The $135 shoes fit well and run fine on packed snow, wet Replica Chopard watches pavement, plowed city sidewalks, and winter trails. Grip is good on snow, though the rubber still slips on ice.The shoe weighs 13.8 ounces for a men’s size 9, 12.5 ounces for a women’s size 8, this a reasonably light winter trailrunner.From my training runs to races, the shoes have been warm to temps down around ten degrees. I just returned from Thailand where I spent two weeks working with Trip Jennings, one of the athletes feature in this month’s Adventure Issue, on his Elephant Ivory Project.
The 27-year-old filmmaker is using a mix of science and Replica Franck Muller watches adventure to slow poaching. We were in Bangkok, one of the world’s biggest illegal ivory hubs, to kick off the year-long project. Poachers in Africa send raw ivory to Thailand, where sculptors turn it into art in Thailand and then send it to markets in China and Japan. It’s a hot, though highly illegal, commodity in Bangkok, and we were trying to find who was buying it and where.
They excel in wintertime road running. But on trails, there are some issues. Namely, Saucony's (saucony) gaiter system is lacking. The zipup Replica Zenith watches gaiters go ankle high and keep the snow out for packed trails, but they don’t cinch tight around the ankles, which I find somewhat annoying. You cannot run through deep snow and expect to keep your feet dry.On a recent orienteering event, where I ran on and off trail, snow had packed inside the gaiters by the end of the 1.5hour race. The shoes were fast, and my feet felt warm enough during the entire race, but when I took my shoes off in a warming hut at the finish line, snow clogged the area between the gaiters and the laces.Overall, the ProGrid Razors are solid.
