The ZERO+ Bootie the latest iteration of our winter shoe cover, utilizing an innovative and proprietary Italian-made soft-shell fabric. It has a look of neoprene, but is far warmer and lighter, all while providing exceptional wet weather protection as well. It's magic lies in the "spacer" within the fabric, which creates an air cavity that traps the warm air. The outer face along with the membrane provides wind and water protection, while the inner face keeps the feet warm. This unique "four-layer" fabric is windproof and water resistant, keeping your feet warm and dry throughout the winter months.
Fabric: 85% Polyamide / 15% Elastane + Spacer / Membrane
Made in: Italy
Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. It’s important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don’t do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.

These are great. Super warm and good-looking. I'm a size 8.5 US W which puts me on the cusp between a Small and Medium according to the size chart. The Medium was a bit too long. Exchanging for a size Small.
I bought these as "second" covers so I could have one pair for my road shoes, and one for mountain/gravel. I've always found booties annoying to put on and get the cleat lined up properly, so this way, I only have to remove the booties far enough to get my foot in and out of the shoe. These booties are quite warm, and offer enough insulation to get me down to around 35 degrees, 20 degrees with the addition of wool socks and some chemical foot warmers placed between my shoe and the bootie. The medium works well with my size 40 cycling shoes, but is still a bit of a struggle to get on and off all the way. I did take away one star because the placement of the cleat opening is simply too far forward on my shoe. The heel-side of my LOOK cleat doesn't quite clear the fabric of the bootie, so it takes some extra finagling to get it fit so my cleat doesn't randomly pop out of my pedal. Meanwhile, there is about 1.5" of clearance on the toe-side of the cleat. I don't have an extreme cleat position, so I'm certain I'm not the only rider who has this problem. Maybe something for the design team to take a look at in the future?
I bought these for my spouse, as I love mine. They are warm, easy to zip and unzip, and relatively easy to get on and off of cleated bike shoes. COnsistent with their description, they are warm but NOT waterproof. So if it is raining, wear other booties.
These keep my feet nice and cozy.
They're great. Easy to put on and are well made. I've used side zipper booties before and have to say these back zip are a huge improvement in easy of getting on. They are warm and block the wind. I've worn on a couple of wet rides just above freezing and its gets me through 2-3 hours ok. The only complaint/improvement would be to add extra insulation to the toe box area which does get chilly after a while.
