Wrapped the kids' stuff... now for dad!!
The Sidi Toasters... hmm. Well, NY hasn't seen the winter extremes of the NW or of my old home, Denver, but I put the insoles in for the last couple days and I have to say that the heat is just good enough for my feet not to get cold. But that is not a fair statement given the mild temps of the last few days that I've had them. I was out just past sunset for the last two days and the temps never got below 40F, nor was I wearing booties. Nevertheless, I felt the heat from each side in a manner that did not make me warm and certainly not too hot. But at dusk for the last two nights, I was getting chilly and the insoles bumped up the comfort level in a way that was not a stark difference from just sitting in my car (does that even make sense?).
Aside from the heat, my left foot was pressed to accomodate the higher midsole, but that's just me and my flat foot). All things considered, I think that these will make a big difference in my night rides for the next few months.
Merry Christmas and good health to all!!
