these booties are great for the fall and early spring training when your feet are cold.
Feet are wet after 10- 20minutes exposed to the rain.
These booties are cheap and effective for rainy weather in Seattle.

I have a 7 mile commute in San Francisco and I like riding in the rain. With a rain jacket, rain pants and a full fendered bicycle the only thing that gets wet is my shoes. Even carrying a an extra pair of shoes is a mess, the shoes do not dry out completely during the work day and they just get wetter and smellier throughout the week.

Most bicycling shoe covers are designed for clipless biking shoes, and they don't fit over my size 13 running shoes or my street shoes, or are so short that water pour in in the ankle area. This booties fit perfectly even over my lugged trekking shoes and leave enough sole exposed to get good grip on my BMX style pedals. A little water makes it in around the sole, but not enough to penetrate the shoe, and it dries in 20 minutes.

I have no idea how this would work for a 100 mile ride in heavy rain, but they are perfect for commuting in the rain with street shoes.

I have one pair of these that I've used for two seasons (maybe 20 wearings) and just ordered another to have on hand when the one pair is mud-covered and I want to go out again. (I often ride trails in winter and the booties get sprayed with mud mist). There are some nicks on the exterior where small rocks flicked off the trail hit them, and they're more gray now than black; but the seams are all holding, the zippers still work fine, and the yellow toes and heel look like new.

Short answer is the large size works very well on my size 45 cycling shoes. I can get them on without much trouble, though the zipper does get a bit stuck midway up the back: but just point your feet up to stretch the material in back and make the zipper a straight line and up it goes. It locks under a weatherproof velcro tab and I've never had a problem with it while riding. The exterior is polyurethane, and the interior is a short, microfleece-like nylon, like a thin glove. Toes and heels are reinforced with a heavier weight ripstop nylon (the yellow portion in the photos) There's a strip of reflective piping along the zipper in back, and about a square inch on the outside ankle (the Sugoi logo) They come up well above your ankle for comfort and secure fit.

These booties keep my feet dry and cut the wind almost completely, so my feet stay much warmer. I've ridden with these in 38 degrees on muddy trails, and I was comfortable--enough so that I didn't notice my feet at all. I get cold easily, so factor that into your expectations. Without these, even on dry pavement, the wind sucks all the heat out of my feet pretty quickly.

NOTE: This product is confusing...Sugoi makes another version called the Resistor Shoe Cover (as opposed to Bootie) which isn't waterproof at all.

I like these booties for the snug fit, the fact that they are not a velcro closure, and that they keep my feet warm in cold weather. I like the material they are made of, too, a plastic-coated, thin, fleecy material, instead of a thick, clunky neoprene.
My bike shoes are size 42.5 and the Medium size bootie fits perfectly. I use these mostly with my SPD shoes and pedals, but I have also used them with my SPD-SL cleats and pedals, and they don't hinder the functioning of the cleats or the pedals in any way - you almost forget you're wearing booties.
Several other cycling friends recommended these, saying their feet stayed dry for at least an hour or more while biking in the Portland rain. My results were not quite as great, for some reason. I find my feet get wet after maybe 30 minutes of biking in rain. Now, when I say rain, I mean Portland rain, in fall and winter, where we measure our rain in feet, not inches. I wear these booties with my Sidi shoes and clip-in pedals and I pull my waterproof tights over the top of the bootie, so the rain isn't running down my leg getting into the bootie. I think it sloshes up from underneath somehow, and I do have fenders on my bike, but I'm still not sure how my feet get so wet. I'd say after an hour of biking in the rain, my feet are so wet, I need to wring out my socks. BUT my feet stay warm. On super cold days, like in the high 20's, low 30's, I put those "Hotties" hand warmers between the bootie and my shoe, and my toes stay warm.
As for durability, I have had a pair for a couple seasons and I they've held up pretty well; but on a recent ride I think I scraped my toe against something because I have a hole in the toe of the bootie and a scraped spot on my shoe.

I wear these throughout the winter cycling training months. They are good for a temperature down to about 40 degrees for me (though I'm not very tolerant of the cold, so you might be able to go colder).

The few times it's rained on me while it was that cold, my feet stayed dry.

Mine are about 4 years old and are holding up just fine.

If you use these for what they are made for (wearing them over cycling shoes), they should be just fine.

Logo came off left bootie immediately after putting it on the first time. Outer shell may be waterproof, but lining absorbs water as it runs off the top surface. Feet are wet after 10- 20minutes exposed to the rain. Elastic strap that goes under shoe, behind cleat ripped on right bootie after 4th use. Hole in toe of right bootie, also after 4th use. Definitely not the product for regular use in the Pacific North Wet!

01/13/2014 - UPDATE: After using regularly for the last 2 months, elastic ripped in half on both booties and the back of each bootie is ripped out where the yellow (nylon?) fabric is sewn into the neoprene material. Yellow fabric has frayed and deteriorated to the point where these are unusable. have ordered a better pair by another manufacturer. Save you money and order something better.
