The GORE-TEX waterproof upper, fleece lining and waterproof tongue are some of the shoes’ highlights due to their superior protection against the cold season. Its fleece lining will help keep one’s feet nice and warm while the GORE-TEX will take care of those snowy days. It also features an easy rope lace-up system that can be adjusted to one’s preference for a customized fit. 

These sneakers are available in sizes for both men and women. 

These winterized Chucks from Converse are a reimagination of the classic but are much sturdier and warmer. The boot-like sneaker is not only stylish but also a very reliable pair to wear for the frosty weather. A contrast toe bumper and boot-inspired accents complete the overall look of these Chucks. 

There are several colorways to choose from for these kicks, the all-black, the black and white, brown and green and comes with different color variations for the faux fur lining. Also, the monochrome look allows this to be worn in slightly more formal settings. Since this pair provides incredible comfort and protection for the wet and cold, one can wear this throughout the day without getting frostbites. 

The shoes give off this minimalist, casual street style vibe. Both men and women won’t have a hard time pairing these sneakers with any outfit. They’re best to be paired with jeans, jogger pants, and sweatpants.  As for the top, one can wear them with almost anything good for the winter like sweaters, puffy jackets, hoodies, and long coats. One can stay warm in style with these kicks. 

Inspired by the classic Converse silhouette, these Winter GORE-TEX Chuck Taylors are composed of quality materials that are built to withstand any weather conditions. This high-top sneaker boot uses leather with GORE-TEX material that offers waterproof comfort in cold weather. It also has a water-repellent tongue to wick away all those unwanted wetness. Moreover, the insulating fur lining adds more warmth to the shoes. 

With its diamond tread outsole and boot-like hardware, there is more than enough grip and traction to avoid slippages. The look is completed by an embossed medial patch on the upper.

Chuck Taylors have been a cult fan base–people who admire the shoes’ timeless American style. The iconic Converse Chuck Taylor All Star is regarded as one of the most timeless, stylish and versatile sneakers ever created. Originally released in 1917 as the All Star, the Chuck Taylor name was added after the popular basketball player endorsed the model. 

With Converse expanding their productions towards producing boots and protective weatherized gears, they have developed extreme cold weather boots, one of which is the Converse Winter Gore-Tex Chuck Taylor. A soaker-proof Chuck Taylor? It may be impossible at first but it turned out, with the benefit of Gore-Tex, water puddles have become a thing of the past. In 2017, Converse first started working with Gore and continues to expand on its offerings. The brand relied on the GTX testing process to ensure that the design and construction fit Converse’s efforts in foot comfort. Using an underwater walking simulator, the waterproofness of the Gore is confirmed which proves the integrity of the Gore-Tex bootie inside and the outer shell’s treatments. 

This classic silhouette in its "winter" version is one of the successful sneaker variations that has been produced by Converse with Gore-Tex uppers. The shoe was able to keep the classic style of its inspiration model but has been specifically upgraded for the inclement weather. These Winter Gore-Tex Chucks, which are very warm and cozy, are designed with water-repellent leather upper, insulated fleece, rope laces, and a revamped rubber outsole for traction. 

  • The OrthoLite insoles serve as the shoe’s added cushioning. 
  • Its rope laces are moisture-wicking.
  • The shoe’s footbed is antibacterial.
  • Its faux fur lining keeps the feet warm and cozy.
