Brave the blizzard.
Tromp through deep-snow drifts, freezing temperatures, and iced-over sidewalks with the waterproof protection, toasty insulation, and sure-footed grip of the Salomon Women's X Ultra Winter CS WP Boot. Ready for winter's worst, this boot features a waterproof nubuck leather upper and waterproof Climashield membrane for total protection when you're shoveling snowed-in driveways, crossing slushy parking lots, and strolling through sopping-wet spring slush. Thinsulate insulation traps fiery heat to alleviate frozen feet when Arctic fronts blast through your locale. Plus, the fuzzy textile lining adds a touch of cozy-softness to your winter wear.
Supporting your every step, the boot's OrthoLite EVA footbed provides high levels of comfort for walking long distances. Its injected EVA midsole absorbs impact from treading over rough terrain, while the molded shank support keeps you cruising comfortably over uneven surfaces, should you take these on a winter hike through the woods or mountains. And to keep you from slipping on black ice and slick winter surfaces, the Contagrip sole grips over icy, snowed-over surfaces with its Ice Grip rubber compound. Much like a set of winter tires for your vehicle, Ice Grip rubber compound stays soft and pliable in sub-freezing temperatures for the best grip and stability.

Just what I've been looking for!

I finally came across these boots during one of BC's sales and they're exactly what I've been looking for: shoulder season boots. They're tall enough to keep out snow/slush/mud but not too tall for my preferences, lightly insulated, very comfortable, and most importantly, waterproof. I went through a couple of other waterproof boots (1 leather, 1 nubuck with mesh panels and GoreTex both from another great brand) before these that seeped when I wore traction. I think the snow being held against the boot was just too much for them. I've broken trail with snowshoes in fresh, wet snow twice and shoveled my driveway in these without issue.
They're pretty true to size in reality, although the size chart suggested I wear an 8. I picked 9's because I'm usually an 8.5 in other brands but I wanted to make sure I had enough room for liners and midweight wool socks and they fit perfectly under those conditions. I should've listened to my husband's recommendation to check out Salomon awhile ago!
Truly Awesome Boots! Worth every penny!!

I searched for two months trying to find a winter boot with everything I was looking for. This boot has it all and more...fits like a glove, waterproof, insulated, great arch and ankle support,shank, toe room, smart lacing with lace locks to keep boots exactly as snug as you like, great grip rubber soles, extremely well made and they look great! I was happy that they cover my ankles enough to provide great support. I own two other hiking boots from Solomon with the same smart lacing and, to me, it's the only way to go. I have had my other boots for about four years and use them all year long and they still look like new. These new winter boots arrived today and when I saw them, it was love at first sight and way beyond my expectations. I already wore them today for a 1.5 mile walk and they are so comfortable, they don't even need to be broken in.
Just had our first snow storm here in New England with ice and snow. Boots have great traction in both ice and snow and keep feet warm and dry even in slush and water puddles. They are so comfortable, they feel like I am wearing slippers.
I am a true size 9 and these boots are true to size. I still have room to wear an inner polyester lining sock with a wool sock over top like I like. I was a bit confused regarding the color so I asked about it through the chat service. They were so helpful. The asphalt, black, stone blue color is basically a mostly black boot with dark gray and the only blue is the little V like markings. The fast two day shipping service was awesome too! These are truly the best boots I have ever had.
