Warm overshoes

I find wind stopper clothing to actually not perform as well as more breathable stuff. Probably it's to do with how much sweat is trapped and then cools next to your skin. If you were not being very active then I'm positive it would be great however. Also don't forget that if it is too tight then it wont trap as much warm air as if it is slightly baggy. Try losing a pair of socks and see if you feel any difference.

>Warm overshoes

I was thinking of this today then forgot about it once in the shower when the true pain of warm water on cold toes was EXCRUCIATING !

I am riding with 4 pairs of woollen socks and overshoes at the moment and my feet are still cold! The plastic bag thing works, but it's a pain getting them on under the overshoes and then cutting a hole so the cleats poke through.Surely there must be some waterproof, warm overshoes out there which are also walkable and available in larger sizes??????

I spied some thermal windproof motorbike socks my mum bought as a xmas present for my bro. so I won't know what brand they are till xmas, but they looked damn warm. when i do find out what they are i'll let you know (and probably get some for m yself)

I've just got some Endura ones through from Wiggle as I was sick of having cold feet.


The weather warmed up just as soon as I opened them but if it gets cold again I'll post back to how they perform ;)
 
a clubmate uses bubble wrap under the overshoes to trap a layer of air and swears it works.
he has a template to cut the bubble wrap to shape bfore use.
