When these arrived, I was a bit concerned that the ankles looked awfully narrow. I cant' get them done up over my thick winter socks and tights. So I have to wear a reflective ankle band to hold them closed. They'd be perfect if it wasn't for that one annoying detail.
Hi Pieter, thanks for your feedback. It is worth noting that while the fabric is completely waterproof, if you are riding in persistent and/or heavy rain - water will eventually run down your legs or splash up from the ground and gradually irrigate your socks. So not bulletproof, but in those conditions they will still keep your feet warmer and drier than naked shoes. Pedal on, Ernie
Did the trick, great purchase for those winter rides
