    I can't decide what to get and zappos and runner's world have too many choices. I will be running on snow/mud trails and slippery pavement (all in the same run). I'm not rich. What do you guys like?

    You can be a man and just run with whatever you have.

    Inov-8 has a lot of good trail shoes, check out their stuff. Pricey though.

    I say this. I don't know because I don't have them yet.
    I have speeds on their way though.

    Inov's look great but their out of my price range. If I needed a pure hiker those high top Roclite 400 would be the way I go. I still have six year old Merrils hanging on in that role.

    I live next to a ski resort so I have to run on the road to get there and then in same shoes try not to slide down the muddy/ snowy trails. Running in the winter here is pretty fun actually.

    This has not much to do with being a man right? Running on bad shoes really cost me some bad injurys in the past, which you don't want

    Runners world is awesome, let them test your feet and believe what they are trying to sell you. Its always better then the crap you buy in normal sport stores

    I have shoes from New Balance, absolutely love them. Never heard of them before (i only knew nike, adidas.. you know..the ones that can afford big commercials) but they are really sweet for my feet.

    Runners world adviced them too me.

    I took a look at the Inov product line and they seemed to be priced pretty comparably to what I'd consider other good shoes. I feel like this is an area you should avoid being frugal on, since good running shoes can really help protect your feet (and the higher end ones tend to last a bit longer).

    I live in colorado now, and we have to climb/run up pikes peak about 3 times a month for training. I use these to avoid injury. They work well on icy pavement as well as snow or frosted hard surfaces. For 20 bucks you cant beat em'.

    I considered those last winter but I didn't know how they would hold up and perform. If they're rugged and won't trip me up then that's the way I'll go.

    I always buy good shoes but I can't print up my own money to buy $150- shoes I'll only wear once a week in the winter.
