The 10 Best Cycling Overshoes and Boots to keep the Feeling in your Feet!

Winter cycling is a tough one to dress for. Luckily, there’s tonnes of gear out there that will keep you warm when riding in the cold. Your feet are one of the main parts of your body that will suffer the most from the temperature drop and this is why you need a good pair of cycling overshoes to keep them warm.

Why do your feet lose warmth quickly when cycling in the cold? One reason is that capillaries are smaller in the feet so are one of the first places to get a lack of blood flow as a result feel colder. Another is that your feet will always be in the same position on the bike; they’ll always be the closest part of your body to the ground and catch all of the spray, cold wind and lack of movement whilst riding.

There are multiple ways to ensure you keep your feet warm and combat the inevitable curse, including thick socks, a good diet to help circulation and loosening your straps on your shoes. Cycling overshoes however are one of the best solutions to keeping the feeling in your feet this winter. They don’t just do the job, but they also protect your current cycling shoes as they are windproof, waterproof and very thick – so instead of buying two pairs of shoes, you can wear your best ones with a simple cover. There is also the option of winter boots. Northwave have a number of these that are well worth the buy, as with Shimano.

Some overshoes, covers and boots are reflective as well which gives you some high visibility points!

I'm a runner at heart but since shin splints became a big part of my life, I turned to cycling as a form of cross training. I love riding track and am a regular on the Manchester velodrome; on the road I ride a Trek Lexa and I call it Toby.
