The Best Winter Trainers

Written by Dan | 24/10/2022



Have you thought about winter trainers yet? As the weather gets colder, your trusty old sneakers just won’t cut it anymore. You need winter shoes with a little more heft to keep your feet warm and dry. But with all the different types of trainers out there, it can be hard to know which ones are right for you.

That’s why we’ve put together this handy guide to the best trainers for colder weather so you can make sure your feet are always current—and comfortable in the winter months.

Smart Trainers

Whether you’re headed to the office or out on the town, sleek smart trainers from your favourite brand are a great option for colder weather. They’re usually made of leather or suede, which means they’re durable enough to withstand the elements while still looking sharp.

Plus, they tend to have thicker soles than your average sneaker, so they can provide extra insulation against the cold. And if you choose a pair with a waterproof coating, you’ll never have to worry about wet feet again.

Smart trainers don’t all have to be black; other colour options are just as appropriate to wear for work or other smart-casual events. Any dark colours such as brown, navy or even burgundy will work depending on the outfit, especially in winter. They don’t come much smarter than these EA7 leather sneakers:

Canvas Trainers

For a more casual look, try a pair of canvas trainers. They’re perfect for running errands or taking the dog for a walk, and they come in a variety of colours and styles to suit any outfit.

Just make sure to choose a pair with a thicker sole so you can stay warm and dry when the weather takes a turn for the worse. And if you’re really looking to make a statement with your winter wear, go for a pair with fun prints. We love these classic chunky Ralph Lauren canvas numbers.

Running Trainers

If you’re looking for a trainer that can go the distance, look no further than running trainers. They’re specifically designed for a workout or for running, so they’re extremely lightweight and comfortable and offer unrivalled traction.

The beauty of running shoes is that they often take advantage of the latest technology to provide maximum support and cushioning. And since they’re usually made of breathable mesh or synthetic materials, they’ll help keep your feet cool and dry in warmer summer weather.

Whichever your favourite footwear brand is, you’ll find runners that will bridge the gap between fashion and function. We can’t get enough of these lightweight adidas Ultraboost 5.0s. They’re a cosy fit and will protect your feet from the cold without weighing you down.

Everyday Trainers

If you’re looking for something to complement your casual wardrobe, everyday trainers are a great option. They come in a variety of styles and colours, so you’re sure to find a pair that fits your aesthetic.

And because they’re usually made from synthetic materials like nylon or mesh, they’re lightweight and durable – perfect for when you need to walk long distances in cold weather. Plus, many brands offer waterproof versions of their everyday trainers, so your feet will always stay dry in bad weather. We’re big fans of these understated Nike Air Max Dawns in grey. The perfect winter sneakers that go with literally everything!

White Trainers

White trainers are having a moment right now, so if you want to stay on trend this winter then opt for a pair of these bad boys. They come in both smart and casual styles, so you can choose whichever one best fits your needs.

Perfect for when you need to walk long distances in cold weather without sacrificing style. Style white sneakers with smart jeans or even a suit for a modern twist on a classic look.

Although throughout the winter, trainers can get dirty easily, they can be easily cleaned, especially if you go for a leather material as opposed to suede, canvas or other fabrics. Your trusty white trainers will go with any outfit whether it’s for day-to-day wear or a lads’ night out. You can’t go wrong with crisp white Lacoste Powercourts.
