I'm comfortable with platform pedals and need a good winter boot (I live in arguably the coldest major city in Canada). As I have wide feet (and a Morton's Neuroma to make matters worse) a product available in a wide size is essential. Thanks

You can't beat Primaloft insulation. It has twice the R value of Thinsulate. I have a five-year-old pair of LL Bean Snow sneakers that have 200 grams of primaloft, and they keep my toes warm down to about 5f. Below that I use NEOS overshoes.

Thanks scoatw. What do you wear inside the NEOS? Which model of NEOS?
