The North Face Boys' Winter Sneaker isn't your average, casual sneaker. It's beefed up for comfort in winter's weather. HydroSeal keeps snow and wetness out of the shoe, while HeatSeeker insulation adds warmth for cold temperatures. A drawcord closure cinches easy enough for children to secure the fit. The Dynalyte midsole adds flexibly cush to feel like a normal sneaker, and rubber sole pods add traction to winter's icy ground.
