    A breathable WindStopper.

    While some retreat to indoor trainers or skinny skis during the off season, there's a select bunch of die hard riders that won't give up two wheels and fresh air. For that frosty contingent, Gore Bike Wear offers the Road SO Thermo OverShoes. Not only do these shoe covers offer wind protection, they have thermal properties to keep you comfortably spinning pedals in sub-freezing temps.

    A thermal lining retains heat for comfort, and it also pulls perspiration from your socks to help prevent clamminess against the skin. From there, moisture is pushed to through the WindStopper membrane where it's quickly evaporated. The beauty of WindStopper is its unique ability to allow perspiration to escape while stopping cold wind in its tracks. This combination of warmth and wind resistance gives you the ability to use highly breathable, summer-optimized shoes in the dead of winter.

    For durability, Gore equips the Road SO Thermo Overshoe with abrasion resistant materials in key areas such as the pedal/sole interface and along the toebox. A rear entry zip make pulling these Overshoes on struggle free, and a hook-and-loop ankle strap ensures you can lock the weather out. As a winter layer, Gore hits the Road SO Thermo Overshoe with plenty of reflective elements for low light safety.

    The Gore Bike Wear Road SO Thermo OverShoe comes in five sizes; Small through X-Large and two colors; either Neon Yellow or Black.

    Overshoes for the worst temps

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I made a commitment mentally and with my wallet this winter to keep on riding when it gets in the 30s and even into the 20s if necessary. Plus this winter I am riding several nights a week because the sun goes down way too early in Alabama. I did a ride one day at about 30F, windy with a chill factor of 21F (god knows what it as once you hit 15mph) using some fairly inexpensive LG neoprene overshoes (with appropriate thermal head covering and neck gaiter, Giordana FormaRed Carbon jacket & Giordana Roubaix thermal big tights) so not having enough for a warm core was not an issue. My feet got very uncomfortably cold and I am hot natured. So I read the reviews on this set up, the price was right and I squeezed the trigger on it. Huge difference in the ability to keep my feet comfortably warm in the same conditions with the same kit described. At the same time, these are somewhat clunky overshoes, they are pretty big but you need that pile loft to not freeze your toes off. They are not the prettiest overshoes (again look a little clunky) and don't fit the neatest around the shoe but who cares because my feet are warm and I am riding outside rather than on an indoor trainer which is something I absolutely detest. I get to ride with warm feet on days so cold for here that I am pretty much the only cyclist I see out riding. Works for me. I wear an 11 shoe and bought the size that has that in its range.

    Wow, what a product

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: 12

    This is my first year doing some serious winter bike riding. So I decided to go all out on Wind Stopper Gore bike Wear. I bought the XXL Oxygen Soft Shell Jacket, the XL Oxygen Soft Shell Bibs, the road Over Shoes, thermo gloves, A Castelli WS Balaclava, with Castelli Venti wool socks. Well let me tell you. Its was 12 degrees outside here in North Massapequa, NY but after my 11 mile ride, I was still nice and toasty with just an Under Armour under my jacket and a set of leggings. Had to wear a set of goggle because my eyes tear with the slightest bit of cold wind. My wife said I was crazy, but I wanted to test this stuff out in the worst temperature I have ever ridden. I love the cold and this proved to be the best investment I have ever bought in bike gear. I certainly can say, I love it.. I wear a size 12 and it was perfect

    Nice overshoes

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

    I've only worn these once so far, but like them much better than my various other neoprene booties. I wear Sidis, size 44.5, and Large fits nicely. The windstopper is awesome, warmer than neoprene, and the Neon Yellow is highly visible. They're quite large though -- almost boatlike -- if you're used to tight-fitting booties. I'll be wearing these in future any time the temperature drops into the 40s or below, and my feet will thank me. My only quibble is that the fit is slightly loose on the front of one of the booties and I think they could be tighter; they're well made though and look like they'll last a long time.

    Great for cold weather riding

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

    Keep my feet warm and comfortable in temps ranging from 25F to 40F, over my Sidi road shoes and light merino wool socks, on mostly two-hour rides. They'd probably be too warm above 40F. These are one of those items that I wish I'd bought sooner.

    Not so great for riding in SNOW

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

    Excellent quality and construction...really happy with how these shoe covers feel and the warmth they provide. HOWEVER, They're not great for riding a FATBIKE in the snow. The toe continues to slip up over the shoe and does not stay down if you ever have to hike a bike, which happens a lot on a FATBIKE. Furthermore, the sides tend to pack with snow. I wear a size 10 shoe and the size bootie I got was the 9-10.5 size. I'll keep them for riding in Early Spring road rides but these are not ideal for riding in the snow.

