Toe Thingy 2

Give your toes a little relief from icy winds without the hassle of full blown shoe covers in the Castelli Toe Thingy 2. Much like their predecessors, these handy covers slide neatly over your toes, securing around your cleat with a rubberized fabric for surefooted grip, without the excessive warmth of booties that leaves you with a case of hot-foot. Instead of giving full foot insulation, the Toe Thingy 2 gives coverage just where its needed, providing a nice barrier between your little piggies and the cold, whipping wind outside.

Castelli's Toe Thingy is made from durable neoprene fabric. This material not only provides insulating warmth, but it also blocks water and wind on the most sensitive part of the foot—the toes. The Toe Thingy is secured to the shoe by an aperture that encompasses the cleat, and to resist rips, tears, and general wear, Castelli included a silicone print on the Toe Thingy's underside. For versatility, Castelli recommends using the cover alone on mild days, and as a layer between your shoe and full shoe cover during nasty weather.

Improved over older version

I really liked the older version of these, and finally had to replace them after a few years. I don't need them that often - I typically use them from about 38-48 degrees, altering my socks to fine tune. Compared to the older version, these seem more reinforced on the bottom, but you are going to wear through them eventually from putting your foot down and up (especially near the top underneath). Unless you never put your foot down, and I say good on you for that! BUT - these have a little tweak from the older version in logo placement. Now there is not a right foot/left foot thingy - they are interchangeable. When you start to wear out your down foot side, just switch it to the other side and you have a nice new, unworn one on your down foot. They are super easy to take on and off. Nice improvement to a staple in my cooler cycling wardrobe.

Great for Cool Weather in Phoenix

These are great for crisp mornings in Phoenix. Pros: Kept my toes nice and warm down to 50 degrees. Neoprene is nice and stretchy; love the color for visibility. Cons: Won't keep feet warm below 50; since they pull over toes, with my Sidi shoes and release system, can be challenging to adjust fitting once covers are on.

Just No.

Regret spending the money for these thingys. Rode for three hours today in mild conditions (high 40's an light rain). Toes were cold and wet by the end. Really no idea what these are for. Will look for winter shoes instead. At least they appear to be built nice.

Fit over my MTB shoes

I love the yellow for road rides, and they fit over my MTB shoes just fine. Granted my shoes aren't huge, but the stretch accommodates the tread just fine.

Eh

Love Castelli but didn’t find these kept my toes warm on high 40s and breezy days.

Essential kit for roadies

Awesome for keeping your toes warm while riding from 60° down to about 50/45° F (depending upon your cold sensitivity). Pros: Warm, insulating material (neoprene) is highly effective. And they are super stretchy, so they are very easy to get on and off. Much easier than booties! And you can easily stuff them in your rear jersey pocket on an early morning ride if the temp warms up. Cons: Even though ver 2 has been reinforced on the bottom, the bottoms will wear out or cut if you walk on rocks or gravel; so I don't do that. Not for MTB use.
