Nike ACG Mountain Fly GORE-TEX
Nike ACG continue to create gear for all conditions, and their Mountain Fly GORE-TEX is no exception!

Clarks Wallabee GTX
Picture this: you've been invited to a formal event on an ultra-rainy day. What do you put on-foot? Well, the Clarks Wallabee GTX of course!
GORE-TEX-adorned Wallabees aren't new and have been a part of collaborations with the likes of Supreme and BEAMS, but Clarks have now decided to waterproof their GR iterations. This beautiful 'Dark Tan' pair released recently, and you can cop from the brand's webstore.
In recent years, Salomon have made the impressive leap from catering for trail-driven consumers to now being the go-to for the fashion-forward crowd. Thankfully, in doing so, they haven't forgotten their functional roots.
The Snowcross is a perfect example. Functional yet fashionable, it's the perfect cold-weather sneaker that's sure to get necks cranking. With an impenetrable protective layer covering the outside of the shoe, and zip down the middle makes sure your feet stay nice and warm. Need them for the 2021 winter? Cop now at Farfetch.
Nike ACG Mountain Fly Low
As the name suggests, Nike's ACG (All Conditions Gear) line really is built for all conditions, making it the perfect go-to when the harsher months hit. And whether you're navigating the urban jungle or treacherous rocky mountain terrain, the ACG Mountain Fly Low has got you covered.
Webbed nylon has been placed around the outside to protect the wearer from the elements, while the Flyplate and rugged outsole keep your feet safe. They're readily available right now, so cop either colourway today from END. or Asphaltgold.
Salomon XA-Alpine Mid
Another Salomon silhouette, the XA-Alpine Mid is for those who need to brave the cold weather on the fly. Fusing key elements of Nordic skiing and trail running, this silhouette boasts a clean laceless slip-on look. It also rocks a Carbon Chassis and Contagrip midsole. The hefty layer around the outside helps keep your feet protected, making these a super reliable option for the colder months. Sneakersnstuff are stocked!
Pharrell x adidas Terrex Free Hiker COLD.RDY
Pharrell Williams and adidas have had a long-standing collaborative partnership, creating a broad range of shoes over the years. So, when they touched the Terrex line, their intentions were clear.
Using the adidas Terrex Free Hiker, the duo literally called the shoes 'COLD.RDY' – which doesn't really need further explanation. Drenched in GORE-TEX, and with a Continental rubber outsole down below, they're the perfect winterised sneaker for 2021. BSTN have a few sizes still available.
Reebok Classic Leather GORE-TEX Infinium
The Reebok Classic Leather may seem like an unorthodox addition to the list, however, this bad boy has been injected with GORE-TEX Infinium.
Blessed with the fan-favourite CL shape, the underlays have been reinforced with the famous water-wicking tech, making this a sleek cold-weather option. Sneakersnstuff have got you covered.