    Work great in low temps and high winds

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

    I purchased these overshoes because the description and reviews were the only ones I found that mentioned actual temperatures or describe conditions similar to those I typically encounter. I wear a 41 shoe with a ratchet closure, which is the upper limit for medium, but the overshoes fit well and are easy to put on. As other reviews have noted, they look bulky, but they do their job. I've typically worn them when the temperature is around freezing or high 30's when there is wind, and my feet have stayed warm for the entire ride. My coldest ride so far was 19 degrees F with 20-30 mph north winds and a wind chill around 3-5F. After an hour and a half, my feet were getting cold, but not uncomfortable, with wool socks on, and I finished my ride without any problems. I later discovered that the soles of my bike shoes are well ventilated, which undoubtedly caused significant heat loss. Under the same conditions last winter, I was lucky to last 30 minutes without overshoes, and my toes were numb by the time I made it home.

    Your feet will never be cold again!

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

    immediate difference with the comfort of my rides with warm feet! They block out the wind completely and was better able to feel my pedaling again without cold painful feet! was even able to wear less layers on top because my heat wasn't escaping through my feet.

    No More Numbness!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9.0-10.5

    After several rides in sub-40F temps throughout December and January, I figured it was time to get some overshoes. Previously, I was simply wearing thicker merino socks, and my feet would go numb after an hour of riding. Deciding to overcome this discomfort, I bought these, and matching GBW Universal WS Thermo gloves (GBW004K). Both my toes and my fingers stay warm throughout the ride. In neon, these overshoes provide excellent visibility, especially since the sun rises late and sets early in the winter. I wear a Mavic 42 2/3 size shoe (US 9) and these fit well.

    Bulky

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    I wear a 41 or 9.5 in women specialized shoes and i ordered a medium which fit with adequate room for a larger size shoe. Overall they are bulky, but have great insulation. I live in the South which does not require something this thick for the majority of the winter. In case anyone was wondering the entire bottom of the sole is out with a band around the middle to keep shoe attached.

    Fantastic

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Was surprised at how warm these turned out to be, given that they're actually pretty lightweight and not that thick. The wind will never get through theses, same with the wet and cold. Gore-Tex is the best material available for keep the nasty out, but allowing you to breathe. The velcro is exceptionally strong and I expect these to last a few winters. Fit was true to size.

    Winter Biking

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    I have used these twice. As it gets colder, the wind can make your feet cold when riding long distances and these have made a huge difference. My feet do not get cold or numb when wearing. They are a little bulky and look funny, but allow you to get out on your bike in the cold weather without being elected by the elements. I would buy again.

    Workhorse of an overshoe!

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

    My feet seem to almost always get cold when I ride if the temp is below 50 degrees. Thankfully that is now a thing of the past. These overshoes from Gore work perfectly between 25-50 degrees. The windproofness is perfect, the durability is unmatched, and although they are not water proof they work quite well against the occasional splash of mud/water when I use them on the mountain bike. I recommend this overshoe to anyone that rides in cold temps and needs to keep they're feet dry and warm.

    Worth Their Weight in Gold!

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

    Yellow gold, that is. I'm talking neon, eyeball-searing yellow! These overshoes allow me to continue cycling all winter (I live at 8,000 ft in the Rocky Mountains with frequent daily highs well below freezing). They are warm, easy to fit over bulky mountain biking shoes, and the color keeps me visible. They fold up small enough to fit in a medium-seat bag or even a jersey pocket (though making for a somewhat lumpy profile). Caution: if you buy these you'll have no more excuses for not getting out on your bike.

    Unanswered Question

    Hi. Will the Large fit at European size 44.5 or would you move up to the XL. That seems like it would be too much. Thanks for your help.

    I have a pair of the "hard shell" thermo over shoes. I wear a sock over my shoe but under the overshoe & I'm good down to -5 for sure, and usually good down to -10/-13C. But the hardshells dont look like they'll work on a MTB sole, how do these do on a MTB cleated sole???

    The only issue you would have with a mtn shoe is with the coverage in the front of the shoe. The material would go over the front part of your tread. A couple others to look at might be the Louis Garneau Bimax Shoe Covers Item # LGN0959 or Louis Garneau Neo Protect II Shoes Cover Item # LGN003T, the bottom will fit a mountain shoe a lot better.

    Are these waterproof?

    Are these waterproof?

    Great Question



    These booties are highly water resistant and windproof Windstopper(R). They are not considered waterproof because they are not seam tapped, but the Windstopper membrane is in essence waterproof. Be confident that with the windstopper membrane and the DWR finish these will keep you warm and dry in all but the wettest conditions!



    I am the Gore rep so feel free to reach out if you have any other questions on these.

    can these go over street shoes too?
