I went to REI today, to look at boots that the gang recommended. I'm still looking (got kicked out at closing time), but I did pick up these shoe covers for the time being: Sugoi Resister Bike Booties.
There were different kinds of shoe covers, but I liked these the best because they do not cover the bottom of my Timberland shoes:
* My MKS pedals have metal teeth that would probably saw-through anything that covers the bottom of the shoes that make contact with the pedal.
* My Timberland shoes have good tread that should give me a sure-foot in the snow, so I didn't want to cover the bottom of the shoes.
These will block the wind, but they will probably not be good for keeping snow off my socks if I ride through snow drifts.
I'll see if I can get some of the SealSkinz socks, to go with the shoe covers like stapfam suggests. And will keep looking for lightweight hiking boots.
