6 Winter Trainers to Keep Your Feet Warm

Finding the best winter trainers to accompany you for the colder months is essential to staying warm and dry when you’re out and about. Keeping your feet warm during the colder months is a challenge winter trainers can fix. Winter trainers have heat insulating properties that keep your feet safe from the cold weather outside. Finding the best winter trainers is essential to staying active, stylish, and warm this winter.

What are Winter Trainers Made From?

Finding the right materials to kit out your footwear is important to ensure you have the best winter trainers for your needs. All year long, your men’s trainers or women’s trainers need to keep up with your busy lifestyle. They need to take care of your feet, while you focus on the things that really matter.

The best winter trainers are made from materials which keep your feet warm and dry no matter the conditions. They should also have  slip-resistant soles to keep you stable over every terrain. At Giesswein, we’ve found one of the best winter trainer materials is  merino wool

Some of the  properties of merino wool for winter trainers include:

Thanks to its temperature-regulating quality, merino wool keeps your feet warm in the winter, without them feeling overheated and stuffy. That way you can keep going on that frosty hike or continue gift shopping all day long. The best winter trainers are ones which can help your feet stay warm and cosy without getting too warm or feeling unable to breathe.

Thanks to its ability to let air through, merino wool is a great material to make  breathable sneakers that allow your feet to cool down when they get too overheated. This means that along with its antibacterial qualities, your  merino shoes won’t smell. Should you feel the need to give them a quick refresh, though, you can, because you can easily  wash merino wool in the washing machine. That makes the best winter trainers even better, because they’ll be clean and refreshed whenever you need them to.

As the months get a little wetter, the best winter trainers keep your feet dry. Luckily, our winter trainers are water-repellant, making them optimal  water-resistant trainers. The surface of merino wool means that water is discouraged from absorbing. This means that even when it’s raining heavily, your feet should be dry inside your winter trainers!
