Its that Sneakerboot Time of the Year
Sneakerboots are the perfect match between sneaker and boot that offer the athletic comforts and benefits of an athletic shoe and the durability and winter weather protection to protect your feet from the elements. Sneakerboots also provide a more traction oriented sole which helps with winter weather traction. This is always a plus while trying to maintain foot balance and grip in slippery winter conditions. The weather is starting to cool down, which is a perfect time for us to make a list of available sneaker boots from Cole Haan, New Balance and Nike to discuss their versions of sneakerboots which mesh style and function perfectly. The available models are:
The Nike AirMax 90 Sneakerboot features seamless, no sew construction. In addition to the full length polyurethane midsole with the Nike Vis-Air® unit for comfort and cushioning is a rubber outsole with an aggressive tread pattern for increased winter traction. Available in black or green/red.
