Not waterproof and impossible to get dry after a wet trip

- Koen, 1 January, 2022

The shoe is sold as waterproof. However, my feet are completely soaked from the rain after an hour of cycling in dry weather over wet roads. As a result, my feet once again become icy cold. I store the shoes indoors, in a heated storage room; even after a week, the shoes and 'sock' are still completely soaked from the inside.

Pros & Cons

Absolutely not hot

- Dirk, 22 January, 2021

Shoes are sold as winter shoes and touted as one of the warmest shoes in Mantel's range. It is even said that at temperatures above freezing, the shoes quickly become too warm. Another plus point of the shoe is said to be that they are fully waterproof. Unfortunately, I have found that the real thing is different after all. After cycling in temperatures just and/or well above freezing point, the shoes were not warm, feet just stayed cold. When cycling in rain, I also found that the shoes are not at all waterproof and this has nothing to do with whether you put your trousers inside the shoe. In short, should you be looking for warm and waterproof winter cycling shoes, skip these and choose another type of shoe that does keep your feet warm and dry.
