Now that winter is in full swing, we’re swapping out our sandals and slides for boots and sneakers. The only problem is that there are so many cool sneaker brands and styles out there at the moment that it can be hard to know where to start on your hunt for the perfect pair.
Of course, you can never go wrong with classic sneakers from brands like Nike, Adidas, Reebok, New Balance, Converse or Vans, which all offer tried-and-true silhouettes like Dunks, Sambas, Chuck Taylors and Sk8s. However, you’ve also got the option of reinvented styles that are sportier, chunkier, or slimmer designs than the OGs. You can also get your hands on some collectables if you’re into that kinda thing.
While traditionally, we stick to neutral colourways, there are also tonnes of vibrant colours to help brighten up your winter wardrobe. All you have to do is choose your faves and head to the checkout.
Nike Dunks Low
If you’re on the hunt for a specific pair of Nike sneakers that you can no longer find in regular retail stores, we’d suggest checking out Novelship.

New Balance 550 Sneakers
The New Balance 550s are the return of another classic. Initially worn by pro athletes back in the ’80s, the new 550 pays tribute to the 1989 original. They’re clean, simple and come in a bunch of retro colourways. They’re a timeless, staple shoe — and we’re obsessed with them.
Vans Sk8 Low Shoe
Honestly, if you don’t own a pair of Vans yet, respectfully, what are you doing? The Sk8 Low sneakers are a takedown of the legendary Vans high-top skate shoe.
Veja Campo Unisex Sneaker
While Veja is newer on the scene, the sneaker brand is fast becoming popular thanks to its low skate style shoes, chunkier sneaks and vintage tennis style shoe.
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Platform Ox
Find us a pair of shoes that’s more iconic than a pair of Chuck Taylors. We’ll wait…
