I had a set of the endura ones. They broke a year later... I called endura and they sent me brand new ones.

What more could you want? :D

(Also see this thread praising them).

Also I find over shoes make summer shoes into passable winter shoes...

For value for money you can't beat Aldi's.
Not particularly waterproof but do the job nontheless.

Here in our mucky Devon lanes overshoes are an essential daily wear item from about mid October to April. For a number of years I've been using Ozzo neoprene - as much for the insulation as the waterproofing. Yes, they fall to bits after a season's wear, so are more or less a disposable item. But on the credit side, they noticeably extend the life of your cycling shoes, they make it unnecessary to buy a separate pair of winter cycling boots , and they're not expensive. Worth every penny, as far as I'm concerned.
