If you want to squeeze every ounce of aerodynamics out of your kit for your Tuesday night time trial series, one cheap and cheerful addition to your wardrobe is a pair of the Giordana Lycra Shoe Covers. The buckles and mesh of your shoes probably serve multiple design purposes, but normally aerodynamics is not one of them. With these covers you can keep your feet smooth in the wind without having to worry about adding any overheating issues.
Made from straightforward, uninsulated stretchy lycra, these covers are designed to fit snugly around your foot. A zipper has been provided at the back, though, so you won't have to struggle getting them on and off -- putting on your booties should never be more tiring than the race itself! A hole has been provided for the cleats to poke through, and a hole is also where your shoes' heel pads will sit, so that you won't be treading through the fabric unnecessarily.
The Giordana Lycra Shoe Covers come in Black, Red, and White and include a handsome picture of the Giordana archer and script on the side. They are available in Small through X-Large.
It sure was nice the first cool weather riding this year to have warm piggies when I got home!! Love the Giordana shoecovers. Easy to put on / take off. Very wearable...
Sorry about the funky size chart!
The sizing is (per euro shoe size):
thought these might be a little better than my old Pearl Izumi wind covers NOPE, the zipper digs into the back of my ankle, wore them twice so far and already have a hole starting on the heel, save your money and use and old sock or you might try the Casteli slip on shoe covers that I bought for my wife
I bought these for my boyfriend as a present and though we love most of the goods that giordana makes, it was not the case with these. he tried them and the zipper dug into the top of his heel because there is no protective flap.
