- Preparing for the worst: Winter boot content
I had a pair of Specialized Defrosters which were very good for all but the coldest of winter rides. Got them a size larger to wear thick wool socks. Very comfortable winter shoes. I had the older ones, though, so not sure how the new ones with the “boa” lacing are like.Posted 4 years agotonydMember
Timely thread! I’ve been pondering some winter boots this year, not sure my overshoes will survive another winter and they’re not that great when it gets really cold and wet. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the defrosters and find Shimano shoes fit me well so will be getting some of those I think.Posted 4 years agoDanWMember
Although not strictly what you are asking… 😳
A nice thick merino sock (Giro) and a neoprene overshoe (Endura) over the regular shoe is perfect for keeping dry and warm. I have had no issues at all with this combination and the total cost is around £30. This includes the coldest weather last winter where mud was freezing in my brake calipers and in the wet we had where most of our local trails were actually flooded!Posted 4 years agoprawnyMember
Shimano AM45s did the trick for me. Not proper water/winterproof but with decent socks they were fine well below zero last winter. I had the shimano goretex boots when I was commuting and they were no better.
When it’s proper cold though I use flats incase of ice and snow, so just end up wearing trainers 😕Posted 4 years agocompositeSubscriber

I know summer is still going strong and long may that continue but:
My birthday coming up and I’m in need of some new winter boots.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve got a pair of Lake MX140’s which are brilliant boots but are just a bit too big and I’ve always been aware of the fact they are a little big so I’d like to get a new pair for my B’day.
What are people recommending these days? Not after a ‘full-on’ winter boot but something that will keep my feet warm (we ride whatever the weather) and dry. I tend to use Sealskins too to help keep the water out..
