In relation to the coverage of the Pearlizumi Barrier Lite Shoe Covers, I have worn these shoe covers with great results when it is in the mid-seventies or in the mid-thirties. Pearlizumi designed this shoe cover with the concept of aerodynamics in mind. Therefore, it is extremely tight fitting and not the most breathable. The only open slits on the shoe cover are for the cleat and heel. In a way, this design is what makes the shoe cover so versatile. After using this shoe cover in blistery conditions with a thin wool sock, my feet became warm quickly and did not go numb for even a second. The shoe covers can certainly be worn as temperatures elevate but they are specifically designed for a time trial or criterium effort that is shorter in length. After being so impressed with how the shoe covers performed, it was imperative to dive into the construction and design.
