    Well its good to hear they work. I like how it looks to sort of "seal" around the ankle there. But I can't stand constantly digging ice/snow from around my cleats in snow. So I just run platforms :\

    Yup, i enjoyed them all winter long last year. They were great. Like you said with thin wool socks, they keep you nice and toasty, on the 25 degree and less days, i threw a footwarmer pack in there and it was was great.

    What temp range do you think they work in - high and low?

    They work for me as long as I start out with hot feet. I've dealt with "poor circulation" (call it what you will) in the cold for 20 years. the nice thing about these is that they are water proof so when I get caught in a snow/rain commute, it doesn't bother my feet. As long as I start with "hot" feet, I can ride 1+ hours comfortably in below freezing temps.

    ...my defrosters....temps have dropped to about 13 Degrees F around my way for about 5 days straight....the defrosters still doing a good job although i had to put in the toe warmers as "jut8" recommended. Doing that at about 25 degrees. So far the range has been 35 degrees to 13 degrees. I didn't use them at much above the 35 degree mark.....my regular shoes were fine at above 40 or so.

    Can't believe i went for so long with baggies on the toes and duct tape blocking the vents. Should have bought these years ago.
