The Castelli Pioggia 3 shoe cover is a moderate to thin polyurethane-coated shoe cover designed to keep out cold and damp weather. Waterproofing is enhanced with a welded, waterproof zipper and a Nano Flex closure at the ankle.
The Pioggia shoe cover has been improved and updated with more stretch in the fabric, better waterproofing, and a light layer of fleece on the inside to make the bootie even warmer. It comes up higher on the ankle for even more protection.
Tear in the sole first ride and in the toe second ride. The above review is correct......great looking but NOT durable. As for the warmth, they are all that I need for temps >30 degrees and are easy to get on/off.
Pros: Looks, function
Tears in the shoe covers literally started occurring after 3 rides. Very poor quality. I eventually had to buy new booties from another company. I estimate the shoe covers would only last 1/2 winter, instead of 2 winters most shoe covers last.
Pros: Looks good
Cons: Poor quality
Like most Castelli products, the white shoe covers looked great initially. How stylish. Like many Castelli products, they are cheap. After three rides, small tears began appearing on both covers. Within a week, the covers were covered in 1-2 inch tears. After two weeks, the covers were in taters and are unusable.
