I walk to class everyday in drifts of snow, plenty of ice and any weather in between. In the warmer months I was wearing the vapor glove which I love! But I figured wearing those through drifts of snow might result in frostbite. So I decided to try out these shoes and they were the perfect compromise! They keep my feet warm and dry, yet I don't lose the comfort of the barefoot shoe. I would really like to see more colors in this style.
