totes


In 1923, the Solo Marx Company was founded in Oakley, Ohio, a small suburb of Cincinnati. The plant was moved to Loveland, Ohio in 1942 where the very first totes rubber rain boots were manufactured. These rubber rain boots, called "totes" to emphasize how portable and easy-to-carry they were, eventually became the company's most popular product. In 1961, Brad Phillips, a Chicago businessman, bought Solo Marx and changed the name to totes, Incorporated. In 1969 he obtained the first patent for a working folding umbrella. In 1970, totes introduced the very first folding umbrella in the United States and it quickly became a hit. In the 1970s, in addition to the folding rain umbrella, many products were introduced under the totes name, including totes rain scarves, rainwear, hats, expanding bags, and slipper socks. In the mid-1980's totes established offices in New York, Toronto, the United Kingdom and Asia. Today, totes is still one of the most recognized brand names for quality rainwear and weather protection accessories.

Great boots, comfy and warm
By Nicole, from Frederick, CO | February 28, 2014

These boots fit my daughter perfectly and have just the right amount of "girly" purple for my tomboy. They are comfy enough for her to wear often...lately on days it isn't even snowy!

Totes diamond snow boots
By A Jack, from Brooklyn, NY | February 05, 2014

I wear 8.5 shoes but I bought the 9. It is very comfy with socks. My main complaint is that it is barely water resistant. Twice after snowstorms when I wore these boots and stepped in puddles of slush or even stepping in snow, the moisture seeps right through and my socks get soaked

  • Shoe Size: Felt true to size
  • Shoe Width: Felt true to width
  • Wears this shoe: When it snows

Pretty Looking
By Liz Jo, from Chicago, IL | January 26, 2014

Did not keep my feet warm, even when I had 2 pair of socks on. I thought my feet were sweating but no, it's the material. Although I had another pair of Totes with a zip up front, same thing happened my feet would get wet. I even sprayed them( both pair) with the rain/stain guard which is suppose to protect shoes , it didn't help. Now I have to buy more boots!!!

  • Shoe Size: Felt true to size
  • Shoe Width: Felt true to width
  • Wears this shoe: Everyday
