Have anyone ever use one of this? Care to share the pros and cons of this item?
Considering to buy one of these.

I have ever heard user complaining that the sock will turn out of place after you change gears? Is that true?

Would be interested in your review. Always commute on the scooter in part because of dress shoes and shifting.

Shifter sock does NOT move. It is an inexpensive molded piece of rubber. It does protect your shoes.

I had one for the last couple of years they work very well,I now when I ride my bike to work don't have to have my dress shoes in the trunk which makes it smell alot better,for the price they are worth it.

I put one on a few months back and except for looking a bit dorky, I am very satisfied with it. It did rotate just a bit, but not so much it causes problems and the shifting works fine just like it always did. Having small feet and shifting mostly with my toes, I have found it cushions the shifter quite a bit and my boots seem to be cleaner. For the fleabay price of $5 including shipping, you really can't go wrong.

Since the ebay link is gone/not allowed, can one of you post a photo so we know what you are talking about?
Thanks.

As requested, one shifter sock picture. Sorry about the fuzziness, but you get the idea.
