Sportful Pro Race Toe Covers review

These half-overshoes are wholly useful for days when it's not quite warm enough to leave home without some sort of toe protection

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Sportful Pro Race Toe Covers are well fitting, durable and most importantly perform that vital job of protecting your toes (and white shoes) against spring or autumn conditions out on the road. They're well made, designed with practicality in mind, and they are as chic as toe covers can be. Although £24 for something that does such an important job is relatively cheap, they're slightly more expensive than their competitors and we'd like to see more than just one size offered.

Toe covers are an incredibly useful halfway house for your feet when it’s not quite cold enough for full overshoes but the temperature is still in single figures.

Not only do they supply extra insulation but they’re also perfect for keeping your best cycling shoes clean when the lanes are still wet and filthy. If you’ve just splashed out on a pair of pristine white kicks for the new season, it can be heartbreaking to return home with them splattered in mud after the first ride.
