Haynes, Sparrell & Co.'s Shawmut Rubbers introduced their signature rubber overshoe in 1908, along with their slogan "Double the Wear Where the Wear Comes." Shawmut was also known for their extensive advertising in the New England region of the United States, where the product was often asked for by the slogan rather than by name.
