Booties(7 posts)

I recently received a new pair of PI Amfib shoe covers for my birthday to replace my old neopreme booties which are now mostly duct tape. These new ones looked a little thin to me, anyone have experience with them? I need botties that will be good down into the lower teens but mostly for riding in the 20's. My old neopreme ones were OK, but is there anything better out there? Your personal and annecdotal experience will be highly regarded here, this is a key piece of equipment for winter riding comfort. I already have some "toekinis" for the intermediate days, I just need something for the extremes.
TIA

Neoprene booties don't vent moisture very well. I use Lake winter shoes, Miss M has Sidi winter shoes. With them your feet are cool but not cold and don't feel like they are in a sauna. In the winter wet & hot is as bad or worse than cold.

The shoes are very good quality and look like they will last several winters. Well worth the cost.
Where do you find them?look271

Never even heard of them, but I like the idea. My booties are about shot and they never worked that well, anyway.
Team Performance has Sidi Winter Cycling boots on sale now.nmMB1

I have never used the PI Amfib shoe covers, but I do use the Amfib tights and gloves. They both work well into the 20s. I use neoprene booties for my feet and the only problem is getting them over my shoes.
