    How Do You Keep Your Feet Dry?

    Are there any rain booties out there that actually work? Does anyone have some effective ways to keep your (clipless) shoes dry in the rain?

    Cold weather: waterproof pants, gore-tex boots

    warm weather: sandals, let the feet get wet and dry off when you get where you are going

    Year round: loooong front fenders extensions that reach to within 1 inch of the ground, keep the splash up to a minimum

    I have a car. I made a choice. I ride my bike.

    Fenders and neoprene booties. I picked up a pair from biketiresdirect.com for $24, actually they were $17 since I had 700VIP points.

    I just tried some waterproof socks for bushwalking and reckon they would be great for this. They are not completely bombproof, in that if you step in a puddle your feet will get a little bit damp but nothing like normal socks. They are waterproof for splashes and mud and what not tho.

    I have neoprene socks for the sloppy winter. I find them to be warmer than booties. They are 'gator' brand, I got them at pricepoint. They were totally waterproof for about 2 seasons of rain and snow. Now they let some water through. I wear them over my normal socks.

    They are warm and dry, but the downside is that your shoes get soaked. I have a place to stash soaking wet shoes at work, so no big deal, but if you're trying to keep the shoes dry, you gotta go with a bootie of some sort.

    I'm a huge fan of the neoprene socks though.
    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)
