With winter looming, sneakerheads are shivering at the thought of shelving their summer kicks. For Vans lovers, the prospect can be quite grim. While the California-bred skater sneaker can handle the hot pavement, it’s less likely to endure the incoming winter.

Well, at least until now.

Vans winterized soles are just one of the brand’s latest efforts to ready its sneaker arsenal for the chillier months so its fans can sport the brand during the off season. After all, not everyone can live in Southern Cali. But with winter-ready pairs dropping, geographical location is no obstacle. Whether it’s fleece-lined high-tops, GORE-TEX fabric treatments or durable water-resistant soles, these winter-friendly kicks can keep you looking stylish minus the frostbite.

As part of the growing trend for footwear brands to winterize their kicks, this collection hits all the right notes. So if you want to keep wearing Vans during the winter, these are some of your best options.
