Vasque Snowblime UltraDry
warm boot, but roomy for sure

- Size Bought: 11
I picked these up as a warm winter hiker, and truth be told: they have certainly lived up to the expectation. however, this is really my first venture into a dedicated winter boot. I've had insulated hunting boots and muck work boots, but this was my first boot bought soley for winter hikes. now, I found the fit to be very roomy. I have narrow feet and my 3 season boots are Asolo's (very form fitting and snug). This worried me initially, but I've done (7) 4000' + peaks in these boots paired with MSR evo ascent snowshoes. The bindings on the snowshoes take up alot of the slack that the boot provides. These are great boots in every way, but I think I'd have problems if I wore them on long hikes without the aide of snowshoes to keep them snug.

Vasque Snowblime Ultradry Winter Boot
good but not great.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
These boots were a good for light snowing conditions. I walked through icy puddles with these and my feet were dry and warm as long as I kept walking my feet would stay warm but don't stop if temp. gets below 50deg. my feet got cold at these temps. Even with a heavy wool blend sock. After about 65deg. this boot did get too hot to walk in. They do well in sandy and snowy conditions for traction but not in mud as vasque claims they do. I had collected a few pounds of mud with these while walking through a field in Northern AZ. In fact every time I walked outside I would have to clean them up in the utility sink. This constant cleaning didn't go over very well with the mother n law during Thanksgiving. On the other hand sizing and overall comfort was great for my lager volume feet.
A warm, comfy boot!
These boots were just what I needed for a trip to SW Colorado coming up in October (elk hunt). The fact they were 40% off was huge bonus! So far, I've only used them on the frozen, snowy sidewalks of Denver during those late April storms we just had. Traction was great, and my feet were dry and warm. Considering their weight and the feel when walking in them, I have no doubt they'll perform in the mountains as well.
Will this boot accept crampons or snowshoes really well?
You can use strap on crampons with this boot and it'll work great with snowshoes.
