    I had a lovely ride out on Sunday, in the pouring rain. My winter boots (Shimano MW81's) are very good at keeping my feet warm, but judging by the amount of water I poured out of them at the end of the ride, they are not waterproof. My feet didn't get cold, so I'm not too bothered about that aspect, but th eboots have taken until today to dry out, a PITA when I want them for commuting duties.
    Can anyone recommend a decent set of waterproof overshoes please? Need to work with MTB (SPD) cleats.

    Did you stuff the shoes with paper and change it when damp?

    Overshoes can't be completely waterproof because of the holes needed for feet and cleats. If they were, water would enter at the ankle and eventually fill them anyway. They're much more use against wind and cold but you say you've no problems there.

    Sealskinz and Shimano ones both seem pretty good to me.
