Hi All, I've got a question regarding which would be a better winter VFF: the Trek Ascent Insulated or the CVT Wool?  As somebody who hasn't worn a pair of VFFs before, I'm not really sure.  I've been wearing Merrell Vapor Gloves (and love them), but they just aren't cutting it in the winter.  On the one hand, it seems like the Trek Ascent Insulated should be warmer (it is insulated, after all, right?).  But one of the things I've noticed about my Vapor Gloves is that I really feel the cold ground coming up through the soles of the shoe.   And when I add up the thickness of the insole, midsole, and rubber, the CVT Wool is 12mm while the Trek Ascent Insulated is only 8mm.  But maybe the other design qualities of the Trek Ascent Insulated make up for it?

I'd love to hear people's opinions on which one is better for keeping feet warm during the winter.  (I wouldn't be running in either of these. I'd just be wearing them to work, around the house, etc.)

I'm not sure if this is the right place so please move or delete my post if it isn't  Cheesy

Firstly I have a wide foot.

I am looking for some decent flip flops (we call them thongs in Australia but I think you folk know thongs as something else)   Cheesy

Basically just to wear on weekends inside the house.   Something that slips on and off quickly as I move to and from the lounge   (weekends are my rest days).   Sandals aren't as comfortable as flip flops so I reserve them for walks to the shop. 

I'm amazed at the scarcity of Zero Drop Flip Flops.  It seems most companies are putting heels on them.  How stupid is that. 

Anyhow I have found some flat ones e.g. Rainbow Sandals and others but they all seem to have arch support.  Rainbow have offered to make me a custom pair without arch support but at a cost of $110 U.S. plus postage to Australia.

Would anyone know of some decent flip flops that are completely flat with no arch support?  Would arch support even be an issue if I'm only wearing them sitting at the computer or walking to the kitchen etc?

Hope someone can help.

They're only waterproof up to the top of the toes, and they're not thermally insulated. I'd suggest wool-based toe socks for use with them if you're walking in snow.

Mine are waterproof (to the bottom of the ankle bone, as mentioned above). It's entirely possible that you got samples from a bad batch.

These shoes bummed me out big time. Thought they would be my saviour, in the snow, with my gammy neuroma.

First step in snow, saturated toes. Numb within minutes.

Supplier very kindly replaced them, must be faulty, replacement shoes, hello, exactly the same problem. In freezing weather, my toes went dangerously numb within minutes.

Threw the damn things out.

Any updates on a good spray? I live in the snow but have a Morton's Neuroma so vibram's are the only relief I get from the goddamn agony of regular shoes.

Have been getting by with coating shoe goo between toe webbing to waterproof, it kind of works, but cements the toes together.

I use the blue seventy brick bag. Not too big,  but great for running

I've been lucky enough to go through 4 pairs of the original road glove,  but they're getting really hard to find. What shoes out there would be the most similar? Was thinking the vapor glove 2 or the bare access 4
Thanks all.

I broke a pinky toe awhile back and the doctor wanted me to buddy tape it to the next toe and wear normal shoes.  That REALLY didn't work out; so, I decided to make a splint out of a paper clip.   I made a How-To page on my website.

Note:  the page layout might change in the future but, I will make sure this link always goes to the page.

I want to buy vivobarefoot only - have no chance to visit shop.
I could not understand which size to get - I have measured my feet and it is 28.5 cm exact - both of them ( using the paper and wall method ).
I have two pairs of Vibram Five Fingers with both size EUR 45.
Also, I usually wear 12 US which stands for 30 cm length - but that kind of shoes usually too narrow for me - I have wide feet.
So what would you advice for me? Grab 45 or 46? Also, I plan to use Correct Toes with Vivobarefoot.

Not sure if it will replace the vibram classic
