    Warm shoe covers/booties

    Guys,

    I'm stuck trying to get the warmest shoecovers/booties.

    I've seen the Mavic Inferno.....Exustar with 5 mm neoprene.....Enduras ......PI....Performance etc.

    Is there any shoecover that really keeps your feet warm on 2 - 3 hour road rides, and is durable?

    Any product reviews for something that REALLY works?

    Thanks,

    David

    have you considered wearing a larger shoe so you can wear a thicker sock that would keep your feet and ankles warm?

    cold feet is mainly a blood circulation problem. Either poor blood circulation or your blood is getting cooled before they can get to the feet. Keeping your ankles warm and having a shoe that doesn't fit snugly is the key to keeping feet warm. That is aside from having a bootie that will block out wind.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I've used the Performance ones for about 15 years now. I used one set for about 13 of those 15 in temperatures down to the low teens. They are durable.

    If you're into 3 hour winter rides, you should consider the larger shoes or boots, wool socks and chemical warmers.

    Between your liner sock and your insulating sock, slip on two plastic shopping bags. Thicker bags work better.

    If you aren't into rocking trash bags, they also make $30 "vapor barrier socks" that do the same thing, with slightly more style points.
