Recomend me some water proof shoes
last couple of seasons, I used the gore-tex walking boot style shimao boots. thing is, lots of water comes in over the top from puddles, wheel spray and long grass. they were warm though with a pair of seal skins. took ages to dry out though. not sure what my plans are for this winter, maybe something with a neoprene cuff.Posted 8 years agoradoggairMember
MW80's is what i use. Dont think in a propr wet ride you'll ever get a fully waterproof shoe. Remember to buy a size bigger than normal though
prob the cheapestPosted 8 years ago
Looks like autum is here! Again out biking and riding 20 miles with very soggy feet! Have tried all the usual seal skin socks over shoes etc. These things help but i think i really need some proper water proof foot wear. Im open to ideas shoes boots etc but really am on a limited budget. Anyone seen a bargain? size 44 10 ish….. Even second hand im not fussy!Posted 8 years agomeeeeeMember
would gaiters help? i was thinking of trying some for this winter to stop water coming over the top of my boots so much.
something like this…
although not actually gone into the shop to look at any yet so no idea if they'd be suitable!Posted 8 years agoballsofcottonwoolMember
I used to have a pair of shimano waterproof boots and last winter I replaced them with a pair of specialized defrosters which are much more pleasant to ride in. The defrosters aren't as well insulated as the shimano ones which means i can even wear them in summer without boiling my feet. The only time I wished for warmer boots it was -12.Posted 8 years agoz1ppyMember
Unless they've improved greatly over the last couple of years, I didn't find the NV Celsius very warm, great waterproof boot but not warm. Improved the warmth situation by going to the Shimano MT90, but as mentioned they're not great for keeping water out from coming over the cuff. Gunna buy the Shimano MW80's next, as a m8 has some & raves about how warm they arePosted 8 years ago
