I have been wearing my first pair of Vibrams exclusively since spring of last year. Now the winter has set in with full force here with minus temps, and it's just too cold to wear my Speeds.
I have been forced to dig out one of my old pairs of shoes, and I can tell you, I am hating it. This has put me on the hunt for warmer minimalist shoes (dammit, why aren't the Lontras out, yet
I have been looking at the Stems and have a couple of questions:
1) Are they any warmer than VFFs in cold and/or rainy/snowy weather when you wear socks in them?
2) I've read on another barefoot blog that sharp stones etc. can puncture the sole, is that true?
3) What have your experiences been with the sizing? (I'm a M43 in Speeds.)
The main reason I haven't bought them is because I am undecided if they would make a good cold weather minimalist shoe. Or should I rather invest in another pair of Vibrams for spring and wait for the Lontras to come out next fall?
Thanks for your recommendations, take care.
