Same as above but less flexible
Same as above but more absorbent of both water and gravel and even heavier when wet. Turning them inside out helped, but best in dry conditions.
-Warm when wet (yay wool and neoprene)
- Neoprene started to wear out on the first run.
-WARM/HOT on the coldest days
-Sole material secure and flexible
-Flexible: if I do slip I can compensate.
Vive minimalist running!
-High Cuff keeps snow out of my socks
-No shopping for the upper material
-Improved appearance when dunked into an Indigo Bath
- Continual Fulling for perfect fit
-Welcoming at 5 AM in February
-Warm when wet
-Hand Spun Wool!
- Excellent ground feel
-Water resistant if WELL greased (see previous post for how they looked after a year of hard use)
-Used a Pattern (slightly modified), from Sharon Raymond's book: How To Make Simple Shoes For Women
- WARM in the summer
-Leather Stretched: I didn't use a last, but could adjust
- Natural Rubber wears out (I still love it)
-Required Some Shopping (Link above is also for Rubber Sole material)
-Excellent Ground Feel but also protective
-Hard wearing soles
-Easy on/off for TRUE Barefoot running on nice bits of sidewalk, grass and dirt.
-Get wet (could be coated with something)
- Brand New so I don't know as much about them as I will!
