Rated 1 out of 5 by Just2Gnarly Hesitate 2 Order (H2O)
Picked the biggest size and they fit my size 48 Shimano shoe like a glove and slide on and off comfortably in the morning......HOWEVER. I ride a 25 minute commute and my first Monday after getting them they were tested in a good old Scottish down pour. EPIC FAIL! My ankle and heel stayed dry however upper parts of the foot down to the toes were wet. On taking them off I found the inside of the top part of the overshoe to be complete porous. Had to dry them out! The next day I got to test them in dense fog. They worked well in that. The next day after that it was freezing cold and they provided extra insulation. In summary they provide protection from a light spray of H2O and work well as light foot gloves for additional heat. But they become completely permeable in anything more than a light spray although they do keep half you sock dry from ankle to heel.

Great design, comfortable to wear / off, have a high water resistance - it is checked. Size "M" (medium) ideal for Sidi shoes size 43.

Great for autumn/spring rides with light rain/drizzle. Rain can run down leg and into shoes but otherwise very warm and dry. Tip to clean chain oil off the white ones - use WD40. Washes up well in washing machine too. One of my best buys

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Look great but cuff is too loose
Fabulous looking overshoes!! Material is really nice, graphics are sharp. Details in manufacture are there as well, such as taping of the seams. Major problem though, not everyone with size 45 feet has fat ankles. I can't even blame it on skinny calves because the overshoes don't go high enough to reach my calves. Perhaps they were designed for short, stocky fellows with big feet? As they are now, being waterproof is a moot point as they're likely to fill up like wellies. I'm now left with finding a way to stitch up the cuff to make them tighter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great overshoe
Not the easiest overshoe to put on - but not the hardest either. It'll keep your feet warm - and so far have kept mine dry (although nothing more than light drizzle and wet roads so far).
Perhaps the best thing about this overshoe, is that it has a reinforced toe area so walking in them won't tear them. Seams are taped on the inside too to help keep the water out and make them a little tougher. OK, the cuff around your calf is not as snug as some others but it's not a problem.
Overall it's a quality product - but then you would expct that from pro - which is an offshoot of Shimano
