Just say no to wind and rain.

No one likes to ride in wind and rain, but sometimes that's all we have to work with, especially in the volatile weather of transitional seasons. For days when temperatures don't call for ski-level thermal gear but the wind and rain threaten our extremities, we roll Pearl Izumi's P.R.O. Barrier WxB Shoe Cover and we roll dry. These shoe covers incorporate P.R.O. Barrier WxB fabric on the outside and warm fleece on the inside, a combination that repels water and wind while keeping your feet delightfully cozy in temperatures dipping to 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

The P.R.O. Barrier's fit includes Pearl's two stage closure, which opens the covers nice and wide to get them on, and then seals them up for the snug fit you'd expect from shoe covers. The soles are reinforced for durability. And because standing out is crucial on rainy days, the wind- and water-resistant shells have reflective highlights to increase visibility to motorists in low-light conditions.

  • Protect your feet during inclement weather rides
  • P.R.O. Barrier WxB fabric blocks wind and water
  • Taped seams prevent moisture from leaking inside
  • Fleece lining for extra heat retention
  • Reflective elements increase visibility

my feet love these

    Sizing info: I used size XL with Shimano ME5 mtb shoes and with Bont Vapor road shoes, both size 44. On ME5s fit is quite tight, a bit of a struggle to put on. Bont fits just about right. They do a great job keeping my feet dry and warm commuting in Seattle winter rains. I haven't gotten into any true downpours yet but wearing 3/4 rain pants and no tights in light rain for over an hour things stayed dry.

    XL fits my size 12 foot

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

    I just got these shoe covers and they fit great - nice and snug. Hopefully I won't have to use them too much, but happy to have them in case!

    They work great if you understand...

      Pearl Izumi USA is based outside Boulder, Colorado. They know Winter cycling.

      Application: These are light-weight, medium-insulated, winter booties designed for keeping your feet warm while riding from 65° down to about 45/40° weather (with wool socks).

      PROS: Snug, aero, great looks, and great fit. These booties work GREAT in cold, dry conditions. They work well in moderately wet conditions.

      W x B means: W = waterproof. B = breathable.

      Cons: I usually prefer a rear or side zipper on booties. But the velcro opening here does allow for slightly easier mounting (and removal) of the bootie. Be careful when undoing the velcro strip, though, or it will rip.

      ***An important note about "rain-proof" booties: Although the material here is as "waterproof" as any textile can reasonably be, your socks WILL slowly get wet if you ride in a downpour long enough -like with ALL winter booties.

      (1.) In wet conditions, wheelspray from the front tire constantly shoots water up at your shoes from the bottom. So, tape any bottom vent holes in your shoes up with duct tape! (2.) When riding in the rain, the rain (and road spray) will soak the lower leg of your bibtights. If you tuck your bibtights into your winter booties, that water will travel down (via capillary action) to your socks, and then soak your feet. If riding on very wet roads: wear your tights (or rain pant leg) OVER your booties to direct the rain away.

      Sizing: Follow the size chart. I wear a 45 euro in Sidi and Shimano. The XL is the perfect size (right in the middle).

      Good luck! If you ride/train in the rain, you are pretty epic.

      Very articulate and helpful, extra points for "via capillary action". And the rec on pants over shoes, c'est magnifique!

      Very confortable!

        I use it in a wet centuty in dirty roads. It maintain my ferr clean, without mud or sand. Thais product is described as Water resistent, not waterproof, and it is exactly it. I live the way that it been close, You can adjust the pressure in your legs. I advice to buy one size up to avoid it been too much tight.

        Very confortable but is not waterproof

          I live it because its Very confortable and did a very good job protecting my shoes in a wet dirty road century. My socks veem wet, but my shoes fininho

          Shoe covers

          • Fit: True to size
          • Size Bought: xl

          They are really comfortable , perform and fit well.

          Dry Feet = Happy Feet

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size

          I like to tell myself I get wiser with experience. Probably a lie. I learned a few years ago that wet feet make for a miserable ride experience when it is cold out. I also learned that even though it looks more pro to have your tights tucked into your shoe covers, this lets tons of water in as well and even the nicest covers will leave your feet soaked. I paired these with some Amphib tights and made sure the tights went over the covers, dry happy feet.
          Personally I really like the Velcro closure and how much the back of these opens up. Better than my zippered pair from another brand, and easier installation.

          Not worth the price

            This is not a waterproof bootie as is claimed. Seams leaked on my first ride and toe does not want to stay in place over the shoe. Definitely not worth the price paid - sent back for refund

            Thanks for the comment
            I am not so sure about sizing. I have Shimano MTB shoes size 44 and I have chosen overshoes size L and they are definitely small!
