Rated 4 out of 5 Thick and warm
Great for winter use. Not completely water proof, but close enough.
If handled with care, a pair can last an entire winter season.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wolfinthewind be careful how you fit them
these are good over boots , but be careful you fit them right and they stay in place . first time out my feet where warmer and its was colder, the only problem was when i got back and found they had a hole on the back side inner part of the heel . second time i checked and recheck the positon and all fine , its a battle to get them on but you do want a tight fit . its not a find your thinest socks but wear normal layers and dont worry about over heating the cold finds the gap around your cleats and mud does to .
dont get me wrong they do get you out there on the cold cold days , which you need to do to keep your fitness up but you need to dress for toastie toes!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gav2020 Changed how I look at winter riding
Normally I don't review products but felt compelled to given how impressed I have been.
Was heading out this morning just as the Royal Mail van came with the covers, put them on straight away and took them out for a test. Ground is soaked right now and it was 3 degrees and heavy rain, normally my feet are numb and wet before I've even hit the trails.
With the Endura covers on, feet were kept warm and dry over a 3 hour ride through proper winter conditions. I was purposefully hitting floods to give them a test as well. This made a massive difference to the overall enjoyment of riding when the weather is bad. I even jethosed them while still wearing them after the ride and they held their own fine. Feet were so warm that when I took them out of the shoes/covers they were steaming away!
Bonus is you can just stick the covers through the wash and keep the shoes nice and clean. As others have said, take note that the sizing is generally one size too small. I initially bought a Large (I'm a UK 10.5), had to send them back and opt for XL which fit well.
Great product though, extremely impressed and would recommend it to anyone. I know longer care if its wet/cold so can ride happily all year round.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jon73 Sizing small, Need practice to get on. Very warm and waterproof.
I bought the next size up as recomended by other reviews. They are very hard to fit over your shoes when they are on your feet. It's a lot easier getting the front of your shoe into the overshoe before slipping your feet in. After that it is plain sailing. They are very warm and I have to wear thinner socks to stop overheating. Even when rinsing of with a hosepipe my feet don't get wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 80Nine Strong and resilient
These really do keep your feet warm and dry. mud and water can get in through the holes in the sole if you tread through mud, but if you keep out of it, no problem.
They are very well built and comfortable, however the stitching around the cleat holes did start getting damaged after the first use, but I was walking quite a lot on paved surfaces though. Still hasn't affected their performance.
I would appreciate an overshoe that had a complete rubber sole instead of cut-outs, but in their absence, these are very suitable alternatives.

Очень качественные и хорошие боты! резиновый нос заметно помогает сцепиться с землёй на поворотах.Светоотражающие элементы делают поездку более безопасной на дороге. Тёплые и в то же время недают ноге вспотеть как при -20 так и +15. В них можно ездить везде.

Rated 4 out of 5 by James68 Good kit
Bought these for the Monster Miles event in October, performed as they were meant to, just get a size bigger when ordering, otherwise they did 100 km first time out without any issues, kept feet warm and dry. Excellent

Rated 5 out of 5 by MountainSnail Nice clean dry shoes
Winter is back and I picked up my cycling shoes during the week and they were still wet from my weekend outing - time to start wearing overshoes again.
I got a new pair of the MT500's from CRC, this is my 3rd pair, and have noticed that there were a lot of complaints relating to them being to small and not fitting over shoes.
I wear a pair of Shimano MW81 Winter Boots in a size 45 so I ordered a pair of XL overshoes for them. It is a tight fit to get the overshoes on to the boots, however, that is the way it should be - the last thing you need is a loose overshoe flapping around while you're trying to concentrate on a muddy trail with your rear wheel fish-tailing all over the place.

im size 41 or seven and i use the medium ,i have a plastic size 42 shoe and a more fabric based size 41 shoe . the medium size feets the larger shoe easier as it slips over the plastic well . the medium size fits 7 to 8.5 so i imagine the large will be 8.5 to 10 , if you have plastic or smooth shoe then try large if more fabric then go xl . they are a very tight fit (which you want) and if not fitted fully around the heel they will come in to contact with the crank and instantly wear a hole . this happened to me first time out but it was my incorrect fitting that caused the damage.
