Also, I just discovered they're cycling gaiters to further seal the tops of winter boots. May just buy some, or chop some velotozes for a truly watertight shoe
But then everything just runs down into the sock...
@Netakure I've looked at the Northwave, they seem good. Does the neoprene gaiter thing actually work or does it have the same problem as the waterproof socks?
There's bound to be someone on the forum who's got those...
Works... To a degree. I think the major problem as with every other boot is water running down the legs. Still, with waterproof shocks they're a great combo, you may get damp feet if there's huge amounts of road spray but little else
the shimano winter boots are pretty nice
Sealskinz doing a promo at the moment.
Winter bib tights on a budget - any recommends? Planet X stuff looks cheap but not sure about quality since buying stuff recently that wasn’t good.
i'm a fan of unpadded tights you wear over shorts
the howies ones (which are currently in their sale if you'd fit a large)
Howies are doing their unpadded tights for £40 at the moment. You can wear something else underneath - I've worn tri-shorts / bib shorts before.
Not waterproof but warm enough for my little leggies
Check out running tights. They're unpadded, cheap and often come with zipped legs and a handy rear pocket.
Thanks all, good ideas :)
Bought a pair of Craft tights from PlanetX - have had a jersey for at least eight years and it hardly looks worn despite years of use - with the bid for £21. Tried them Wednesday and they really cosy
So, then got these this morning, will report back (seemed pretty good value if they work as I get really cold feet)
Also, proper fit on the bottom of the shoes
