Need to size up, and not good for water resistance
I generally really like Pearl Izumi stuff, but these didn't do it for me here in the wet Pacific Northwest. In order to fit over my size 44 MTB shoes, I needed an XL, but then it leaves such a large hole on the bottom for the cleat and in the heel that the water easily runs up onto the shoe, leaving my feet soaked in no time.
size up for x-alp
great shoe covers! saved couple hundred bucks buying these over a winter pair of shoes. purchased size larger than recommended to fit my x-alp shoes and they fit perfect. super tight fit and neoprene sits about 3 inches above my ankle.
other reviews talk about not being waterproof under foot, which is obvious. there is no material underfoot. these are shoe covers for riding your bike, not shoe covers for walking around.
Sizing is pretty off, but I'd imagine decent if they fit
Wound up w/ a pair of these after a zipper went bad on a pair of Endura MT500s on my 2nd ride in them.
They're decent I suppose but sizing is off, I wound up needing a XXL to sort of fit over a pair of size 46.5 Specialized Tahoes and it's still a 5-10 minute process trying to get them on. No matter what I do I can't stretch them enough to get the bottom inch and a half or so of the velcro to attach which winds up leaving a pretty decent section of my heel exposed.
They do a decent job of insulation and leave pretty much all of the tread of your shoe available for hike a bike, but this design also seem to allow a substantial amount of snow to creep up under the toe.
The combo of the neoprene and pseudo kevlar coated fore foot seems to repel any water, snow, and mud that lands on it pretty well. They seem like they will probably be pretty durable as well.
Keep your feet happy on the mtb
This shoe cover is a mirror image of our time tested Barrier road shoe over specifically designed for mountain bike shoes. Its warm, abrasion and cut resistant, and includes a small elastic reinforced band across the toes to keep the front from flipping up if you have to get off and hike.
Don't waste your money
If you want to waste your money and have cold feet, these booties are awesome. The point of booties is to cover your shoes and protect from the elements, these failed miserably. The front part of the covers do not stay over the toe and let in both wind and water. I guess PI was trying to make a cover that doesn't get hosed on the bottom from walking on them. Unfortunately they missed the mark by a long-shot. Bottom line-these are crap and you should look elsewhere for warm feet.
Not worth half the cost
The pro is he waterproof outer. However, they are thin, cheap and way under sized. My extra large are supposed to cover up to size 12; without exaggeration, they would not go over more than size 9. Mine won't even make it around the back of my shoe. There are mtb covers that are twice as good for half the cost. These are a waste of your money.
I really like these booties. Fit true to size, easy to use (remove/put on) and kept me completely warm at 32F during a nighttime road ride. I wore thin summer sock w/ my Sidi carbon sole shoes and feel that this setup will be good for me down to 10F. I normally get cold feet first which will occasionally end my ride early - I don't think I'll have that problem moving forward.
I recommend - get 'em!
anybody know if these are waterproof?
anybody know if these are waterproof?
Waterproof is extreme, however Water Resistant would be my best guess for this. Eventually water will get inside from the top or bottom like all booties.
