The Best Sneakers To Wear In The Rain
If you’re a true Sneakerhead, then you know that sneakers are the perfect choice for footwear when it comes to comfort, style, and performance. Some people like to wear sneakers year-round, but unpredictable weather can make this very difficult depending on your local climate. Knit and mesh sneakers are an ideal, lightweight option for exercise, but keeping your feet dry and out of the elements is not as easy. Brands such as Nike, Adidas, New Balance and Under Armour are now making sneakers specifically designed for bad weather. If you hate having wet socks, try out one of the following sneakers.
Adidas Ultra Boost Mid ATR
Ever since the Adidas Ultra Boost made its coveted debut in 2015, it has been one of the most popular sneakers on the market. These multipurpose shoes appeal to performance runners, fashionistas, and comfort fanatics alike. The ATR (all-terrain) version features a sock-like construction on top and a water-resistant Primeknit upper for optimum protection against the elements. The Continental outsoles are also great for running in the rain.
New Balance Cypher Run
Although the New Balance Cypher Run was not designed with bad weather specifically in mind, it does do a great job of withstanding it. The sneakers have a mid-top bootie construction and are made out of perfectly engineered mesh, similar to most other running sneakers. These shoes also feature a rubber ribbed overlay on the toe. The Cypher Run increases durability while protecting your feet from the elements.
Nike Air Presto Mid Utility
The Nike Air Presto was actually released back in 2004 as a futuristic, lightweight running shoe for athletes. The low-cut version is still very popular on the market today. If you live an active lifestyle, this shoe is made for you. The Utility version of the shoe is perfect for taking on the elements. It features a mid-top design with a water repellent, sock-like upper, insulated inner linings, and thick outsoles for additional traction.
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Waterproof Nubuck
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star has been one of the most iconic lifestyle shoes to hit the market to date, but its trademark canvas upper does not hold up in any type sort of damp weather. To cater to those that have struggled with this, Converse has re-engineered the classic silhouette to include a waterproof Nubuck leather upper, inner booties, and durable outsoles. Thus, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Waterproof Nubuck was born.
