A new pair of winter road bike shoes called Glacier has been launched by Louis Garneau for 2012. Excellent warmth, fit, and comfort are offered by the water-proof membrane and laces in the inner shoe, while its Velcro tab enhances the already reliable support.

Getting the Glacier on is made a bit easier by its giant finger loop on the back. What offers the rider’s feet soothing warmth is its seam-sealed front zipper, its sides’ laminated PVC material, and its neoprene ankle cuff that comes with a full length silicone gripper.

It is estimated that the 2012 Louis Garneau Glacier Winter Road Bike Shoes keeps the feet warm for two hours during a typical winter month. Thus, this pair of road bike shoes are not ideal for longer-distance rides during winter.
