One of the first places I get cold whenever I go out on the bike are my hands and my feet. Luckily my hands have been taken care of by heated grips and some great winter gloves this year, but this still left my feet getting chilly through my ‘race style’ plastic boots. Whilst these are good for riding out on a hot summers day, as soon as the sky started to turn grey I knew I had to sort out some waterproof boots.
With the Sofia boots from Spada my feet remained warm, and most importantly dry even in the heaviest of downpours. Often with waterproof boots, the lining doesn’t allow your feet to breathe and your feet get rather sweaty, however these feature a breathable lining which keep you comfortably warm but not too hot. There’s a full length zip along the side with additional Velcro. On the left boot you’ll see a handy patch to resist wear when changing gear and rubber soles mean that your feet don’t slip off pegs on bikes or footboards on scooters. Even though they’re made for riding, I have been known to keep them on all day rather than swapping back into my normal work shoes!
