Winter Sneakers - these kicks last longer

So if you want your sneakers to last a long time, it's important to keep them clean! But it's also important to look for durability and longevity when buying sneakers. For example, leather creases more quickly than other materials. Nevertheless, such uppers are easy to keep clean.

Suede lasts longest when combined with mesh. It doesn't crease, but it's important to waterproof it well beforehand.

What also helps your kicks stay good for a long time is GORE-TEX. This material prevents your shoes from getting dirty in any weather. It's breathable but still water repellent and has been tried and tested for years. Looking for a pair that's rainproof? Then check our search engine for "GORE-TEX" models.
