Cycling Weekly Verdict

Here we go again: another extraordinarily good, but extraordinarily expensive, Assos garment. These winter boots kept my feet warm, dry, and comfortable. The lack of zips means they're harder to put on, but that also helps ensure longevity. Personally, I'd rather buy one £80 ($110) pair of overshoes, than four £20 ($27) pairs.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Warm yet light

  • +

    Kept the rain out

  • +

    No zips/velcro increases longevity

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Leave an extra couple of minutes in the morning to get them on

Setting aim at lightweight flexibility and aerodynamics, Assos's winter booties have the unintended benefit of doing away with the weakest areas affecting most overshoes, namely, zips and Velcro fastenings. They're warm, water-resistant, breathable, and - so far - long-lasting. The only thing not to like, really, is the price.
