DescriptionThe Glacier RD shoes are the latest winter cycling shoe with a fiberglass-reinforced road outsole and aluminum-coated insole to provide protection and insulation from the cold. Thinsulate waterproof lining can accommodate heat packs between the laces and outer fabric. Adjusting strap on the forefoot enhances power transfer.
2 Customer Review(s)I bought the Glacier Winter Cycling Boots about 2 months ago and have used them several times now this winter in temperatures ranging from just above 0 degrees celsius to about -15 and lower. I bought them to use in conjunction with the Therm-ic battery powered heated socks that I also bought this season. I was very tired of having frozen feet while trying to train in the winter and figured this option may give me the best results. So far I am quite happy with the results as rides have not had to be cut short due to frozen feet.
For that price they were definitely worth trying out and replacing my old Lake SPD winter boots that I bought years ago at MEC. With the Glacier boots I am able to use road cleats and pedals, which was definitely a plus.
I believe that the Glacier boots are definitely warmer than just wearing road shoes and are probably warmer than my old Lake boots. To increase warmth further the heated socks have been great plus I also added another felt/aluminum insole into the boot to provide extra insulation. My feet used to get very cold on winter rides, seemingly much colder than riders I was out with, and this used to limit how long I could ride for. This season I have been able to do long rides on very cold days and have not had frozen toes during and after the ride.
The built in covers on the Glacier boots make it slightly difficult to put on the boots but provide waterproof protection on wet days and easily allow me to use another nylon booty over top for further insulation and protection. I have also found the insoles to be quite stiff and therefore efficient.
The lacing system with the external velcro strap is simple enough but I think that a Boa system would provide tighter and more even pressure when doing up the boots. When tightened up too much the velcro strap places too much pressure in one spot which isn't comfortable plus may affect blood flow on those colder days when that is needed.
Boa systems would most likely add cost to the boot and make it less of a good deal, plus Boa systems tend to breakdown. I have replaced many Boa systems over years of using them in various road shoes, however, they provide for snug and even tightening of cycling shoes and make for a very comfortable fit.
The velcro strap on the Glacier boot is simple and easy, but I feel that it will be one of the limiting factors in the longevity of the Glacier boot. Either the velcro will start to weaken or the strap will start to fray and weaken and I see that down the road I will either need to replace the boot or have the strap repaired at a tailor. The Boa system would eliminate this problem.
Quality Price ValuePurchased during Garneau's Black Friday Sale from the clearance section. Ordering shoes online is always a bit of a gamble (and a hassle if they have to be returned). Fortunately, the sizing chart suggestions were correct in my case. I take a 43 in Shimano and Sidi and a size 43 in these colder weather Garneau shoes allow me a bit of extra room for two thin socks as the forefoot of the shoe is generously-sized. I'm using them for fatbiking with an spd pedal. I purchased a pair of Shimano cleat adapters that provide "pontoons" on either side of the cleat to allow for more stability when walking and also protect the cleat from unnecessary wear when off the bike.
These shoes are comfortable and keep me a lot warmer than I expected them to. No regrets.
