Running in a Tropical Storm

Gear

Join me for a wet trail run in Tallahassee.

This wasn’t a waterfall yesterday.

As you can see, this was a lot of fun. Anytime in Florida when you can exercise in the rain without lightning and thunder…

I was wondering what the best running shoe is for wet weather. That has been my frustration with trail shoes. I believe that not all trail shoes are tested with wet weather. Many of my shoes have proven to be super slippery on roots and rocks during the rain.

I have even resorted to wearing some glorified water shoes to go running in. They are great for traction. Very low to the ground of course. But the bottom is constructed of rubber that is very similar to that of a tire. Some of my shoes have more of a slick rubber.

What is the best wet weather running shoe? I’m talking off road here.
