    Nike LunarTerra Arktos

    “The Arktos is one of the most comfortable boots out there; the inner removable bootie that you can wear when entering from the elements is awesome. I’ve been wearing mine for two winters and never had a wet foot yet!”

    Timberland Tackhead

    “The tackhead is my favorite fashion functional shoe; it is waterproof and has a very utility look with the contrasting materials. Total opposite of the Arktos weight-wise but on a night out in winter, you’ll be bone dry.”

    Duck Boots

    “Preferably the ‘Avenue’ Duck boots by Sperry. When people think of Sperry they immediately think of boat shoes and preppy frat bros. But they’ve switched things up a lot, and actually have a dope selection of boots. The Avenue boot is fleece-lined and has a rubber on most of the upper. During slush season, they are the best.”

    Air Jordan IX “Olive”

    “I break these out when it’s not snowing. It’s the perfect winter colorway. And IXs are super bulky so they almost look like a boot. That colorway is my favorite out of all the XIs. Black jacket, black jeans, black beanie, and Olive IXs…that’s the uniform.”

    Air Jordan I OG High (any color)

    “Jordan 1s are tough to wear in the summer with shorts, so I wear them all fall/winter. They’re the best-looking shoe with a pair of jeans in my opinion. The all-leather upper makes them easy to clean if they get dirty. If they’re easy to clean then there’s no reason not to wear them. A lot of people only wear boots in the winter. If it’s not snowing and it’s not super cold, no reason not to break out some 1s!

    Timberland boots

    “Timbs in the winter are a no-brainer. I have five pairs, all different colors, just ready to go. I’ll wear these the most for sure. The all black pair is a must, but it’s nice to see other solid colorways pop up. I’ve got the all reds, I’m excited to break those out. The navy pair is next on the list. Everyone living in the north east has a pair of Timbs in the closet.

    PUMA Suedes

    “Not what you were expecting, right? People mostly rock boots in the winter for obvious reason, but most boots are uncomfortable when you need to walk a long distance. So when I’m in Boston walking around the city, Timbs aren’t exactly ideal. So every winter I throw a couple pairs of Suedes in the rotation. I suede protect them, but for the most part they still take a beating. I just chalk it up to the game. They’re super affordable, so if I ruin a pair or two over the winter, it’s worth it. They look dope with topcoats and most of my other outerwear so I gotta rock ’em. I just throw on a pair of wool socks and I’m good!”

    “When It comes to cold weather sneakers/kicks, I normally wear a lot of runners and a few Jordans that I like. Now that I’m a resident in the NJ/NYC area, I will be investing in a pair of Timbs (Timberland boots) because of the snow and ice. I try to stay away from my suede shoes because I don’t want the ice or water to damage them, especially if I don’t have them sprayed with water proof protection.

    “The runners that I like to wear during the cold weather months are Nike Air Max 95s, Nike Air Max Plus, and New Balance. This year I will be adding the adidas Ultra Boost in the rotation. Being that it’s cold, I typically wear a lot of joggers/sweatpants daily so thats why I wear runners. Runners are clean, comfortable, and easy, and you can dress them up or down.

    “The Jordans that I like to wear during the cold weather months are the Jordan Is, IIIs, IVs, and XIs. I don’t have a particular colorway that I stick to but I stick with these models because most of the materials on these shoes can stand pretty much any type of environment. I catch myself wearing my Royal Is, Black Cement IIIs, and Bred XIs a lot when it’s cold because if they get wet or get snow on them, I don’t have to worry about my shoes getting ruined.”

    “Luckily, Tims never seem to go out of style. I keep my boots very simple: wheat, black leather and grey.”

    Foamposites

    “Foams have always been my go-to winter sneaker. They’re incredibly durable and always keep my feet dry in the snow.

    “I also picked up a pair of Eggplant Air Max Foamdromes (Foamposite boots) a few months ago and I’m very eager to break them out this winter.  I’ll still mix in some Jordans when the weather cooperates.”

