Greetings, Vinglers! Today I am hoping to pick your brains on running shoes. ...but not just any running shoes.
That's right - I am talking about shoes that can withstand the sketchy terrain that comes with a Midwestern winter. The weather is finally starting to cool down, which has been making it easier to get out there and run. The coming of Autumn also means one thing, however: winter is fast approaching! You see, for the last six winter seasons of my life, I have had the privilege of maintaining my "form" (far from flawless, let's be honest) during the colder months from the comfort of a dry, heated gym (thank you, college debt!) This year, however, I am finding myself gym-less for the first time in over half a decade.
(PC: thesalmonfarm.org because Bowser is too much of a Diva to play in the snow) Of course, just because I'll be stuck out in the snow doesn't mean I plan on giving up! Therefore, I want your help! I haven't bought running shoes in over six years (my K- Swiss shown above will not cut it this winter), so I am a little out of the loop on today's top brands! Here is a list I found with some recommended models: Running Times 2015 Winter Shoe Guide For anyone else interested in winter outdoor running, check out these tips on how to handle the icy and cold conditions on the run.
What is your favorite brand of running shoes? Do you have experience running outdoors during the winter months (in a location where there is potentially snow/ice)? Do you have any experiences (good and bad) of the shoe brands/models listed above? Any wisdom and advice you can give will be greatly appreciated! Thank you! DaniVO
