4.0 out of 5 stars I would be happy to recommend 12 Nov 2013
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:X-Large|Verified Purchase
It works better than I thought since it was on the cheaper side. I have a mesh mountain bike type shoe but this covered it well enough to actually have a dry shoe when I got to work so when cycling home I didn't have to put on wet shoes. VICTORY!!

Someone said in their review they were quite tight and I got an XL for a size 10.5 shoe. It fits well but it was a little wiggly to get the front bit on but now I leave it on and only unclip the back when taking my shoes off and putting on.

It works well

4.0 out of 5 stars Bike Shoe Covers mainly for Road Shoes 30 Jun 2013
By James Kress - Published on
Colour Name:Yellow| Size Name:XX-Large|Verified Purchase
I purchased these for use on my mountain bike bike shoes. I prefer these shoes for both my commuting and mountain biking needs since they are nicer to wear around after the ride when needed. That aid, I was hoping that these covers would suit my needs, after the initially too small of a size, they do.

My main frustration with this product is that the sizes do not seem to be listed. They are listed as small, medium, etc., this doesn't work for me. So I took a chance and ordered the X-Large ones hoping that they would not be too big/small, they ended up being way too small. When I got them there are shoe sizes listed in each one, a feature that would be great on the sellers site. To give you an idea, the size that I ended up with after returning the too small version as the XX-L version. Here is a size chart I ended up finding on the product:

Shoe Size 7 7-8.5 8.5-10 10-13 13-15
Shoe Size(Eur) 0"-39" 39.5"-42" 42.5"-44" 44.5"-46" 46.5"-49"

If you plan to use these covers on pure road bike shoes the sizing chart should be right on for you. I you want to use them on a pair of mountain bike shoes, I would recommend the next size up. I wear 11's, and the XL was way too small for them.

Apart from the sizing issues, this product is very easy to put on and use, and works as you would expect. It blocks the wind, and most of the water, just not the water from a torrential downpour, which I did not expect it to do anyways.

Great product once you get fitted!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Waterproof, water resistant 21 Nov 2012
By Dissatisfied - Published on
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:XX-Large|Verified Purchase
If something is labelled waterproof and breathable, chances are that it is not waterproof. That is definitely the case with these shoe covers.

When it is sprinkling or you are riding through light puddles these are a significant improvement over nothing, especially with mesh topped shoes. But if you plan on riding a decent distance (5+ miles) in anything more than a mist, your feet will get wet.

I had high hopes for these shoe covers and I rode 8 miles in a steady light rain. By the time I got home both of my socks were soaked as well as the underside of the covers that was in contact with the top of my shoe, so I am convinced that the material is easily water permeable and the water did not ingress from beneath.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Warmth & Wet! 15 Feb 2013
By Bill T Brown - Published on
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:Large|Verified Purchase
I've been using these for my daily road commute and occasional longer rides for about two months - December to February. Winter here on Vancouver Island means rain, lots of it, so "waterproof" has to mean WATERPROOF to work in this climate. I would give these about a 90% effectiveness rating in the waterproof category. My shoes are an open mesh style, and I have never had wet socks with these booties, even riding through deep, large puddles on pavement. The only wetness is on the outer shoe soles, which are quite open on these shoe covers, and considerable condensation-type moisture on the inner fabric sometimes when it is warmer.

A caution, and the only weakness in this shoe cover - if your shoe is a little wider or bulkier, the sides of the shoe cover may not fit right to the sole. The opening on the bottom is too large and would be better with more of a full sole.

As far as quality, excellent. I had a pair of Castelli's disintegrate within two months, and these are holding up very well, except for a small hole that I have worn through in the kevlar toe pad, from putting my foot down at red lights.

Excellent product - recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars water proof not warm 13 Feb 2012
By lynne - Published on
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:X-Large|Verified Purchase
These boot covers are water proof, but thay are not very warm. In addition, the sizing is smaller than expected. I wear a 9 1/2 shoe and ordered an XL. It just fits. Good product, just hoped for a little more heat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as 3 Mar 2013
By David F. Williams - Published on
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:Large|Verified Purchase
Tulsa Oklahoma--Wear these down to 30F with winds at 10 to 15 mph, humidty often 40 to 60%. Great for commuting in the morning in these conditions (about 15 miles) and fold up nicely in my bag for the return trip when temps over 40F. If needed they can even go in a jersey pocket if it gets too warm on your ride.

With thick sox these are good for an hour down to 20F, with thin socks up to 45F.

Turn them inside out and they dry very quickly. I wear a 9.5/ 44 shoe (mountain, road) and the XL fits just right.

Have had them about 10 days, they appear to be well constructed of quality materials as is typical of Pearl Izumi.

FWIW, I have quite a bit of experience in commuting year round so am pretty good at dressing properly in cool weather, I tend to dress a bit lighter than most of my riding partners. Below 20F I wear neoprene, above 40F shoes with thick socks, above 50F regular socks.
