Minimalist for snowshoeing?

I went "barefoot" this summer and now own two pairs of VFF shoes and Merrell cross trainers. I suffered terrible discomfort in my hiking boots for a few years, and switching to minimalist shoes have eliminated that. I have been fine for everything so far, but my dilemma is the winter. What can I wear with my snowshoes?

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll start there. Snow falling hard in the mountains and I'm itching to get up there!


Last winter, I used the GoLite Quest Lite hiking boot. It's relatively lightweight at 17 ounces, and pretty close to waterproof (but not perfect). It is zero drop, but the upper is pretty stiff. I'm still looking for a better solution, but for now, they work for me.
