Venerable weather protection.

When it comes to wind protection, few names inspire the confidence of GORE. Castelli enjoys a similarly glowing reputation for high-end cycling apparel. Since it represents a combination of the two venerable manufacturers, we had high expectations for the latest generation of Castelli's Narcisista 2 Shoecover. With cold-resistance courtesy of GORE and Castelli's decades of cycling know-how behind it, the Narcisista 2 doesn't disappoint.

And that's a good thing, because we've built up a relationship with the Narcisista models of the past. Like its predecessors, the Narcisista 2 incorporates panels of neoprene at the ankle and heel for weatherproof flex that protects against road moisture. It does feature an upgrade to GORE, though, with the previous model's Stratolight body being replaced by Windstopper X-Fast.

The combination of materials insulates to preserve body heat and provides water resistance so that warm microclimate isn't compromised by clammy dampness. It isn't equal to a monsoon-like deluge, but the Narcisista 2 will keep your feet dry in most conditions where riding a bike at speed is still a feasible undertaking. If it's raining so hard that the Narcisista 2 would be overwhelmed, it's probably best to just stay inside and watch replays of the weather-stricken 2002 Roubaix, anyway.

The inclusion of a zipper makes the Narcisista 2 easy to pull on, and the zipper is waterproof so there's no easy point of elemental ingress. The shoecovers' soles are built for durability, and a hit of reflectivity on the heel helps keep you visible in the kind of low-light, overcast conditions where the superlative protection of GORE Windstopper and neoprene will really come in handy.

  • A cold-weather cycling shoecover
  • GORE's Windstopper X-Fast material resists the elements
  • Neoprene inserts add flex without compromising water-resistance
  • Waterproof zipper ensures a dry ride
  • Reflective heel detail for low-light visibility

Great Shoe Covers

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

This cover performed really well keeping wind and splashing water from puddles completely out. I rode it in the 40*s F and had no problems with cold toes. The XL fits really well over my Sidi Wires size 45, but I also like my covers on the tight side. I doesn't fit quite as well over my Giro Empires, but that is more an outer-soul issue. No issues at all zipping them up.

Looks great, performs better

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

Great shoe covers! They do just the trick on those cold days. They have a pretty low volume, so not super bulky. The material is pretty nice and they are quite comfortable. They tend to run a bit small. I wear a size 44 shes, but I could have done an XL. A great shoe cover!

Look good, suffer well

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Best shoe covers I have used. They do run small. I wear 46 and the XXL is perfect. Shoe covers that are too tight will wear out more quickly. Avoid this issue by getting a pair that stay put, but don't compress the shoe. I've ridden in these covers down to 30 degrees with a wool sock and they kept my feet off my mind.

Stylish and does the job! Winner.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XXL

I wear a size 46EU/12.25US Specialized shoe with 1 BOA dial. These fit just right no issues getting them on or off. Several reviews did mention the difficulty in zipping up. Can agree completely, just need to take your time to get them started but then it is smooth sailing. The heel cut out does not really fit my shoe as I have 2 rail like platform as opposed to a solid bump. These are great keeping the wind out and the thermal layer keeps my feet nice and warm.

Castelli should really do something !

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

1, the logo peels off easily,

2 the front part of the bottom breaks easily.

for the front part of the bottom, I have to use duct tape, but still no use,

Castelli should really do something !

Look good, don't last

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL (I'm a size 12 shoe - U.S.)

Loved the stylish looks but unfortunately they have zero durability. After 1 ride they started to wear through in spots. I've worn them maybe 4-5 times in all and probably can get one more ride out of them before they end up shredded to tatters.

Too hard to zip

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: large

I couldn't zip them up due, I believe, to the zipper being designed to go too low on the back of the shoe and perhaps due to my own inflexibility. The fit on my Sidi shoe was snug but ok. I just couldn't get them zipped even with a lot of effort. So I'm having to return the item. FWIW, I wear 9.5 (US) shoe and bought large.

Tough zipper placement.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: Size 42.5 shoes

These seem pretty nice, didn't use them. Returned. Where the zipper is placed and the nature of the stretchy material, makes it impossible to zip these with one hand. It's a twist your back two handed yoga maneuver. I'd also prefer that they go higher. But they do seem well made, otherwise good design and materials.

The Best

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been really happy with these shoe covers, Castelli makes some really great winter riding gear and these are no exception. They are plenty warm around freezing temps and will keep your feet dry. They do run slightly small so size up if you're in between sizes.

Just what I was looking for

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

As previous reviewers have mentioned, these run smaller than indicated. I bought a size L for EU 41 shoes (even though the sizing chart says M), fits perfectly.

