You can ride all year long with Specialized's Defroster MTB Shoes! They're waterproof and feature 400-gram insulation throughout, a high cut and insulated toes to keep you dry, warm and comfortable. Plus, they boast stiff composite soles for pedaling efficiency, Specialized's thermal-fleece lined Body Geometry footbeds for awesome ergonomics, Boa closures for customizing the fit and feel, and molded lugs for top-notch traction. There are even reflective accents for safety!
Warm, waterproof shoes. But for some reason Specialized left out a liner, and has protruding inner seams that rubbed my ankles raw, even with thick wool socks. I had to add multiple pads/ moleskin pieces to make these shoes usable, but still have a pressure point.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
I'm a semi-professional cyclist. Whenever the weather dips under 50 my feet end up going numb on the rides. I would put warmers, put on shoe covers, and I had enough. I decided to invest in these bad boys. they are amazing. my feet don't go numb, and they are completely waterproof/windproof. AMAZING
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
