Our review

Quality overshoes that and comfortable, warm and see off mud and rain well
Pros: Offset zip helps prevent tendon rub; robust base fabric, smooth surface gets less dirty than fabric; well priced
Cons: Stitching around the cleat and heel openings doesn’t feel as sturdy as some; some rubbing of the upper on the cranks

As a brand based in Scotland, Endura understands wet conditions and its simply-named Road Overshoes do a good job of protecting from rain.

The smooth outer surface is less prone to wetting out than a fabric outer face and it attracts less dirt too.

The fit is close without feeling tight, although some rubbing of the uppers on the cranks may lead to wear.

Endura Road Overshoes specifications

Endura’s 3mm neoprene upper has seams that, like the Van Rysel overshoes, also on test, are stitched on the inside but welded on the outside, so they do not need to be taped. There’s no hem at the upper cuff, helping to ensure a close fit against tights.

Endura uses a chunky reversed zip with a large metal and plastic puller. It’s offset to the outer side of the overshoe, so there’s less chance of rubbing on the tendons at the back of your foot.

It’s backed with an inner storm flap to help prevent water ingress and shield the foot from the zip. This folds over the top of the zip to form a zip garage. There’s also a reflective strip up both sides of the zipper.

Endura’s base is one piece and made of sturdy fabric. Unlike many overshoes there’s no velcro strap across the bottom under the midfoot, which should mean less tendency to wear.

The Endura Road Overshoes are easy to fit and the sturdy zip easy to use. They feel robust and are warm at low single-digit temperatures on damp roads, with the smooth surface helping to shed water.

They provide good coverage, with a tight cuff which helps avoid water ingress, and the 3mm neoprene is a standard weight used by many overshoes, and is warm and insulating.

There’s also pretty good coverage under the sole, which is usually where water finds its way into overshoes, which helps prevent water penetration, although the heel opening is still fairly large.

The fit is reasonably tight, although I did find that I was getting a little rub on the cranks from the area around the ankle, which may lead to this area wearing over time. This may be down to pedalling style, although there’s a little looseness in the fit of the neoprene here, too.

Endura Road Overshoes bottom line

The Endura Road overshoes are competitively priced.

The Endura Road Overshoes benefit from quality construction and the use of neoprene with a rain-shedding surface, helping to keep your feet drier.

The offset zip helps with pedalling comfort and the tight, raw edged ankle cuff keeps water out well.

They feel sturdy and are well priced for a name brand item, at least in the UK and Europe, although the US pricing is less competitive.
