* Elevate your wardrobe with rust-colored sneakers
* Unique color looks great year round
* Won’t get ruined by dirt or rain like white sneakers
While rust on your car is certainly bad, rust on your feet is actually a good thing.
Rust-colored sneakers (somewhere between orange, brown, and bronze) make a great addition to any wardrobe because they can be worn year round – rain or shine. They look great during the fall and winter with other dark, cold-weather clothes, but they also ground a light outfit in the summer. Plus, you don’t have to worry about a little rain or dirt with rust-colored shoes (like you do with white sneakers), because it won’t be too noticeable.
Because rust is a more unique sneaker color, finding a stylish pair can be tough. To help, here’s six bulletproof options to spruce up your fall/winter shoe selection.
1. Fred Perry Kingston Sneakers
They might look like classic canvas sneakers, but these Fred Perrys have a trick up their sleeve: the canvas is shower resistant. This makes them perfect for transitional days when it’s wet, but not cold enough for boots.

2. ECCO Collin Slip-On
These Collin slip-ons from Ecco make a great office sneaker. They’re a blend between classic slip-ons and loafers, and their premium leather gives a very high-end look for the price.

3. Nike SB Portmore II Mid
These Nikes are great because they modernize the winter work boot with some skate shoe style. The upper is a soft suede and faux leather, and the sole is a sticky gum-rubber for durability.

4. PUMA Avid evoknit
Whether you’re upgrading your running shoe or looking for a less-known trainer to wear around town, these evoknit Pumas make a great pick. They feature a trendy sock-like fit, and look especially good in this buckthorn brown / iron gate colorway.

5. Teva Ember Moc
Lounging around by the fire on a cold day is what we look forward to during winter, and these Tevas bring the coziness to match. They’re somewhere in-between a sneaker and a sleeping bag, making them perfect for quick errands on lazy Sundays.
