The best overshoes money can buy

PostedJanuary 26, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Expensive
I put off buying these due to the price tag and some bad reviews about the zips breaking, but now I wished I'd shelled out last winter because these overshoes work really well and are the only ones I have found that are up to the job of 4+ hour base rides in -4 to +4 degC temp range, which I often ride in during Korean winter months.
They fit fine (mine were the largest size ll over uk size 10 Bont Vapour shoes) and go on easy provided you pull over the toe, cleat and buckles of the shoe first before pulling over the heal.
They are made from a light weight technical fabric which means that your feet don't swet under 4mm thick rubber on the climbs then freeze on the decent like with other thermal overshoes.
A typical Assos product really - expensive but brilliant.

Watch your sizing

PostedFebruary 14, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: Expensive, sizing
This is by far the warmest show cover I have ever used. I used this below 0C and they did very well at keeping the wind off and holding in the heat.
This was despite the zipper giving way on one of the covers. My shoe size is 46 and it is at the top end of the II or large. The design is such that the zipper is put under too much stress with a size 46. I would recommend these for size 45 and under. If you can get them on your shoes, you will not be disappointed.
A velcro closure would compromise their water resistance, but would make things much easier. Amazing job out of these in cold weather.
