10 Winter Running Essentials

All the running gear to keep you warm and dry on your winter runs—"Baby, it's cold outside," won't stand as an excuse not to go.
Running in the right sock (or wrong sock) can make all the difference in your winter workout. You want a moisture-wicking sock that’s thick and warm enough to prevent frostbitten toes, but that isn’t too bulky to cram into your shoe. The Smartwool PhD Toe Sock Mini controls the temperature in your feet and blocks the bacteria that make them reek. Its individual toes are intended to prevent blisters, and even though they’re partially made of merino wool, these socks won’t itch—promise. They cover the balls of your feet to ensure there isn’t a slit of skin between your pants and shoes that’s vulnerable to the wind—plus they’re pretty comfy, too. ($21, smartwool.com)
