Our Favorite Winter Running Shoes in 2020
There is still a lot of beautiful winter running to go out there and catch.
When the snow quickly piles up, packs down or turns icy, you want to have full-confidence in the shoes you put on. Constant slipping, wet-feet, salt, slush, ice and snow can end a good run early, or worse, keep you from going out at all.
A good pair of winter running shoes can keep you on track with your running routine and training without falling behind or losing progress.
So we've put together a quick list highlighting some of our favorite new running shoes that have us crushing our winter running so far, no matter the conditions.
"From weather-resistant to fully waterproof, these running shoes were made to combat all that winter can throw at you—while still allowing for superior performance and providing thorough comfort, of course."
Take a peak below and stop into Fleet Feet Syracuse to test out what shoe is best for you.
