SWIMS Brand Galoshes
High Quality Swims, Small Fitting
I gave this review 5 stars across the board, even the "Fit" category. After you buy the right size, they fit fantastic and will never fall off. You have to know what you're getting into with these, particularly if you're ordering them online. They do fit small - I have a size 9D dress shoe and the Large were perfect. I could not fit the Mediums around my shoes, even for shorter dress shoes. If you're unsure, just order both sizes and return the other (BB has an excellent return policy!).
Excellent quality and they look great!

High quality galoshes to protect your shoes
These galoshes are of high quality.
Please beware that the sizing chart at BrooksBrothers.com is CORRECT. If you wear shoes in US size 12, get an XL pair (just like the guide says). Some other sites say that for shoes in sizes 11.5 - 13 you should get a pair in XXL, which is wrong, they will run too big.

I had a difficult time finding sizing information for these online, and wasn't sure whether or not I could trust most of the information regarding sizing provided online.Well, it turns out that Brooks Brothers sizing was, in my experience, 100% correct.
I'm generally a US10D, and after placing an order for both L and XL, the shoes were literally (no pun) swimming within the XL swims - which, as BB rightly states, are meant for an, "11.5-13." I then tried the large, and the fit was perfect, IMO. They are a bit snug, but you just can't size up with these if you're wearing dress shoes - the fit is sloppy/wobbly and might even affect the way you walk. Whereas with the L, you don't even know that they're on.
Anyway, I wear the following sizes:
UK9E (which translates to a US10D) on the 7000/8000 lasts by John Lobb.
UK9E in 348 by Crockett & Jones
If you're still unsure, just buy both sizes and then return the pair that doesn't fit - you can even take them back to a local BB so as to save on shipping costs. But I would assume that the information provided within the "Select a Size" drop box is on point for most people.

These overshoes are pretty pricey, but they work well and look pretty good for what they are. Be careful with the sizing of these. I ordered the large size and it snugly fits my size 8.5 Allen Edmonds Elgin (last 5) and a pair of Alden 8.5 Barrie last PTB. Had I bought the recommended size (medium) for these shoes, I don't think they would have fit.
