Top 5 Best Sneakers for Winter 16′

Winter’s coming, and and along with it comes the dread of having to hang up your sneakers for a while. Traditionally, winter footwear is large, clunky, and stiff but given that some the major sneaker brands have winterized shoes on the market, you can get a high level of comfort, style, and functionality all in one package.

To help you decide which model is the best fit for you, we have decided to put together a list of the top five best winter sneakers available this year. These bad boys will keep your shoe game strong even in the worst conditions mother nature can throw at you.

5. Adidas – ZX Flux ⅝ Trail Shoes


This shoe will keep you ready for action all throughout winter. A running style mid cut with a mesh upper and high insulation provides warmth and water resistance. These clean looking devils can be worn for a run or just for warmth out and about during the cold months.

4. Puma – Sky II High Duck Boots


The Sky II High Duck Boots are a reincarnation of Puma’s original high top basketball shoe from the 80s’ reengineered to be winter ready. The full-grain leather and rubber toe is sure to keep you dry and the premium insulation with round lace closure will keep you warm. 

3. Vans – Sk8-Hi MTE


These high top classics are built with equal parts substance and equal parts style. Modeled after the Vans classic high tops, insulated with a heat retention layer, and a premium Scotchgard-treated upper combine to deliver a robust sneaker ready for anything. There are also reinforced toecaps that to make them more durable and a vulcanized lug outsole that feels like a snow boot for maximum traction.

2. Nike – Lunar Force 1 Duckboot


Another non disappointing iteration of the legendary Air Force 1 design, the Lunar Force 1 Duckboot comes in at number two. The classic design made with water-repellent leather and high traction soles is complimented with a slight tactical feel making it one of the best all around winter sneakers this year.

1. Converse – Chuck II Waterproof Thermo Boot


The new Converse Chuck II Waterproof Thermo Boot comes in at number one on our list because it offers the most robust weatherproofing around while retaining the pure nature of the Chuck II. This boot will have you rocking the Chuck style no matter what mother nature throws your way. Blurring the line between winter boot and sneaker, this innovative take on the classic model offers a waterproof cushion with Nike Lunarlon midsole and an outer sole to keep your stride warm and dry. Be sure and scoop your pair online soon though because there has only been a limited number released.