    “Living in Atlanta, the temperature rarely drops below freezing during the winter, and snow only shows up once every few years. Thankfully, I get to avoid the harsher conditions that trouble those to the north, but it’s still too cold to pull out my usual runners and Flyknits that dominate my summer wardrobe. Here’s what I’ll be wearing most this winter:

    Common Projects Achilles Low – White

    The Common Projects Achilles Low has become a year-round staple in my wardrobe. With a thick leather upper that can handle most forms of bad weather while remaining easy to clean, the Common Projects Achilles is ideal for any function, informal or formal, indoors or outdoors.

    Air Jordan I Retro High OG – “Shadow”

    Since their release in 2013, the Shadow Jordan I has been my go-to Jordan I. The smooth leather upper and durable rubber sole have put up with plenty of wear over the last two years, and aside from the inevitable creasing, they still look relatively new. If rain is in the forecast, I’ll probably be wearing my pair of Shadows.

    Nike Kobe IX Elite – “Masterpiece”

    Deemed casually unwearable by many, the Kobe IX Elite serves as my alternative to the traditional boot. Instead of a pair of Timbs, I’ll pull out a Kobe IX, keeping it light and comfortable in comparison to heavy and stiff traditional boots. The thicker Flyknit used on the upper provides more protection from the winter elements, while my usual Flyknit runners and Magistas stay stowed in their boxes for the cold and wet days.”

    FOLLOW

    “Living in Tennessee, we typically don’t get hit with the snow-filled winters of the north, so wearing heavy stuff like Timbs would be more of a style choice than a necessity. At worst, we’re dealing with rain and the like, which means you don’t want to wear your Jordans or your Boosts either because they’ll end up looking beat. I keep it simple by wearing joints from previous years, namely Nike‘s Lava Dome 2.4 and the ACG Lunar Macleay. The former has a typical boot sole with a mix of suede and canvas on the uppers while the latter sports a sleeker profile, 3/4 cut, Vac Tech upper and Lunarlon sole. What they both have in common are all-day comfort and they look better with each wear. Scuffs and such give them character.

    “I’ve avoided most of the sneakerboot hybrids but I decided to give the all-black Air Trainer SC sneakerboot a go for this fall/winter just to see how they stand up. They’re a model I’m partial to and it looks like the normal Trainer SC, but with materials that can survive the elements. We’ll see how it goes after a few rainy day wears.”

    “When I used to live in Pittsburgh, where I grew up, I always kept a fresh pair of butterscotch Timbs for the winter. That snow salt would mess any sneakers up so quick so I had to have boots! I also have always messed with my UGG slippers heavy. Warm and comfort! That’s what it’s all about in rough winter weather!

    “Nowadays in Florida, I wear black kicks in bad weather. The Space Jams and the Black Cement IIIs are my rain classics. The Solar Yeezy 2 I’ll still wear in bad weather when stunting. That shoe lasts, except the wrinkles which happen regardless of weather!

    “My favorite shoe to wear lately in rain, dirt, or anything though is the black Yeezy Boost 350. The fact it’s so comfortable, and on top of that it can’t get dirty because it’s all black. The boost has become my daily, even though I don’t have a single other pair of adidas in my closet, and trust when I say I am not a Kanye fan. Just a good shoe all around! I doubt it would be great in the snow though ‘cuz it’s very thin.”

My sneaker rotation changes based on the weather, meaning if it’s just cold and there’s little or no snow build up I’ll take my sneakers #StraightToTheFootGame, ALL OF THEM. I believe in wearing my kicks, let’s be real though. I won’t rock my kicks in deep snow or blizzard-type situations. I’ll turn to my Jordan boot game which a lot of people know little or nothing about besides the Spiz’ikes or the 6 Rings winterized boots.”

