Commuting - Shoe covers for bulkier shoes?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I commute in SPD shoes that look more like normal shoes than my road cycling shoes (Pearl Izumi Bolders and Cannondale Clogs to be precise). Are there any water- and/or wind-covers for bulkier shoes like these? My AmFib booties are great on my road shoes, but no dice on the others.
The only thing I have found so far is Trek's Dirtwing Booties for $55.00. Can anyone point me toward some other options?
I bought a pair of these:
for my commute and rain weather rides and they are very good. They are not snug as say something that is meant to block the wind and should fit over any sneaker for your average foot size. They are tall enough so you can tuck them underneath your rain pants and they have a reflective strip vertically down the back of the overboot. They have a velcro closure and of course, open on the bottom for your cleats. The price at MEC is also canadian so it should be cheaper than $55, however MEC is a co-op so you either need to join (something like $5) or find a friend with a membership...
I haven't seen Serratus stuff sold in the US but maybe that has changed..
Very cool. I will check these out -- I think they're just what I'm looking for. Thanks!
