It was also nice to see a reasonably stiff sole, without gaining too much weight. The carbon powder used to reinforce the nylon seems to do the trick here.

Compared to many winter boots, the Farenheits feel and look far sleeker.

The ankle cuff lacks the bulk of many of its competitors while doing a good job of keeping the heat in.

Sadly it's not a fantastic watertight seal so, despite the Gore-Tex, it's possible to get wet feet. That said, these have been the only shoes to date that have kept my toes from going numb on 0°C rides.

For me, that's a huge accomplishment. The fit is mid to wide, so there's room for a thick sock - like a Woolie Boolie - but double check sizing as constricted toes will kill any heat retention.
