So I've not seen a post discussing cold weather or wet weather running in the last few years. with the newer models, what are folks using to run in rains, sleet or snow? I'm making my first earnest attempt at winter running now that I have my asthma under control (cutting out 95% of my dairy intake was amazing).
Flows: I had a pair of these a number of years ago. I attempted to shovel snow in and they leaked like crazy and the neoprene did a great job keeping the cold water inside the shoe.
Bikila: I have a pair of these but it seems like the fabric would drink the rain or snow. I did a 10 mile run in them and they just did not shed any moisture at all.
Other thoughts? I suspect my KSOs and EL-Xs are a terrible idea when it gets cold.
i have used my KSO and KMD sport last winter for all the winter running ,
having said that your concept of winter might not be the same as mine.
over here temperature in winter rarely drops below minus 5 C
with the KSO you get wet feet withing the first couple of hundred meters , but as long as you are running, the cold isnt too bad.
The VFF do act like a wetsuit , keeping your feet wet , and moderately warm.
