    Why no Gore-tex flat shoes?

    Having a pair of Spec´2FO that I like, I´m just wondering how come there is no Gore-tex shoes for us riding flat pedals?

    I have had 3 pair of Gore-tex winter boots when riding clipless.

    Why not?

    Because if you're riding in the rain, the water will come in where your ankle enters the foot.

    Boots are significantly higher, and often worn with gaiters. And, are used in snow, which won't flow down your leg like rain would.

    Hmm yeah well, get your point. However, still seems weird there´s so many options for the clipless crowd.

    Have a pair of Sealskinz, probably just try out a new pair with Hydrostop and maybe more insulation.
