Beauty is afoot.
Soggy, frigid feet are one of the ugliest aspects of staying in the saddle through winter. Castelli's Narcisista All-Road Shoecover cures these ills with the simple beauty of a classic 3-layer softshell membrane that enjoys a waterproof rating of 15,000mm. That translates to feet that will stay dry in all but the most monsoon-y of downpours, and the waterproof YKK zipper eliminates the one possible point of watery ingress.
The sole is designed to snugly accommodate cleats, helping to eliminate any weak points on the underbelly, and a reflective stripe down the back helps boost visibility on the chilly, overcast, drizzly days when the Narcisista's protection is most needed.

- Q & A
Not compatible with shimano pedals
The opening for the cleat was smaller than the pedal, so it was impossible to clip in while wearing these shoe covers.
Perfect for Georgia winters
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Winter cycling is not too bad here in southern Georgia-most days are 50+ and these shoe covers are perfect for those chilly days. Not too thick and fits over shoe snugly (be sure to check size chart-I wear 45 shoe and XL is perfect). Zipper is a little awkward to get to but overall a good product. I've got one winter season on them and they still look new.
True to size! True to size!
Was shopping for a pair of shoecovers and read many reviews on other covers that sizes have run small and to size up.
I wear Sidi 42 and ordered Medium as per CC's size chart (41-42 is Medium)
Happy to report that its a perfect fit. Not too snug and not too loose. The velcro and the elastic bands were placed in the right places clearing the Sidi's sole.
The only issue is the placement of the zipper on the outside, its definitely hard to zip up. Material appears to be sufficient for above freezing temps.. Doesnt look like it will be sufficient for below freezing.
Entire cover appears to be well constructed save for the zipper.. Hopefully will get a good season or two out of it.
