.....
but compact size and easy to fold it into a bag is good feature...
