Light up the roads.
Sugoi is known for making sure that you remain fully-protected from the elements through its extensive accessory line, and the new Zap Shoe Covers take this concept one step further. With the Zaps, you get the same foul-weather foot and ankle coverage as with Sugoi's other covers, but you also receive an extensive reflective paneling design that stresses visibility in low-light conditions.
Sugoi constructed the Zap Shoe Covers from a foot- and ankle-conforming two-ply stretch laminate. The composition of this stretchy material works to repel water, mud, and wind as you make that daily commute, ensuring that your feet stay protected from the elements. The outer-layer of this fabric is reflective polyurethane, which works to effectively repel rain and wheel spray, as well as to keep you seen by motorists in low-light riding conditions.
Finishing details of the shoe covers include offset side zippers that eliminate Achilles tendon pressure, as well as an open bottom design that works with a variety of cycling shoes. A single hook-and-loop strap provides a secure fit across the sole.
The Sugoi Zap Shoe Covers are available in four sizes from Small to X-Large and in the Reflective colorway.

- Q & A
Stitching, Zipper and Sole Strap Trouble
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Size Bought: Large
I bought a pair of these (not from CC) and used them about a half dozen times. Good snug and aero fit. But then stitching started to come undone along several seams, the zipper broke at the base (I could slip it back on but with major difficulty...and it kept slipping off) and the bottom sole strap frayed to a point of disintegrating. Wouldn't recommend at all.
Do these have the micro-glass beads like the new Zap jacket (http://www.competitivecyclist.com/sugoi-zap-bike-jacket-mens) ?
No they do not, this is just one large reflective surface. the pixel fabric on the Zap jacket allows it to only be reflective when hit by low light but stay hidden in day, on the ZAP Bootie its reflective at all times. Hope this helps!
