Gird your hooves.

Many of us feel that shredding trails is just more fun than turning the cranks on tarmac, but that doesn't mean we're taking it easy. That's why Pearl Izumi builds the P.R.O. Barrier WxB MTB Shoe Cover with the same all-over stretch fit and anti-weather material as the road version. The only difference between the two is that the mountain-specific model features scuff guards on the toes larger cutouts in the KEVLAR soles in order to accommodate mountain shoe lugs. The latter are especially welcome on the kinds of wet, sloppy days when the P.R.O. Barrier WxB fabric's weather-resistance and insulating fleece lining aren't luxuries, they're necessities.

Extremely small

    Two sizes off in my estimation. Useless. I gave mine away. Didn't want to bother with return.

    These run small

    • Fit: Runs small

    Ordered medium for a size 9 shoe. really tight.

    Runs small

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Xl

    Materials and workmanship seemed fine. Sizing was a challenge. In a size 46 shimano mtb shoe with lugs, it was still very tight for the rear Velcro fastener.

    Never ran into rain on the trip for which these were purchased, so No report on weather tightness and the 3 stars.

    Great Road Shoe Cover

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

    My wife wears a women's size 10 shoe, we got her a medium pair, and they fit, but are very tight. Warmth wise they are great. Went on a 3 hour ride last week in 40 degree mist/rain and her feet were warm the whole ride. Aside from warmth, the upper fabric seems better suited for the road rider, not a mtb rider. Easy to imagine the upper fabric tearing on a branch or thorn, they don't feel as durable as the softshell shoe covers that pearl izumi makes.
