And if you're interested in minimalist shoes, Merrell’s Barefoot Run Trail Glove ($110) offers a thin layer of rubber between your foot and the ground. The soles have decent traction, and, while not waterproof, the uppers dry quickly if they get wet. I've worn the Trail Gloves without socks, but in soggy conditions I'd recommend a light wool layer to help avoid blisters. Happy running!
