Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by D Young Plumbing and Heating Services9th November 2022
Not only does it make it easier when going in and out of properties especially when the weather is bad. The customers love them as its clear you respect their property.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Ian Lester - Electrician25th July 2022
Easy to put on and take off - a lot easier than the throw away plastic things but considering that they are just a cover they are expensive because mine will not last a year..
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Around To6th February 2022
Very decent pair of surface protectors, reusable and washable ideal for domestic jobs, just wish I had gotten them sooner.
Hesitated on making a purchase and thought they were unnecessary but after tripping on a dust sheet, the usual got to, and causing more of a mess than it was protecting I got these instead.
I would like them a little more grippy on smooth surfaces, especially as a little dust renders the grippy bit almost useless. They work, and keep me from tracking in mess from outside. Especially in the rainy months.
Easy to slip on and do not look as ridiculous as the disposable ones. Neoprene is hard wearing and a good fit over both my trainer style and boot steel toecaps.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Redpath Installs12th August 2021
Brilliant Product, I got a pair for each of my guys to have in their vans, so easy to use, really secure on your feet and no need to keep worrying about removing boots before entering anybodys house. I was never a fan of the disposable ones but these for me now are a must have.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Gas Serve NW31st July 2021
Had such high expectations for these after all the positive feedback and reviews that have been made.. However after 2 days they kept coming off my boots and ended up throwing them in the bin. Back to single use
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by RMD Electrical Services29th June 2021
I brought a couple of sets of these a while ago and are lasting well, i got fed up with the cheap plastic ones ripping after 5 minutes, these are expensive which put me off but the reviews convinced me and glad I did, if your working in rough floors I would imagine they would wear very quick but for wooden or carpet should do well
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Riverside Electrical & Property Services13th June 2021
Good strong reusable shoe covers, much better than the disposable shoe covers which can rip as you put your foot into them. I highly recommend them.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by SmartPipe Plumbing Services30th March 2021
Great product, great idea. The productis perfect for my self going in and out of customers houses with muddy boots. They can be washed and reused. Highky recommend.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by G And C Gas And Plumbing Services26th March 2021
Haven't actually worn them yet as I'm on a longer site job rather than domestic but like the idea a lot and have told other people about them. Happy with the value for money and the quality. Durable since they are washable and by the time you've worn a few times you've made your money back compared to the disposables.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Redpath Instslls26th March 2021
I've used these a few times and good quality so far. I got my normal size which fit fine not too tight. Good value for money through the Tool Talk deal.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Lakins Heating and Plumbing26th March 2021
Best shoe covers out there, customers love it when we put them on too! Slip on, slip off, job done. Keeps carpets clean and don't have to take shoes off. Bargain and will buy again.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Rose Gas Plumbing & Heating Ltd25th March 2021
Good quality, shape a little unsuited to my footwear but may just be mine. Again might be my footwear but they sometimes slip off the back a little, but otherwise very good quality. Does the job as required, appreciated by my customers, got mine at a bargain price through Tool Talk but not sure if I would pay full price.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Walkwood Plumbing & Heating Ltd25th March 2021
Used them a couple of times, got a couple of pairs, easy to slip on and off. So far so good for the quality, neoprene type material so they shouldn't bubble, keep my feet warm. Happy to have paid £8 for them.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Paul Smoker Roofing25th March 2021
Used these for around 12 months now, one pair last around that time for me as I use them mainly when doing quotes for roofing jobs so not all the time but worn a couple of hours a week at least. Quality and good value through Tool Talk as I've paid £20 for a pair before elsewhere. Saves time without having to take my boots off.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Cromer Plumbing & Heating Limited25th March 2021
Really good quality, hard wearing, durable. Value for money with the Tool Talk deal, Toolstation was double the price. Easy to put on and off, comfortable and cushioned. The disposable ones would rip so we'd go through 5 or 6 a day sometimes, these are much thicker.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by P and r heating25th March 2021
