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.

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.

If you want a similar look to US Olympic athlete leather gloves, try Burton's mittens

If you watched the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics this year, chances are you noticed the leather gloves worn by the U.S. team as it entered the stadium. Love them or hate them, the gloves made a big splash on social media, and anyone wanting a pair for themselves were informed at the Ralph Lauren website that they were sold out – at the cost of $995 a pair. OK, so maybe you didn't want them that badly anyway. But if you're going for a similar look, the Burton Work Horse Leather Mitt will keep you just as warm and only set you back forty bucks.
