The time for autumnal footwear is finally here. Sure, the season calls for a healthy dose of dope boots, but don't turn your back on your sneaker collection just yet. The fall sneaker is a crucial category and one that shouldn't be forgotten. Luckily for your feet, Converse has an entire group of cold-weather kicks on deck. The brand's Mountain Club collection offers the tried-and-true style you know and love, but with upgraded technical materials to protect your toes during the forthcoming chilly months.
One of the standout sneakers from the group is the Chuck Taylor MC18, a style inspired by a military rubber boot that was produced by Converse in the 1950s. (It was aptly named the Extreme Cold Weather Boot.) Another extremely sharp silhouette within the lineup is the Bosey Chuck 70, a reimagined riff on the iconic high-top that comes complete with water-repellent materials and rugged hiker vibes. Both styles fuse sporty heritage with a future-forward design, which is enough to make them a covetable sneaker as is. Throw in the fact that the kicks can also tackle brutal weather conditions, and you've got yourself a must-cop cold-weather sneaker.
These days, plenty of folks are looking for a sneaker that can pull double duty. It needs to be sturdy enough for rugged outdoor wear while still remaining stylish so that you wouldn't be embarrassed to be seen wearing it. In this case, the water-repellent upper and hardwearing toe guard on these Converse kicks will help you flex and stay dry when you're running around town. Any sneaker that keeps your feet warm and looks this stylish is undoubtedly one worth adding to your fall rotation.
