As a handy companion to Giordana's Nordic Anti-Vento Gloves, the Giordana Nordic Anti-Vento Shoe Covers are designed to keep your feet warm and comfy in the equivalent of gale force Irish winds. Incorporating a membrane of WindTex around the entire foot, these booties will keep your feet supremely warm by preventing the wind from draining all your body heat away from your tootsies. Add to that a neoprene toe cover and you'll have no troubles with numb or frozen feet even after a cold, windy ride in the depths of December. They have also made use of their effective CamLock zipper system to seal up the rear opening. It is nice and large when unzipped so that you can enjoy an easy entry for your feet, but then it will close securely and stay that way once you zip up and head out for the ride. Add to that a Velcro ankle closure and you'll be able to protect your lowest extremity for the duration of your winter training. And the CamLock zipper is reflective, so that all the traffic behind you will be alerted to your presence on the road. The Giordana Nordic Anti-Vento Shoe Covers are available in Black and come in sizes Small through X-Large.
