With the gravelly advent of all-road cycling, many of us are finding that our usual go-to shoecovers for rainy days lack the flexibility we need for mixed-surface outings. Castelli's Diluvio All-Road Shoecovers combine the waterproof neoprene bodies of the standard Diluvio models with an open-sole construction that accommodates everything from the lugs on mountain bike shoes to traversing the slick finish of café floors in traditional road shoes.
The Diluvio All-Road's neoprene body is an ideal insulation to keep your feet warm and dry. The conforming fit of these covers has also been coupled with a full-length, waterproof rear zipper, which eliminates water infiltration while making the covers easier to pull over your shoes. Additionally, Castelli added a zipper garage, a 16cm fitted cuff, and an O-ring at the top of the opening in order to seal out water.
It's also worth noting that, even though these were designed to be as waterproof as possible, in order to provide a slip-free walking surface, the soles of the All-Road are open. You may not stay quite as dry as with the standard Diluvio, but you won't wear out the covers while walking to the office, into the grocery store, or up flights of stairs. The sole features hook-and-loop adjustability and, once their on and dialed, the Diluvio All-Roads are finished with reflective detailing to help keep you visible in low-light conditions.
