Sneaker Boot Review

Sneaker Boots

Sneaker boots, hybrids between sneakers and boots appear to be an emerging trend. Some look like the old high top sneakers but there are also many newer, fashion-forward styles. They seem to be a reasonable option for those who are reluctant to give up the comfort of a sneaker for a trendier look.

I have broken (loosely!) the sneaker boots into sporty, casual, dress(ier) and raised heel. I have also noted which foot structures would be appropriate for the shoes. The abbreviations are as follows:

Pes planus (low arch) = PP

Pes cavus (high arch) = PC

Bunions/Hammertoes = BH

Hallux rigidus (stiff big toe joint) = HR

Narrow foot = N

 

Sporty

Forsake – Loop (weatherproof)
