Racing TTs this year I see a lot of people using rubber velotoze shoe covers.

At 2,000 yen or so I thought I'd give them a try.


A pair arrived in the post from amazon.jp this morning.

They are labelled as "lightweight, waterproof and aerodynamic". I was only drawn by the aero aspect but as the rainy season reached Niigata today, I decided to give them a try.



2 hours training in the rain and I arrived home with dry shoes and socks!

The days off stuffing shoes with newspapers may finally be over!

They are a a snug fit so they may also be good as a base layer benerath neroprene winter shoe covers on extra cold or wet days.

Durability may be an issue but I'm happy if I can use them on wet days and TTs.

Give them a try!

I have these in black and rate them.

If you follow the instructions on the pack, they tend to last an okay period of time.
