Wearing sneakers during the cold-weather months is always a challenge. As you bulk up the rest of your wardrobe with sweaters and sturdier fabrics, you're often inclined to pair them with boots. Even when your look calls for sneakers, come November and December, the elements tend to disagree. 

Despite that, there are plenty of weather-ready options of your favorite silhouettes out there. New to that list is Adidas's Stan Smith. Because today, the trusty sneaker you've likely been relying on for years just got an upgrade worth getting excited about.

Adidas added GORE-TEX's latest technology—designed specifically for footwear—called Infinium Thermium to one of its most ubiquitous shoes just in time. The shoe's toe box is equipped with the winter tech to ensure your cold-weather outing isn't ruined by a wet-sock-cold-foot situation, and all without adding any extra aesthetic bulk. 

What you essentially have here is the same affordable, stylish Stan Smith sneaker you know and love, only equipped for that accidental puddle-step or spontaneous shower. Sure, a sneaker might not be the first thing you reach for the next time you're stepping out in cold temperatures. But now that one of your go-to's comes weather-ready, that all could be about to change. 

Stan not your mans? No sweat—Adidas has a ton of other options equipped with Gore-Tex for your weather flexing needs.
