With temperatures steadily decreasing, you should slowly be thinking about investing in weather-appropriate gear and essential layering pieces. With an abundance of jackets, hoodies, and other winter apparel available in stores, many forget about one of the most important elements of winter-proofing your outfit — your sneakers. And while canvas low-tops may go with every fit, your toes won’t be thanking you when temperatures go sub-zero.
In light of this, we’ve put together a selection of failsafe winter sneakers that are stylish to wear even when it’s not below freezing but also rugged enough to protect your feet in times of inclement weather.
Our picks cover a wide range of styles, ranging from sneaker-boot hybrids and ultra technical options to fashion collaborations you may not have thought suitable for the winter. GORE-TEX weather proofing, of course, plays a central role in the below offering, as do sci-fi variants such as Salomon’s XA-Alpine 2 ADV and Chemist Creations’ ASICS collaboration. So, without further ado, browse the rest of our picks below.
For the GORE-TEX obsessed:
For the non-traditionalist:
For the tech-heads:
For the OG lover:
