Mavic Crossmax SL Pro Thermo Shoe

This is an excellent winter boot for cold-weather cycling. It protects your feet from both the wind and the rain and is my go-to shoe when cycling in wintery or wet conditions.

It takes a bit of time to get on due to the zip, velcro and boa dial. Why it needs quite so many fastenings is unclear. But, once you have it on, you can tighten it up as needed using the dial only. I can still fit my Spatz overshoes over the top of the boots.

These are SPD cleat-specific, but Mavic also do a similar-looking shoe called the Ksyrium Pro Thermo that supports SPD-SL cleats.
