One of Gore's lighter pairs of overshoes, the Oxygen Lights actually proved surprisingly warm even during long, bitterly cold rides, thanks to the Windstopper soft shell fabric.
In our experience lighter overshoes aren’t that much colder than thick Neoprene ones – they just don’t keep your feet warm for as long. Even in temperatures down to zero these should be good for up to an hour or so.
If your commute or regular winter rides are longer than that, or if you tend to suffer from cold feet, heavier overshoes or even winter road shoes are worth looking at, but for spring, autumn and shorter rides these will do the job, without your feet getting as clammy.
