Waterproof winter shoes / boots for flat pedals … ?
I’ve done a quick search but couldn’t really come up with anything.Posted 4 years ago
Is there anything on the market with a decent sole like 5-10s or the Shimano AM41, and with an upper like the Northwave Celsius GTX boot ?
Got a decent pair of Goretex walking boots but they still don’t stop water coming in over the top, so something with a tight fitting waterproof upper to stop them filling water would ideal.
Anyone came across anything ?
I go for a different ideal and use Five Ten Canyoneer boots, this is for the coast fat biking, but also used the set for real wet days on trails.
Thin wool socks inside Seal Skins, seem to keep feet warm even if the seal Skins leak. no probs with pedal grip from the Canyoneer leech like grip!
Only down side is the twin velcro tensioner straps on the boot make friends slag you off for wearing special needs shoes 😆
Also used them with British Army liners (£15 on eBay) for dry feet all day, used these liners for metal detecting in streams and they are ace 🙂Posted 4 years ago
I should’ve said in the 1st post really … I always use some 5-10s, and have some decent socks and some sealskinz, I don’t have a problem with keeping my feet warm or dry, its just the 5-10s getting soaked and taking ages to dry out, that’s why i’m looking for something that has a upper cover of some sort to keep them filling up with water.Posted 4 years agodevsMember
Wow. Riding in sorrels. one down from riggers
Got the fat bike, got the Sorels, just need one of the winters from a couple of years back 🙂
I use Teva links (cos they dry out quicker) with LONG sealskins, merino underneath and endura stealth tights. Never failed yet. Toasty and dry. 5:10s sprayed with Grangers for normal winter rides when it isn’t bucketing down.Posted 4 years agoSuperficialMember
All these people suggesting Gore Tex hiking type boots: Have you ever ridden in them?
I once used my walking boots for a mid-winter hike up / ride down Snowdon. The thick soles were completely horrible to ride in – I’d never recommend them.
Surely the obvious answer is to embrace SPDs… I love my MW81 boots in winter.Posted 4 years agopktriMember
Look at approach shoes such as Mammut GTX Redburn, with a gaitor similar to http://www.inov-8.com/New/Global/Product-View-DebrisGaiter-32.html?L=27 …. could be improvised out of some ols sealskin socks?Posted 3 years ago
