veloToze cycling shoe covers were born out of necessity by a group of dedicated cyclists in Sonoma County, California. We wanted to enjoy our ride in the rain or cold and still end up with warm, dry feet. After trying a lot of different shoe covers (and still finding ourselves with cold, wet feet), we decided to start from scratch. We created two totally new products – veloToze Tall and Short shoe covers.
The Tall shoe covers are designed for cold, rainy or snowy days. The Short shoe covers are designed for cool or foggy days. In addition to working better than any other shoe cover out there, we think they look pretty awesome. But don’t believe us, try them for yourself!