    Timberland Premium Waterproof Boots

    “Everyone’s favorite classic boot. Not just fashionable in streetwear, but also extremely practical for just about any type of weather (rain, sleet or snow). Now available in so many colorways, we all can incorporate a pair or two (or three) into our winter wardrobe.”

    Nike Air Force 1 High

    “Probably the most iconic sneakers ever. Air Force 1 Highs also serve as a solid silhouette for colder weather and are good for keeping your feet cozy. For intense weather, they come in a duck boot waterproof style. For rocking in the streets, OGs and fashion forward individuals alike can find comfort in AF1 High colorways. Some of the most recent hyped collabs were with Riccardo Tisci and Supreme (both in 2014). Coming up this year mid-November will be the ‘wheat’ colorway, which adopts Timberland aesthetics to go well with all your fall/winter fits.”

    Air Jordan I (Retro) High

    “Definitely a staple in any sneakerhead’s collection, 1s are a classic sneaker that withstood the test of time through the decades with multiple OG colorway retro releases. Everlasting not just in a fashion sense, but in durability as well, the high tops and leather will get you through the chill. My faves for winter (and just about every other season) are “Bred” (Black/Red) and “Chicago” (White/Black-Varsity Red). The dark color blocking is suited for contrasting against a bright white winter background, while embracing the colors of Christmas with a pop of contrasting red.”

    adidas Yeezy 950 Boot

    “Of course these made the list…Hypebeasts praise the Yeezy name, so already it may be slightly difficult to get your hands on a pair. But quite honestly, this shoe was made for winter, and Yeezy Season 1 released at a perfect time. The combat boot-esque 950 can be described as fashion meets functional. Great to add to your rotation if you can swallow the hefty price tag as this is the most expensive Yeezy collab to date.”

    “For the random rainy day here in the Bay Area I only have one go-to sneaker, and that’s the Air Jordan III in Black/ Cement. Like Chucks, the kicks just look better when they’re beat. It also doesn’t hurt that they’re built like tanks so there won’t be any water leaking into the leather upper. Sure, the midsole paint cracks…but who really cares about that type of stuff? You know Jordan Brand will re-release them way before you ever get to that second pair you have stashed in the closet. Just because the weather is bad, that doesn’t mean my kicks have to be.”

    Nike Air Force 1 Duckboot

    “Not only was this shoe made for harsh conditions, it also, in rare cases, came with a Certificate of Authenticity and it’s own waterproof label.”

    Nike Air Dunk High OMS

    “Between the leather upper and the Free-inspired outsole, water resistant upper construction makes it supportive on all angles. You could literally compare this to the Flyknit Chukka FSB (just w/o the Flyknit). Very overlooked, underrated model (also could be easily found at outlets on occasions). Comfort and looked good during rain, snow, or just regular cold weather walks (or outdoor paintball).”

    Nike Trainerendor X Stussy

    “A beautiful collab between Stussy and Nike, this ACG (all-conditioned gear) allows me to feel lightweight but look stylish at the same time (including the normal black/white pair), and that Yeezy-like strap with takes from innovation between skateboarding and snowboarding engineered in-between styles, The shoe has great containment, lightweight, and is simple in style (with a stylish reflective 3M heel counter) no matter the conditions.”

    Nike Free Shield Huarache “NYC” Giants

    “Comfort, lockdown, and no better way to represent a hometown team than with these. Either outdoor runs in tethered conditions or indoor training/gym workouts, this shoe added style, contrast, and performance to any materialized type of activity on any given time of day.”

    Timberland boots

    “You can’t go without winter with at least having a pair of Timbs in the rotation. Constructed of 100 percent recycled PET (Polyethlene terephthalate–it’s a plastic resin and the most common type of polyester–100 percent organic striped cotton linings, organic cotton uppers, and Green Rubber lug outsoles, also stay the distance with extremely durable Taslan laces and rustproof hardware. Nothing like supporting a good cause but at the same time being able to strain any condition with a iconic footwear for daily workers, style icons, or even recording artists, regardless of the conditions, it’s a shoe that can be rocked at any moment.”

