With winter looming ominously in the distance, the giants of athletic footwear gear up for impending poor weather by issuing a torrent of weather-appropriate sneaker/boot hybrid models. A classic running staple and subject to more than a few exorbitantly priced luxury fashion knock-offs (we see you, Louis V, Valentino and ETQ Amsterdam), Nike's Internationalist sneaker has been given the sneakerboot treatment with four mid-top colorways sporting reflective uppers. While the mid-top silhouette is not exactly a fitting tribute to the sneaker's thoroughbred running credentials, these will no doubt do you right in less than ideal weather thanks to their tough-looking uppers and reflective properties. The pack drops October 25 at Nike.com.
In the meantime, whet your sneakerboot appetite by checking out more of the brand's Fall/Winter 2014 sneakerboots.
