An old team I was on, had a Russian guy who rode everywhere, any weather, around Denver Colorado. He used a larger pair of shoes in cold weather, so he could wear thick wool hiking socks. From what I could manage to understand his feet never got cold.
I had been complaining about my feet being numb from the cold on a ride.
He was quite the character too.

I have 3 pairs of booties. From the insulated Gore booties, to the Pro Tarmac booites, to the 'Belgian' booties (ie thick socks). I'll pick which fits the weather best. Oh, and keep an eye on chainlove. They're running specials on the Mavic booties with the chemical warmer pocket in em off and on.

Me? I've got a serious case of the screw-its. Its cold (ish), windy, and overcast. Good day to not ride.
