Totes Overboots

These have been mentioned as lightweight, packable, and great for rain. I've had no luck finding them online . Can someone help?

check with major dept stores, also if you have a discount mall near you then check for a Totes Store.

Judy, did you notice at the site that they had a listing of the outlet stores in various states. You might want to call a store close to you.
Or since the site has a "contact us" you might want to send them an e-mail and see what they have to say about where the devil their boots are!

And since it's late in the day, time for a little whine and jeez: in the Totes introduction, they mention being famous for their RAINBOOTS! but they can't be found in their product listing? Who in Totes is in charge of the website? I'd be interested myself if they are really lightweight attractive little numbers, not just red or yellow rubber boots or Wellies in disguise.

Shanna, the only place I've found anything resembling totes rainboots is at They sell "Imitation Totes", which they say are "useless" for anything other than covering up your boots when you're riding your bike. The biker lady I talked to tried them on for me over her boots and said the soles were so thin they wouldn't be good for more than a couple of days walking around, if that. What was I doing at a biker web site, you may ask. Of course I ended up there because the utterly frustrating Totes web site drove me to hunt down any mention of "Totes" anywhere on the web. If I ever find these wretched boots, I'll post their whereabouts.
Bob, the department stores and discount malls I've been to, not to mention the shoe and sporting goods stores, don't have them (I'm in LA).
Thanks, Bob and Shanna, for your replies.

Have you checked with your local shoe repair shops? Mine carry items
like umbrellas and rain boots.
There is also a store here in New York, a housewares store that for sure carries them (rain boots that is, not necessarily Totes brand) because I've seen them hanging on the rack near the cashier--perhaps they'll take a telephone order: Gracious Home,
212 517 6300. I don't work for them, I'm just a customer.

I've seen them often at Marshall's and TJMaxx discount stores, and you might try online luggage outlets.

My husband has a pair that he puts over his dress shoes for the commute to work when it has snowed. I don't think you would want to use them as hiking boots, but they would work well as a backstop for occasional encounters with wet ground. They are very light and squish flat in luggage.

These are not at all like what the British call wellies (rural Americans just call them rubber boots.) Those are for walking in serious muck, and Totes would not hold up for that.
