Keep your feet warm and your style intact in the Cole Haan Air Winter Vail Boots ($200). These stealth black boots feature waterproof leather uppers, full natural shearling lining for warmth, a rugged tire-inspired outsole for excellent footing, and Nike Air units in the heel and forefoot for comfort. Great for hitting the snow-covered streets, heading to the blisteringly-cold stadium, or just scraping the snow-covered driveway.
Not to remind the Clevelanders in the crowd, but King James has a new team, and the Nike Lebron 8 ($TBA) sports a sexy red, black, and white color scheme because of it. Based around a basketball-specific Max Air 360 unit, the Lebron 8 features an all-natural leather upper, dual-density molded collar foam and a structural TPU injected frame with Flywire technology to lock the player's foot down in all the right places, an integrated mesh innersleeve for added breathability, deep forefoot grooves for added range of motion, and all the little details that separate Nike's player-specific shoes from their average sneakers.
Keds just got a little more cred thanks to a collaboration with Mr. McNairy. These Pro Keds by Mark McNairy Royal CVO Sneakers ($100) sport a suede upper, gum rubber midsole, leather laces, gold-brushed grommets, and one free pass to roll up your jeans before the fad dies a quiet death this winter. Also available in green and navy suede.