Had my eyes on these for a while, much better quality and value than the disposable ones, good value as well on the Tool Talk deal compared to what they normally are. Sick of seeing the blue ones about everywhere, these keep the van and customers houses tidy. Comfortable and I like the hook to clip to trousers, easier to find and put on than the disposable.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Oliver’s Electrical25th March 2021
Got them on right now, its been around a week of using them in domestic settings and so far so good. The quality is good and when they are loose they can be clipped together. Customers actually comment on them to ask what they are and say what a good idea they are too. Easy to put on, I wear size 11 boots and they are a bit snug but that means they don't slip off when wearing. Good value for money and easy to buy through the Tool Talk deal, very impressed.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by GSW Plumbing & Heating24th March 2021
Brilliant product, can't believe I haven't purchased any before. Fit nicely over shoes or boots and very durable. Nice and flexible and fit very easily. They are much better than the standard disposable ones. A little pricey but well worth the money and definitely worth purchasing.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Danny the Handyman24th March 2021
Built to last, 5 seconds to put them on, I like the fact I can hang them up in the van as well. Only thing is they are a bit too expensive in my opinion.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Horsfields plumbing and heating ltd24th March 2021
Absolutely brilliant product, best I've had. Easy to fit and remove. Really well designed for my boots, especially while working, long term durability. Good quality product that gives me confidence when in a customers property knowing I won't damage any floor surfaces.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by D Marsden Plumbing & Heating24th March 2021
Fantastic quality and easy to slip on and off. Not the cheapest at £18 but since you can wash them and use them over and over again they are great value.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by The Glazinator23rd March 2021
I have only used the MukGuards a handful of times so far, but I didn't notice any wear or damage. They feel tough and well manufactured. I'm size 12 and they slip on easily, you can carry a bucket with one hand and get them on with the other hand without having to put down what you are holding. Sole is grippy, even walking on tiles or laminated flooring you don't feel like you're skating on ice like I've experienced with some other products. So far so good, if in a couple months they are still intact I would say a well spent 8 quid! I would recommend Mukguards, save your liability insurance and your customer's carpets!
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Giblin plumbing and heating23rd March 2021
Great piece of kit. Unlike cheap plastic ones that cost almost as much for a pack but these fit like slippers over boots. Has clip to keep together and hang on your belt. Love them, great ingenious idea 10/10. Slip on easily, snug fit, like slipper over boots, carry clip worth it alone. Just a fantastic item, got on sale worth every penny.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Fenna & Company Limited23rd March 2021
Great quality, simple to use and get on and off. Great product overall and fairly priced, only gripe if I had one would be for the loops at the back to be metal as clipping them on and off already is showing its weakness.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by J W Heating & Plumbing Solutions Limited23rd March 2021
Been using these for several years now after switching over from Cleanboots, excellent quality and snug fit. The black tread pattern gives a much cleaner appearance than white on the Cleanboots. Generally get around 5 months use from a pair. The little loop hole is great for putting on and off easily. They come with a little clip for keeping them together when not in use and can be hooked in the van or on a belt. Does what it says on the tin, protects customers floors and carpets from dirty work boots while retaining health and safety measures required by safety boots/trainers. Expensive for what they are but serve a purpose and you get what you pay for, although the manufacturers must have a big profit margin in these.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by N.E.S Plumbing Solutions23rd March 2021
Feel like a great, strong and stretchy material. So much better than the disposable over shoes, even has great grip on hard floors which I was a bit sceptical about when ordering. Great carry hook to store them in the van, easy to grab and stretch over your boots when entering a customers house. I mean as far as features go there isn't much more you can do with a pair of overshoes, that said these do exactly what they are designed to do. Bought on the offer through Tool Talk, bought 2 pairs one for myself one for if I have anybody working with me. So cheap compared to buying multiple packs of the disposable ones over time. Great product, great material, easy to use and cheap enough to purchase a few pairs of to keep in the van in case your first pair need washing or you have someone working with you. Customers have already commented on them a couple of times I've used them saying what a great idea they are and look so much better and more professional than the disposables. On a whole I'm very impressed so far.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by CLIFF Electrical23rd March 2021
