veloToze was created by a group of cyclists in Sonoma County, California.
They wanted to enjoy their rides in the rain or cold and still end up with warm, dry feet. Since launching with Tall Shoe Covers and Short Shoe Covers in 2014, veloToze have expanded their line to include Helmet Covers, Toe Covers, Active Compression Cycling Socks, Waterproof Cycling Gloves, and other products that help you Outsmart The Elements.
Whether it’s race day, training day or just another day riding to the office, their products will help you enjoy the ride.
veloToze™ shoe covers are made of a flexible, lightweight material that is waterproof, windproof and aerodynamic.
Because of the unique, patented design, they don’t have vulnerability points like zippers or velcro. They are also light and compact, folding up to the size of a spare tube, which allows them to easily fit in a jersey pocket or saddle bag.
“We decided to totally rebuild the shoe cover from the ground up,” says Joe Feng, Product Inventor and veloToze™ Co-founder. “We looked at other products that are waterproof, lightweight and aerodynamic and came up with a completely different approach to the shoe cover.”
The company is founded by a team of loyal cyclists in Sonoma County, California that wanted to ride regardless of the weather. But when they tried the different shoe cover options currently available on the market, they found that none of them kept their feet dry, even in light rain. They also found that they got heavy when wet, were bulky and were not very aerodynamic.
“We have been testing the product for months now and while we’re excited to share these with the greater cycling community, we are really excited to have a great product that we can use ourselves,” said Nick Kersmarki, VP of Sales. “We’ve had great initial interest from commuters who have to ride regardless of the weather and from pro teams looking for an aerodynamic solution for time trials.”
