Anyone who has ever had a case of cold feet during a ride will appreciate a winter cycling shoe. Winter shoes increase your options. Some riders find they can use a winter shoe alone and eliminate cold feet with having to go to a shoecover or bootie. Others who struggle with poor circulation or frigid temperatures combine winter shoes with an insulated shoecover for maximum warmth.
Mavic Drift Winter Mountain Shoe will keep you warm and dry on the coldest trails or commutes with a bevy of features at a very reasonable price. Waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex keeps out the water while letting perspiration escape. A neoprene ankle gusset provides the extra measure required for complete protection from moisture. Mavic uses a Terra Grip lugged sole for excellent, non-slip traction on a variety of surfaces.
After reading the above I guess sizing is different between brands and without trying them on good luck! I did and went with my street shoe size and they are working out great this winter. I've worn them on 50 deg days without swamp foot and on 20 degree days without numb toes. I'd say they're getting it done. There was a pinch at the medial side of my foot near the top strap, throwing in my other insoles fixed that. overall good shoe
I was glad to see these shoes came in half sizes. The problem I usually have with winter cycling shoes is that they don't allow for the insulation and the shoes are too small. I usually wear a 10 so I ordered two pairs, one 10 and one 10.5, figured one size would work, return the other. Only problem is the 10 and the 10.5 are exactly the same length and width, the removable insole has the same size stamped on it. The only difference in size is the toe box and instep is taller on the 10.5. Pretty much useless, returned both.
Pros: Well made shoe.
Cons: Sizing for the 10-10.5 is usueless.
