    I just did my first event in Uk last week and now I´m reviewing what I definitely need to buy.

    I don´t know if I should buy waterproof overshoes or waterproof socks (sealskinz have) or both. I don´t want to overheat my feet but I don´t want them wet as well

    anyone can help?

    I have both, I prefer sealskinz to my overshoes……. But then I don’t really mind wet feet either.

    What type of event? Road or MTB?

    I use Sealskinz for MTB and overshoes on the roadie. Don’t know how durable overshoes would be for off road use, they’d probably get ruined in 5 minutes.

    is for mtb smurf. the overshoes even if ruined they would avoid you to need to wash up so much mud from your shoes no?

    when you two mention “sealskinz” you mean the waterproof socks from them no?

    Yeah definitely but if they fall to pieces every couple of months, it could end up being very expensive. I’d rather clean my shoes!!

    Yeah, that’s what you were talking about isn’t it? 😕

    I wore a pair of overshoes for 1 particularly rough ride – they’re shagged now. I save my new pair for road and light trail stuff but haven’t worn them this winter at all to be honest.

    Washing shoes involves 30 seconds with a hose. You would have to do the same to the overshoes.

    🙂
