Spring is officially here, though it doesn’t necessarily feel like it as I write this, and I’m still pulling a pair of overshoes on when I head out of the door on the bike at the moment. 

I have tested a wide range of overshoes for our best cycling overshoes guide and continue to do so, trying new models and seeing what works and for what conditions and temperature ranges. After several months of testing, I’m ready with my full review of the Nalini B0W shoe covers.

The B0W overshoes from Nalini are lightweight fleece-lined overshoes which feature a DWR coating. They pull on and close at the rear using a zipper and are for road use for me, though you probably could away with an MTB cleat in the large shoe opening. I’ve gotten on very well with them throughout the winter and when not pulling on a heavier weight offering for freezing temperatures or very wet conditions they have become my go-to pair over the last several months.

For me, they sit alongside overshoes like the Sportful Fiandre booties and Assos GT Ultraz from my guide in terms of weight and style, with an excellent blend of lightweight warmth, fit, and quality.

Design and Aesthetics

Aesthetics-wise, it’s a pretty simple setup for the Nalinis. They are black and feature a reflective Nalini logo on the outside of each foot. There’s a good-sized reflective heel tab and zipper garage flap. Some contrast is also created by the light grey rubberised grip sections on the toe sections and underfoot loops. The dark colour and subtle logos mean they should pair well with a wide range of cycling kit. The overshoes are offered in incremental EU shoe sizes, sizes starting from 38-39 and rising to EU 46-47.
