Do they go in my shoes, over my shoes, under my socks? Why do the tights look like bell bottoms? My old Specialized tights weren't so odd. What's up?
It turns out that the shape of the Therminal Tights is designed to match the Specialized Defroster Boots. You can use one without the other, but look what happens when you put them together.
Step 1: Put on Your Therminal Tights
Step 2: Put on Your Defroster Boots
Put on your Defroster Boots (road unisex / trail unisex). Toss in chemical toe warmers if you are going to be in the very cold for a long ride. (We live in Iowa. It may not be northern Canada, but we do get our cold days!)
If you are using a different brand boot, or using shoes and neoprene shoe covers, that's okay.
Step 3: Zip and Stirrup
Now, pull the stirrups down and loop them under your boots.
You are ready to go ride. Any warm air that finds its way out of the top of your boots will stick around and warm your shins rather than being lost immediately to the atmosphere.
