Keep it clean, go faster, look pro.
Castelli made their Lycra Shoe Covers for those cool weather race days when shaving seconds is as imperative as keeping the temperature of your feet carefully regulated, though neither are mutually exclusive of the other. Their lightweight construction urges you to wear them whenever you desire to achieve a maximum performance or aesthetic effect.
The Lycra Shoe Covers are of course, made of Affinity Lycra, which is a super-lightweight and highly elasticized blend of nylon and spandex that sits flush against your shoes, but isn't an absolute bear to get on or off. Affinity even serves as a basic insulatory measure on those cooler morning rides, and is breathable enough to ensure you won't have to stop to remove the covers when the sun finally warms the roads. However, we still wouldn't recommend these covers for long winter training days -- they're just not quite thick enough for that. Castelli recommends using them within mild or warm conditions with temperatures ranging from 14 degrees Celsius (57 degrees Fahrenheit) to 22 degrees Celsius (72 degrees Fahrenheit).
The presence of a camlock zipper at the rear of the Shoe Cover means you'll never be struggling into or out of this bootie. The Castelli Lycra Shoe Cover comes in your choice of Black, Red, or White to best match your favorite kit. Sizes are available from Small to XX-Large, so you're certain to find the right match for your shoes.

I'm not sure why everyone is hating on these covers. They are meant to be tight and as with all Castelli gear the sizing runs way small. I have size 11.5 feet and I wear these covers over size 45 Giro Empires to keep them clean/keep the laces in place. I bought the XL size of these shoe covers.
I think one issue that other people have mentioned is the zipper is flimsy and could rip. I think the reviewers have never helped a woman get into a dress. If you can do that with those hidden zippers then you can figure out how to put these shoe covers on without tearing them to shreds. Also another reviewer said they don't have heel holes, but my size XL do have heel holes.
Avoid at All Cost!!!!
I had to send these back three times for sizing issues, as they were ridiculously too small. (I have size 41 shoes/ 7.5) I gave up the ghost after the size L were too small. Plus the fabric is of poor quality. Stay away my friends.
Hello, what size should I order? I wear...
Hello, what size should I order? I wear SIDI 43 and MAVIC 42 2/3?
Do these shoe covers have heel holes?
Order the Large
There is no hole for the Heel
Do not buy these covers
Complete and total crap item. Size is way off, Castelli logos came off after two rides, and the stiching began to fray and tear...really disappointing to say the least.
