I live at Lake Tahoe and enjoy running 3-5 miles, 3-4 times per week along the paved multi-use path by my home. However, it doesn't usually get plowed in the winter. Since I bought these shoes, I've been able to continue running on the path, or in the road, even in snow-covered icy conditions. The metal studs along the bottom allow me to stay focused on the ask at hand, rather than tread cautiously. I feel sure footed with every step. I use care not to run much on clear pavement though. When I return home, my feet have stayed warm and dry, even in sloppy conditions. I have recommended these shoes numerous times to people, and will never have to use SnowTrax again.
