They just fill with water though, i had some waterproof boots once and they were a complete waste of money.

Had mine for longer than I can remember & never once have they filled with water & I've ridden in some horrendous weather conditions & as you know BBH has some huge deep puddles in the winter.
Not quite sure how you can dismiss winter boots as a "complete waste of money". Perhaps they didn't work for you but its not only you're opinion that counts Mr T on this forum , or perhaps it is & I'm on the wrong forum these days :roll:

Calm down Mr Behind, you must really love those winter boots Wink I just found my feet got just as wet in heavy rain and going through big puddles. I know some boots have a neoprene top, which i'd imagine improve matters, but personnally i'd rather go with Seal Skinz and overshoes.
Lee, i always seem to suffer with chillblanes when my feet get wet and cold, it gets very painful so try to keep the tootsies dry.

Buff. Use it all the time when it gets proper chilly. Keeps head & ears warm & sweat out of face. Gonna look for a long necked base layer this year. Keep the throat toasty as I lose my voice easily, whcich is a shame as I've so much wisdom to share.

Another vote for boots here, I have a pair of Northwave Celsius with a neoprene collar at the top and goretex lining which are ace at keeping my feet toasty through the winter and rain. Never had trouble with my feet getting soaked with them on however I found that with my Sealskins water would run down my leg and fill them up.

Buffs are great for keeping my ears and neck warm, I have one with a fleece collar for when its uber cold. In the past when its been really freezing out I've worn a pair of latex gloves under my gloves which has helped to keep my hands warm. Handy for when your gloves get soaked through on a cold, wet day too Wink

Top tip that! I used to use them when cleaning the cars in the winter, life saver!

Another vote for some winter boots! Shimano goretex jobs here with some lovely merino wool socks is an absolute treat! It also saves the massive faff that is overshoes! :evil:

I'd also add from my experience that a decent set of glove liners are really 'handy'. Any glove warm enough in its own right in the coldest parts of winter is usually way too bulky. I have some sealskinz liners which are really sleek and keep your hands warm even if your gloves get soaked through! Smile
