    I wonder if sockwas would be good for running a 5k. I'm seriously thinking of doing it even though I'm not presently a runner. (The 5k is near the end of April.)

    If you're running in cold temps, then thick sole is what you want. Running for 10 years in Edmonton Alberta area and you want insulation between your feet and ground! Tried everything minimalist and my feet froze!

    Sockwas are my shoes of shoes here in winterpeg. Just like bill said a thicker sole when the temps hit colder -20C°. Also a good pair of merino wool socks will go a long way in keeping you comfortable.
