It's been nearly two years since the start of the pandemic, and many of us are still working out outside. And while our favorite lightweight runners may have carried us through outdoor exercising in the warmer months, as the temperatures continue to drop, it's finally time to invest in a new kind of shoe—one that is better prepared to face the harshest of winter elements. To help, we've rounded up the warmest sneakers that will keep your feet toasty and protected as you work up a sweat.
When it comes to picking the perfect winter sneaker, there are a few key elements to keep in mind. The shoe should be durable, waterproof, slip-resistant, and padded or insulated against the chill. That said, in ticking those boxes, you shouldn't have to sacrifice the breathability, style, comfort, support, and lightweight feel that you so love in your year-round favorite pairs.
Fortunately, many brands, like Adidas for instance, have created winterized versions of their fan-favorite runners, while other brands opt for new styles that tout waterproof uppers, added insulation, and extra grippy tread that is made to secure your stride while running in the snow, rain, or sleet. Some shoes even get bonus points for having reflective elements for those low-visibility winter mornings and evenings during the shorter days. Scroll down to shop the warmest sneakers that we're going to be wearing all season long.
