We love our Planet Bike Dasher Toe Covers for chilly days, but long for more warmth and wind protection for the rest of our feet on downright cold rides. The next step in comfort for winter weather is the Planet Bike Blitzen Shoe Cover. Featuring a windproof fabric with microfleece lining these covers are downright warm. A neoprene front panel adds extra warmth around the toe box while a durable open bottom design accommodates a variety of pedal platforms and cleats.
Full Velcro back closure for greater adjustability and sizing
Toe box retention strap keeps front of cover in place
Reflective side logos

Warm enough to about 32 degrees F for couple hours. Below that or if very windy I wear them over a pair of Castelli booties as they are looser fitting (2.5 hour ride yesterday - 33 degrees F - very windy - no problem). Sizing chart is accurate lengthwise but they run a bit loose at the arch & wide at ball of the foot area (reason I can wear them over other booties). Easy on & off as thickest part of material is around the foot itself and not around the heel or up the ankle. Occasionally front of cleat opening interferes with with entry into Look pedals and I just have to pull bootie forward & then I'm OK. Velcro closure works well (zippers always seem to break).
Summed up: Far from the sexiest bootie out there but keeps me warmer than other high price booties I've owned.
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Best shoe cover ever used. Easy on - off
complete coverage great weather resistance etc. and average wear.
(the velcro panel stitching is subpar)
Order these huge! XXXlrg for 45's
XL for anything smaller. These do not stretch to fit.
I've used these covers this winter in Boone, NC. I commute every day. Rain, freezing fog, snow, and minus wind chills, no problems. No quality issues.
Very smooth shopping experience,
Thanks, Tree Fort.
