I like wearing Tivas (they're like sandals) when walking, but I'm afraid to wear them while riding. God forbid, if I should ever fall, they'd offer no protection. So, I ride with boots and change into sandals when I get places. But, do you think I could wear sandals and then an overboot? How much pavement protection do you think they'd provide, if they ever had to?
I'm interested in the overshoes for work as I'm a truck driver and I also ride. Winter can be very brutal. I want pricing on different overshoes as they do not that have on their Web site.
Where can I find the Hair Armor. I went to their Web site but there is no way to order, only dealer info.
The article lists a phone number to call, and on the Web site, you can email them to order or for more information.
I was wery Interested in the Protect Your Feet & Bike items. I don't need them right now, but possibly in the future. I will share this info with others. Thanks for the write-ups.
