Pro Vision overshoes if they still do them - the water repellant type. And for ultimate comfort -- i.e warmth, combine them with a pair of Sealskin socks. May need to check your cycling shoes are big enough for the additional bulk of the sealskinz - dont think I've had cold feet with this combination - YET Rolling Eyes

Planet-X neoprene ovvershoes are very good you can get them off their website www.planet-x-bikes.co.uk and as FasT says the Sealskinz socks are very good and are 25 quid but I would seriously recommend them (I stood in some water with them on without my cycling shoes on and didn't no I had stood in water they are that good!)should be able to get them from your local cycle shop.

Bibtights - Any with a windtex cover as they will cover all conditions and have a degree of water proofing

Overshoes - Again any neoprene or windtex will do the job (and the sealskins if your feeling flush or any thick sock

I'm a cheapskate and bought my winter bibtights from Aldi - they've been fine so far. Why spend a fortune on something that's going to keep getting covered in crap, or torn if you come off on slippery roads?
