    Does anyone know of insulated insoles that might help with a cold feet problem. I think the cleats are partly to blame, conducting heat away. Walking on snow was the last straw.

    Somewhat coincidentally I’ve just been looking for some – maplin have one as per the below link but there seem to be loads on amazon.

    I can highly recommend merino wool socks! Keep the feet toasty

    Overshoes?

    Sealskins?

    hi slow what shoes are you using? I wear Northwave celcius boots in the winter. Very warm and the cleat hole doesnt go through the sole into the foot bed.

    Have you thought of wearing flats? Being able to move the feet around could help.

    Alternatively Sealskinz as mentioned above, the merino ones are good but you’d need your footwear to be a size larger.

    Thanks all, I have some really nice Lake 255 winter boots which they don’t make any more. I need laces (odd-shaped feet*) and the boots have Vibram soles and pukka leather uppers so I’d like to stick with them. They are really good for those get off and walk moments. However there isn’t a lot of room for extra-thick socks.

    *I gave away the top Shim model with the rubber sleeve: far too tight.

    A few friends swear by lining their shoes with aluminium foil around the toes & cleat. Worth a try?

    So, in case anyone else might need to know – I bought a pair of these

    http://www.mysmartbuy.com/p-1178-Heat-Reflecting-Thermal-Insoles.html#THE01

    which have three layers, felt, foam and shiney ally.

    Obviously I can’t really comment until the next ride (and push) in snow. And none of this is critical of the boots, it’s because the Beta Blockers I take reduce circulation in one’s hands and feet.
