Summer days are numbered, which means sockless slides, white canvas low-tops, and any other shoe of this nature will soon be taking a rest from your rotation. Now is the time to get ready to transition to more seasonal-appropriate footwear that’ll withstand those inevitable fall downpours.
To make the transition smoother, we’ve brought you our selection of the ten best sneakers to take you through fall. Don’t worry about getting these kicks dirty — they are extremely durable and — for the most part — on the affordable side of the sneaker market too.
Our selection includes the usual suspects from Nike, ASICS, and adidas, as well as more outdoors-geared brands such as Salomon. If you’re into retro-inspired silhouettes, we’ve included a pair of triple white adidas Originals Yung-1 and the super comfortable ASICS Skysensor Japan. For those wanting to keep up with the dad-core trend, our selection also boasts pops-approved kicks such as the Salomon XT-6 and a pair of Security Sneakers from Maison Margiela.
A key trend for fall, we’ve also included some hiking-ready trail shoes such as the high-protection Snowcross ADV LTD from Salomon.
