Like the Salomon Snowcross CS, the uninsulated Winter 110 is essentially a minimalist running shoe (9 ounces; 4-millimeter heel-to-toe drop) wrapped in a waterproof-breathable gaiter. The outsole lugs shed snow like a champ.

Got Gaiters? Our favorites are still Outdoor Research's light, packable, breathable Verglas ($54).
