    Details

    Prepare for the flood.

    Most people take the day off when it's dumping rain, sleeting, or being generally miserable, but you're not most people, and the Castelli Diluvio 16 Shoe Cover isn't some wimpy layer. It's a waterproof, windproof, and surprisingly warm neoprene cover, with thermosealed seams and a high 16mm cuff to seal out the elements, even when they're banging down the door. A hook-and-loop closure makes it easy to get on and off, and cleat and heel cutouts allow easy walking.

    Good for winter riding and training

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

    I've used these shoe covers all last winter, and for the first half of this winter. I commute daily, and also am a road bike racer - they have served well for all my needs, and I would recommend them.

    Classic winter booties

      Castelli is based in the foothills of the Italian Alps (Dolomites); they understand Winter cycling.

      These booties are great for cold weather cycling and will keep your feet warm down to about 35° F (with quality wool socks and bibtights of course).

      Main points:
      1.) The 16 cm height is for warmth (and looks). Neoprene is water-resistant and the central seam is thermosealed. Nice.
      2.) These also feature a waterproof zipper and zipper garage. The zipper garage keeps the zipper from flopping up & down on each pedal stroke (and from snagging on your tights). Hi-viz strip down back.
      3.) On really long, wet rides, these will eventually "wet through" but your feet will stay warm (like when using a wetsuit in the ocean).

      Tip #1 for riding in the rain: If you need *total* rain-proofness (not sure it exists) wear a +1 size Velotoze over these.

      Tip #2 for riding in the rain: Water spray from the front wheel can work its way up through the vent holes in the bottom of road shoes (if your shoes have them). Tape those vents up with duct tape on wet days or your socks will get soaked from the bottom.

      Tip #3 for riding in the rain: During dry cold rides, everyone tucks their bibtights into their booties of course. On long rainy rides, however, I recommend wearing your bibtights -over- your booties. Otherwise rain will eventually seep down your bibtight fabric to your socks and soak your feet. Cold, wet, feet are awful.

      36-40: SM/MD
      41-44: L/XL
      45-48: XXL

      Toasty

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The Diluvio 16's are nice and tall shoe covers that provide plenty of warmth in freezing weather. They also keep the rain out in soggy conditions. The only downside, they do not breath extremely well. So your feet may be a bit sweaty at the end of your ride.

      Castelli Diluvio 16 shoe covers

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Had high hopes for these shoe covers. After about 5-7 rides wear holes appeared in the base of the shoe covers which have continued to get bigger with each subsequent use. Very disappointed in the build quality of this product and had hoped for better from Castelli. At least they look good

      Tore hole in nose

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

      Size chart lists L and XL bit pruduct comes L/XL. I wear sixe 11 so it should have fit even though on the outer limit. Exchangingfor XXL. Last pair was great but stolen via car break in.
