Wet roads ahead.

Castelli made sure that keeping your feet warm and dry doesn't have to ruin your overall aesthetic with the Tempesta Shoe Covers, which protect your feet from rain, sleet, and snow with the streamlined design and functionality you'd expect from the Italian brand.

The shoe covers are the first to feature Castelli's new OutDry technology, which involves vacuum-bonding an OutDry membrane to a stretchy nylon shell to create a single impermeable-but-breathable layer. Castelli constructed the top zipper to be waterproof too, so once you put the covers on, your feet are completely sealed off from water coming from all directions.

When you're getting ready to ride, use the neoprene ankle cuffs to pull the shoe covers on quickly and easily — they fit close to the body to keep water out and keep them in place. Castelli recommends using the Tempestas with any type of cleat in temperatures ranging from 43 to 53 degrees.

If it's raining outside...

  • Fit: Runs small

After 20+ years of riding, my search for the ultimate wet weather shoe cover carries on. I’ve long been a fan of Castelli’s Diluvio 16 neoprene booties. But during really long rides in the rain even these eventually soak through. Soon followed by the dreaded winter foot chills. The Tempesta shoecover is made from OutDry material which is supposed to be water-proof and breathe a bit. Castelli says this is the only shoecover made from OutDry.

PROS: They work. Look good.

CONS: A little expensive. Rated for use in 45-55° weather (not insulated). I might wear these -over- Diluvios for deep winter riding.

Tip #1 for riding in the rain: Water spray from the front wheel can eventually work its way up through the vent holes in the bottom of your road shoes (if your shoes have them) and soak your socks. Tape any vent holes up with duct tape on wet days or your feet will get soaked from the bottom.

Tip #2 for riding in the rain... During dry cold rides, everyone wears their bibtights (leg) tucked into their booties of course. On long rainy rides, however, I recommend trying wearing your bibtights -over- your booties. Otherwise rain will eventually seep down the bibtight fabric and into your socks, soak them, and then your feet. Riding with cold, wet feet is miserable.

Sizing: I wear a 45 in Sidi and Shimano. The XL fit very snug. I liked the XXL better. (If you're a 45 buy both and see which you prefer.)

These shoe covers do what they are supposed to, keep your feet dry. They definitely run small, I wear a 45.5 specialized shoe and the 2XL fit the bill. You have to work your way back from the toe making sure to utilize the stretch of the material to get them to fit well, but once they do they are great. I have not experienced any rubbing or uncomfortable spots in the covers while riding. I ride with my leg warmers over the shoe covers and it works great. I've ridden in the worst Oregon rainfall this winter and these are the only covers I have used that keep my feet dry and warm.

Works as advertised, but extremely small

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

I have always run a large in everything Castelli and wanted some rain gear for the fall. I use a size 45 Sidi wire and these were tight, in an XL. If you run a bigger shoe, you may not be able to get these to work. They are warm, and when used with the Tempesta leg warmers, will keep your feet drive. But be forewarned, I was close to stretching the zipper and have thought of returning them just because they are so tight, I've thought that I'd bust them.

Yes, everyone, remember to size up +1 or even +2 with Castelli shoe covers.

I also wear a 45 in Sidi. I have purchased Castelli shoecovers in both XL and XXL. The XLs (the recommended size) run very snug. I like the fit if the XXL more. The XXLs are still snug, effective, and good looking. Hope this sizing info helps.
