I need to dig this bag up. I ended up trying velotoze, they aren't durable enough. I tore them in a few places on the top just from walking across a snowed over bridge! Yea, they were only $15, but it's not worth it.
I also have size 46, so their biggest size was still SUPER tight to get on. I saw some specialized overshoes in my LBS, hoping there are some good options for less than $70 out there.
I'm mainly looking to keep wind off my feet, and maybe a little insulation if possible. :beerchug:

If you are only looking for the wind protection with some insulation I would not use the Velotoze (they are more for the rain) but rather some overshoes with some material similar to the Gore Windstopper. Many manufacturers offer this type of WS overshoes.

I use these and I can warmly recommend them:

or even with more insulation:
