There are several features you need to look for in order to buy the best snow boot for your needs. Here’s an extended buying guide on how to choose snow boots.

Warmth

It’s important that the boots keep your feet warm. The absolute best boots you can find are typically those people from the North have on their feet – natural fur winter boots with a thick layer of fur. UGGs and Bearpaws are the easiest to come by, although the insulation may probably be too thin for harsh winter weather.

Choose natural seal winter shoes from Canada, Russia or Norway if you want really warm feet.

Remember, that it’s not the amount of fur on the outside that defines how warm the boot is. It’s the quality and quantity of the insulation inside.

Waterproof

Some experts advise on getting 100% waterproof boots for wearing in the snow. Others prefer water-resistant, which will provide better air circulation and moisture repelling features.

The best thing you can do is to choose the boots that suit your weather conditions:

  • If you expect very cоld and dry winter conditions in the ranges under -10°C (and especially under -30°C) opt for tall hеight, thick layer of natural fur insulation and wаtеr-rеѕiѕtаnсе.
  • If you experience mostly wеt and iсу winters, consider wаtеrрrооf boots with dеер quality treads tо рrеvеnt ѕliрѕ and falls.

If you’ve bought boots like UGGs or Bearpaws, you know they are not waterproof. Suede leather snow boots are not waterproof at all! As soon as you get these type of boots you should treat them with waterproofing depending on the outside material of the boot:

Traction

Slipping and falling is one of the first reasons for bone fractures in winter. Especially older people are in danger.

Buy boots with exceptionally good traction and supply them with extra grips:
