OK, so I've gone through all the various threads on the subject (booties and toe warmers get chewed up pretty quickly as you walk around; how plastic bags and space blankets have been used to trap heat; smart wool socks and poly liners; mountain biking boots; those warming pads; etc.) and still don't have a sense of how to keep the toes warm on a cold day. For me, the temps here in Washington DC have lately dipped to the upper 20s and low 30s in the mornings and evenings, and my commute is about 15 miles each way. I start to feel my toes tingle about half-way through that ride. Thus far, I've been using one pair of Smartwool socks and normal road shoes. So, yes, I know those shoes are really vented and the one pair of socks not the best single layer against my feet. But, I don't think I can squeeze anything else into my shoes - maybe a liner, but definitely not another winter wool sock. Booties or toe warmers? Do they really keep the toes warm or are they just meant to block out a little wind and keep your toes somewhat dry on a wet day? Any bottom line advice shy of getting bigger shoes, stuffing it with insulation, and getting neoprene all around my shoes?
