    What are some good shoes and gloves for rainy commutes?

    What are some good shoes and gloves for rainy commutes?

    Yeasterday was my first rainy commute. It was great, but I realized one thing, I need water proof gloves and shoes. I have a jacket and rain pants so my body was dry, but it's still terrible to have a wet and cold hands and feet. My requirements for the gloves are simple, waterproof and comfortable. My requirements for the shoes is that they be completly waterproof, and high because I need to unclip in some pretty deep puddles at intersections. Deep puddles also make shoe covers out of the question. Do they have bicycling boots compatible with spd cleats, because that would be ideal.

    Also, I'm a poor student, so the less expensive the option the better.

    Thank you for you help.

    Check out Diadora or Northface shoes. Both carry very good waterproofs. Some waterproofs breath and others don't so choose carefully for your climate conditions.

    Timberland hiking boots (they have great tread) with platform pedals, if you're so inclined.

    I'm in the celtic folk fusion band Baroque and Hungry. "Mended", our new full-length studio album, is now available for download.

    Well, I have some good Goretex boots that are very water proof, but I want some that I can attach some SPD cleats to.

    Thank you all for your advice.
