    Toe covers for 47cm shoe?

    I am still getting cold toes during my early morning saturday rides (typically 35-45 degree starts). i switched to wool socks and the shoes do not allow two pairs of socks.

    So, my basic question is for my size shoe, what toe covers are the fellow sasquatches using out there?

    Below is a pic of my beautiful shoes just for fun.

    I use Pearl Izumi toe covers, but then go to full shoe covers when it's really cold. For 35-45, Calientoes + wool socks do me fine

    I wear these over my Shimano mtn bike shoes (also 47's) they have plenty of stretch and stay in place very well. These plus wool socks have kept me comfortable down into the low 20's.

    I actually have a nice set of Trek full shoe covers in size 47-48 that I will sell you at a very good price if interested. I bought them hoping I could squeeze my 49s into them but they won't quite fit. PM me if interested.

    I use the PI down to high 30s. They help, but if it gets colder then that I need shoe covers.

    I used toe covers last year, they kept falling off when walking around. Full shoe covers are not much more expensive, don't fall off and if you buy them large enough they allow you to add some closed cell foam insulation pads for extra warmth.
