|The Northwave Huskies are great. I've ridden in temps as low as 30 degrees (F) for 9 hours with no cold toes. I use DeFeet Boolie Woolie (or Woolie Boolie?) socks with them.
They seal up well against wind and water. The have a good sized toe box, so you can move your toes around to get the blood circulating. Stiff enough. Putting them on is a little weird, but effective. You lace up an inside shoe, then the outer shell zips over the laces. My toes have been warm when other guys with covers report cold toes, and you don't wear them out like covers. They are great for winter riding here in Fresburg.

|to ensure you get the best deal on what you want. Here's another source selling Dog's shoe:
On the surface, it looks like a better deal, until you notice that the cleat adapter is $12.95, pushing the total to a bit over Dog's, which includes it in the price. OTOH, if you are using clips and straps and don't need the adapter, this may be the better deal.
And let's not forget to compare shipping rates...
