Snow, sleet and slush will hold you back no more. These performance sneakers and accessories are designed to brave the elements so you can feel confident and strong during your next winter run. And while the picks will provide extra traction on the slippery, wet terrain, always use your best judgment—some days are just made for the treadmill.
With a welded waterproof upper, a synthetic toecap and a sole made with extra grip, these multi-sport shoes can handle wet trail. Plus, the lugged bottom will keep you feeling connected to the ground.
