    New question here. Answer Kashmir winter shoes

    Winter is on its way here in the northeast and I'm tired of riding with cold feet!
    So I'm thinkin of getting myself a pair of winter shoes, but don't want spend a bunch on shoes that I'll only wear for 3 months at a time.
    A pair of Answer Kashmir shoes sound like they'd work out great. But I haven't seen any reviews so far.
    Anybody tried em yet?

    I just got some. I rode with them last weekend with temperature around 28F. They were much better than any shoe/cover combination I've tried. My toes were cold, but they did not _hurt_. I was only wearing a single pair of wool socks.

    I'm going to try them again tomorrow (hopefully) and I'll let you know. It should be colder, and I'll try them with a liner sock, and a wool sock.

    They do feel a little different pedaling because they are 'blanda high-tops' but I'll take that over cold feet.

    The cost was much better than the Lakes

    I'm interested too and would like to know where you can buy these shoes? My local shops don't have them and I haven't found a retailer that knows about them.

    Kashmirs Good.

    I rode yesterday in the cold (between 10-15F). And in the snow, with the singlespeed which meant hiking in the snow. Overall I was very satisfied with the Kashmirs. My toes were cold, but they were not painfully cold or frozen. I was riding, hiking, standing for over 2 hours.

    I don't know what else to expect from a shoe that isn't lined with fleece ...

    The thing I like best is that I could walk in them and not worry about destroying the shoe covers.

    Thumbs up from me ...

    Winter Cycling Socks

    Also, socks make a huge difference when you're riding in really cold weather. We make some excellent winter cycling socks. Wool is better than cotton, but there are much better options. Check out our site: www.curveinc.com The Singletrack Pro and Powder are my best winter riding socks.
