For Mother Nature's worst.

Giordana designed the SottoZero Shoecover for the serious winter road cyclist. Below-zero temperatures can sap your strength as you body struggles to stay warm. Unfortunately, your hands and feet are the most susceptible. The SottoZero's neoprene construction insulates and fights off the wind to give your foot full protection.

How to Measure:
Use your shoe size to find your sock size.
Measure the circumference of your hand around the widest part of the palm not including the thumb, just below the base of the fingers. Giordana gloves are race style, if you have "fat" hands you may want to size up.

Warm enough, zipper is the weakness

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

Fit was good, L fit nicely over 44 Sidi road shoes (I prefer my shoe covers to fit on the snug side). Not super-warm, but warm enough that 2-3hr rides in the mid/low-20s were tolerable with a pair of thin merino socks. These were too warm once temps hit the high 30s.

I used these almost daily through 2 New England winters and was largely happy with them, until one of the zippers started to come apart halfway through the second winter. But since they are only $40, and no shoe cover will last more than a few years under heavy use - I'd consider buying again.

Not awesome, not going to last forever, but good enough given the price.

Works well for me!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I love these covers. I wear a 38 women's size in Sidi's, so maybe the "runs small" issue that others have is an advantage for me. I have the size small and they're perfect - other manufacturers' smallest sizes are too big for my feet. The warmth is moderate - can do a 2 hour ride in 40 degree weather without cold toes, but around freezing temps is pushing it. Never had an issue with zippers. I've worn these through 2 seasons and they're still going strong.


Zipper is junk

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

Great cover but now my zipper is also toast - used gently this winter season - I would say 14 rides and zipper done. My road shoe is 44 btw which fits XL fine. Will have to try and get zipper repaired. Would buy another pair at Backcountry sale for $23, but only have sz. M which would fit a child.


Sizing is off.

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

Seems really well built. Look great...however order ATLEAST a size up. I received mine and had to return. Unfortunately, they were out of my size :(

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

I ordered this item in size Large. Upon receipt, I was initially impressed with the construction and overall design which I have come to expect from Giordana products. I stretched the cover over the shoe as one reviewer suggested, but could not get the zipper to clear the heel of the shoe. I did not want to exert so much force as to damage the zipper or worse, have it rip into the back of my ankle. I understand now how another reviewer experienced blisters on the back of his heel after closing the zippers. you should EITHER offer the cover in Extra Large OR Giordana should redesign the back end of the cover. I will be exchanging this item.

Exactly what I expected

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

Ordered size XL, fits nice and snug over size 44M Sidi road shoes without being to hard to get on and off. Only worn them a couple times on cool fall morning rides and so far they seem perfect. Keep my feet warm without overheating.... will update review after some colder rides in the upcoming weeks....


Great fit, excellent loft, NOT Italian

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I purchased these under the impression that all Giordana garments are made in Italy.

I was so disappointed to see the "Made In China" sticker. That said, the initial quality for the price point makes them a fair exchange.

Ordered the XL for 44.5 Sidi Dragon SRS mountain shoe and it is nice and snug as it should be. I would NOT go down to a Large to mitigate the chance of zipper failure.

Fantastic soft fleece loft inside the neoprene. Heavy duty toe rubber for longevity and perhaps the BEST reflective accents I have ever seen on an cold weather bootie. The rear strip and heel cap are very bright in lights and if your weather is such that you require these booties, chances are you will want every driver to see you at distance from behind.

A+ on fit, warmth and safety accents while still maintaining a very sleek package for a winter bootie. As always, excellent service from Competitive Cyclist.


Nice shoe cover

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

These neoprene shoe covers have a fleece like lining and fit like a glove. Some reviews complain about the zipper but I think the key is to take your time putting them on to carefully stretch them around your shoes before zipping them up. They are not like lycra stretchy covers but require work to mold them to your shoe because they fit very close. They are warm below 32 but not hot at 50 degrees. They are very durable.


Not a good zipper

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

Used twice last year and now the zipper is broken


Not recommended

    Used less than 10 times and the zipper is broken...Expensive piece of garbage.


    Not for me!

      I Like the style and fit over shoe is great as well as keep your feet warm. The only thing is that they really dig into your ankle. They gave me blisters on the back of my heel. my recommendation would be to go with a neoprene cover with out a zipper. My husband sware's by the Castelli Diluvio!

      I wear a size 44 bike shoe, what size of cover works best for this shoe size?

      Sorry about the funky size chart!
      The sizing is (per euro shoe size):
      Small: 36-38
      Medium: 39-43
      Large: 44-46
      XL: 47-48

      I wear a size 44 shimano shoe and bought the size XL SottoZero which seems to fit perfectly. It has a little room for sure, but I think a size large would be totally tight. I'm happy with the XL

      I wear a 45 in Northwaves... the Large is waaaay too small. the zippers popped halfway through the first ride and now I need to have them repaired...
