For serious runners dealing with ice or snow on trails, try these snowcross shoes

How serious are you about running in the ice and snow? For those who do want to run year-round on trails that haven't been cleared of the muck, the Salomon Snowcross 2 is the running shoe for you. It looks more like a cross-country ski boot than a running shoe, with a zippered upper/integrated gaiter that runs all the way up to high above your ankle. But this is a running shoe, specifically Salomon's Speedcross trail running shoe underneath the covering. It's got an aggressive outsole with plenty of grip to help you stick to the trail, and the waterproof upper keeps your feet nice and dry.
