I finally got my shoes studded (sheet metal screws screwed into the soles) for extra traction in the winter. I had resisted the idea for the last two winters because…really? It seems so…final. Well, now that I’ve run in studded shoes I’d say, do it or have it done if you plan on winter running. The traction upgrade is Spider-Man level.
Also, the “stud” jokes almost tell themselves.
