7 Great Sneaker Boots To Ride Out Winter: Nike

Nike

Winter hands out days where nothing other than a massive calf-high boot covered in rubber and fleece lining will suffice. Hopefully, you don’t experience too many of those. What are far more common, though, are the days when a little snow has fallen or you need to trudge through some puddles. You don’t want to look like Nanook of the North, but you need something to protect you from the elements. That’s where sneaker boots come into play. Blending the comfort of sneakers with the protection of boots, they are the best of both worlds. Since there is still plenty more winter left, here are seven sneaker boots to help you through it.
