Still need a running shoe..if running is going to be a part of anything that you will be doing you are better with the running shoe.
I started running with a running shoe that had all kinds of this and that..thought I had bought the best...my feet would hurt, my knees...I finally went to a running store and was fitted for shoes..found out I was in a size too small ( my runners are a size and a half larger than my every day shoes) and that I had support where my foot did not require it. The next day I thought I was running on a cloud...the difference the "right" running shoe made was AMAZING...I am adamant about people wearing the right shoe to run.
I run/walk and wear my runners, especially if you are trying to do higher run ratios to walking...good luck to you!!!

What if you run/walk intervals? Is a running shoe best? Or another type of shoe?

You should only wear running shoes for running. There is a flexibility in runners that are not in cross-trainers. You should be fitted for running shoes as it is the most important thing you can wear while running. With snow being an issue right now trail runners would probably be a good idea as they have a grip to the soles, but if you don't want to invest in those then get road running shoes when the snow goes away, go ahead and buy road shoes.
Switching shoes is not a bad thing..I run with 2 different kinds of shoes, both running shoes but 2 different styles..it gives both the shoe and my feet a rest and a little bit of a change...even if I have 2 pair of the exact same running shoe I change them out on my runs.
Good Luck to you..and if you have a running store nearby stop in and have your feet checked out. Most of them employ only experienced runners and everyone's feet require different type shoes.

I've read that switching which shoes you wear when your training can actually cause injury. I've also read that you shouldn't wear cross trainers while running.

Are there any runners out there with experience in these areas?

I want to start trying to run outdoors (I've been using the treadmill) but it's winter and my nice light ClimaCool Chill runners would freeze my feet outside -I assume anyway- in the -12 to -30 degrees Celsius temps we have right now. I was thinking about lacing up my cross trainers instead, they would be warmer and would probably give me more stability over uneven snow. But because I read switching shoes could be bad and that cross trainers are bad for running in general I'm a bit hesitant to try.

What do you suggest?
