The Best Winter Running Shoes

Whether you like it or not, winter is on its way. And while your feeds may be filled with cozy sweaters, crockpot recipes and at-home workouts you can do in a snowstorm (hello, ClassPass GO), how many times have you come across sneakers that are specifically designed to keep you warm during the cold-weather months? While winterized footwear isn’t exactly the most enticing topic to get us excited for the season, it is a necessity if you enjoy outdoor workouts or just want a warmer way to get to and from class. And with perks like quick-drying technology and fabrics that keep you warm, investing in a pair of winter sneakers is a total game-changer.
