High-stretch neoprene flex zone at ankle for flexibility + Silicone gripper at cuff Windproof, water resistant body fabric with fleece backer for protection and warmth while riding High-durability fabric under foot Reflective detail on zipper for visibility Temp. Range +5 to +16 degrees C Wind Protection - 4/5 Water Protection - 3/5 Insulation - 3/5 Breathability - 3/5 Lightweight - 3/5 Inserts: 90% Elastodiene, 10% Polyamide(Nylon) Main: 100% Polyester. The softshell and neoprene construction of the Castelli Evo Overshoes makes for a shoe cover designed to provide warmth and insulation while offering water resistance on days where the weather swings from dry to damp and back again. Castelli's primary focus for the Evo overshoes was warmth and fit with some water resistance thrown in for good measure. The SoftShell main fabric keeps splashes at bay, while the neoprene insert at the ankle allows extra flexibility for a natural fit when pedalling. While not totally waterproof or as breathable as the Narcisista bootie, these overshoes were made to allow hours of riding with toasty feet. As winters become less extreme we'd expect these to be the ideal overshoe for the majority of your autumn and winter rides.

If this set aren't the right size for you, then I have plenty more in my overshoes section. Each set varies in terms of characteristics; from heavy duty thermal wind & waterproof zip covers to simply lightweight aerodynamic skins for time trialing, I strive to include any heavily reduced outer footwear deals I can find, regardless of manufacturer or retailer. Either way, please make sure that they are the correct sizing (so that they fit over your cycling shoes) - some brands run tight, whereas other overshoes are specifically designed for road shoes, and so won't fit over MTB SPD shoes due to the protruding grippy soles.

Castelli has a rich history as one of the iconic cycling brands, primarily specialising in high end road clothing. Founded by Vittore Gianni in 1876, initially as a tailor shop in Milan, it diversified to include cycling clothing in 1910, for riders such as Alfredo Binda. In 1935 Armando Castelli joined the company, purchasing it 4 years later. Shortly afterwards it began supplying riders such as Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi. By 1975, it was rebranded to Castelli, featuring the iconic scorpion logo, and shortly afterwards produced many revolutionary clothing products, such as the first lycra cycling shorts, windproof jerseys and thermal cycling clothing. To this day, the brand is synonymous with performance cycle wear, and together with Santini, they supply some of the greatest ex and current cyclists on the planet. If you wish to view more by this classic Italian manufacturer, please view my current Castelli clothing deals.

I originally found this deal at Wiggle, who are widely established as one of the biggest cycle retailers in the UK. The first incarnation of this giant was as a small bike shop based in Portsmouth, named Butler Cycles... Find out more details about Wiggle here.
