I have problems with blood circulation in my feet, so the minute my feet cold they will stay cold (or even go numb) for most of the ride. These solved that problem perfectly without causing excessive heat to build up inside the cover. Make sure you follow the sizing chart when buying these. I wear an EU43 which falls into their 'Large' category. I didn't think my feet would be labeled as 'Large' and thought the chart might be wrong so I ended up sizing down to a 'Medium' which was a big mistake. I ended up having to send back my pair in exchange for a 'Large'. They also have the possibility of causing irritation on the back of your heel where the zipper is. I've had the problem a couple times but usually I can find a spot where the zipper won't bother me.
