6 Ways to Keep Your Feet Warm During Winter Rides
Toe covers are an easy and cost-effective solution to keeping your toes and, as a result, your feet warm while bicycling in chillier temperatures.
Priced between $10 and $25 on average, toe covers can easily slide over the toe of your cycling shoe. When you don’t need them on, the lightweight covers, which are typically lined with fleece, fit easily into a jersey pocket.
For most cyclists, keeping your toes warm typically means the rest of your foot will stay warm. That’s especially true for those who experience Raynaud’s phenomenon, a common condition that causes blood vessels in the fingers and toes to overly constrict and become cold.
All the major cycling apparel brands make toe covers, including Pactimo, Pearl iZumi, and Castelli.
As an added benefit, toe covers also prevent scuff marks on the toes of your cycling shoes.
