    Just wanted to put a good word in for the Vibram bormios.

    I, for one, enjoy having freaky monkey feet

    I love having monkey feet...
    But I'm still glad to live where real cold isn't an issue.
    My "cold weather shoes" are KSO Treks.

    Primal cold weather options...
    Hard to see in this pic, but Cody Lundin thinks that shorts and a couple of pairs of wool socks are the answer.

    I'm looking for a winter hiking boot, and right now I'm thinking wool socks, thick felt boot liner, and insulated NEOS overboots

    Anyone have a good idea on a Primal-ish dress shoe? I would be willing to pay good money for a pair.

    Size 14 or 15 US depending on the make.

    I had a rather wet time of it over winter, I have KSO Trek Sports which I love, except when I walk to work and it is or has been raining and spent a day with soggy tootsies. Would be interested next year getting a pair of something waterproof but minimalist too, ended up often walking in my crocks then changing at work. But as I am from the southern hemisphere we are heading into summer now so warmer dryer weather and feet (hahaha)

    I hope my vibram boots (see avatar) will do. I only bought them this summer, so no idea if they will withstand the cold. I have greased them with beeswax, so a bit of rain should be no problem. I also bought lot of socks with separate toes to go in the vibrams.

    Could some one tell me if vibrams would work for me? I'm missing the better part of my big toe on the left foot. I would have to order them online so I can't try them out at a store. I'm just wondering. I've gone barefoot most of my life when possible so I'm very interested in these. Thanks!

    I bought one of these kits (the cheaper version from Michael's for $15) and did it up with suede lacing instead of the lame shoelaces that came with it. (I also ripped out the crappy insole it came with.) I'll hit the bottoms with beeswax and let y'all know how they do. I think with thick socks they should get me through winter.

    From what I understand, you'd have some problems with rubbing and possibly keeping them on. Most people missing bits of toe do.

    That's what I was thinking. Thanks!
