Lovely Shoe Covers, Work Great....for One Season Only?

So I've gone through two sets of shoe covers before, I don't really use them that often since I was living in Los Angeles and the weather is temperate, but for the possible five or six times I did use them, they were great!

I'm a size 10.5/11 and went with the XL size. They fit great, a little snug to get on, but once they're on they lock out the cold. Didn't get numb toes one bit.

What sucks: Zipper ripped at the seams, bottom heel area began to tear at the seams and I started to think perhaps I should've gone with the XXL.

Anyhow, they lasted longer than the Primal shoe covers I had which only made it one ride.

Seems like the shoecover product is still something that needs to be defined/reinvented since so many of these fall apart. Maybe I'll just borrow my mom's sewing machine and fix them since I doubt these have any warranty on them anymore.
