With the holiday season in full effect, the chills are officially upon us. Depending on where you live in, warm clothes, hoodies and snow boots are must-wear items, so you’re best to bundle up.

For snearkerheads, though, this season can be a bit of a pain in the ass. Your Jordans aren’t made to slosh around in the snow, and your Yeezys will probably freeze and break apart before another pair hits the market. The sneaker struggle is real.

Luckily, Nike knows what’s up and has a line coming out just in time for winter.

Nike Releases “Winter White” Sneakers Primed For The Snow

The brand took some of its existing models and redesigned them so that, when winter comes around, your shoes can hold their own in the inclement weather while you stay flossin’ with the footwear.

The line comes in mostly white because, you know, snow is white. Why would they come in orange when they’re called “Winter White?” Two of the pairs — the SF Air Force 1 Mid and SF Air Force 1 Hi — come in a white and light gray colorway. The other two pairs — the Lunar Force 1 Duckboot, and Lunar Force 1 Duckboot Low — have an all-white design.

You have to hand it to Nike for coming out with these just in time to battle the treacherous weather. You can rock them on the way to the gym, but it’s probably best not to wear them while you’re hoopin’.
