Just because you like to train through winter doesn't mean your feet have to be soggy and freezing when you do it. The lightweight, breathable North Face Ultra 50 GTX XCR has been waterproofed and windproofed by a Gore-Tex membrane, plus its Torque Control Technology guides pronation for runners with those pesky low arches. The shoe also has a plastic shank grafted into the midsole that hinders twisting to promote a more natural forward stride. ($110, thenorthface.com)
