What are your thoughts on minimalist shoes for running in packed snow?

    heat-wise, I don't think VFFS are all that bad as long as one doesn't plan on using them as a backup for a winter barefoot run. I'm torn on them traction-wise, as I can see where they would be decent on ice (lots of surface area) but in slush/snow I had a hard time with mine.

    I'm not a barefoot runner,

    I'm not a barefoot runner, but I plan on using my Merrell Sonic Gloves. Haven't tried them in snow yet but they seem to do well when its wet outside. I didn't notice them being hot.

    I'm shocked no one has

    I'm shocked no one has mentioned Teva Protons/Sling Kings. They are Neoprene and as boat shoes offer excellent traction. My MT 100's are good, too but they are too much shoe for me now. I run in packed snow and ice alot in the winter in the city.
