At the time of writing this review, it would appear spring has sprung. Undoubtedly, by the time you read this, it'll be raining. Or worse, snowing. For sure, spring is on the way though and when it arrives, these new Prendas Ciclismo oversocks are going to make you stand out on the roads while keeping the spring chill, and road muck, off your shoes.
Defeet's Slipstreams are are a solid pair of oversocks (figuratively and literally) and you get to feel just like a seasoned pro of yesteryear by having to manually cut your cleat holes. Whether that's cool or not is a matter of taste.
DeFeet were one of the first to create specific oversocks. Frequently seen covering shoes in the pro peloton, Slipseams must be good – or is it just because money has changed hands?
These oversocks – call them Belgian booties, if you like – are about as simple as they get, adding shoe protection and a little warmth on those days when a full overshoe would be excessive.
