Nike Air Force 1 Low “Black”
First introduced to the market in 1982, the Nike Air Force 1 is arguably one of the most classic sneakers of all time. Crafted from full-length leather, a blackened AF1 is a popular choice for many throughout the winter months due to the washable nature of the pair. If you’re looking for an affordable and safe pair to get you through the colder months, you can rarely go wrong with these bad boys!

Now a regular sight in the sneaker world, GORE-TEX fabrics offer full wind and water resistance, meaning you don’t have to worry about the weather before you go. New Balance recently decorated their popular 57/40 in fabric and also gave it a stealth triple black colourway, what a pair!
Yeezy DSRT Boot
Often the first to jump on trends, Kanye West pioneered the workwear revival in 2019 when the rapper launched the Yeezy DSRT Boot as part of his ongoing collaboration project with adidas Originals. Although it debuted in just three colorways “Oil” and “Rock” and “Salt” it has since been released in other variations and is also the perfect winter drummer if you prefer a high-rise silhouette. boot shape.
With the hype still in full swing, we couldn’t come up with this list without including a pair of sneakers from none other than Salomon. Originally developed for trail running purposes, the Salomon XT-6 has recently reached new levels of popularity due to its sleek appearance, durability and comfort. Designed to be weatherproof and able to grip any terrain, these babies will take on city streets with absolute ease all winter long, a solid option!
Nike ACG Air Mowabb
Nike’s coveted ACG (All Conditions Gear) line has recently made a huge resurgence, so it’s no surprise that some of the legendary shoe offerings over the years have also been remade for today’s market. The Nike ACG Air Mowabb was designed by Tinker Hatfield and took inspiration from the Nike Air Huarache, beefing it up in a more wintery, trail-ready silhouette. If you are looking for a versatile pair of bats that will work with almost anything, these are the winter sneakers for you.
Nike Air Max 90 Sneakerboot
While we haven’t seen this silhouette for a few years, OG sneakerheads will likely remember the Nike Air Max 90 Sneakerboot with fond memories. Essentially an AM90 turned into a boot, what exactly is not to like? There have been plenty of interesting colourways released over the years including ‘Flax’ (pictured) so if you love your Air Max these are the only winter sneakers you need! We pray that Nike brings this one back.
Converse Chuck 70 GORE-TEX
There aren’t many silhouettes as iconic and timeless as the Converse Chuck 70, so when it was finally dressed in GORE-TEX it was a must-have cop for many of us here at TSS HQ. All the look and heritage of the original model but totally winterized, what’s not to love ?! If you’re struggling with what makes you vibrate on a rainy day, protect them and you’ll never have to worry again.
Yeezy NSLTD Boot
While not officially released yet, we couldn’t leave the upcoming Yeezy NSLTD Boot out of this list, just because it looks like something you might find worn by a bounty hunter in a wilderness post. -apocalyptic. Nonetheless, these insulated boots (yes, that’s what NSLTD stands for) will undoubtedly be perfect for those freezing winter days! While they might not be too easy to obtain when they finally release, we believe if anyone gets a chance to grab them, they’re sorted for the next few winters.
Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Shadow”
An outsider to some of the more technical sneakers on this list, here at The Sole Supplier, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Shadow” is a favorite when it comes to winter beaters. The classic 1985 colourway shows off all of the legendary design that made up Michael Jordan’s first signature Nike sneaker, while the black and gray leather panels mean they are particularly rain resistant and can be cleaned an absolute treat if they get dirty, what more do you want?
Nike Air Force 1 GORE-TEX
Finally, but by no means another GORE-TEX sneaker, but this time it’s none other than the Nike Air Force 1 Low GORE-TEX. If you love sneakers, we already have an idea that you might be in AF1, so why not dress up your favorite summer shoes with weather-resistant fabrics? Nike was obviously listening to whoever voiced this idea first, as it’s now a production model that sees an annual release.
