Warmth, impermeability and ventilation: the criteria for choosing your snow and outdoor boots
There’s nothing like warm boots to face the winter’s snow, freezing cold and strong gusts of wind. However, to protect you properly, it’s crucial that the model you choose fulfils various criteria. The three main functions of outdoor boots are to keep your feet nice and warm, to be completely waterproof, and wick away perspiration thanks to good aeration. After that, it all depends on your activities. For walks in town, give preference to low-top walking boots. If you’re expecting to go for rambles in the mountains or snow, go for high-top designs with reinforcement, it will prevent the snow from getting in. The Salomon and Lowa brands, in particular, offer shoes and boots especially for long winter hiking.
