I switch to other shoes (usually wear VFFs) in the winter if it's wet or there's snow - mostly because there's a lot of wet areas here and the between the toes area on my VFFs tend to get soaked and uncomfortable, plus cold = no fun. I alternate between Nike Frees and Merrels (glove I think?).

Hi Cindy,

I live in Calgary, Alberta Canada. Get's pretty cold up here in the winter. I plan to keep running in my Vibram 5-Fingers. So far so good. I've been out in the snow and ice down to -5C (thats 23 F). My guess is I'll be fine down to about -10C.

Thanks, I found some good ones to share in all my shopping! Puma makes some pretty flat winter boots I am going to order. Tried them on at the outlet mall they were a little too small. But I liked the flat sole. I also found a pair of very flat Doc Martens, again too small so I didn't get them. The Pumas are cheaper so they are the winner! www.shop.puma.com/Women/Footwear/Boo

I have the Vivobarefoot off road hi, which is a waterproof hiking boot. It works well but can be a little pricey if you don't get them on sale.

If you need something taller, VB has the boxing boot and a new Vienna boot. Although the price of the Vienna is prohibitive ($190).

I live in Upstate NY and get a lot of snow/rain/ice in the winter. I have been looking for boots that fit minimalist criteria and haven't really found much, especially at a reasonable price. Anyone have suggestions?