Very strong construction of fabrics. Nice big tag on the back of the shoe to pull on over boots. Nice thick cushioned sole, does not leave tread marks on clients carpets. Price seems very reasonable for this product as long as they last a decent amount of time. Great product overall far better solution than throw away over shoes that just rip when wearing boots.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Atmos Electrical Services23rd March 2021
As a domestic electrician I am in and out of homes constantly. I would always take my boots off to walk around the house and then have to put them on again to go out to the van. The MukGuard not only gives a professional look but also saves time with not having to get boots back on. It's even possible to slip them on with one hand while carrying other stuff, I'd be lost without them now! The material makes it easy to slip on over the boot and the clip they come with is handy to make sure they don't get lost. Great value for money as it's construction feels like it's going to last and best of all it saves time. Customers often comment on them saying what a good idea they are and when quoting for a job it leaves a great impression showing you care about keeping their home clean and tidy.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Fitzgerald Electrical & Plumbing Solutions23rd March 2021
Been using them for a week or so and found them to be well made. Easy to put on and take off, the loop at the back makes it easier to pull on and handy for hanging up in the van. I got them at a reduced cost through Tool Talk and thought this was a good price and value for money but I don't think I would have purchased them at the full cost. My customers were well impressed with me wearing them and it makes me look professional going into their homes. I would recommend going up a size as some work boots can be big!
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Get Home Improvements23rd March 2021
Good material, strength and stretch ability, and build quality. Having used 'clown shoes' and plastic shoe covers, these are easier and reusable as they are washable. I bought them through the Tool Talk deal which was a great price. I would advise anyone who goes into clean environments or customers houses to buy them. Saves any grief and dirty marks.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by A L Plumbing & Heating23rd March 2021
Well I must say these are a great fit to my boots, strong and sturdy with good quality material, hope they last a long time. Strong pull loop on the back to make fitting nice and simple. They have a grip on the bottom so you're not slipping. If they last as long as they look like they will then the price is very good, time will tell!
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Jordy's Plumbing-Heating & Property Services22nd March 2021
Very very well made, tough but flexible and feel very strong. Easy to put on, handy clip to attach to your belt loops so easy to carry with you. Impressed with them as a whole and not too expensive considering they are washable, and feel and look like they will last. Best ones I've found and tried, will see how they do in the wash and when I use them more but they look and feel very well made.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by I LOVE BATHROOMS22nd March 2021
I absolutely love these Mukguards. I had a pair before which had gone missing so couldn't pass up the opportunity to grab 2 at such a low price. Strong and versatile and easy to carry. Perfect when entering properties where people want you to take your shoes off which for me is 80% of the time. Easy to slip on and off, nice clip to carry around lightweight and washable, what's not to love about them. At standard retail I do think they are slightly overpriced but as I got them through a Tool Talk shop deal they were perfect.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by J.C.O Plumbing and Gas22nd March 2021
They seem like they are very well made, only used them a couple of times so far but I'm impressed. I was very surprised how easy they are to put on and remove. There aren't too many features for this product but the hook comes in handy to hang them in the van. For what they cost they are definitely worth having in the van and saves you taking shoes on and off in people's houses.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Udell Electrical Services Ltd22nd March 2021
They seem really well made and the material is flexible which means they suit all types of boots and shoes. They slip over in seconds and fit snug enough to stay on and not come off accidentally. They come with a carabiner to clip them onto your work trousers when not in use so you always have them with you. They are expensive and could maybe be available in different colours but they make you look professional and keeps my customers carpets clean.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by E Towler All Trades22nd March 2021
Love them, they're great for not having to take off my boots and make it more professional than the cheap over shoe protector. They're comfortable and fit around the boots I wear no problem. They're great, value for money and just slip on and off, easy as that.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by NE Heating & Plumbing18th March 2021
Good product, well made overshoe which seems to be made of hard wearing materials. Easy to just slip on as you enter a customer’s property. Much better than the disposable plastic overshoes.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by JRS Plumb And Heat12th March 2021
Perfect for protecting the customers floors. Always seem to get complimented about how good they are.
