Bottom line

If you're planning to ride through fall, winter, and early spring, cycling shoes with reliable protection against cold and rain are critical. The Sidi Frost Gore may be right in your alley as it offers the comfort, waterproofing, and insulation needed to keep your feet warm and dry.

But like most winter bike shoes, water could come in from the top, and cold could creep in when the temperature reaches a certain low. To prevent these, wearing a toe cover and waterproof cycling pants are recommended. All in all, this Sidi shoe lives up to its claims and Sidi's standards, which could be the shoe you need for extreme weather cycling.
