    Just keep running barefoot as the weather changes and you will adapt. Unless you have circulation problems, 0C should be no problem. Below freezing slush mixed with salt is a really bad idea, fresh snow and slush are bad ideas, but packed snow can be OK, depending. One key to running BF comfortably in the cold is to wear an extra layer because you lose so much heat through your feet. You'll also find your feet to be more sensitive, so gravel sections that give you no problem in summer may be a little much.