Much better than the plastic ones which can be very slippy on carpets, which is why these are better as the have rubber underneath to add grip.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Plumbing heating Drainage services6th March 2021
I brought a pair of these couple of weeks ago and they are amazing I have just got delivery of 2 more pairs in the offer and will now only use these from now on
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Salop Gas Heating And Plumbing6th February 2021
These are brilliant get the bigger size for work boots easy to clean in the washing machine and the customers love it when you take the time to wear them
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Aquaflow Energy ltd5th February 2021
These are perfect for leaving in the service bag. Pop them on at the door after ringing the doorbell and customer always appreciative of the attention to detail.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by M. Cox Electrical3rd February 2020
A handy bit of bit to keep in the van, useful when you have muddy boots or have stood in dog sh*t and not wanting to walk it around someones house.
Mine are still going strong and I wear them most days and also have lasted a coupe of trips in the washing machine.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Rapidz services8th February 2019
Bought these from Amazon
Good quality easy to use and clean.
Slightly expensive but i guess you pay for a good quality item.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Marc Whitley Painting & Decorating Services8th February 2019
These are incredibly handy to keep in the van, Especially if I’m quoting on my way home. They seem quite expensive but when you realise how long they will last against the dreaded disposable ones it’s worth the extra. I find they fit perfectly and give a good impression on potential customers. Since using them every customer has mention how more professional they are/look against the disposable versions. Would highly recommend.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Bitz 'n' PC'z Ltd14th February 2018
Quite expensive for what they are, but they do the job perfectly. I don't like using the disposable ones as they're not environmentally friendly and these solve that issue. Great for wet environments, but I wouldn't use on muddy boots.
Review for V12 Footwear MukGuard by Heather Contracts Limited30th December 2017
I purchased these from Toolstation for £20. I really like the idea of them. I wear Scruff boots size 10. I order the size 9-10 cover for this reason. When I went to use them on a dirty boot they wear to small. Unfortunatley, cause they got dirty I was unable to return them. Not impressed!

Hi guys. I've been sent these by Tool Talk, the V12, MukGuard over shoes. You can see.
So I instal air conditioning and I'd probably say 80% of my work is in houses. So normally we'd probably take off our shoes or wear the cheap plastic over ones, but these, far better quality and you get nice little hook with them. Pretty stretchy and they're sort of like the same sort of material that you get from sort of wetsuits. So they do stretch quite a bit and you can quite easily slip them on and off over your boots. And also they are washable. So I've been using these probably for a couple of days now, and they haven't really got much wear to them and they are far better quality, I would say, compared to your typical plastic ones. As I said, it is quite nice that you get a little hook with them. So, I would probably typically have them just hooked on to my tool bag. So I like that, so that I can just have them on and off from working in the house. Size wise they are pretty good. They're typically just your standard size. I think that they make the extra judgement on that.
It does say reusable, washable, and excellent grip and abrasive resistance. So if you are sort of in a house that the flooring hasn't been done yet, and you can't wear your boots, these would still be able to be perfect to use. As I said, that the stitching on them is really good. They are quite robust. And to be honest, for the money that they are considering they are reusable, they probably would be a pretty good solution for guys that are doing maintenance calls and service work, where you're constantly in different people's houses. But I would highly recommend these, as opposed to just disposable ones.
I'm not sure what other colours they come in, if you can get different ones, but these ones are sort of in like a grey blue colour. And to be honest, they're pretty nice. I mean, I said, branding on them quite discreet. It's quite subtle, but overall I'd highly recommend these for you guys that are going in and out different sort of buildings, different properties, property maintenance, etc. As I said, most of my work is domestic. So having these is perfect because I don't have to take my boots off. I mean, undoing your laces redoing them again, it does take quite a lot of time and it can be a bit awkward when you're speaking to customers and taken off your boots. So if you've got these ready, you can just slip them on and off as you're going in and out. They're pretty perfect for that. So overall, I'd highly recommend these for, as said for most people doing that sort of work, they are pretty robust, but yeah, I highly recommend these for anyone. So they are the Muk Guard V12's. Cheers to that Tool Talk.
