adidas Torsion SP Low Gore-Tex®

A snow day – again – means that some waterproofing is required. Ditch the moonboots and find yourself a pair of these adidas Torsion Specials. They’re not the tallest model (you’ll get wet socks if you’re hiking through anything deeper than 2 inches), but my feet were still bone dry after an hour trudging through slush around Croydon.

And they look really good too: I voted them my favourite release of 2009 on Sneaker Freaker.
