If you’re not ready to let summer go (who is in Montana?), strap on a pair of Kross shoes and stubbornly run, splash, and scramble your way right past the autumnal equinox. Made by the Italian company Lizard, the super-lightweight, amphibious Kross forces a forefoot strike, making it a great option for the last few months of minimalist running before the snow flies and forces you back into big, toasty boots. The microfiber and 3D Air mesh allow water to escape and help feet dry quickly. And the grippy, multidirectional Vibram tread lets you negotiate slick banks with otter-like traction. A word of warning: the outsole is thin enough to transmit sharp rock points directly into your foot, so gravel roads, wade-fishing, and rugged, rocky terrain are out. Stick to moderate surfaces, though, and these featherweight slippers will make you feel like Hermes, flitting freely from one world to the next. $90; lizardfootwear.com
