Great shoe/boot

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I've been riding in the winter with a regular road shoe and insulated shoe cover which has developed holes in the toes and heels after one year. I was going to replace the insulated shoe covers with a new pair when I found these.

So far I love these and now I have a summer pair of shoes and winter pair of shoes/boots. Compared with using an insulated shoe cover (getting shoes on & off with the cover) these are a breeze to get on & off. The inside shoe has a lock lace system and the outside has a simple front zipper and two velcro straps. Pretty easy for a shoe/boot and much easier than a shoe cover.

Also there are no open spots for wind and rain to get in to my feet. I'm very happy with these.

Just what I was looking for

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Cons: a little heavy, effort to put on.

Pros: very comfortable fit and warm.

I wanted a road shoe for cold wet rides and that's what this is. Agree with some other reviewers that it's not the easiest to put on or take off--think snowboard boot rather than typical cycling shoe. But really, I'm willing to spend an extra 30 seconds for warm dry feet.

The other thing I really like is the fit. I take a wide toe box in shoes (Keens, etc) and that can be tough to find in cycling shoes. For my feet, these are very comfortable without being sloppy.

I haven't taken them out in a downpour yet so I don't have feedback on waterproofness.

Nice shoe for the winter.

    I have tried shoe covers until I am blue in the toes. This Glacier is not as useful alone, as it is with adjustments. I purchased a pair of felt/wool inserts and trimmed them to fit in the bottom of the boot. It does take some work the first 3 or 4 times putting these boots on until learning the best way of getting your foot into the snug surroundings. I also found a couple of velcro strips to place onto the velco closures on the boot, so the velcro does not pull on any part of the shoe as I am removing the shoe. I would recommend these for riding in the winter with -temps down to 25 degrees-with the felt inserts. One may have to buy just a size larger to have room for whatever other thickness of wool socks or items inside the boot.

    Not really impressive...but

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I got a closeout deal on these - 50% off so it makes me feel better that they are a bit of a pain in the ass to put on. They have textured heel cups so puling them off isn't too bad if your hands aren't too wet. They feel a bit sloppy inside, but perhaps that's because I'm used to being able to crank down my MTB shoes and road shoes with ratchets. This has a single pull and cord lock and it's only OK. So far they have kept me dry and pretty warm so I can't complain.

    Might work as a road shoe

    • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

    -The size seems good. I bought a half size up and that's about how they fit, which is good because I wanted room for extra socks.

    -They are a PITA to get on. You have to open the Velcro, unzip them under the Velcro and then get your foot into an inner shoe. I'm sure I'll get use to it but it could be better.

    -The 2 bolt cleats are not below flush like most mountain biking shoes. So even though they are 2 bolt cleat compatible they aren't really made for it.

    - My biggest gripe - The tread is a road shoe tread with NOTHING to grip in snow. No lugs. These are not boots, they are insulated road shoes.

    I ended up returning these and buying the Ergo Grip Shoes from Backcountry which are almost identical but in a mountain style. I wish I had seen them first. The RD shoe would be good for road use with no snow but if you have mountain cleats you should get the Ergo Grips. (or course I haven't seen those yet.)

    Probably the worst shoe that I have ever tried to put on !

      I would have given it a minus rating but didn't have that option. You couldn't hardly put them on in the house with just the right stool & were it's warm; I don't think that you could out in the cold.
      I really can't believe that they built this shoe & actually put it out on the market !! if they said that they would give it away I would pay them to keep it.
