Keep your Sidi shoes clean without hiding them with these novel and unique overshoes

You see some crazy new products at Eurobike, but without doubt, taking the prize if there was one, the most bonkers thing we saw were these ‘vanity overshoes’ from Sidi. VecchioJo talks us through them in this video.

They’re essentially thin Lycra overshoes that will protect your expensive shoes from getting dirty. To ensure everyone knows you’re still wearing expensive Sid’s though, they’re printed to look like a pair of top-end Wire shoes. So if you’ve just splashed out “six months rent” on a pair of Sidi shoes, as VecchioJo says, and want to keep them clean, these overshoes let you keep them covered, while still showing the world you’ve got a pair of flashy Italian shoes.

Or, as VecchioJo points out, you could wear them over your other brand shoes and fool people into thinking you’ve just splashed out on a pair of Sidi shoes. But that would be a bit silly wouldn’t it. Whoever said cyclists were a vain bunch.

They're available in several colours, no UK price has been announced yet, nor indeed availability

He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds.

Alternatively, you put them over your cheap shoes to make it look as though you are wearing expensive Sidi  16

Overshoes should be black.

I like when the weather turns cold, and finally i can blank out all the branding with a good pair of black overshoes. Well, except for the "Pro" logo on the overshoes themselves, of course.

And no-one can tell if i'm being tough and wearing my usual shoes, or feeling chilly and wearing the winter AM50s!

That's what people will think you've done even if you are wearing Sidis!

I love the look of Sidi's, but they don't suit my feet so no point in me buying them. Maybe I should buy these?!

Hilarious!!! Road.cc has it right when they say cyclists aren't the least bit vain  21 I really wonder how many people might get these to wear over their much cheaper (but in fairness still damn expensive) cycling shoes

What do you wear over your vanity overshoes to keep them clean and dry and protect them from damage?

Sidi's brand manager really needs a sit down and a good slap. WHERE DID IT ALL GO WRONG?
