All major bike clothing manufacturers offer winter bib tights with and without chamois. The latter are worn with biking shorts. In my humble opinion the very best in terms of comfort, fit, and durability are Assos. Very expensive, but worth every penny.

Toes covers or booties. They're available made of neoprene, which stops all the wind and helps trap in warmth. Take a look at Performance Bike or Bike Nashbar. They're available in a wide range of prices.
Or, you can do what I used to do as an impoverished student: stick your toes in a sandwich bag (not the ziploc-type) and then put your shoes on. No wind, and it traps all kinds of heat (and moisture).
Question – Does anyone know of a product out there that I can use to cover my shoes when riding?
I have clipless pedals and shoes that are super vented ... so water soak my shoes and feet when there’s water on the road. Short of buying fenders, does anyone know of a way to keep my feet dry (and warm)? (At the moment I’m thinking of switching out my clipless to platform pedals and using a more covered shoe for the rainy season.)
Also ... while I have a jacket to wear ... what do you do about shorts/pants? My riding shorts go to just above my knees, and it’s starting to get cold. I want to be a year-round commuter ... but ack ... it’s getting colder.
Thanks for any hints/insights.