Hi guys. My name is Lee, from Uplands Plumbing and Heating, in Swansea. I just want to give you a quick review on a pair of MukGuard overshoe boots, that I was kindly sent a few days ago. So straight to it. The product itself, when it arrived, comes in a little presentation box, as you can see, with a bit of brief instructions on the back, and then pulling it out is simply...
You can see on first inspection, you get a little D clip, metal D clip, which personally I think is a good idea, so you can hook them up somewhere in the van, easy to find, not going to lose them, are you. The product itself seems to be made of a neoprene material. Very similar to like a wetsuit. Got a bit of give, which is good. The stitching, where it's put together, looks sturdy. Again, looks like it's not going to come apart too easy, which is a good thing. Quite deep foot, which is also good for the steel toe caps, which most of us guys wear nowadays.
On the bottom, it's a bit of logo, which I presume also doubles up as an anti-slip feature, stop you're slipping on tiles, wood surfaces, and so forth, when you're on customer's property.
This then brings me on to the negative, unfortunately, and that is that they just don't fit. Well, not these anyway. When I put the order in, it asks you for your shoe size, so I give them my shoe boot size, size 10. Size 9/10, was the one for the dropdown. Select that. I say, when they arrived, tried them on and they just didn't fit, which is obviously a bit disappointing, and obviously a major negative. So I did sort of expect maybe wrongly, that the company would have taken the fact that we're wearing boots, into consideration when making them, but I suppose on reflection, you probably need to look at maybe going up a size. So again, if you're a size 10, you're probably going to have to jump up to 11 or 12. I think if you're probably a size nine, you'd probably get away with them. No problem. But definitely for size 10 guys, if you're wearing boots, like I am, you've got scruffs, then they just don't fit. So, unfortunately, I can't give you what they're like to wear.
I shall be returning mine. See if I can get another size, and then possibly maybe give you a further update. Well, sorry it's a bit short and sweet, but hopefully if nothing else, you've taken on board, the fact that you maybe need to consider going up a size when ordering. Okay. All right. Cheers guys, all the best.
Hi, it's Gareth from Udell Electrical Services here. Just doing a quick review on the MukGuards, a real cool product that we've brought over the last couple of weeks and been trying out. They're basically a neoprene safety cover shoe. We used to use the blue plastic covers but generally find that on the big boots, I wear these safety boots, they don't fit. But this product seems to fit them real good, real nice. Comes a cool handy clip that you can clip to your trousers and walk about with them. And then when you need them, literally take them off, slip them over your boots. Just like that. They fit real easily. And then that means that I can walk around on customer's carpets without worrying I'll get mud everywhere. So definitely a product worth buying.
Hi guys, Steve here, or Spud the Sparky. Been asked by Expert Trades as part of the Tool Talk reviews to review these MukGuard shoe covers, which are reusable, washable shoe covers. They seem a very useful tool if you're working in the customer's garden, you then have to go into the house and they've got cream carpets. You didn't want to go get any mud or whatever on to their carpets. You put these over your boots, and then walk into the customers property without fear of getting mud on their nice new carpets. So Expert Trades sent me this set, however, even though they're for my shoe size, they don't actually fit my shoe. So my, my everyday boots. So, trying to get them on, it's a very tight fit. So, I tried my boots instead, very tight fit again, but then you try my every day shoe, goes on fairly easily.
It's like they haven't been designed properly for either trainer-style boots, or walking boots style steel-toed boots. So I thought Expert Trades have sent me these that are a little bit too small, so I went and bought the next size up thinking that they'll definitely fit, but then I try to put them on to the trainer-style boots again, they do fit, but they're still not quite right. So, we try the boots again, and they just about go over but, but still not quite a perfect fit. So, basically the depth of your boot or trainer-style boot is too much for the MukGuard to handle, but then you get a regular size trainer, that fits in there perfectly which I think is a design flaw.
I really like the idea, but they need to try and work out how to make this fit like these, or these. So yeah, I have been Steve or Spud the Sparky, and these are the MukGuard reusable shoe covers from a company called V12. Thanks for watching.
Now then, people it's Macauley for SmartPipe Plumbing Services. I hope you're all doing well.
How many times have you been from one job to another job with mucky boots and the customer asking you to take them off when you get there? Due to health and safety reasons, you shouldn't be taking your shoes off or your boots off at a job. These are the perfect solution to that. No more having to buy disposable overshoes. These are reusable and washable and will protect the customer's carpet and yourself as they are slip resistant.
Tool Talk TV and Expert Trades sent me to them out to give a little review on them. In my opinion, very good. Strong build, very well stitched together and they are stretchy material. Haven't had the chance to use them in a property yet, but I've used around my house and I highly recommend. They come with a little clip, which you can clip onto your toolbox, or you can also clip it onto somewhere in the van so they easily accessible. So, yeah, I wouldn't change much about them. In fact, I wouldn't change anything about them. They are high quality and I highly recommend them. So go check them out. It is V12 Footwear MukGuard.
Hi, my name is Lee Kennedy and I run a property maintenance company. I've been asked by Tool Talk to review these overshoes from V12 Footwear. As you can see, they come with a handy carabiner so you don't lose them. The overshoes are quite tough waterproof neoprene with a nice grippy logo underneath. They have a nice finger hold about to make it easy to put on even if you're wearing gloves... And enter your customer's home.
Review of the V12 Mukguard. As you can see here, they come with a carabiner; easy to hook onto your bag or onto yourself. Perfect for when you want to be doing a work inside a property and you don't want to take your boots off. Now, to see how easy they are to put on, carabiner comes off nice and easy. Now, as you can see, nice and open at the front. They should slide on nice and easy.
They've got a nice grip on the bottom. So even though it is all their writing, this actually does add to the grip. They're, size-wise, really, really good. Now, this is a 9/10 and I don't know if you can see I am currently wearing Doc Martins, which are normally quite wide-footed. But as you're seeing, these slide on really easy. If I try and move around, really secure. Not going to come off unless you take them off.
But again, so much easier and better than one-time disposable overshoes. It's because not only are they stronger and won't break, also lot less to have to worry about keeping in the van. Don't have to keep a box of overshoes; just keep these and that's it. They're also machine washable, so you get them dirty after a day, doesn't matter, just bung them in the wash.
Taking them off is really easy. V12 are really good brand. They do some really good steel toes as well. Only thing I find about their steel toes, a little bit heavy. But, these overshoes, perfect. Absolutely amazing. There is nothing like it on the market. So easy, so quick, durable. Perfect.
Hello, everyone. Woody from iGas Heating, here to do a Tool Talk review on behalf of Expert Trades and Tool Talk TV. Today, I'm going to be reviewing the MukGuard shoe protectors.
First impressions, they feel a bit like same material as like a wetsuit. Yeah, quite a nice feel. Like the colour. What would you call that? Nice charcoal grey, something like that. But yeah, they come with this little hook. If you know what you'd have on like a climbing harness. I'd imagine you can just clip them into your trousers, your belt, tool belt, things like that. It's quite a handy little thing to have. I didn't even know they come with that. It's a nice little touch.
First main positive for me is... I don't know if you can see, but it's got quite a long hole in them, quite a wide hole. I mean, I've only got small feet, but the ideal bit about it is when you just put it on the customer's floor as you come in, slide your foot in nice and easy. Because one thing I can imagine, one thing I hate is say you're going to do a quote, you've got to take your shoes off, I don't like having to bend down and do me laces and things like that because it's more strain on your back as you get older, it's not easy, is it?
But with this, you just drop them on the floor, slide your foot straight in. They've got some material in the bottom, which is quite grippy. So I imagine it's good for the... You know you're not going to get too slippy and things like that. But yeah, that's pretty much it to be honest, good product, something, we do need.
