10 Sneakers to Break Up Your Winter Boot Routine


Trainers aren’t just for working out in or pairing with cute dresses — and everything else — all summer long. If Fashion Week’s tennis-shoe-adorned street-style stars are any indication, it’s clear that they are a year-round option, except during really extreme weather. (And one Cut editor won’t give up hers in a blizzard.)

To mix up your winter-shoe rotation, we’ve rounded up 10 sneakers that are chic enough to incorporate into your daily routine, including a work-appropriate minimal sneaker for Céline fans and a sophisticated suede reboot of the classic all-white Chuck Taylor high-top. Some transition easily between the gym and the dailies, while others make a bold statement in oxblood leather, graphic purple, and color-blocked hues. If you live where it gets slippery, wear boots or shoes with grips and tread carefully — otherwise, go wild. They’re all under $300, so you can still save up on an equally comfy heavy-duty coat.
