Could this be what we’ve been waiting for? A shoe that will finally keep our feet and waterproof socks toasty and dry? Andi will be putting some throu …

But will they be warm?

I’ve just switched to flats and wonder what to wear over the winter.
These. Can be had for £15 if you look around.
I bought a pair off one of the recent PSAs to replace my ageing Terex Crosstrails.
I’ve worn them once – I found them too hot for current conditions, way warmer than the previous version which is ok as I need a warmer shoe for winter. Maybe that’s the GoreTex, maybe the ankle cuff, or a bit of both. Probably won’t try them again till temps are under 10c.Posted 12 months ago
Had some for a couple of weeks and thumbs up so far. Size up though. I’m 10.5-11 normally and 11.5 is relatively snug.
As much as the waterproofness it’s the that they don’t soak as much water up as my old 5 tens that I like so far. They too forever to dry. And got so heavy.
Like all these ankle closure types getting them on is tight and a little bit of a faff.Posted 12 months ago

Useful feedback, thanks. I’m sitting here with both the regular Trailcross Mid and new GTX versions, deciding which Ito keep. I don’t ride flats that often so no justification for separate summer/winter shoes, and after trying them on have been worried the GTX might be too warm for non-winter use. Sounds like that’s probably the case. Think I’ll keep the regular mids and buy some decent waterproof socks for winter flat use.
Re sizing, I measured my feet then ordered accordingly using the size guidance on Adidas’ site. 287cm heel to toe which put me into an 11.5 (I’m normally a UK 11 in most shoes/trainers). They’re spot on.Posted 12 months ago
Right so I got some of these and I’ve just realised I don’t know anything about this sort of shoes with the sealy bit on top, never had any. Can you wear them with long socks (ie that stick up above the seal) or does that just let water past?Posted 12 months ago
Have got some and brought them out to the alps. They’ve been brilliant. The waterproof cuff and goretex liner really works – have done three or four river crossings now along with a day in the pouring rain and have stayed bone dry inside. The stripy tread on the heel is great for clambering down slippy slopes. Finally a proper flats boot for Northern European weather! Go up 1/2 a size as they’re using the Adidas/Terrex last which tends to be narrow.
Note: long socks will defeat the cuff’s waterproofness a bit. But still prevents them flooding.Posted 12 months ago
Been waiting for ages for these. So long in fact that I bought a pair of Vaude AM Moab STX over a year ago and they’ve been superb.Posted 12 months ago

My 5 10 Spitfires were falling apart (great shoes), and my wet and muddy commute was about to start so I got a pair of the water resistant Freeriders (DLSs?) (and a set of Surly Dirt Wizards) Then Coronovirus hit, my start date was put back, then we had that drought and the very wet winter and spring completely finished, the thick mud was all gone in less than a week and I had to change the Dirt Wizards and get some normal Freeriders, for a bit of ventilation for the heat. The water resistant ones were great for Autumn and Spring (and this very wet and muddy summer) and the normal freeriders only get used in the dry (I dis wear them this Wednesday…) and still look great. For the winter I got the old waterproof and insulated freeriders (EMSs?) which took a bit of searching for but were perfect winter shoes, especially with thermal insoles. The waterproofing works even submerged, up to the tongue, which lets in some water. Ugly as, but covered in mud it doesn’t matter, went a size up too, bigger thicker socks and insoles, occasional self heating toe warmers too.Posted 12 months ago
I prefer the classic “skate” look 5 10s, but that’s me, and I should get a few years out of my collection.
