Overshoes

My Sidi overshoes are dying... very cold soggy shoes and toes on the ride home tonight have spurred me into action.... so which waterproof, warm, windproof overshoes do you recommend?

Ta in advance

… have always had a good rep for exactly those qualities.

the Luminite ones look interesting too

I have these (Campag Textran Rain) overshoes and are very nice. They don't make you look like you have club feet too much.

Complicating matters since 1965

Go for the Endura...cheap, keep your feet dry and the warmest i have tried. I bought Assos ones too and the Enduras keep my feet warmer and drier. The Assos look good but are expensive. I would rather ghave warm feet and an extra £20 in my pocket!!!

Whereas I have just emailed Endura today about my overshoes - the zip has gone on one of them after only a couple of months' use. Not very happy.

I'm currently using Sealskinz socks and my regular road shoes. Still get cold feet on long rides, though.

Next winter I shall be using merino socks and some of those nice winter specific Goretex Shimano shoes.

fantastic, cheap, warm - great stuff.

As for Endura zips - yes I've had a couple go, contacted Endura who replaced the whole garments. Also sent me free socks in lieu of postage. With customer service like that you can't grumble at all.

Endura customer services don't seem to want to contyact me, in spite of my trying to contact them.
