There is a point at which a shoe stops being a sneakerboot and begins to just be a boot that looks somewhat like a sneaker. The Chuck II Waterproof Thermo Boots stop just short of this point.
This pair of Chuck IIs features an incredibly tough rubberized upper paired with a neoprene bootie that both repel water and keep the wearer warm, even through icy rain and snow. For solid traction on freezing winter days, the outsole boasts a higher contrast rubberized grip so you won’t end up sliding around town. Additional comfort is had thanks to the inclusion of Nike’s Counter Climate technology that further helps repel water and weather, and the incredibly popular, soft, and supportive Lunarlon insole. For visibility on those short, dark days, the shoe features 3M Stitching along both the back heel tab and the neoprene bootie. All of these separate elements come together to make this iteration of one of the world’s most popular and recognizable sneakers a winter ready beast. You can get it in either an army green or deep black for $150. [Purchase]
