Cycling Overshoes - What To Wear When Riding Your Bike
When cycling in cold weather conditions, all your body's extremities are at risk of getting cold. Feet in particular tend to feel the chill more than most other parts, because, as you pedal, they're spinning around, which only increases the wind chill factor.
One of the best ways to keep your feet warm is to wear overshoes. Overshoes are booties that are made of Gore-Tex, neoprene or nylon, which are designed to be pulled on over shoes. Overshoes are firmly attached to your feet using velcro, and often have little reflective strips on the back, which is of course a helpful safety measure that increases your visibility. Furthermore, you won't lose any of your grip on the pedal, as they even have a cut-out window in the sole.
Besides keeping your feet warm when cycling, overshoes also will help keep your shoes dry - essential if you plan to walk around in your shoes all day! If you ride a road bike with no front mudguard, you've probably noticed water being dumped on top of your feet, so in the case you're sure to find overshoes especially helpful.
Overshoes are long-lasting (provided you remember to take them off as soon as you get off your bike), but some people just consider them to embarrassing to wear. If you don't want to wear overshoes, another alternative that you can look at is water-proof socks. Water-proof socks can do a great job of keeping your feet warm and dry, but you should be aware that they are thicker than normal socks, so you need to wear your largest shoes with them.
Here are some cycling overshoes:
