14 pairs of winter-worthy sneakers

12

Almost all of the following are lined in shearling or fleece for maximum coziness, and a lot of them are water-resistant too. I’m especially enamored of these Vans, which have such a cool color combination. However if you’d prefer the same thing but in black, you can find it here.

This cool green sneaker is by a new (to me) brand from the Netherlands called Blackstone, and I love how old-school it looks.

These are kind of a snow boot/sneaker hybrid, and I dig the platform sole.

Another Blackstone option in streamlined black.

I don’t like white sneakers—they’re always so white—but I very much approve of this oatmeal-hued pair.

I purchased this pair of Uggs high tops last year, and have gotten so much wear out of them: they’re cozy, they add a nice amount of height, and—perhaps best of all—they’re currently marked down.

 

The leopard print details on this Adidas pair are awfully fun.

I’m hugely tempted by these, because of the big platform of course, but also because they’re pretty funky (in a good way).

These slip ons would be perfect for early morning dog walks.

I usually find footwear from Merell to be on the frumpy side, but I love how space-age these sneakers look.

Converse All Stars you could totally wear in a snowstorm—genius.

These are from Dr. Scholl’s, so I’m guessing they’re crazy comfortable.

Here’s another good pair for trekking in the snow.

 

These Allbirds were specially designed to be worn in the rain, which is handy.

    I own those Vans and they’ve been great in our snowy, cold outdoor-seating NYC winter!

    Huge fan of those Allbirds. Comfy, warm, not at all clunky . . . and not quite as dorky looking as some of the other styles. They have gotten me through the past few months of MN winter, and that is SAYING something.

    These are great, and exactly what this winter is calling for – warm lightweight shoes I can go for some long walks in. Thanks!

    I own those platforms! I bought them a few months ago and love them. I wear them way more often than expected, and they’re way more comfortable than expected. Highly recommend!

    I’m still searching, so I really appreciate these recommendations, Kim! I have so damned many foot issues, tho, that it makes it difficult to settle on a pair. And is anyone else as sick of the “order/return….order/return” game as I am?

      Definitely tired of that game! Paying to try something on.

    When I ship stuff to my daughter in NYC we now have it held at the UPS or FEDEX store to avoid package theft. Is that an option for you?

    Last week we were shivering in the teens. Today the high is supposed to reach 79. Still, I am quite tempted by the Blackstones and by the slip-ons. I need to gear up for next winter, right?

      I must profess my ignorance regarding the weather in Texas – I thought it impossible you’d ever be shivering!
