When you are running in the winter you have the following options to keep your feet comfortable, dry, and warm:
- Duct tape the toes of your shoes to try to keep your toes dry, and possibly make a fashion statement.
- Wear running shoes that will protect your feet from the elements.
- Do nothing and run miserably in wet, cold feet.
You don’t have to get frostbitten toes after a run in the winter because your feet got wet running through fresh fallen snow, and you certainly don’t need to waste your precious duct tape on your shoes to keep your feet dry. Certain running shoes are made waterproof and have lots of traction and grip that will make a big difference when running in the winter elements. Winter running shoes also have extra protection (rubber) around the toes to keep them dry and protected from snow and ice.
A few shoes that are great for winter running are the Brooks Ghost GTX and Saucony Xodus. Stop by Complete Runner today to check them out (styles and colors may vary from pictures shown) and our other winter running apparel, traction aids, and exercise equipment for those of you who would rather be running inside than in the single digit temperatures.
When is the last time you used duct tape on your running shoes?
