which are a warmer set up, booties over normal shoes or winter specific shoes? And which brands work the best?
Do you get a size larger for winter shoes to fit heavier socks?Winter shoes are much warmer. I currently have the Shimano sh-mw81 which I find are good down to 32ish for me. If it's colder, I will use toe and liner warmers. When it's time to replace, will be looking at Lake and 45NRTH.
Winter shoes for Mtb, booties for the road. The lakes and such so not have enough toe protection for the constant wind battle on the road and booties are better designed to block the wind
Winter shoes if you can spend $250 on a pair of one season shoes. Booties if you can't afford it . Booties work fine for me,
