    The best running shoes I have

    First VJ and will be number one for me
    Thank you for make it the best trail shoes

    Holy Spikes

    These are by far the best winter shoes I've ever used. I haven't slipped once on squeaky snow, black ice, icy or snowy trails. It doesn't feel like I'm running with spikes, it feels like I'm running in a slightly wider MaXx. Wish they had a summer version of this shoe too because I would be living in them. I've been running between 60-80 mile weeks all winter on rough icy trails and they just don't slip. simply put, they really do have the BEST GRIP ON EARTH. Do your self a favor, quit putting screws in your shoes and get a pair of XERO's.

    They serve their purpose

    These shoes work great for running on ice, mud, and slush.


    Finally I’m running in the winter prepared for deeper snow and ice as trails transition at different elevations and exposure! Thanks for the heads up @therunningpublic podcast!
