Winter Shoe Review
8 New Styles for Canadian Weather
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.
