Nike’s Rival Shield Is the Running Shoe You Need for Winter

These water-repellent running sneakers are back, just in time for the moody weather change.

Winter running demands more out of running sneakers than summer temperatures do. As daylight savings time comes hurtling towards us (get ready for an extra hour this Saturday), it’s time to gear up for cold and dark runs. The Nike renew rival shield running sneaker is a sleek upgrade to the former Nike Shield that survived the winters of 2017 and early 2018.

Whether you’re an up-and-out person or a post-work kind of runner, you need a shoe that lights up the night. Reflectivity is critical during these dimly lit months, and the detailing on the Rival Shield has you covered. A water-repellent upper in grey, green or blue paired with a toggle lacing system means no fumbling with knots while you’re wearing mittens. It’s time to fight foul weather with a little help from new kicks.
