velotoze shoe covers

Not sure if these have been discussed here previously: http://www.velotoze.com

I bought a pair of large / long covers in green colorway. Shipping was fast. I rode with the covers for the first time today on a fenderless cross bike. While it wasn't raining, it was very wet out.

The good:
They worked great and kept my feet dry. They also kept me very warm, to the extent I could take my jacket off. I wore long socks underneath pulled up to just below the top of the covers and experienced no unbearable grossness on a ~2hr ride. Fit was good over 44.5 Sidi Genius shoes.

The meh:
I can't tell if $15 is a good price since I haven't worn through a pair yet. The longs are pretty long but I'm sure you could cut them down. I think as they stretch they will discolor slightly so light colors might be better there. Based on how the cover fits your shoe, there may be a bit of rubber that interferes between the cleat and pedal. This didn't cause a problem for me but I could feel it.

The bad:
They suck to put on and you need to be careful while doing so. They only come in latex (allergy alert). People will stare at you (maybe good?)

Overall, I'm happy with them and my dry feet. Would buy again.

You can turn them inside out. This displaces the extra ring around the cleat, but isn’t really a problem.

I’m running the medium (40-42.5) and 44 2/3 Giro SLX shoes, and that fit isn’t really a problem, but I will probably size up to my proper size next time.

I’ve already punched a hole in the bottom, walking by a creek cuz I get into shenanigans.

I haven’t tried sharpie yet but that’s a possibility.

Protip: Shipping is flat until 9 units, if you are international.

They will also do custom logos. I don't know the minimum though.
