Which one; water proof shoes or shoe covers?
I am seeking advice from experienced riders that have used both waterproof shoes and water proof shoe covers; those covers that are mentioned here on these forums like the ones you buy from Burley Co. I am planning to ride for a couple of days through varied geography and I know that I will be passing through micro climates since this area up here is known for this. I will be riding either in December or after. I have read various threads about covers. But if I could only pick one, which would you suggest? If I choose shoes over covers, I dont plan to buy specific bicycle shoes but just hiking shoes that have gortex; not heavy duty or technical hiking shoes since I wont be hiking rugged terrain. I already have some hiking shoes that arent technical and work fine for what I plan to ride with. I thought of just getting those waterproof covers that I read about on these threads and putting them over the shoes but what do you suggest? I cant spend too much since I have spent on other clothing and bicycle items. Mark
