The Shoe In overshoes I tested are the "closed-toe" models. Standard Shoe In overshoes are open-toed but have the same basic design with the fingers in the instep and the slip-resistant sole. I've also found an "outdoor" model online, which apparently features metal cleats for added slip-resistance. The only disadvantage I can imagine with the outdoor version is that it might not be suitable for indoor use on some types of flooring.
In short, I found the Shoe In overshoes to be a pretty darned elegant solution to an everyday inconvenience, and I'm quite happy that I get to keep my samples. As a semi-professional Denver-area handyman, I've already put them to the test with mud-caked boots going indoors and nice, dry socks going outdoors. This winter, I'll keep them at my back door for trips inside with armloads of firewood. And my wife is a gardener, so I suspect the Shoe In overshoes will become his/her items next spring. (Romantic, I know. Just like Bride of Frankenstein.)
