C5 Gore Windstopper Insulated Overshoes
When temperatures threaten to make your toes shy away from your bike shoes and seek out their fuzzy slippers, entice them onto your bike with the help of the Gore Wear C5 Gore Windstopper Insulated Overshoes. PrimaLoft Silver provides insulation even in damp conditions, without adding bulk to keep you from moving freely. The fabric resists moisture as you pedal through melting conditions, and the cuffs feature elastic seals to prevent drafts from sneaking in. These shoes feature a full zip so that you can slide your bike shoe straight in, and a contoured sole that fits neatly around cleats. The external fabric is reinforced at the toes and sole to help them stand up to abrasion—extending their life, and therefore, your comfort.

- Q & A
Warm AND Dry!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XXL
I have used these for the worst weather ( temps in the single digits, snow, rain, mud.) They get wet, but only after 2 hours of steady rain. I use them over the softer Gore booties on the worst days. They fit over my size 47 mtn. bike shoes. They have held up well for 6 or 7 winters in Northern New England.
DO NOT RECOMMEND. RUN very large.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These shoe covers are warm and very well constructed. I was impressed by the very sturdy sole and toe, hoping that they will last more than a season. But they run VERY BIG. I got a size to my exact cycling shoe size, and they were still way too big in the heel. I took a sturdy needle and coat thread and sewed a couple of darts in the heels. They now fit better, but they are quite baggy and unattractive. I do not recommend them. GORE makes another shoe cover that is lined in thick fleece that is much better, better fitting, and better looking.
