DeFeet's Slipstream 4-inch Shoe Covers are the result of careful observation of professional cyclists' footwear behavior over the years. What we mean is that up until the late '80s, cyclists would wear a pair of socks over their shoes while racing and training. According to DeFeet, the riders' reasoning for this was that it was more aerodynamic, kept the shoes cleaner, looked better, and made them faster than naked shoes alone.

So, to pay homage to the classic era of cycling, and to block the icy winds, DeFeet came up with the Slipstream. Like a sock, only better. Like a bootie, only thinner. The material is 60% cordura, 30% nylon, 10% Lycra. So it's durable, provides some protection from the wind, and has generous stretch. There's a line stitched in the bottom showing where you should cut the threads with a pair of scissors in order to allow your cleats to poke through. Additionally, like a sock, there's a top cuff. In this case, it's a traditional DeFeet cuff that's four-inches tall.

The Slipstreams are perfect for the days when it's too cold to have a naked shoe, but it's too warm to have a completely windproof shoe cover. Admittedly, though, this temperature line completely depends on the person and the activity.
