Toe covers with SPD

Suggestions for toe covers that work well with SPD or other recessed cleats?

PIs work well IMHO at least with SPDs and Giro/Shiman/SIDI shoes I've tried

No problems with slipping forward and getting caught on pedal, or wearing from walking on gravel or mud?

I've only used the cheap ones that were sold by Nashbar and Performance. They are a consumable, the bottoms get chewed up fairly quickly. I generally enlarge the hole, makes it easier to clip in. I've never had any part of the cover get hung up on the pedal though I've wondered if that might happen.

I have a pair of Axiom ones that have worked well for me. No issues clipping in my SPD's.

Go full shoe cover instead.

Thanks for the suggestions. I found a pair from RockBros that stay on and stay well clear of the cleats.. I haven't tried aggressive dismounts and remounts yet, but with no CX racing tile next year, it's largely a moot point for now.

Also I have Axiom and it is enough for me. When I compare it on the net , it is one of the best choice

I haven't found any toe covers that work with large (size 13/49) MTB shoes. Showers Pass makes shoe covers that are large enough to work, though.
