    Winter Platform Shoe?

    Just curious what people are using for platform pedals in the winter. It's usually between 15F - 30F here during my winter rides and have considered just getting a good waterproof hiking boot, but that's like riding with bricks on your feet.

    Looking for something lightweight and waterproof.

    Tough one there. I wear hikers with my platform pedals when there is snow on the ground, or if it's cold, like <30F. Any higher than 30, and I use a pair of 5.10 Line King hi top shoes. I like them, but I just wish I ordered a size bigger so it would allow for wool socks. You could also look into the neoprene shoe covers, or gaiters. I've thought about both those options, but I'm fine with the hikers I have for the few times it's cold enough to justify. Good luck!

    I ended up just buying a pair of these:

    Amazon.com: Merrell Men's Moab Polar Waterproof Winter Boot,Black,11 M US: Shoes

    Not ideal for feeling "connected" to the bike, but they're insulated, light, and comfy.
