    Battle-ready.

    You don't have to get used to cold feet just because it's winter. Vasque crammed 400g Thinsulate synthetic insulation into the waterproof Snowburban II Ultradry Winter Boot to keep your feet toasty no matter what the weather is doing. Since staying warm is only half of the battle, the boot is constructed with rough-and-ready waterproof leather uppers that keep moisture out, and a dual-density EVA footbed that's built to support you for all day snowy adventures. When you're scrambling up snowy trails, or walking your little one to school on icy sidewalks, the Nordic Rover outsole adds extra grip with winter traction lugs that are hit with razor siping for no-slip protection.

    Very warm and comfortable, But ......,.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 13
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I was looking for a an insulated boot to replace a pair of 5 year old Keen snow boots that just could not keep the water out when snow turned to slush. Despite the odd unattractive appearance of the boot I went with the Vasque Snowburban. At present, I haven't had a chance to test the boots in wet conditions since it's still January and it's been quite cold; with the wrap around design it appears as though the will do quite well. They have kept my feet quite warm in near zero weather and fit me like a glove. The boot runs a bit small so chose a size 13 which is a full 1 and a half sizes larger than my normal shoe size to allow for thick socks etc.. The main problem I have with this boot is that the tread retains snow and ice in most winter conditions. The boot bottoms just become slick with packed snow and their difficult to clean out. Most winter boots I've noticed ( my old keen's included ) have wide tread to prevent this packing situation. So this boot is really worthless if having good traction in snow is important. I thought of complaining but decided I'd just spend more money and get a really good all around boot for cold winter hiking and keep this pair for non snowy conditions since they really do fit very well and have keep my feet very warm.

    Impressive Boots

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11.5

    I bought these boots to deal with Minnesota cold and have gotten a good test over the last few days. Out of the box, I found them a little difficult to get into (I have high arches which may contribute to this). Once on though, they are very comfortable and warm. Unlike another review, I found them to fit true to size in both length and width.
    I was initially taken aback by not having speed laces on the ankles. After taking them on and off several times, I actually prefer this setup over a more traditional one. The laces are long enough to allow the gusseted tongue to stretch as far as it goes without any unlacing. As a result, I find them to be faster and less fussy to put on.
    The outsole has been sufficiently grippy for dealing with snow and ice. As cold as it has been, I haven't encountered any liquid water, so no idea how waterproof they are.
    After a 90-minute fat bike ride at -18F, I can confirm they are warm. My feet never got too hot or cold.
    Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with these boots. If you have super-high arches, you may want to try on to make sure getting in and out isn't too difficult. Other than that one small caveat, I can't recommend them any more highly.

    I agree with this reviewer. i have these boots as well as the Salomon Toundra CSWP Pro's and the Columbia Bugaboot Plus III with Omni Heat. Of the three, i prefer the Vasque although they are the heaviest. The traction is amazing and they are definitely warm. In respect with the other two boots i've mentioned, i would say the Vasque Snowburban are the warmest and provide the best water protection and traction in cold, harsh conditions. The Salomon's are lighter and equally warm, however, i wondered if my toes were starting to feel a little bit of the cold after 90 minutes hiking in -5 degree F temps. Finally, Columbia is not serious about their performance gear so why should i take them seriously? That said, the Bugaboots are the most comfortable and easy to lace up. (Editorial: I believe there's an inverse relationship between the cost of a product's licensed marketing - in Columbia's case licensing Star Wars themed gear - and the quality of the products they produce. Just an observation...)

THEY BEAT SOREL LINER BOOTS AND RUBBER BOOTS BY MILES. MODERATELY LIGHT WEIGHT TOO. I LOVE THESE EXCELLENT BOOTS AND THE SUPERB PRICE. PERRRRRRRRRRRECT!!! SEE YOU SHOVELING SNOW!

    WARM, COOL BOOTS...

    Runs Small, Terrible lacing system

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 11
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    I ordered a pair of these from Backcountry.com. I chose size 11
    because that is my standard size and a perfect fit in my Breeze III which I have been using in cold weather with a pair of warm socks .
    The Snowburbans were extremely narrow and I would say at least a full size too short in length. They were also very stiff and unlike the Breeze would require an extended break in period. I managed to get my foot into the boots with much effort but needed my wife's help to get them off. this was with a much thinner pair of socks than I normally wear in the winter

    Also, what was Vasque thinking when they designed the lacing system for these boots? Every other shoe vasque makes has open speed lace hooks to secure the laces on the upper part of the boot to make it easy to get them on and off but these require you to thread the laces through tight leather loops that make getting them on and a major pain in the rear.

    That being said the boots are very well made and look like they are built to last

    Unfortunately I had to return the boots and will have to look for a different brand for my tall winter boot. Unfortunately most of the alternatives in BC
    are sold out in my size

    Agree on the horrible lacing system. They look like they are built to last, but not so. I bought a pair of snowburban I in 2016. The lacing system is the same. They are definitely not built to last. I probably only wore them about a dozen times before the stitching that creates the leather loops ripped out so now they don't lace up at all. FYI - I did not buy them from back country.
