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.
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.
