When The Going Gets Tough
The Fizik X5 Terra Artica GTX is their off-road winter cycling shoe, insulated and equipped with a breathable, waterproof GORE-TEX membrane, it is a versatile shoe, reliable for all-terrain riding, gravel grinding, mountain biking and beyond.
No matter how harsh the climate and whatever adventure you have planned, this shoe is built to protect you from the most severe cold, wet weather
Inside the shoe, a soft, brushed-fleece lining increases both insulation and comfort, for an added cozy layer of defense against winter's worst elements, be that a ride in freezing rain or a full-on spin in the snow.
The advanced GORE-TEX Koala membrane technology is optimized for better breathability, which means that while wet weather conditions are stopped at the surface, moisture molecules from sweat vapor inside the shoe can easily escape through billions of tiny pores, for warmer, drier feet on cold, wet winter cycling adventures.
Outside, a high-density PU-laminated upper is the perfect match to the lightweight GORE-TEX membrane, combining resilience with streamlined warmth for a nimble shoe that retains a high level of durability. The addition of a Velcro strap secures the ankle in place, while a single L6 BOA® dial makes micro fit adjustments easy, even with bulky winter gloves.
Now more versatile than ever, Fizik have redesigned the X5 outsole for better grip and more traction in slippery winter conditions. Equipped with generous studs and a rubber coating that covers the entire surface, including the mid-foot, the X5 outsole provides sure footing when steep, rough tracks require you to hike with your bike.

These are a great shoe concerning construction etc. I sized up .5 size from my summer FiZik shoes to fit a thicker sock.
Waterproofing is good, but these are just not as warm as I wanted them to be. Anything below 45 F and my toes are frozen. I have been using toe covers and those help, but for something being advertised as a winter shoe I expected more in the warmth department
For a Fizik shoe this does have a generous fit, not as narrow as most. Shoe is comfortable and certainly repels water/snow. I expected/hoped the shoe would be a bit warmer, but this may be down to the sock one pairs it with. A thinner merino wool sock is good down to maybe 25-F or so, ideally I would throw a thicker sock on for colder days but that made the shoe a bit too tight for my liking. I would say that this shoe's primary function is to keep the foot dry during the shoulder season and extend into a mild winter.
Been riding since 1970's with wool socks, tin foil, plastic bags, GoreTex socks and shoe covers. So with that I went for ride Jan. 1st with temperatures reaching 35 degrees and 10 mph winds. Never felt a bit of cold discomfort and fit with heavy wool socks was superb. I forgot the puddles and snow while riding, so check off waterproof also.
