Best Gear for Winter Workouts: 2020

We’re excited to bring you the best gear for winter workouts from Ryne Melcher, our Director of Performance Footwear and Kintec Run Clinics.

Not only is Ryne our performance footwear expert and buyer, he’s run a million miles, and so many ultra-marathons we’ve lost count! Plus, you’ll often find him testing out new footwear while running the North Shore trails and scaling mountains.

Ryne invites you to join him, and our Kintec Run Leaders, for our Run Clinics starting Feb. 10 & 11. If you need extra encouragement and motivation, check out our 5 great reasons to get out and stay active this winter.

Drop by a Kintec store near you to check out this amazing gear and find your perfect fit!
