Week of requests: cool sneakers, winter edition

6

Frequent (and beloved) commenter C.W. wrote in with this request, and I decided for focus on sneakers that seem like they’d be good in colder weather, like this one from Vans that almost looks like a Chelsea boot.

People love their Allbirds, which are made of wool and are supremely walkable; this version comes in a multitude of good hues.

Here’s one from Sorel with serious treads that’d be perfect for trudging through the snow.

I always feel like high-tops like these from Adidas are better when it’s cold out because your ankles stay warm, and I also like how understated they are.

These Vans are water-resistant, which is awfully handy, and I like the little pull-tabs too.

I own enough fleece-lined sneakers, but am seriously jonesing for these; they just look so cozy, and come off almost like they’re boots.

This fleece-lined pair is from Toms, and has a nice platform-ish sole for added height.

These pink Tretorns are so cute, and I’ll bet they’re desperately comfortable; here is a black high-top version I also like.

You can’t get much more classic than Chuck Taylors, and these are fleece-lined too. Here’s a clunkier Chuck that’d work in the snow.

This sneaker/boot hybrid is nicely tomboyish.

 

I really like these Uggs; they have a major platform sole, and because they’re Uggs, will be deeply warm.

And finally: this Missoni/Adidas number isn’t especially wintry at all, but it’s so damn good I had to include it.

    You continue on your winning streak, Kim! Thank you so much for this post! Love ALL these. Have already ordered the Sorrels and am heartbroken the pink Tretorns are sold out in my size! Also wanted those Adidas––soooooo cheerful!––but not available in my size (sigh). Giving the Dolce Vita deep consideration…!

    I’m toying with some Sorel sneakers called Kinetic. They have the same sole as the one you feature but have a big strap that you can tighten across the instep.

    I was trying on winter sneakers and almost bought them this past weekend, then I looked at the white soles and trim. I don’t think they would stay white with all the slush I am unfortunately expecting this winter. Does anyone know of any with black or brown rubber soles.
