For $75 you might have a tough time with winter shoes, but that's more than enough for a pair of polypro sock liners, a good pair of lightweight wool socks, and some nice shoe covers. I'm partial to the Gore Bike Wear covers, Pearl Izumi makes a really awesome neon yellow insulated pair. I looked at a pair of Garneau insulated covers, but there were no zips or velcro on the cover, just on the stirrup bottom (which was the only base to them, so I doubt their actual insulating properties.) I guess you put these on like an open bottom sock, then your shoes, then slip the toe-cover portion around the shoe and fasten the stirrup. Weird.
