Functional but fragile

I am currently on my second pair of these booties. They are the best ones I have found for dry, cold conditions. They are not waterproof. They go on and off fairly easily, but the bottoms connecting the openings between the cleat and heel is made of a pretty flimsy material which tends to get tears in it. I used my first pair for an entire fall, winter, spring cycle on the dry days. Howver when I tried to put them on at the beginning of October this year the zipper on the right bootie separated. I felt that they were good enough to purchase them again for this year, hoping that they had improved the undersides. They didn't and by the second day I wore them they had once again developed tears. I suppose I could have returned them, but there really isn't a viable alternative that I have found, and so long as the zipper holds up they are fully functional. I ride every day, usually for 2.5 to 3 hours, so I have gotten a lot of use out of the booties. They aren't cheap, but until I find something better I will continue to use them and replace them with new ones whenever the old ones give up the ghost.

Warm, but tearing up easily
by misterbentley

Well, they're Gore Windstopper, so pretty good in cold climates, especially with some Little Hotties when it's reallyyyy blustery. But, I've simply started to tear them up taking them onoff and with minimal walking (and I got proper size based on my road shoe size). While it's nothing too drastic, they started getting holestears poked in them pretty much on day one of use this season (my first pair of them ever). This is disappointing given the price point. I did get a mild sale on them, and I see they're even more on sale now, but, I'd still ideally pay about 60% max of the MSRP on these. Guesstimating here, but in 1-2 seasons I could see myself going through a few pairs of these between decent roadgravel use, and at that point I'd just get winter riding shoes.

wamer than I expected

These are relatively light (in weight and thickness) covers but so far they have been good down to the upper 30 F range on road bike rides. I now expect them to work in the lower 30F range, and perhaps lower on slower gravel rides. I bought the 42-44EU size and they fit nicely on my 42.5 and 43 shoes. Durability is still hard to judge since I've had them only a few months. I am pleased with the product.
