What Are Sneaker Boots? They’re Literally Everywhere!

By November 19, 2021Food for thought, Sneaker News

The Best Sneaker Boots for Winter - AIO BotThe only thing that makes boots a legit part of today’s fashion is SNEAKER BOOTS. Boots not sneaker bots *wink wink. Okay, all sneaker jokes aside. They’re the ones keeping boots alive if we’re honest about it. But, does that explain why they’ve recently gotten SO popular?

Sneaker boots are the boot-sneaker hybrid that is literally the best of both worlds when it comes to winter footwear. Who says that you have to give up wearing hyped kicks during the colder seasons of the year? Because we kinda have a conflict here. We love our kicks, we wanna wear them all winter long! 

BUT, the constant shoe care they require can get pretty tiring sometimes. And let’s not get into wet socks. Just no. So, here’s a rundown of this year’s most popular sneaker boots and what we think of them!

EPIC SNEAKER BOOTS

#1 YEEZY NSLTD KHAKI

Retail Price: $340
Average Resale Price: $471

So, when you think about sneaker boots, obviously the Yeezy NSLTD comes to mind! Of course, without any BS involved, we gotta be honest. The NSLTD may probably be one of the weirdest and unconventional boots you ever come across. They are a mashup between the epic Yeezy Foam Runners and some kind of astronaut space boots. But, it is insulated and very much a hightop that can take the weather. 

#2 YEEZY KNIT RNR

Retail Price: $400
Average Resale Price: $505

Next, another deformed mashup Kanye West sneaker or sneaker boots – call it what you want. But, the Yeezy KNIT RNR BT obviously came out of the same brainstorming session as the NSLTD. This boot probably features leftover KNIT RNRs and in a move toward sustainability, Ye decided to make boots! But that’s just what we like to think. And, if you’re worried about getting your feet soggy, these kicks were updated to take on the storms!

#3 YEEZY DESERT BOOT TAUPE BLUE

Retail Price: $200
Average Resale Price: $316

Yes, we’re adding sneaker boots that are probably more on the ugly side than we would like to admit. But, we can’t deny that these kicks serve the purpose of a boot. After all, that IS what they are – sneaker boots. Although the reason we call them ugly is because of how dysfunctional they appear as sneakers. But, as boots, they do the job right. You keep your toes dry, and everyone’s happy.

#4 JORDAN 9 NRG BLACK GUM

Retail Price: $225
Average Resale Price: $348

Next up, we’ve got the Air Jordan 9 NRG Black Gum that takes inspiration from the utility-intense Special Field Boot. These sneaker boots are the ones that prove – more than anything – that boots are back for the winter! What’s even better is that this is an upcoming release. So, make sure you brush up on your SNKRS knowledge here!

#5 ADIDAS SLEEK BOOT IVY PARK

Retail Price: $190
Average Resale Price: $176

The Adidas x IVY Park collection also featured a cool addition to the sneaker boots. It was part of Beyonce’s athleisure brand that featured a high-cut collar and premium leather/suede uppers. Also, the metal hardware with the elastic bungee cord around the heels gave it even more of a utility-type look. Finally, the exaggerated gum rubber sole makes it easy to avoid those pesky rain puddles!

#6 JORDAN 12 ROYALTY TAXI

Air Jordan 12 Royalty Taxi - Sneaker_Boots - AIO BotRelease Date: November 13th, 2021
Retail Price: $190
Average Resale Price: $240

Moving on to the Air Jordan 12 Royalty Taxi – one of our favorite sneaker boots to date! It is an elevated version of the Air Jordan 12 Taxi perfect for the cold weather. The leather overlays on the mudguard makes it even more waterproof. In addition to the natural high-collar qualities of a Jordan 12. If all sneaker boots were like this, we’d wear them all year round!

#7 JORDAN 11 COOL GREY

Air Jordan 11 Cool Grey - Sneaker Boots - AIO BotRelease Date: December 11th, 2021
Retail Price: $225
Average Resale Price: $401

Finally, the last one of our sneaker boots is yet another Jordan – the Air Jordan 11 Cool Grey. With the blend of nubuck and premium patent leather, it’s perfect for the rain! AND, although this Jordan is more on the brighter spectrum, it happens to be easy to clean. That is because they’ve focused the patent leather all around the midsoles and mudguard. That’s the area that get dirty the most. Know your sneaker anatomy, fam. 

That’s all we’ve got so far on sneaker boots that you can make use of this Winter season. Never again have to suffer from wet-toebox syndrome or damp uppers! You won’t ever have to think twice about flexing your drip when it’s dripping outside! Just because the temperature’s COOL doesn’t mean you can’t be! Okay, we’ll stop now. 

BONUS BOOT!
AND, of course, it goes without saying that Jordan 1s are kinda the ultimate sneaker boots. They’ve got the insulation from the leather, they’re high-tops… In short, they got it all! You can wear them all year round! Also, since we’re on the topic of sneaker boots we can NOT go without mentioning the latest Yeezy 1050 Hi-Res! After such a longtime of thirst traps and teasers, we’re finally getting a release! Read all about it here

BUT, we don’t know exactly when it’s dropping. So, you make sure you keep it locked firmly on our blog for all the latest updates!
