Gear Review: Pearl Izumi SyncroSeek III WRX Trail Runners

For hardcore runners who won't let a little snow stop them from running outside, you need a waterproof sneaker that has a rugged sole. I tested out these Pearl Izumi SyncroSeek III WRX trail runners ($120), and was floored by how much I loved them.

Even in 20° F temps my feet stayed toasty warm, and after a 40-minute run through snow-covered woods trails, these shoes were completely dry. The upper part of the shoe is actually one seamless piece with the tongue attached, so no wind or wetness had any chance of getting to my feet. The rugged soles gave me incredible grip, even on slippery hills and uneven terrain. I really liked the way the shoe felt rigid and sturdy on my feet, which gave me a feeling of stability and strength. Another plus? I hardly felt like I was wearing anything since these trail runners are so lightweight. Although these retail for $120, I found them for $80 here.

If you've never tried Pearl Izumi sneakers on your tootsies, you're really missing out. Check out more pics below.

These Pearl Izumi trail runners definitely get a hearty double thumbs-up in my opinion. If you've used gear that you want others to know about, share it in the Good Gear/Bad Gear community group.

Ooh, I like those- wish they sold them in my town. (I've never bought shoes online without them somehow always being too small!)
