Rain and snow and ice, oh my! Your spring and summer running shoes aren’t going to cut it in the winter. You don’t need to lose your stride for the next few months though—there are plenty of kicks that will stand up to extreme weather. Here are some of the best sneakers to keep you running during the cold winter months.
The Icebug DTS3 Bugrip GTX are ideal for running on frozen pavement and trails. They’re made with 19-carbide spikes that allow you to move comfortably on roads thick with slippery ice. You’ll feel stable running at any speed because they’re amply protected, low, smooth and entirely waterproof.
The Altra Footwear Lone Peak 3.0 Mid NeoShell Trail Running Shoe come with a thickly padded mid-cut collar that despite its appearance, won’t slow you down. It will, however, protect you from mud, while the breathable NeoShell exterior will protect you from getting wet.
The North Face Ultra MT are highly responsive, shock-absorbing and waterproof. They’re also very protective and come with a Vibram® Megagrip outsole that supplies solid grip and traction.
