You can save your money, and just bring along some old sweatshirt to cut up.
IF your dog starts shivering, or hopping on 3 legs, then use the sweaters, and that business should end.
True story: I was out in extra cold weather (it's all relative to what your dog has adapted to, so you are right to be concerned) and my former gsd started hopping on 3 legs and I REALLY wanted to keep going--so I took off my scarf and wrapped it around her neck. She was fine after that. Keeping the body warm keeps the feet warm.
Another reason for 3 legged hopping is iceballs stuck to the feet (they will drop and bite at them, so you will know)--vaseline does a good job at no cost. An hour walk will run it off, so there is no mess to worry about when they get back in. It will also help with salt owies.
Most dogs LOVE snow. Make a snowball, they love to bite at them, chase them, jump for them.
Enjoy your winter trip.

All of my other dogs were GSD's, sadly missed, moving forward
