Review: Pro-Endure H2O Multi-fit Overshoes

With the winter weather setting in, and the roads getting progressively wetter and muddier, overshoes are a very worth-while investment.

I received a pair of these great booties from Pro earlier this year, and in the last few weeks have really been able to put them to the test.

I was originally drawn to the product by the ability to use them with both mountain bike and road bike shoes: as a cross-discipline rider, it seemed logical that my feet should be just as toasty on the trails as on the tarmac. The simple velcro fastening under the soles of these covers, means that a variety of cleat types can be easily accommodated, whilst the fit and durability is not compromised.

As the "H2O" branding suggests, the overshoes are fully waterproof and have done a fantastic job of keeping my shoes clean and my feet dry on the few torrential downpours that we have "Endured" this autumn. The tips of the toes and the heels are Kevlar reinforced for added durability, especially useful when being used off-road; and the reflective detailing is very effective at improving visibility.
To keep your feet warm, the overshoes are micro-fleece lined, making them both insulated, fast drying and soft to the touch. Comfort is also aided by the discrete zip closure, which is flexible enough that it does not dig into the back of your ankle when creased.

However, I think that compared to many other winter overshoes, where these booties really excel is their material choice. Like neoprene overshoes, they keep you warm and comfortable. But unlike neoprene, they are thin enough to be flexible, close fitting, and most importantly breathable when you need them to be. After all there is not much point in keeping your feet dry from the rain, if they just get hot and sweaty when you put the effort in!

A great product for multiple discipline use; without compromise on performance or quality. 9/10
