We know that shoes are made of different materials like leather, fabric, rubber and others. But, did you know that the shoe covers we use to protect our shoes from harsh elements or for any other valuable purpose, also are made of different materials?
There are factors to consider in choosing the right type of shoe cover to use. On top would be the kind of use whether for home or for professional use.
