Outfitter Footwear: Winter Trail Runners

posted: 02/20/2000

Long gone are the days of Moon Boots and après-ski footwear furry enough to double as twin shih tzus. Shoes for skiers in the '00s are cool. And there are enough styles out there to satisfy the Imelda Marcos in you¿which is a good thing, since you may want a pair from each of these specialty categories.

Winter Trail Runners
Nutshell: Hey, if you're hardcore enough to run in wintertime, you deserve a good, waterproof shoe with positive traction.
Wear Them: Speeding along snow-covered or icy trails.
Caution: If you're going to have only one shoe in your quiver, this one's awfully specialized; won't keep you warm when just strolling around.
Key Models: Designed for snowshoe racing and trail running, the waterproof Salomon Raid C/D ($119; shown here) has a grippy sole and neoprene at the ankle to keep out snow. Montrail's Java GTX ($120) has a full Gore-Tex bootie. The Ice Blade Waterproof by Merrell ($115) is designed for winter trail running, but is more of an insulated, waterproof, midheight cross trainer. "> Check out Slip-Ons
