Top: Nike Dunk Sky Hi Sneakerboot For many sneaker-loving ladies, the passion for kicks isn't something that comes and goes as seasons shift, but when winter weather (read: Snowvember) rears it's often ugly and messy head many of us keep our favorite kicks in their boxes and opt for more weather-appropriate options. Timbs, anyone?

While the concept of the sneakerboot has been around for quite some time, it seems many of the brands we love have revved up their winter weather appeal this season with a number of options that provide equal parts kick appeal and November through February protection. A few brands (Nike, in particular) have taken their sneakerboot appeal to us ladies, bringing forth cute silhouettes packed with suede, mesh, and enough protective paneling to guarantee your comfort.

So, will you be hopping on the sneakerboot bandwagon? My answer is yes. After seeing a few decent joints that caught my eye, I don't mind biting the $100-180 USD bullet and getting my purchase on. Take a look at some of my favorite picks below and let us know if you'll be sneakerbooting this winter.
