The unisex Shoe Covers is available in six sizes: x-small, small, medium, large, x-large and xx-large. The Shoe Covers are slip-on waterproof booties made of black nylon with reflective patches. The bottom is mostly open with a piece of material under the toe to hold the front in place and an adjustable Velcro strap in the arch area.

According to Health Canada, the Shoe Covers can get caught on the pedal if the Shoe Covers does not fit entirely flush against the shoe sole. This can prevent the rider from dismounting, resulting in a fall hazard.

Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC) has received five (5) incidents of Shoe Covers getting caught on the pedals. This resulted in three riders falling over in which one rider reported a broken wrist, cracked rib and a sore neck.

Health Canada has not received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these products.
