2 Winter Outfits That Will Get You By means of 90% of the Remainder of the Season

Thanks to the boot scale, the Chelseas add a bit of rugged refinement, dressing down the topcoat and de-Grandma-ing the chunky knit sweater. The ruggedness of the boots enhances the rugged qualities of the topcoat which has a military origin, and the Irish outdoorsman history of the sweater, counterbalancing whatever other connotations they may also have picked up.

If you’ve been following Primer over the last year, you already know the chunky Chelsea has become a mainstay for me. It’s easy to slip on and off when having to run outside while working from home and is super comfy too.

They have the all-weather toughness of work boots with the refinement of a dressier style. These from Thursday Boots are made of waxed WeatherSafe suede, Goodyear welted with a StormKing rubber outsoles, meaning they’ll hold up to the snow and slush of winter. Try that with a thin, leather-soled Chelsea. (Don’t actually try that.)

For days requiring less treking through a winter wonderland, Nothing New’s high top is more than just a sexy, sleek take on the canvas sneaker. Founded by some of the same folks who started Thursday Boots, and true to their name, Nothing New repurposes 5.6 plastic bottles per pair. Uppers and laces made of recycled plastic, outsoles born from recycled rubber and recycled cork, heel counters made from recycled post-industrial fishing nets. Hell, even the labels are 100% recycled.

But these aren’t some do-good sneaker that will begin crumbling with wear: They’re assembled with true stitch construction instead of the cement many cheap shoes are made with.

To cap it all off, when you’re done with them, you can send them back to Nothing New and they’ll recycle them into new sneakers.
