Keeps your feet warm and toasty!

As read from Road Bike Rider weekly newsletter, "they perform better in cold and wet conditions and do it for a reasonable price." Most all neoprene shoe covers will eventually let moisture seep in, whether it is at the cuff or at the cleat opening, but a great bootie will still keep your feet warm, even down to the teens. This is a great bootie.

Good for frigid weather

I use toe covers down to 25-30F but if it is colder and I have to ride longer I switch to the full cover. I was able to ride around 3 hrs in 15-17F weather in this. My toes still got cold but not numb or painful. This is a good deep winter cover.

Beware of fit. Sizes run very small.

I didn't have a chance to try these yet since the Large doesn't even come close to fitting a size 10 Sidi winter boot. Judging from the material, it is rather thin for a barrier cover that should keep toes warm. We'll see after I pay to return them.

Works Well

I bought the white (because it was $20 less than the black), and although it is a huge fashion no-no to wear white before Memorial Day, I wear these in the winter. So far, so good, haven't had a really cold ride (below 30F) with them but they seem to do the job as well as any other neoprene booties. I like the tougher soles and toes, these always got torn up on other ones, additionally the velcro closure in back is a whole lot easier than a crank-scratching zipper.

Great reflective tape usage, these are super visable which is important on a rotating part of the bike to get the sleepy drivers attention.

Only negative (which doesn't matter to me for commutingtraining) is that they are not very aerodynamically smooth in the back, especially around the velcro closure area. Again, it is probably a watt or two which doesn't matter to me but if you are looking for a shoe-cover for a TT or racing you may want something different.

Overall, five stars, and BTD is the best online bike store there is. Don't be afraid to buy the white. After a couple rides in the rain and mud they'll be black anyway!

Great Shoe Cover

Provides great protection and warmth for days less than 40 degrees. Easy to slip on. Should have bought sooner instead of wearing multiple socks and plastic bags.

Cold and Wet

I expected something warm and dry for our Seattle weather, but I return from my 2-3 hour rides with cold, very wet feet. With the name Barrier, I was surprised by the results. Now, if it is not raining, these are very nice, but add a little wet stuff and my feet go south very quickly.

Way too small

My shoes are 41 EU8.5 US and the medium size shoe covers are not large enough to wrap around the back of my foot. On the plus side they seem to be made pretty well - I just can't use them. I'll sell them cheap to somebody with a really small shoe size.
