Vibram Fivefingers: Ice and Snow are No Match for My Monster Shoes

I’ve gotten a lot of questions lately about how well the Vibram Fivefingers handle in the cold winter weather. I’ll have much more to say about this in an upcoming videocast, but for now, the pictures below ought to answer that question well enough – sub-10 degree temperatures = no problem for my KSO’s!

    “Pics or it didn’t happen!” …oh, it did! Fantastic photos. Maybe I won’t wait until Spring for trying out Vibrams. Socks?

    • Pete Larson says:

      Thanks Stephen! – Regarding socks, yes, I use Injinji’s with them. Feet
      stayed nice and warm despite the weather! -Pete

  2. Which socks are you using? I have the Injinji socks, but I know there are wool ones that I dont have. And did you get the shoes wet? It sucks when they get wet lol.

    • Pete Larson says:

      Steph – I just use Injinji Micros – keep me plenty warm. Didn’t get wet on
      this run, but I loved running through puddles in the summer! -Pete

  3. How do you keep the snow out of the shoes? My experience with snow deeper than about 20cm (8 in) is that no matter what, if you aren’t wearing boots then snow will get in. Maybe you’ve got some kind of gaiters?
