Lots of padding, tight fit for the XL on my 47's (size 13), its at 32 now, been riding an hour, feet started feeling chilly, not at the fault of the covers, its the weep hole (that lets rain out of the shoe) on the bottom of the shoe that was letting cold air in, need to block that off. They do makes my shoes look more aero, stretching them over your shoes takes some getting used to, but good value.
My go to shoe covers! I have big feet and these go on easy with the Velcro closure. Nice and snug. Good down in the 20s with some wool socks. Original pair is still going strong minus the patch from the dog bite!
Not sure if I love the Velcro closures as opposed to the Zippers my old covers had. Seems it is impossible to get a right closure around the shoe. However, the Velcro seems heavy duty enough. Used the covers this past winter (albeit a mild one around here) they appeared to do the job & appear to have lasted for at least another season.
These have served me well for about 700 miles this winter. Only one small tear from pulling them on too hard in a hurry. Definitely worth the price. Kept me comfortable down to 19. If they closed with a zipper instead of Velcro, I would add a star.
I bundled up last week for a long ride in the warm Connecticut weather. Yes it was warm in CT in January 60 degrees in fact. Knowing the cold sneaks up here quickly, I set out in Gore-Tex, Mavic Thermals & my new shoe covers. Although it was warm, it was quite windy with bright skies & patches of cloudy rain. Nothing bothered me, I comfortably hammered out mile after mile with the perfect body temp. By the time I turned around to come home the 60 degree weather was GONE, as the temp quickly dropped I enjoyed the added layer on my feet which are usually freezing by the end of a Winter ride. So far so good I really like the Louis Garneau Shoe Covers.
I bought these in the beginning of November and they are falling apart after two months. The stitches on the seams are ripping apart. I don't I would buy them again.
The only good things about these covers are that they are pretty warm and also fairly comfortable. They're not quite waterproof but more or less are acting like a wet suite keeping your feet warm.
I tried them in the mid to upper 40s. My feet were comfortable. For mountain bike shoes, get a larger size. I had to use an older pair of shoes which are slightly smaller on the outside than my newer, usual shoes. However, great value and I love the Velcro closure, rather than a zipper.
