The Belgian Bootie 4 serves Castelli’s pros well from cool fall road rides all the way through winter to the ‘cross spring classics. While that’s fine for the pros, the Belgian Bootie 4 gives the self-sponsored one feature that the pros don’t share—four different colorways to choose from.
Castelli Belgian Bootie 4 shoe covers are made with snug-fitting polypropylene that insults without bulk, so they won’t rub your crankarms while you ride. They are also tall enough to cover your socks to keep out moisture and mud. Cleat and heel cutouts make it easy to clip in and scramble over obstacles, and reflective trim makes you more visible in traffic.

I love sock-type shoe covers and the Belgian bootie makes me yearn for cooler weather and the tough-as-nails riding that comes with it. I like the neon stripe up the back on the Black/Yellow Fluo for visibility and style. They pair well with Castelli's Thermoflex knee and arm warmers that also have a Yellow Fluo stripe.
How is the Belgian Bootie 4 different than the 3?
