I recently ordered a pair of DASH RunAmocs, but was torn because I really liked the idea of the Ramblers.  They didn't seem as practical, though, since I primarily needed shoes for cold weather running and hiking.  So, my boyfriend, who happens to be the best boyfriend in the world, got me a pair for Christmas (and let me open them today!), and they are amazing.  Every time I try a new pair of minimalist shoes I think they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn...I really didn't think it could get any better than Stems.  But between the sheepskin insole and soft leather, I can't imagine anything more perfect on a cold day than the Ramblers.  I have to admit, the sole is a bit thicker than I like, but they look like they'll last forever.  Anyway, just wanted to share my new love/obsession!

Those look great! Curious, how much warmth does the sheep-lining add?

I've got a pair of sheep lined slippers and they are really warm. I'd be interested to see if your ramblers are warm out in the cold.

Thanks!  I've worn them in the 30s without socks and been reasonably comfortable, though adding a thin pair of Smartwool socks made my feet even happier. Smiley  I'm guessing that the sheepskin adds significant warmth, because the leather breathes really well, and the tops of my feet get cool while standing outside.  If Soft Star wanted to go really crazy they should make a cold-weather Rambler that's fully lined with sheepskin.

Dexter and monkeyshoes...I'll be sure to pass the messages on to my BF. Smiley
