Good things come to those who train. And, since a winter on rollers in the garage may as well be an appointment for a lobotomy, the Sidi Hydro GTX Cold-Weather Shoes will keep you riding outside all the way through the cold seasons. The Hydros are built around a Gore-Tex bootie that is tested at every stage to ensure complete waterproofness and breathability. The Lorica and nylon uppers keep cold air at bay, and the neoprene cuff effectively seals out moisture from above. Four hook-and-loop straps allow you to easily adjust the fit, and the Hydros are built slightly larger than a typical Sidi shoe to accommodate thicker socks.
- Nylon sole provides plenty of stiffness for training
- Replaceable heel pad gives you traction off the bike and at stoplights
- Light insulation keeps your feet warm without turning the shoes into sweatboxes
- Make sure to keep your pant or tight cuffs on the outside of the neoprene cuff to keep water from seeping in
