Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Toe Covers $17.95
A beanie for your toes
Your super-vented, featherweight road shoes are doing a fantastic job of keeping your feet dry, but the mercury has dropped a few steps, and your toes are feeling a little blue. Pull on the Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Toe Covers and get back to riding. The Elite Thermal Toe Covers are ideal for chilly training rides when full shoe covers are overkill but plastic wrap over your socks isn’t cutting it.
What community has to say
Prevent foot pain, keep your toes warm
Pearl Izumi USA (based near Boulder, Colorado) designs GREAT cold-weather gear - including arm & leg warmers, gloves, thermal caps, and cycling jackets.
These Elite toe warmers feature excellent fit, fabric, and QC -per usual from Pearl Izumi. Best for riding in 45/50-70* weather.
For temps below 45*, buy a full shoe cover -like Pearl's awesome P.R.O. Barrier WxB shoe covers.
Fit: I'm a 45 euro in Sidi and Shimano, the L/XL fits me perfect.
The Pearl Izumi website says: the S/M fits 36-42 and the L/XL fits sizes 43-48.
Nice Little Fall/Spring Addition
Purchased these and Pearl's PRO version and shortly returned the PRO version. For the price these are awesome, fit just right and just tight enough while keeping the chill off your toes. You can use these to about 45 or so but no colder for me. When it gets really cold in the low 30's I will use these and a full boot cover to fight the chill, awesome!! Would definetely purchase again.
OK Toe Warmers
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These toe warmers did an ok job when the temperature was down in the 40's, but eventually my toes became numb after a few hours on the bike. I would probably pay more and get a better pair for those colder days.
Never owned toe covers before, was a little worried about buying toe covers or shoe covers but these do the trick. I live in Texas and the weather isn't too cold but they definately take the chill off during a ride. I am very pleased.
Better Than Nothing
They're better than nothing, but not much better. These are good for when is barely getting chilly but I wouldn't buy them if you plan on using them effectively below 45 degrees. I went on a ride in about 32 degree weather and couldn't feel anything below the ankle when I got home. I didn't expect to be warm, but didn't think I would be that cold. That being said, they have been fine for days above 45 degrees.
