DexShell’s Heavy Duty Overshoes are made from four neoprene panels, joined with flat-lock stitching. The rear panel on each side is a little more robust, to resist the additional stresses from pulling the overshoe on and fastening the zip.
The sole has two openings with reinforced elastic edges and abrasion-resistant fabric around the toe and mid-sole areas for durability.
The zip is waterproof, with a reflective strip on each side, plus there’s a reflective logo at the front, and the ankle cuff has a wide elastic band with an internal silicone gripper and rubbery Velcro strap.
DexShell Heavy Duty Overshoes fit and protection
Our size large overshoes were a great fit for size 45 shoes and quick to put on. The robust toe and mid-sole areas gave enough stiffness to help the overshoes hold their shape, but had enough stretch to let you pull them into place first time.
The cleat and heel openings are a good size and positioned perfectly, while the heel loop is useful.
The ankle cuff is snug, without being tight, so there’s no gap for cold or spray to enter when riding in the winter. Neoprene insulates well, and the DexShells offer instant, sustained warmth and wind protection.
For wet-weather riding, these overshoes resist spray and light rain well, but prolonged wetness will saturate them.
Add that to the inevitable water soaking down your tights and you’ll eventually get wet feet.
DexShell Heavy Duty Overshoes bottom line
The DexShell Heavy Duty Overshoes are warm and durable, plus their generous sole openings should help prevent you damaging the material when walking around.
