Winter road shoes for frosty rides
If you want to train outside, even in icy temperatures, you can't escape the fight against cold feet. The wind, wet and relative lack of movement in the foot quickly make for a frosty combination. Clipless shoes aggravate the situation further - as the cleats create a cold bridge. Whilst neoprene overshoes do a good job, these reach their limits when it gets really cold. This is where special winter clipless pedal shoes for road bike pedals come in. These are usually well insulated, higher cut, windproof and some are even waterproof. They offer the usual performance feel of good road cycling shoes and can significantly extend your cycling season.
