I treat overshoes as disposable items, a pair usually lasting a couple of years. So I don't like to pay huge amounts for them. The price of these Craft overshoes was the first thing that attracted me. Equally, I like close fitting overshoes rather than the 'rubber banded plastic bag' look of many. So Craft scored there for me too. Normally, I wear neoprene overshoes (I don't mind wet feet so long as they are warm!) but I like to try alternatives. I took note of the size comments of others (rather than the size guide) and ordered an L for my (Shimano) size 42 feet.
The fit is spot on for me. You wouldn't want to go smaller but they are the snug fit that I like. Sure, you do have to spend a little bit of time getting them 'just so' (they don't just slip on) but it's worth it.
Most importantly, they work. I've just ridden an hour in the pouring rain and my shoes, socks and feet are dry. And that's what you want isn't it? (Note; I was wearing bib tights and layered them over the ankle of the overshoes. All overshoes will let water in around the top!) Feet were warm too though I've yet to ride in really cold weather. I suspect neoprene will be warmer in cold conditions.
The construction looks solid. I like the reinforced toe area, it could mean an extended life. Ime, all overshoes rip over time, particularly the soul, but the reinforced areas of the Craft ones gives me hope... perhaps they'll do better than 2 years!
For the price, these are an excellent overshoe. Recommended.
