If not boots (your reason wasn't given), then what about waterproof shoes? I have an older model of these currently available Shimano waterproof shoes and they're incredible, and I've ridden them in rain and snow and down to 5 F for 40 minute commutes, as well as on many wet and slushy winter centuries (just make sure your pant cuff goes over the top of the shoe cuff so the water doesn't run down the pants and under the shoe cuff and into the shoe. Pants with stirrups will help hold the pant cuff in place), with proper socks and a chemical warmer across the toes. Breathable Gore-Tex is one of my best friends, and almost all of my winter gear is made from it. Premium price? Yup, but worth it if you frequently ride in the elements.
