C5 Gore Windstopper Overshoes

Winter is approaching and the last few rides have left your toes numb from cold temperatures and frigid winds. Whether you're going out for an early winter road ride, or hitting the trails on a chilly fall morning, the C5 Gore Windstopper Overshoes are a worthy companion to keep your feet warm and happy. These lightweight shoe covers have a Gore Windstopper membrane on the front and back to block harsh winds, all while maintaining breathability for more intense rides when your body temperature rises. A zippered closure allows easy on and off, while the elastic back ensures a comfortable fit for most road and XC-oriented mountain shoes. Reflective logo and piping helps your visibility to traffic on low-light morning or evening commutes.

  • Windstopper material blocks wind while maintaining breathability
  • Zipper closure simplifies makes it easy to slide them on or off
  • Elastic back provides a comfortable fit for most cycling shoes
  • Reflective elements enhance visibility to traffic in low light

works great... order larger size

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

True, I have wide, tall feet at US size 11. so I bought the 11-13 and they go on just a bit tight. Just rode for 2 hours in 28deg (f) and was comfortable if a little cool. Much, much better than neoprene. Happy. Good purchase.

Great... a big step up from cheap covers

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

Cold hands and feet are my limiters. Last year 38f was my limit before my feet would fail me after an hour. Typically, I wet out my socks after an hour or the soles of my shoes chill my toes. I typically don't ride in "winter rain" just dry &cold or melting snow&cold.

This year I ponied up for these ,which are GREAT did a ride at 31f in the woods. These seem to be somewhat unique on the market, so I wanted call them out. The best feature here is the breathable backside is very comfortable, the insulation actually does something, the cleat opening works for MTB shoes (seriously, why don't shoe covers fit MTB shoes? whats the percentage of people using road shoes sub-40f?), and they even insulate/shield a bit of the underside of the shoe. These would not be great for a rainy winter day, but you get a much more comfortable shoe cover in return.
I'm wearing a Shimano 46 RX8 with a Gore XL. The toe doesn't sit perfect like others noted, but this seems to be a limitation of the material....and who cares as long as it's close.

Before this I did the usual -
-I switched to thinner, primaloft socks to allow for more circulation and more open insulation over merino (Note that you can't just sock your way to better insulation as crushed insulation has zero R value)
-Added Lake/Sykol insoles (which are miles better than the aerogel/wool/aluminum/etc solutions)
-Played with the covers. Having tried cheap nylon/neoprene covers which sucked to use, I got ~$50 PI softshell covers. The PI blocked wind well, but not warm and very clunky at the ankle (2015ish model, they might have nicer ones now) . I also tried Sealskin belgian booties, which felt great and were kinda water/wind proof, but not much insulation for sub-40f and have a short lifespan with MTB shoes.

Not having any luck here, I also tired a bunch of winter shoes (Mavic, Fizik, NW, Lake), which all seemed like no one had actually tested them - in particular they are all cold on the sole side (expt Lake), don't breathe well, don't have extra girth to accommodate normal wool socks/thick insole solutions, don't have any extra toe room to allow for heater packets/warm air to collect, the ankle cuffs make them just as terrible to use as overshoes, and the insulation is ineffective (on the ones that have have insulation). I do actually like the "fall" low top, wind/water proof shoes that Mavic (Crossmax CM) , NW, and lake I'm trying some Sidi Frost now, and these may be the best of the bunch aside from the insoles and stiff collar - they are not as comfortable as the normal shoe + Gore overshoe due to the collar.

They fit weird

    The only issue I have with these shoe covers is that they fit weird and it makes it hard for me to clip on. If they were more rounded I’d totally keep them.

    They fit weird


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XXL

    I use these as "base" layer under the Gore Wear heavy duty shoe cover on super bad days of temps in the teens with snow or rain. I'm good for two hours even when they get wet. (size 47 mtn. bike shoes)

    Sizes are not accurate

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    Way too small. Had to exchange a size Large for a size XXL and hoping that size fits.

    They run way small and have no durabilit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    They said they were for US 11-13. They definitely DO NOT fit on 11’s. They barely fit on 10’s and even then are stretched to the limit. After about one month of use my fears are proving true. They are already starting to come apart. Holes began to develop after the first ride. Now I have 3-5 holes on each one. Some at the toes, some on the soles. I am definitely never buying these again. The cheap Chinese knockoffs I bought on amazon for $10 last year lasted longer.

    Way way small

    I bought this to replace Gore booties I had. Bought the same size but i cant even get these over the tip of my shoes. I will probably need a XXXXL but that doesnt exist ...

    Mine were the same. Said they were for US 11-13. Could barely fit them on size 10’s.