I hate them blue overshoes, you know what ones I'm on about. You wear them for five minutes and they got holes in and you just... To be honest, I don't think they're very nice looking. I like things to look nice. Try and look smart as you can at work. And I think they just look a bit silly. But you shouldn't really take your shoes off because I've... Check your public liability insurance. If I take my shoes off in the customer's and hurt my foot, I'm not covered. So something to worth check, check your small print on your insurance, guys.
Yeah, get yourself some of these, MukGuards. They're really good. But yeah, that's me, Woody from iGas on behalf of Tool Talk TV and Expert Trades. Thanks for watching.
So then, quick review of these V12 MukGuard shoe cover things been sent, first impression's great really. Miles better than these overshoes which they're not bad, but one go and you're done really. This always rips and what is it? Like a tenner for, say, 100 goes of them and this is, look, it's about £20 and those will last forever really.
You can wash them, so fantastic if you're ever getting muddy. Won't get any mud in anyone's houses then. Use them for a week and then stick them in wash with your work clothes for that week. That comes with a carabiner so clip it onto your bag. I've got the Veto bag so it's fantastic for them. You can just clip it straight on. Yeah, great. Couldn't recommend them enough really.
Slight thing I've noticed is I've got the size 9/ 10 and they're a bit tight really. I think maybe go for size above, so you've got plenty of room. They did slip off once, that was a little bit annoying, but yeah, they fit. They're all right. They'll probably stretch out after a bit as well. Only had them for a week or two, so yeah, great. Can't recommend it enough, nice one.
Hi everyone. It's Shaun here from Gas Patrol, and today we're doing a review for Tool Talk on the V12 MukGuards.
They come with a loop here so you can just hang them from your jeans or your tool belt or whatever. Easy to carry, just take that away. Now they seem pretty good. Got a nice little loop on the back, easy for pulling them up onto your shoes. Most of all, customers absolutely love them. Let's try them out. This one, going to try it here on the boots. Now I've worn them just on trainers so far, but on boots as well which are a bit bigger, they work absolutely perfect. Press them over and pull them up at the back, nice and easy.
There we have it, V12 MukGuards. Definitely worth buying. Thanks guys.
Hi. I'm Terry Burgin of Terry Burgin Plumbing and Heating Engineer. I'm a member of Expert Trades, and today I'm doing a Tool Talk review.
Today, I'll be reviewing the MukGuard Overshoes. The reason I have these is I used to use the overshoes that you'd get out of a little box, and they were disposable ones. You can never take them off if you're going in and out, so you were constantly going through, if you were in and out of the house a lot, you're constantly going through a lot of overshoes. These, I think they're about £20. So you just take them off, take them on as you're in and out the house. Stop your mucky shoes getting over their house, and they're pretty good.
They're washable as well, so if they do get a bit dirty, chuck them in the wash at home and then out again nice and clean. I found these in Toolstation of all places. They, I say, I think they're about £20. I've had them for about a year now, and they don't look, there's a couple of little frayed threads which you'd expect, they don't look like they've had a lot of wear and tear. They're quite hard wearing. I'd say I use them every day to go in people's houses and, say, if they just get a little bit dirty, chuck them in the wash. Lovely and clean again, good to go. I'm Terry Burgin, and I recommend the MukGuard overshoes.

Whats peoples experience with these going on top of wet boots. Disposable seem easier than having to dry these out all the time

Wet boots seem ok, they do slip but I have been using these for a few weeks now and they look
Far more professional than the blue plastic ones a few customers have commented when I have put them on. I haven’t worked on any muddy sites but they are very useful when I am doing inside and outside work in a customers house. They stop wet footprints being put onto customers nice carpets. If I had extremely muddy boots I would be inclined to take my boots off in the house rather than risk dropping mud on customers carpets

Hello, thanks for your question.
With the disposable overshoes, we have found that these are likely to rip when wet, leaving footprints in the customer's house or property. Whereas the MukGuard is built for durability, strength and grip, so you are less likely to leave wet footprints in the customer's property.
The MukGuard is a washable product as it is re-usable and sustainable, so we would recommend washing them after a couple of uses generally.
Hope this helps, Jemima.
