With the cold season just around the corner the sneaker boots for men are back once more. The concept of sneaker boots was born when, in their effort to reach out to each niche in the footwear industry Nike created its first boots with the Nike Air Max Goadome over a decade ago. Ever since then they created other styles inspired from their classic sneaker designs with enhancements for cold weather conditions. Other brands followed shortly after, with Converse, Adidas and Vans coming up with their own classic inspired sneaker boots. Even the New Balance brought back their Rainier boots this year which we did not include on our list but we may as well did. The idea was to make the existing styles these brands have winter ready by making them to keep feet warm, use weatherproof materials, add some extra padding and traction. This way a new niche was born, one between classic boots and sneakers that would make it possible for many to keep their sporty looks even when the weather gets cold.
