Winter Boots

 

If you’re looking for new cold weather footwear, SKIS.com stocks a wide array of winter boots for men, women and kids. Winter boots come in many different styles and have tons of different features for you to consider when purchasing a new pair.

 

First decide which features you’re looking for in a pair of winter boots. You may be looking for something super heavy duty for frigid, snowy days. Or seeking a pair of winter boots to get you through the cold rain and snow. Or maybe something more minimalistic for chilly days with zero accumulation.

 

The most common features of winter boots are insulation and waterproofing. This ensures your feet stay warm and dry in cold, wet conditions. The most common form of insulation in winter boots is typically synthetic, like Thinsulate or PrimaLoft. However, sometimes wool, fleece, fur or even down can be used to insulate winter boots.

 

When it comes to waterproof winter boots, most brands use their own proprietary membrane or coating – but some do choose to use GORE-TEX, which is the leader in waterproof/breathable technology.

 

The next thing that you’d want to decide is what style of boot is right for you? Are you looking for something more fashion forward, or something designed for durability? Some boots like Pajar are designed for aesthetic and warmth. While others, like Sorel are made to be worn in rain, slush or snow.

 

No matter what you’re looking for we are sure that SKIS.com carries a winter boot to suit your specific needs.

The first thing to consider when purchasing a pair of hiking or trail shoes is how much support you need. If you’re not out on the trials that often you may want to consider purchasing a “mid” boot. Mid boots typically sit right over your ankle bone, this will offer support on un-even terrain.

 

If you are out on the trail a lot, you’re probably more seasoned and can get away with something more minimalistic like a trail running shoe, or a low-cut hiker.

 

If you’re into trail running, then it is best to go with a more minimalistic option to keep your feet and legs from getting too fatigued. Under Armour, Merrell and The North Face all make a wide variety of trail running shoes for all ability levels.
