Hi Jason,

I wondered if the Flow model keeps you warm even when you are running on a road with slush and cold water?
(I am from Canada and I was thinking buying them, because it's now too cold for my Sprint model, even with injiji socks.)

In slush and water you should be ok but they are not waterproof. My feet held up well in the snow without socks. If they start to get cold you can tighten your toes up a few times to get the blood pumping. I was definitely pleased as the temps dipped into the teens and I wasn't stuck with total ice cubes. I have held out on getting socks because the Flow has a tighter fit but I will be getting some to try out.

Hi Jason,

Been a Five Fingers fanatic since December and being in the cold weather season when I got them I bought the Flow. I am not a runner but I use them as a daily foot wear shoe and I love them. I even went out in a 15deg snow storm in December with no sox and they performed amazingly! going for KSO and KSO Trek for my next pairs. I may never wear conventional shoes again!!

Hello Jason,
I was wondering how well the flow held up on Ice and Snow. Did you find you slipped around alot? How was the traction on the ice and snow? I live in chicago and am looking to find a pair of vibram five fingers shoes for the winter and we tend to get a lot of ice and I am afraid the smooth bottom will cause me to slip and slide a lot. Please let me know what you found related to this. Thank you.
Robert

They are pretty bad on ice as there is no traction at all but great in fresh snow. I wish the flow treks came out in the US but they are UK only. Last year I ran in bikilas all winter and my feet got used to the cold but I kept it under 30 minutes to avoid frostbite.
