I would like to get something to help keep my feet warm. I have chronically cold feet, especially my toes, and I was wondering what your thoughts were on using shoe covers vs. toe covers.
fwiw, I went out on about a 45 minute ride the other day when it was about 50 to maybe 55 degrees. Most of the ride was in the shade and there was some wind. By the end of my ride my feet were quite cold. I was wearing my Specialized Taho MTB shoes and two pairs of socks (both were "high performance" light to medium weight hiking socks from REI).
Do the toe covers really work? If they do then I think I'd prefer going that route since it seems like they would be easier to take off and put on. Not to mention, they would be easier to pack away in my bag if not needed.
Also, I don't plan to ride in temps that are too severe, probably around the freezing point would be my limit.
These are the products that have caught my attention so far...
Nashbar Reveal Shoe Cover $19.99
Nashbar Toe Warmers $9.99
Prorace Neoprene Multifunction & Water Protect Overshoes $19.01
Last thing, if anyone has recommendations for sizing I would very much appreciate it. I wear a size 46 Specialized Taho MTB shoe.
