During the summer spring and fall, I run toe clips. With winter coming I'm looking to put on my insulated boots. Are there toe clips made to fit boots?
I read about Powergrips which are straps for your pedal and claim to fit boots, but I'm unfamiliar with them and they are relatively pricey.
Any help would be appreciated.
I haven't seen toe clips that large, and I've been looking too. I think I might just make these to fit. http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2009/08/make-it-velcro-speed-straps-for-fixed-gear-riders/
I spent $12 making my own powergrips. I learned how on pg 14 on "Post your winter bike pics". I can wear any size boot that I want with these.

Here is a picture with the NEOS Explorers I use when things get 'damn' cold.

For an expensive version of a a half clip, you can now get Bruce Gordon's half clips in boot size. I use the normal version with White Industries pedals and they are best pedal and clips I have ever used. So much so I just bought a second pair for my second commuter bike.
