Highsnobiety / Asia Typek

Of course, there’s no denying a pair of black kicks in a winter rotation, but as the less brave among us go to extra lengths to protect our poor white staple sneakers from the canvas-wrecking conditions outside, new colorways are inevitably needed. Enter, the silver sneaker.

Ever since the iconic Nike Air Max 97 got its long-awaited re-release a few years back, metallic options have become increasingly present in collections far and wide. Not only are silver sneakers a regular in Nike, adidas, and ASICS outputs — fashion houses such as Maison Margiela are also on board.

Silver is a shade suited and booted for winter.  And don’t just take our word for it — it’s science — kind of. Metallic elements reflect light, and being reflective on those dark winter nights ultimately means being safer. In winter, we tend to dial down our fits, with more monochromatic pieces creeping into our looks. Silver sneakers pair up perfectly with such looks, serving as a glittering finish to an otherwise minimal look.

Scroll on for the silver sneakers we’re shopping this winter.
