How Do You Get Overshoes On & Off?

What a pain that was this morning!

Reckon it took me 10 minutes to get them on and 10 minutes to get them off enough to take my shoes off! If the pain in my fingers which may be arthritis plays up I won't have a chance!

Any tips or advice on how to do this please? I cannot believe it is supposed to be this difficult.

Best regards

talcum powder on the inside of the overshoes might help

Not easy to describe, but scrunch them up at the toe, then get them taut on the shoe bit by bit until they are fully on.

They will stretch over time, so after several rides should loosen up.

Hmm, that is interesting as I ordered Large 44 - 46, but in the overshoe it says XL 42 - 44!

Shoe size is 45.

Confused!

The Potsy approach here, put overshoes on first, up the leg, then once the shoes are on they pull down over the shoes. Getting them off a similar approach - undo the zip and strap, lift up the leg & take them off once the shoes are off.

That sounds like a seriously better over shoe than I have!

Mine only have a zip down the back so could not go 'up the leg' anyway!

Seems I may have bought the wrong ones!
