So far, this season’s been mild in most areas of the country. But winter is coming, and with it all of the weather that makes it difficult to rock sneakers, e.g. sleet, snow, and other assorted sludge. Rather than retire your favorite footwear from now until spring, however, those of you facing heavy combat with the elements over the next couple of months may want to consider investing in winterized sneakers.

Whether waterproofed, equipped with heat-retention features, outfitted with soles that can provide extra traction, or designed with some combination of all three, these sneakers are built specifically to take you from point A to B without sacrificing form for function. Even sneaker brands known for their no-weather SoCal vibes—think: Converse—are starting to outfit their shoes for use beyond the skate parks of summer.

Keep reading for 6 ways to winterize your sneaker collection this season.

Converse All Star Chuck Taylor Nubuck High Top, $120

If you’d prefer for your winter shoes to masquerade as something you’d wear on warmer days, this could be the perfect pair for you. They look like any other Chuck but are waterproof.

New Balance Waterproof Sneaker Boot, $110

This sneaker-boot hybrid features 200 grams of insulation to keep your foot warm on the coldest of days. It’s also made from waterproof materials, both inside and out. Plus, that fuzzy trim around the top gives it an extra layer of cozy hygge-fied comfort on the go.

If you’re more focused on feeling festive right now, shop these glittery sneakers instead. Pair them with sparkly leggings for a double dose of disco, because ’tis the season to shine.
