Ok, dumb question. In recent road races/training I have been at, I have noticed some people ride with booties during the warm weather. Is that just part of their uniforms, or do some people ride so fast the their feet will still get cold when it is 75 degrees out?

Well there are booties & there are shoe covers.
Were the ones you saw made out of lycra or ??
Lots of teams wear lycra shoe covers as part of the uniform or in TT's as an aerodynamic advantage (however small )
Also if wet to keep shoes from getting soaked (nm)Dwayne Barry

They might save you 3-5 seconds in a 40K TT.
It's kind of silly to wear them, just riding around.
They really won't keep your feet dry because the water will run down your legs into your socks.
Yeah they're really...Dwayne Barry

only good for slightly wet conditions, that's when I use them.
