 Yes, I recommend this product

Pros: Attractive, Well Built, Comfortable, Durable, Good Fitting, High Quality
Cons: Expensive

"1. These shoes -rather heavy close to one pound each - came in wide fit so enough room for thicker socks without sizing up. 2. For colder weather, you can put an overshoes on top of these to further up the temperature tolerance range. 3. The vents underneath the shoes does let the water come pouring in but the Thinsulate insulation let the feet stay warm even when wet. You can tape it up with some waterproof tapes. VERDICT: The Specialized Defroster Road Shoes "DID SOLVE" the cold feet problem for me "COMPLETELY AND SATISFACTORILY" after years of trying to keep my feet warm with no significant success. The higher price do justify the enjoyment of comfortable winter cycling. "

Product Q&A

Hi, do the shoes come with the cleats and are they easy to fit. They don't appear in your photographs of the product.
1 answers


"Hi Alan, Shoes dont come with cleats as the cleat is specific to the pedal not the shoe (other than road or Mtb). When you get a set of pedals you will have cleats included."


On your web site the Specialized Defroster Shoe 2015 is showing an alternative colour way in the side bar as opposed to the plain black one. Is this other predominately white colour way available? Its just there is no colour option when purchasing.

Is it wise to buy a size up to allow for thicker socks??
1 answers


"Hi Tony, if you would wear thicker socks than normal with these shoes, it may be worth going for the next size up, yes.

People often buy 2 pairs and return the pair that dont fit for a refund.
Thanks for the question.
