Abandon your normal winter activity.
Instead of hibernating all winter, slip on the Lowa Men's Renegade Ice GTX Boot and go snowshoeing, hiking, and exploring. A Gore-Tex insert gives this boot guaranteed waterproof breathable protection, while Partalena fleece ensures warmth throughout winter's weather. Made of nubuck and full-grain leather, the Renegade's upper stays strong for seasons of snowy escapades. Lowa's PU Monowrap midsole delivers outstanding shock absorption, long-lasting durability, and an eco-friendly construction. The G3 sole mixes rubber with Tencel fibers to ensure exceptional grip on snow and ice.

the best of the best!!!!!!!!!!!
Because is the best for my work
Best winter boots I could find
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
These are the best winter boots I could find, but I'm not sure they are worth the price.
I wanted a pair of boots for snowshoeing. My old snow boots were too loose, so my heel would lift and my socks would end up around my toes. Mountaineering boots are too stiff and heavy and expensive, and most of them don't even have much insulation. My feet always get cold.
I tried almost all the cheaper winter boots I could find. Everything at REI, and a pair of Columbia boots. I wanted boots that could keep water and snow out up to the ankles. There's always slight a chance I'll end up with my feet in a stream that was hidden under the snow, or that I'll have to cross a stream in the spring. I can't take chances with wet feet in the snow. I also wanted a good fit to use for hikes and snowshoeing, and as much insulation as possible. None of the boots I tried had all that, except these.
These are rated to -5C (23F) according to a little tag that comes with them. I used them today, snowshoeing, hiking, and sitting around, and I would say that's a realistic rating. Much more realistic than boots that are rated to -40 or -80 that have no more insulation than these. The insulation mainly comes from the Partalena fleece lining. It's not that thick, but it's about the same as what's in any other boots I tried.
Lowa boots usually fit me well, but I have to go up a half size as of last year. I have a pair of Zephyr GTX boots, and the first pair lasted 12 miles, and the second pair lasted about a year, so I hope these are more durable. The full grain leather construction should help.
The boots have a weird sole that's supposed to help on ice. It's made of circles of spongy material surrounded by little fibers, surrounded by rubber. It didn't help much on the snow and ice I tried it on.
