Item # AAS0099

Ride free from worry

While Assos has a multitude of seemingly complicated shoe coverings to choose from, these are easy to explain. They're the direct descendant of Assos' legendary airBlock bootie. The Assos winterBootie_S7 is aimed at the same temperature range and does everything the now-discontinued airBlock did, only better.

To start, Assos employed the strataGon fabric for its enhanced waterproofing and breathability. It handles nasty weather better than airBlock, and ultimately, it leaves your foot more comfortable over a long duration. This new fabric's success hinges on Assos' new flexible membrane. Incredibly, the membrane closes down its microscopic pores when cold and opens them up when warm. Not only is the material more waterproof on its own, but thanks to the new panel design, it's increasingly difficult for water to seep in through the seams. There's a large panel that covers up to the ankle without seams, effectively shielding the entire forward portion of the foot with one seamless layer. Two smaller side panels run up from the heel alongside the ankles.

The winterBootie is designed to fit snug around your shoe. While it might require a bit more effort to pull them on, they seal perfectly around your shoe once in place. The toes, cleat areas, and heels have been reinforced with an external layer of durable nylon swatches. The zipper is waterproof with a locking lever and a reflective stripe running the length of the zipper.

The Assos winterBootie_S7 is part of Assos' climaRange 6. Assos calls this Winter, and defines its effective protection range being between 32-46 degrees Fahrenheit (0-8 degrees Celsius). The winterBootie is available in the colors Black and White and in Size 0 (35-38), Size I (38-42), and Size II (43-46).

Do not buy these booties.

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

I bought these booties as a supplement to a couple of other pairs that I own, primarily for temperatures around 40 degrees. The booties performed well at that temperature, what did not perform well were the zippers. The zipper on one separated after minimal use. Ever tried returning a defective item to Assos? Spare yourself the frustration, don't.

I bought a pair of these booties recently , and checked out the quality of the product. After checking out the quality, there is no finer shoe cover on the market. There is a certain technique to putting on the assos product....now i did not pay nearly as much as you gentleman paid, but i can tell you they are well made. I will be testing the product , and will be posting if i have any problems with the zipper or any other defective flaws.

Also that shoe chart is not correct.

Really disappointed

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I wear a US size 10.5 for starters. When I initially tried to put these on I had a ton of trouble getting them to fit over my clip on's and gave up for some time. A few foot soaked rides later I tried again and was able to fit them on. They fit great and worked as advertised. I was stoked! They were pretty dirty after a 30 mile ride in the rain so I threw them on gentle cycle with my other assos gear I used for the ride. A couple days later as I prepped for a rainy ride to work I broke the zipper on the booty. Hoping to arrive with one dry foot I tried the other on and that zipper broke also! Super bummed that I paid so much and got just one ride out of these. I spoil myself with a lot of assos gear but this product disappoints.

Any one who does pony up for them please know to handle with care as you put them on. It is a wrestling match getting them on over the shoe clips but must be done with patience and delicate care. This is my first true winter riding and I confess I am a noob. Maybe this is common knowledge and I learned the hard way. Yet my next pair will come at a much more reasonable price point. There must be other quality booties out there for much cheaper. And if I do break them I won't be pissed that I just wasted $179!!!!
