7 Sneakers to Add to Your Fall Rotation

7 Sneakers to Add to Your Fall Rotation: via New Balance

via New Balance

As of last week, it is officially fall whether you like it or not. You’ve probably already noticed the preponderance of apple picking photos clogging your Instagram feed, which means the Halloween pics can’t be far behind. The change is also impacting wardrobe choices. Sure, there’s always the guy who pushes wearing shorts until it’s way too cold (ahem, Action Bronson), but for most people the heavier jeans and even sweaters are starting to come out of hibernation.

Fall is also a time to refresh your kicks. Just as the leaves change colors, so should your sneakers. The crispy white joints that served you so well during the summer should be phased out in favor of earth tones, navys, and blacks that will coordinate nicely with your other fall garments and not show too much wear and tear as the weather starts to turn.

To get you prepared, we found seven sneakers that definitely deserve a few spots in your rotation this season.

1. DANNER X NEW BALANCE 585 MIUSA
$365, newbalance.com
New Balance linked up with boot maker Danner to create a pair of sneakers that are ready to hit the trail and still look great on the streets. Made in the U.S., the collaborative 585 features leather from Chicago’s famed Horween tannery and durable ballistic nylon. The boot-style laces add the perfect finishing touch.

2. ADIDAS ORIGINALS GAZELLE
$80, adidas.com
Rather than flooding the zone with a bunch of different models, Adidas found success with its heritage sneakers by taking a single silhouette and interpreting it in a variety of new ways. Just look at what the three stipes did with the reintroduction of the Stan Smith. This is the year of the Gazelle and there couldn’t be a more worthy shoe. Everything about the classic indoor soccer shoe is in perfect proportion and this mustard yellow colorway is an ideal color for fall.

3. NIKE ACG LAVA DOME ULTRA
$109.99, footaction.com
Nike’s Lava Dome is a cult favorite for its minimal yet reliable design. Originally introduced in the 1980s, the low top hiking sneaker is being reissued this year with some updates that shave weight off a shoe that was admittedly a little heavy. But from a style perspective, all the original charm remains in tact right down to the classic Nike font on the heel tab.

4. ADIDAS ULTRA BOOST ATR
$175, endclothing.com
The Adidas Ultra Boost is without question a future classic. Twenty years from now, the brand could bring it back from the archives and it will still turn heads. But Adidas isn’t even done tinkering with the current iteration. The latest innovation is to make it an all-season, all-weather sneaker by adding a water-resistant layer around the toe to keep your feet dry in less-than-ideal conditions.

5. NIKE SB X 917 BLAZER LOW
$89.95, tactics.com
Preppy and skateboarding don’t normally go hand in hand. But a country club vibe runs through Nike SB’s collaboration with skater Alex Olson’s brand Call Me 917. Featuring a red, white, and blue striped ribbon on the tongue and heel, the sneakers have extremely clean lines that are accentuated by details like the perforated Swoosh and tonal branding.

6. AIR JORDAN 12 RETRO WOOL
$200, nike.com
Your shoes can be just as luxuriously soft and warm as your sweaters with the latest rendition of the classic Air Jordan 12, the model that MJ wore in the 1997 NBA Finals when he battled through the flu to score 38 points and help the Bulls pull out an important win. The upper on these Jordan 12s features a weather resistant wool that makes them look incredibly refined.

7. SAUCONY GRID 9000
$85.99, saucony.com
Somewhat under the radar, Saucony has been releasing some of the best retro running sneakers of late. Silhouettes like the Grid 9000 that was a standout shoe in the ‘90s for its comfort and style have been updated with fresh colorways that successfully navigate the tricky line between bold and obnoxious.
