History: I've been riding 365 for over 20 years, but as I get older my feet just seem to like riding in the winter less and less. I've done galoshes over my shoes, booties currently, but I want to get the real deal winter riding SPD compatible shoe/boot. I'm not really into winter boots and flat pedals. If I go out for over an hour I'm frozen. I'd love to be able to head out to an ice race and spend time on the ice, MTBing in the snow etc. Commuting isn't the issue but the fun rides are too short.
I've been looking into Lakes, Gaerne (polars and Eskimos) and Northwaves (Celsius and Fahrenheit)...someone said SIDI this morning.
I'd love to hear about ANY opinions on these. I've been told some interesting sizing stories, and some extra coatings to keep them waterproof. I think I'm leaning towards the Eskimos, but we'll see. Keep in mind this is Canada and I'll go out in -15C and colder. Thanks for any and all
