A company that started out making wetsuits, British brand Huub is now making a splash with its new range of cycling clothing – and with that experience it's in a particularly strong position to make a very good pair of winter cycling overshoes.

In the Huub Neoprene Winter Overshoes I’ve found a worthy successor to my trusty pair of Endura Freezing Points which, up until the arrival of the Huubs, had kept my feet warm and dry since 2018. That’s good going for overshoes, whose lives are usually nasty, brutish and short thanks to the sustained attack of front wheel spray, road scuffing and endless dragging over jagged cleats. However, although the Huub overshoes are every bit as excellent as the Enduras in their performance, I can't see them lasting as long: the thin, stretchy skin over the Neoprene foam is easily damaged unless you're very careful putting them on and taking them off and keep them away from sharp objects such as chains and chainrings.
