    I have two pair of ASICS Arctics, the WR2 and WR4. They are the best ice running shoe for Maine winters, much better than wearing something over regular running shoes. BUT! ASICS just told me that they don’t have replacement spikes because these are discontinued shoes. And I can’t find the same spikes anywhere online. So, don’t buy them unless you plan to use them for a winter or two and then discard because you can’t get replacement spikes,
