Fred & Matt Overshoes

It’s funny how nearly all of the overshoe (galosh) companies come from Sweden. And the company being highlighted today, Fred & Matt, are no different.

While the Winter has not been overly cold or snowy or anything like that, it has felt like it has lasted a lifetime and I have been dreaming of the sun coming back and to stop feeling dreadful, health and weather wise.
