The worst part about commuting in the rain is the impending doom of wet socks. However, with a little help from the Gore Bike Wear Universal City GT OverShoes, your feet stay relatively dry and well-protected. Constructed with a Gore-Tex membrane, these OverShoes provide waterproof protection in the face of precipitation, while the breathable component of the Gore-Tex membrane keeps your feet feeling comfortable and well-ventilated. Additionally, the open soles make for easy on and off, and are framed by abrasion-resistant material to prevent premature wear and tear. Reflective details enhance your visibility, as do the potently-loud fabric choices. And, not to mention, the hook-and-loop closure provides a secure, personalized fit—every single ride.
- A weatherproof shoe cover for cycling

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I wear a size 11.5-12 B width in dress/casual shoes and purchased these in XL and use them to help on rainy day trips to work. They fit nicely with little slop (excess material flapping around) after fastening. They have kept shoes dry in rain and puddles on a relatively short commute. The hook and loop fastening system at the back is a bit awkward but seals pretty well and allows for some fit adjustment. The open sole works, however, the trim at the welt tends to fall below the sole in places and you may end up walking on parts of it. Short walks from bike to office, including some stairs, have been fine so far.
Way too large
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Large
So, I wear a men's 8.5 (and my cycling shoes are men's shoes, so I'm sure about that, thanks). I don't like being right on the cut off, but I've also had issues with ripping shoe covers before, so I thought it'd be safer to order the L. Nope. They were so huge on my RAIN BOOTS from SIDI (as in, already sort of oversized shoes, not super tight shoe-hugging summer shoes with vents and stuff, but high top shoes!) that the hole for the cleat extended past the cleat, past the sole to the shoe on BOTH SIDES (the hole for the cleats were HUGE). The fit around the shoe was HUGE and sloppy, and the only tight thing was the elastic at the calf-- you could have probably fit both of my feet in one of them. And, further, because of the construction, ripping the shoe cover isn't an issue anyway, because you open the entire back to slip the shoe into the cover. But a rain cover that has huge holes and fits like a gunny sack isn't going to help anything and certainly does not justify the price. There is no way anyone who wears a 8.5, 9, or even 9.5 should buy the Large. Does the S/M work? Don't know. When i went to return them to CC they didn't offer an exchange for a smaller size, and now I feel a bit gun shy.
