Hello -

Looking for opinions since I am still new to the 'barefoot' walking...

In search of some winter boots for WI, and cannot seem to find any true barefoot ones that I like... I am considering the following...  Do you think the heel to toe drop would be low enough on these that I could still do the 'forefoot walking' I have become accustomed to since switching to VFF's?

Any other suggestions are appreciated!

Thank you! Smiley

For me, I would either go with the Neos Villager Overshoe or my Vivobarefoot Highs with some gaiters.  The Sorels look like they have a fairly significant heel to toe drop and a thick sole. 

The Neos Villager have the superlite sole:  The lightest and most flexible outsole we have ever made. Low profile design and lightweight construction make this sole perfect for commuting or active outdoor sports like snowshoeing and even winter running.

or even the Eskimo Boot:

oh god that's too weird, i got my first pair (Treksports) at REI also. I was just asking because when i was in Benchmark the guy made a comment how "a teacher as BSU has about 13 pairs of these things". Just seeing if by random coincidence that person was you haha.
