Gloves for my feet - the foul weather version ...

In the last post I said they were fine in foul weather ... boy, was I wrong :}

The recent cold-snap, with temperatures just above freezing point, and wind-chills pushing it well below I felt compelled to seek an alternative to my current standard-footwear. So far into the -admittedly mild - winter my trusted KSOs have given me enough warmth, but no more; this morning I felt fairly unhappy, and my toes were complaining quite bitterly about the cold and the abuse I gave them. So I looked through the range of available Vibram FiveFingers to see what alternatives I might find, and lo and behold, I stumbled upon the"flow" model, which has a neoprene upper and lining.

Went to the shop at lunch-time, found that the flows are a slightly tighter fit than the other models, and had to get 44s rather than 43s, but that worked out OK. On the way home my feet were the warmest part of my body - despite the excellent wind-proof shell, and three layers of merino clothing on the upper body, a nice long walk home, all up (and a fair bit upwards). Very happy with the latest find!