These replaced a pair of Rapha winter overshoes for me, but they never kept my feet warm enough. These are fantastic. The exterior is stretchy and accommodates shoes and Boa dials perfectly, the fleece lining keeps my toes warm while reasonably wicking away any sweat. I've worn them down to 30F, at which point I swap for a heavier pair of Gores.

Dwarf sizing

  • Fit: Runs small

I excitedly opened my new winter shoe covers only to see that they may fit perfectly if only I were a 6 year old girl. I wear a size 9.5 US or 44 EU. Ordered a Large based on Castelli size guide. I cannot get the cover on my shoe at all. Almost have to rip it to even get the bottom hole over my Shimano cleats. I knew Castelli run small but I recommend oversizing by 2 sizes. I have never worn an XL in anything but after this I believe I need an XXL. UPS loves all the shipping to and from $$$.

Style and warmth

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

Rode in upper 30s, low 40s. These shoe covers were nice and warm. Very stylish! Just like all Castelli kit, size up. I have larger ankles and calves so zipper is a little more challenging for me. I am sure I would have that issue with any brand. I have a 43-44 shoe and I ordered XL. Good fit. I would buy again.

WARMTH in the form of STYLE

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

The warmers have been great, I feel that they run a touch small so if you are on the bubble, or anywhere near the bubble, size up. I wear a size 43 and went with a Large since the reviews said they ran small. I was stoked on the fit and that made it easier to get them on and off.
I have worn them down into the teens and they were acceptable with wool socks, in the 20's and 30's they were perfect. I rode them in some light rain / snow and they did a great job of keeping me warm.
I would buy these again.

Castelli works for me

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I wear a size 42.5 in Sidi's & Specialized....I knew Castelli stuff usually runs smaller so I ordered a Large and it has worked out fine......shoe covers are usually not the easiest pieces to put on, so I didn't expect a slam dunk here.....a little work to fit over the buckles and bands, but with a little patience they fit like they should...... snug......keeps my feet nice and warm ( I've worn them from the high 30's to the low 50's)..... the zipper seems like it will hold up as long as I'm careful....I ruined a pair of Giordana covers by being impatient.....the price is right as long as you buy when it's discounted........

PITA first time. Awesome afterwards

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I really like the look of this shoe cover. Like it better than the Duvilo covers I bought last year because I prefer a zipper over velcro and it keeps out rain better. I order a XXL even though I wear a 42 shoe and the shoe guide says pick XL (it is Castelli after all). Even buying up a size the first time I put tried to put the shoe covers on I bet it took me ten minutes on just one shoe and boy was I cussing. There is a trick. While holding both sides of the cover in one hand, you hold the zipper in the other and manage to also hold the bottom of the boot cover down to make it zip up. It is that last thing that makes it easy and now they go on quickly. No cussing. I have had several people compliment me on how good these shoe covers look while I usually think more function than form on such an item as this, I will say the look is one thing that got me to buy them. It fits very close to the shoe/leg, and has kept out the rain pretty well and worked in some pretty cold temps. With the thicker Castelli socks I even rode down to 28F in a light misting rain for over an hour one day and was fine. I would buy a pair again.

PITA first time. Awesome afterwards


  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Receive shoe covers and both of them had zippers that didn't work it like they're damaged before before ship. I was very disappointed that they would ship me a used product will be
returning these.

Truly Exceptional Product!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XXL

They are warm, fit perfectly, windproof and the Hi-Viz Fluo is extraordinary! Thanks to Clayton Otto for suggesting the color!

It does the job but..

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XXL

This is my second Castelli clothing and still don't understand their sizing guide. How do they come up with these measurements? I wear size 10 shoes and knowing it's Castelli I went one size up and got XL. It was impossible to zip the shoe covers so I returned it in exchange for XXL and that just barely fits. If you are size 11 or up, don't even bother with these.
Because of the tight fit I'm worried that one day the seam line or the zipper will pop.
Other than these issues, it does a good job of blocking the wind and keeping your toes warm.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: X Large

These are some cool looking shoe covers, they match my Assos ij Bonka Jacket and several of my gear. Oh, did I mention they are supet warm??? These covers are very warm and easy to slip on & off. Can't be any happier... Love them

Very nice shoe cover

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 2XL

Ditto other reviews re small sizing. But this is Castelli and is to be expected. The 2XL just barely works on my 47 road shoes. I've used them down around freezing with sock liners and wool socks and have been totally comfortable. I have the hi viz yellow and think they look really cool and help make me hard to miss on the road.
