As recently as the late 1980's, professional road cyclists would wear a pair of socks over their shoes while racing and training. If asked why they did this, they would answer "It's warmer, more aerodynamic, keeps my shoes cleaner, looks better, and it makes me faster." Of course, one could argue that putting cotton socks over cycling shoes makes none of those possible. DeFeet crafted a solution that actually keeps windchill off the feet, creates smoother lines, keeps dirt out, looks better, and ultimately makes riders faster. Slipstream's also last much longer than a pair of socks while barely costing more. Pay homage to the classic era of cycling, wear Slipstreams and go faster.
These are great on the trail to keep the wind off the toes. Combined with a quality wool sock, these have kept my feet comfortable at down to 25 degrees. Haven't had the opportunity to go colder due to being the NC. Not waterproof, so don't but expecting that feature. Probably would not be ideal for the high winds on a road bike.
these are very functional. Having ridden for 3 decades in all kinds of weather, keeping the feet/hands and head warm are key. These will not keep you feet dry, but they will keep them warm on a cold dry ride. Easy to use and setup for any pedal system! Just cut a hole to conform the the cleat.
PROS: Dries Quickly, Durable
BEST USES: Cold Weather, Road Biking, Mountain Biking
