C3 Gore-Tex Overshoes

Delight in toasty toes when you go for your frosty winter rides with help from the Gore Wear C3 Gore-Tex Overshoes. These handy covers strap over your kicks with hook-and-loop closure that can be cinched down for the perfect fit, while the Gore-Tex membrane sheds water and slices through wind to keep your feet as warm as possible. The lining is made from Gore's Robust Shell, adding an insulating element to the party, with polayamide that wicks, polyurethane that insulates, and added Kevlar for good measure, upping the durability. Abraison resistant material is used near the bottom of the overshoe, holding up to the moments when you have to hit the road or trail on foot. The overshoes pack down nice and tidy when you're done using them, so you can toss them in your back pocket when the sun comes out and the ground starts to warm.

  • Keep your flippers from freezing with these overshoes
  • Gore-Tex membrane sheds water and cuts through wind
  • Breathable fabric keeps sweat from building up inside
  • Insulating lining for warm feet on freezing days
  • Abraison resistant opening holds up to walking
  • Hook-and-loop closure cinches down around your shoe

Ordered these for the imminent rainy rides here in Seattle, after having worn through my Seal Skinz. Saw the reviews about the poor velcro closure, but thought "Ah well, as long as I strap my rain pant cuff down over top of them..." Opened the package today, pulled them on over my mtb/commuter bike shoes... "Wow, these really are bad." I knew I would be returning them seconds after that. Because of the loose-fitting Gore-Tex fabric as well as the awkwardly massive velcro at dead center on the back, the bottom edges hang over and on the treads of my shoes. Or, they were hanging over on one side and felt impossible to even out. Obviously, this is likely because this shoes cover does not fit snug over your shoes and they're not made to. However... The worst part is the two huge pieces of velcro at the back... You know that experience of trying to hold down two edges of wrapping paper, pulled tight with one hand while you fumble for the Scotch tape in the other? This was like that. But now imagine that your wrapping paper has elastic and you're crouching down, trying to hold it down on the back of your lower calf muscle... Gore, couldn't you have at least made the two sides attached in some way? Maybe right near the bottom? How about one of those water-repelling zippers, then a velcro strap at the top? A line of that sticky, rubber stuff to keep water from coming in at the top? I am baffled by this design. It just sucks.

Cheap velcro enclosure, runs large

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

Out of the box these looked like oversized plastic bags over my shoes- but I thought as long as they keep me dry I guess I'll live with the bizarre fit. I fastened the velcro enclosure as tight as I could around my calf (wearing leg warmers) and rode for 25 minutes in light to medium NYC rain. I had to ring out my socks as if I'd not used a shoe cover at all. Throughout the entire ride I could feel the water coming in through the top. It's obvious that the oversized nature of the product, combined with the cheap velco enclosure and lack of stretch in the fabric make it impossible to get a good seal. These were meant to replace my 15 year old no-name $25 neoprene covers- which are still intact but come loose given the age of the velcro. But for 14 of those years they kept my feet dry and warm in all kinds of crazy conditions. Bottom line- find a neoprene product with a zipper, if anyone makes it. Also, there is no insulating liner in these as advertised. Do the copywriters even touch these products before writing about them?

Agree with your comments. Not even going to try using them. I ordered them with the intent to replace a beat up older pair of Gore shoe covers that were great. These fit terribly. I cant imagine trying to walk in them. Too bad they changed the design.

Bad fit

Fit:
Runs large

These were a bad fit for me, the back closure is very strange (Velcro only) that makes them flop off the heel and get caught in the cleats. They were the right size for my shoes, but still didn't work at all. that said they were totally water/wind proof and very good shoe covers. If they fit, i'd keep them.

FYI, on the previous version, the velcro closure is great, because it lets you dial in the fit more so than if it was a zipper. Its just with this iteration, the fit is so weird that the velcro flexibility doesn't help.