    Timberland 6 inch boot: 

    “It’s tough to beat the classic Timberland 6 inch boot. I wear mine almost year round as they’re a classic wardrobe staple, but being Canadian, they get the most use in the fall and winter. Right now, I have the black and ‘sweet potato’ styles from the Villa collaboration in rotation. Both colorways are neutral so they go with just about anything in my winter wardrobe but the different colors makes them more unique.”

    Air Jordan III in black cement: 

    “I always joke that my AJ3s are my rain boots. Since I wear a GS size, the material on them lasts forever and I think the AJ3 looks better the more they’re beat up and worn. They pair perfectly with a jogger pant like the Nike Tech Fleece pant, which is great for a casual day running errands.”

    Nike Stasis ACG:

    “I’ve always been a sucker for the ACG line, however being a small size it’s almost always been out of reach. I’m generally not a fan of sneakerboots as I’d rather stick to my Timbs or a Chelsea boot. Of all the sneakerboots in my size range, I’d like to try out the Nike Stasis ACG boot. They have the classic wheat color, they’re an ACG style, and thanks to the high-top silhouette it would keep snow and rain out and keep my feet warm.”

    “I’ve never been too heavy on boots during any season. I think that shoes like Jordan 1s and Air Force 1 Highs are shoes that are the most fashionable and go with virtually every outfit, no matter the season. Both of these models have been released in boot form, so I guess that is a plus. Also, I am from an area right outside of Washington, D.C., and when the weather gets ugly, Foamposites are always one of our ‘go to’ shoes. Foamposites are probably the most durable and most indestructible shoes ever made. (Laughs) If you can mess up a pair of Foams, you’re truly reckless.

    “I guess it doesn’t hurt to throw on a pair of Timbs every now and then, though. If I had to rock a pair of them, it would either be the ‘Buttas’ or the black suede pair. One boot that is becoming pretty popular in the area where I live is the Nike Air Superdome ACG boots. About 5-6 years back the Goadome Nike boots were popular; Wale even made a song about them. (Laughs) But it is rare that you see anyone other than police officers wearing those in my city.”

    Nike Air Force 1 High

    “When the weather gets bad in NYC I don’t recommend a sneaker but if you must let it be an AF1 High. The absence of mesh makes it slush friendly but by no means waterproof. This is a direct ‘from the car to the venue’ wear. If you really wanna make it work, go a step further and get the AF1 ‘DuckBoot.’ Then you can walk those cold, slushy, uncleared streets in confidence.”

Throw on ya North Face and be out! I also love Under Armour’s SpeedForm XC Trail Boots. This shoe was created for the tough mudder races and has materials that repel water.

Depending on your place of residence, this point in the calendar causes trepidation. Sneaker lovers know all about retiring shoes for the winter, especially those that live in climates where snow and rain are notoriously difficult. Your wardrobe will change, obviously, but so will what you wear on your feet. Lighter colors might get replaced with darker tones. Suede might not see the light of day. And low-tops might keep collecting closet dust. It’s not really a choice. It’s a necessity.

Still, even Mother Nature at its worst won’t stop some from staying fresh. With the holiday season just around the corner, we got up with some of the game’s most influential shoeheads to see what they are currently gearing up to wear the rest of this year, everyone from Florida DJs weaving through rain storms to young guns in snow-ravaged Boston to some of New York City’s finest streetwear enthusiasts. Nearly every major brand had some representation, but in the end a few longtime classics stood out above the rest. If you’re planning on staying fresh this winter, you’ll need the Air Jordan I, the Nike Air Force 1, and the classic Timberland 6-inch boot.

Everyone has their go-to shoes and boots during the bad weather months, even some of the game’s most important sneakerheads. We asked them all for a look inside their current “winter” sneaker rotations. Here are 21 of the Game’s Biggest Sneakerheads on Their Favorite Bad Weather Kicks. The flyest bring the heat all year long.
