The Best Shoes for Winter Have Fur Lining

January 07, 2019

When snow starts to pile up and brutal winds blow in off Lake Michigan, the desire to remain firmly planted at home with blankets and a mug of cocoa is more than a little tempting. But there are only so many days you can stay cooped up, and those Postmates charges can strike a massive blow to your wallet.

When the outside world is calling but temperatures remain frigid, getting bundled up is your only option. One area that never seems to get enough warmth no matter how many pairs of wool socks you don is the feet. Marc Nolan is solving that problem with the Fur-Lined Collection: three different styles, all featuring genuine sheep fur lining. Your days of fearing the freeze are over, and your formerly frostbitten toes will thank you.

Zack High-Top Sneakers

End your wintertime weekend hibernation and pound the pavement with the Zack fur-lined sneakers. Half calfskin leather and half sheepskin suede, Zack’s upper has a high-top silhouette to keep the wind from whipping around your ankles, while the sheep fur lining makes sure you stay extra warm. Rock salt and puddles have ruined many a white shoe, but Zack’s thick black rubber gum soles are weather-resistant and winter-ready. And latex memory foam insoles make sure you stay comfortable on your way to the bar, while you wait in line, and when you hit the dance floor.

Zack in black is an everyday sneaker with just the right amount of luxury feel. Able to perfectly transition from casual to dressier occasions, Zack will match anything in your closet, and keep you more comfortable and cozy than any other shoe too. For taco Tuesday happy hour, wear Zack with a flannel button-up and your favorite jeans, then pair him with black denim, a black blazer, and a crisp white t-shirt for a cool Friday date night look. Step out with a sleek all black look or switch out the black laces for an equally chic maroon hue – Zack comes with both colors.

You never knew you needed a pair of brown sneakers until now.   hosts a medley of ultra-versatile hues that will coordinate with most anything in your wardrobe. The calfskin leather upper’s caramel color melts into a chocolate brown and is met with a dark espresso hue on the luxurious sheepskin suede counter, while the matching chocolate brown laces and gum sole pull the look together. Wear Zack with navy trousers, a maroon sweater, and a camel coat for everything from Sunday errands to casual Friday week in and week out.

Marc Nolan Men's Shoes Chicago Ellison Fur-Lined Sneakers

Ellison Slip-On Sneakers

The Ellison fur-lined sneakers are the best travel shoes for men during the winter weather months. With a simple silhouette and elastic inserts for a more flexible fit, Ellison is perfect for slipping on and off in airport security lines. Soft sheep fur lining will keep you warm in perpetually frigid airplane cabins while the latex memory foam insole will keep you comfortable for the entirety of your journey.

For the minimalist, Ellison in black is chic and unassuming. Quality takes center stage with black calfskin leather, black sheep fur and pops of burgundy on the elastic inserts and accent heel. Wear Ellison with comfortable yet classy travel clothes like black joggers and a cashmere blend hoodie, then pair him with black denim and a turtleneck sweater to start your adventures.

For the maximalist, Ellison in cognac hosts an array of colors both contrasting and perfectly harmonized. Chocolate brown burnishing blends seamlessly with the caramel calfskin leather while cobalt blue accents add eye-catching elements. Ellison’s color theory is rounded out with slate grey plush sheep fur and a thick white gum sole. Let Ellison do the talking by pairing him with dark wash denim, a grey thermal and a navy blue puffer coat.

Marc Nolan Men's Shoes Chicago Ryker Black Fur-Lined Boots

Ryker Sheepskin Boots

With a malleable sheepskin leather upper, full sheep fur lining, an easy lace-up silhouette, and a shock-absorbing EVA rubber sole, Ryker is the ultimate boot to dominate your wintertime commute. What makes Ryker different is his full fur lining – not just inside the upper, but on the insoles as well. Like walking on a cloud, you’ll want to wear Ryker long after you’ve gotten to work and for all your winter outings. Wear Ryker as a dress boot with charcoal slacks and a blue button-up, and for more casual days, wear him with black corduroy pants and a cable knit sweater.
