Hi folks. Hope someone has some words of wisdom on this subject. I am traveling across country from LA to NY leaving April 15 on a southern route with 11 other charity riders. I hate wet feet more than a cat. Anyone make a shoe cover that is waterproof?]

For something that works great & costs very little, try buying a pair of rubbers and cut out the soles for your cleats. Shouldn't cost you more than a few bucks.

I use two layers and stay warm and dry.

Base layer: pearl izumi amfib shoe cover
outter layer: pearl izumi toaster bootie

Where now.....

I went to the Excel website and they no longer carry the Climaproof model. They have a similar style but they are for wind protection only. I went to the Adidas website and they do not show the model either. Any suggestions?

Though it's not waterproof, it's highly water resistence.

Try these three. I don't have any experience in any these products. I do love my Adidas and maybe should have bought another since they're hard to find now. Good luck!

Here's a pair from a company that specializes in rain gear.

Another nice thing is how they are available in very specific sizes, instead of just small/medium/large.

Best combo for keeping feet dry and warm? Full fenders and shoe covers. I use the PI Amfibs.
