In case you were thinking of switching your sneakers for boots this winter, Nike has just released the top five ways they’re staying ahead of the winter season in sneakers and apparel.

Laser-siped outsole patterns

Just like upgrading to winter tires, Nike recommends winter sneakers. The Nike LunarEpic Flyknit Shield not only features a water resistant upper, but the laser-siped outsole has a car tire like pattern to give the wearer additional traction and hopefully prevent any hydroplaning while running around in the winter months.

High-tech winter layers

For tech-wear enthusiasts, Nike’s Tech Fleece Aeroloft collection is designed to keep the wearer warm but not too hot thanks to laser-cut perforations between layers of down.

Durable and water resistant

Shoes take a beating, especially in the winter months when the snow and slush pile up. Nike recommends their “sneakerboot” collection which all feature “DWR” coating (durable, water-resistant).

Quick action zippers

A part of Nike’s Aeroloft collection, the Gyakusou Zipoff jacket gives runners extra warmth, and the convenience to transform the jacket into a vest thanks to zippers on both sleeves.

Cold weather workout wear

Last on Nike’s list are their Pro Hyperwarm Aeroloft tops which feature “Dri-FIT” offering the wearer increased warmth in a highly breathable garment.
