My sister is after some shoe covers for her commute but she doesnt use spds etc. Are there any cycle specific water proof shoe covers that work with trainers and the like?

Cheers.

    Surely normal cycling overshoes would do the job?

    might get worn down because of the pedal contact?

    Maybe a divers boot would do the trick (one size bigger) neoprene with a gym sole type base ??? :?:

    Does she have mudguards and flaps on her bike ? That would be my first point of call.

    After that - yeah try some big overshoes. They shouldnt wear that much as theres a hole where the pedal cleat would be - but you'll need oversize as trainers are much bigger than cycling shoes.
  • Mudguards, water proof jacket, gloves, trousers, cap...but nobody likes soggy socks.
    Yeah oversize shoe covers might be the answer. I dont think she wants to buy new shoes or diving boots or anything- just a gortex type eleacticated cover was what i was thinking but have not seen any.
