If you look down at our feet this fall, you'll spot sneakers, not fancy heels. Yep, our devotion to the rubber sole and all its comforts is at an all-time high, partly thanks to the not-for-the-gym, high-concept styles that recently graced collections from Chanel to Dior. Our only issue: The temps have taken a serious dip (and that first snow is bound to fall any day), so we'll soon have to shove our fancy trainers to the backs of our closets.
Luckily, we'll be able to replace them with warmer fancy trainers. Since sneakers are reigning right now, designers have been retooling the silhouette with details that'll survive the impending cold — and, who knows, maybe even that upcoming polar vortex (c'mon, you know
it's on its way). Ahead, shop 30 styles featuring high-tops, shearling, elevated soles, and more. You're sure to find the perfect pair to match your parka. Sorry, wellies.
