Minimalist footwear for Chicago winter and running in said winter?

I run in Vibram Five Fingers and normally wear either moccasins or a pair of Sambas that I've removed the stiff plastic insole and arch support from. None of this is gonna cut it here in Chicago for too much longer.
I'm not married to the Five Fingers and I know there are less ninja-esque options, but which are good ones? It'd be especially good if some combination of special socks or something will let me use them year round.
And for daily wear when things get nasty? I can take the arch support out of pretty much anything, I guess, but a flexible sole would be great. Mukluks? Space age material? What? Gotta be waterproof.
