Isn’t it fun experimenting with new footwear throughout summer? Whether they feature immaculate white suede uppers or breathable holes to the toe box, everything goes when the sun’s shining. That all changes very quickly in fall and winter, though. There’s no more time for carefree experimentation, now you need a pair of all-terrain sneakers that you can trust.
Luckily, the world of technical hiking sneakers has become a focal point for sneakerheads the world over. That means that your favorite sneaker brand has probably developed an all-terrain sneaker or five over the past two years.
With the help of Browns, we've rounded up eight SUVs for your feet. Our selection reaches from Balenciaga and Rick Owens (yes, luxury does all-terrain sneakers, too) to Salomon and New Balance. Underpinning each of the selections is the fact that form and function are paid equal attention.
Shop the best all-terrain sneakers for fall and winter below.
adidas Prada Luna Rossa Sneakers
One of the prerequisites for sneakers for fall is that they can stand up to rain. The adidas x Prada Luna Rossa was designed for the Luna Rossa sailing team and even features drainage holes to the outsole. Hopefully, they aren't called into use, but better safe than sorry.
ASICS x Angelo Baque Gel-Kayano 14 Sneakers
Leaving his post as Brand Director at Supreme, Angelo Baque opened a new chapter with his agency Awake NY. That's a very, very strong resumé that is cemented by this pair of color-blocked ASICS Gel-Kayano 14s. With a rugged sole unit to contrast the bright uppers, this pair caters to every side of the spectrum.
New Balance Fresh Foam Hierro V6 Sneakers
The New Balance Fresh Foam Hierro's mesh uppers are woven with TPU threads to reinforce high-wear areas. What looks like a lightweight runner is actually built to go the extra mile with laser perforations, toe-protection technology, and a hard-wearing Vibram outsole to boot.
Balenciaga Track Hike High Top Sneakers
You've no doubt marveled over the chunky goodness of the Balenciaga Track Sneaker before, but the new Track Hike iteration takes things up a notch. Built with a high-top collar and fitted with loop lacing to the top half, this pair's a head-turner.
Y-3 Notoma High Top Sneakers
Headed up by Yohji Yamamoto, adidas Y-3 was one of the very first forays into luxury sneakers. One of our favorite offerings of the season comes courtesy of the partnership in the form of the Notoma High. The bold green & white palette is a stylish departure from the utilitarian DNA of the silhouette.
Salomon Odyssey 1 Advanced Sneakers
Few footwear names have had a glow-up like Salomon. In the last couple of years, the French label has become a go-to for hikers and fashion-week revelers alike, and that's quite an achievement.
A-COLD-WALL* Dirt Slip-On Sneakers
Samuel Ross' design language is industrial and utilitarian, so of course his A-COLD-WALL* imprint is part of our all-terrain sneakers roundup. The Dirt Slip-On Sneakers come this season in a white & maroon pairing which gives the technical silhouette a more stylish spin.
Rick Owens Runner Sneakers
Hear us out. Rick Owens probably didn't design his futuristic Runner Sneakers for anything other than city flexing, but the chunky ridged sole unit and pure leather uppers make this pair a viable option to see you through the cruel weather.
