After 4 years of riding with them I've finally worked out you can put them on before you put your shoes on, and then pull them down and over them. So much easier, no snagging on cleats and boas/ratchets.

 Have I been doing it wrong all along? Obviously only works with the the open-soled ones secured with velcro across the middle.

I'm with Mike. I've elastic laces on my winter shoes so the overshoes stay on all through winter and i just slide my foot in and fasten the shoe up the back.

 

I cant see how your method works ? You still have to pull the overshoes over ?

Socks on, overshoes on and rolled up my legs, shoes on, pull overshoes down over the shoes, just find it easier because I have chunky ratchets and velcro on my SPD shoes. 

Must admit never thought to just leaving them on my shoes but I might try that now I have shoes with speedlaces too. Won't work on my M088s because of the three velcro straps.

My overshoes revelation:  I stopped wasting money on them and got some winter boots instead.

I tried that but couldn't find any wide enough to take a winter sock. All the usual suspects tried and failed - Shimano MW, Northwave, Lake. I blame my hobbit feet.

I hear you kil0ran.. that moment you realise you've been doing it wrong for ages...   1  I've brought 'that type' of overshoe ever since I had the same 'awakening'.

 

@cougie - prepare to have your mind blown... https://youtu.be/aiPbsRKUCn8 

 

Thinking about getting some spatz this year, I've heard good things.

404 Not Found ?

All of my overshoes have either had zips or velcro up the back of them - I am intrigued by this whole other family of overshoes !
