  • 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...

  • Tiny calfs?

  • 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

  • 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
