Win­ter Shoe Re­view

8 New Styles for Cana­dian Weather

Canadian Running - - FEATURES -

The Snowcross is a beast of a shoe. In re­cent years, it’s been the most talked about win­ter run­ning shoe we’ve tested, and for good rea­son. It was among the first to em­brace the idea that a win­ter trainer should be able to lit­er­ally do bat­tle with a rag­ing bl­iz­zard. The Snowcross is built upon an ex­tremely ag­gres­sive, toothy out­sole. Its deep chevrons dig in and grip snow and han­dle ice fairly well also, although they are lack­ing spikes. Up top, the booty con­struc­tion has an outer layer, so it’s like your feet are wear­ing a wa­ter­proof win­ter jacket. It zips up to keep any de­bris out. Of course, the Snowcross is a heavy shoe with a weighty price tag. But if you are faced with ex­treme weather, it may just be the right shoe to keep you run­ning this win­ter.
