    Northwave Artic Celsius GTX

    Got a pair of these for Christmas...warm on east coast now so can't try them out yet. Anyone use them? Like them?

    I picked up a pair a few weeks ago when Amazon had them for $100.

    And, of course, we've had record high temps since then. But i did get out for a ride that started with temps around 25 degrees and finished at 40ish with LOTS of stream crossings. The shoes are fantastic. I wore regular thin, polypro socks as I hadn't picked up a good pair of wool socks yet but they were plenty warm at 25 degrees. More importantly, they are VERY waterproof.

    They aren't heavily insulated so I don't know how cold they'd work for but I think I'd want something with more insulation for temps below 15 degrees or so. That or I'd put a foot warmer in them. Note that I notoriously have cold feet so others may find them warmer feeling. That said, I used to refuse to ride when it's below 40 because my feet got so cold. Now, I'm toasty below freezing.

    Overall, they are extremely comfortable, very dry, and fit a bit on the large size -- allowing room for thicker socks or foot warmers. The closure system is great and they are great for walking over rough terrain as well.

    Great info....thanks! I feel like I can wear them with lighter weight merino socks.

    I recently got a pair a North Wave boots (don't know the model) that I really like. Very warm. I'll be wearing them in everything from 50F down, since my toes get cold easily and my regular shoes are a bit tight which exacerbates the problem. My feet do sweat, but no problems so far.

    Will probably use bootie covers when really cold, but so far (37F- crazy weather) I've been comfortable.

    I'll be racing the Snake Creek Gap Time Trial in them next week. Temps at the start are supposed to be in the 30s with highs in the 50s. Rain is expected. I think the Northwaves are made for these conditions -- especially for someone like me whose feet are always cold.
