The Best Winter Running Gear

Injinji Run 2.0 Original Weight Mini-Crew Socks

These toe socks will not only keep your feet extra warm during the winter, but dry and blister free, too. Though this version is a bit thicker than the lightweight, their mesh material helps maintain breathability. If you’re looking for even more protection and comfort, opt for the Midweight version, which are even thicker and provide extra cushion.

Fleece Gloves

Fleece gloves will absolutely ensure warm, cozy hands during winter weather running. There are lots of different running gloves by different companies, so it’s important to find the kind you like best. Fleece is definitely comfy, but some runners prefer waterproof gloves that can withstand rainy weather. Some even buy cheap gloves to toss during races. Keep a few pairs on hand for different types of weather and training.

Mizuno Warmalite® Headband

Maintaining your core body temperature means keeping your ears warm and toasty, too. This thick headband, which is also made with Warmalite® material, is a steal for only $14.99 and also reflects well at night.

HotHands Hand and Toe Warmers

In order to maintain your core body temperature, it’s important to make sure your hands and feet stay especially warm. The heat from these little packs can reach anywhere from 100 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit and can last up to 20 hours. They come in different temperatures, sizes, and types to fit the different needs of every type of runner.

Mizuno Blaze Warmer Tight with Warmalite®

These tights are lined with fleece. Thicker tights during the winter will keep your legs warmer and blood circulating better. The Blaze Warmer tights provide extra insulation thanks to Warmalite® material while still allowing for fast, quick movement during cold-weather workouts.

Mizuno Breath Thermo® Stretch Crew

Layers are essential for keeping warm during your winter workouts. This thermal will keep you warm and dry. Despite its long-sleeve, snug fit it still breathes well and keeps you warm without weighing you down.

Oiselle Big O Fleece Hoodie

Winter running gear can be expensive, but for a great piece of gear that will last, the investment is usually worth it— especially for a comfy sweater like this one. Oiselle does their best to provide comfy running clothes for women, made with lots of love and enthusiasm. This sweater will keep you cozy when you’re warming back up after a run in the snow. With two different colors to choose from, it’s got style and comfort wrapped up in one piece of extra-cozy apparel.

Asics Gel-Arctic® 4

These shoes are extra ideal for running in the snow. They provide plenty of traction on snow-covered surfaces and will keep you from slipping on ice. They’re designed to accommodate all types of runners and can even keep you from slipping on black ice. The traction on the bottom comes from little replaceable metal pins that help the shoe grip well, making running fast and steady through the winter easy and effortless.

Asics Down Jacket

A cozy down jacket is a must for staying warm while getting ready to run. They are a bit too heavy to wear while running, but are a great pre-workout accessory and will warm you right back up after a workout, too. A down coat can also be called a “puffer,” and it’s a good idea to look for one made with duck feathers, which are typically the warmest and most comfortable.

Mizuno Impermalite® Flex Jacket

 MiThe Mizuno Impermalite Jacket will withstand any type of winter weather. Layers are the key to keeping warm, but for snowy, rainy, or extra windy workouts, a resistant coat that can stand up against all types of weather is essential. Underneath a lightweight coat like this one, you can wear a fleece top or even a long sleeve running shirt.
