Hello,

Does anyone know of waterproof cycling shoes I can use for commuting in the rain? Must be able to use clipless pedals.

Thanks, Aaron

I can only imagine the discomfort of wearing a waterproof shoe for any length of time.

I just use plastic grocery bags with a cleat hole cut into the bottom and a velcro reflector band at the ankle. I carry this stuff anyway, the ankle bands for nighttime commutes and the bags for dirty underwear, so it's no extra load.

Have you thought of gore tex socks? I picked up a pair at Bikenashbar.com for $29.

Best solution is to get a pair of overshoes - should be able to get some Gore-tex ones for about £40 - LBS/net. Better than socks as you don't have wet shoes, and you might find that socks make your shoes on the tight side.

To add to the above - neoprene overboots will make you feet warm, but will not keep them absolutley dry - they will wet through eventually. Gore-tex overboots on the other hand do the opposite (though dry feet are obviously warmer than wet). For commuting, there are specific gore-tex overboots - see, for example, www.evanscycles.com under "winterwear". Take your pick...
