Topic - Snow/Ice Running

yorkshireman - on 18 Dec 2012
Winter is properly here and we have deep snow all around. My usual forest running trails have been packed down to make XC ski trails so its adding an extra challenge to my training.

Normally I just suck it up, and treat the extra effort involved as a kind of cross training, but it does make it hard to get the distance in and after a while it does stop being fun. Anyone experimented with snow-specific footwear? I'm running in a pair of Brooks Cascadia 7 trail shoes which I really like, but they're not really made for that.

I did consider these, which have the benefit of being able to be changed to different shoes. A bit like snow chains for feet.

But I'm tempted to go for something dedicated like these. Aside from anything they would keep my feet warm and dry.

Interested to hear thoughts - besides everything else, buying some new kit will inspire me to get outside when its lashing it down with snow!
