Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Solid Boot I have been using these boots for work and they keep my feet dry and well insulated. I do plenty of work outside and often have my feet submerged in water but they stay dry in these boots so long as I do not go too deep. They are comfortable and did not require any real break-in time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Undoubtedly Warm Have had and used in 10F on good length night hikes and is very warm, no cold spots. Tread handled sidewalk ice and 6 inch snow well. More extreme use not yet tried. I have a VERY narrow foot and these do fit but I am messing with socks and setup still. Recommend Strongly pairing with REI silk liners. Try them on, break in has made shaft ankle loosen up a bit FYI. But these are not a soft glove around your foot. But a good boot if they fit you I think.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied Thru hiking the AT and these boots are my starting footwear while the temps are cold. Have used on trails with little ice or snow, but lots of frigid low water crossings. I am happier with my dry warm feet than in my trail runners with wet socks. Very comfortable in a half size above street shoes. I like that the tongue and ankle is not overpadded. Comfortable, not bulky. I would purchase these boots again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super dry I bought these for a snow shoeing trip. My snow shoes ended up falling off in powdery snow and my foot stayed completely dry even lodged in the snow. Also very comfortable and not nearly as heavy as my sorells. Also I'm a female and have slightly wider feet so these were perfect fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wet heels Initially these boots felt fairly tight on the top/side area of my foot and crunched my toes more than expected while walking on a 30 degree slope (my roof). I ordered my normal size of 9.5 I took them for a 3 mile walk in the rain to start the break-in process, thinking this might help the above issues. While walking, I purposefully walked in the gutter and though puddles. My feet felt dry and warm, however when I took off the boots, the heels of both feet were wet! I'm glad my survival did not depend on these boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable boot! This is a great boot right out of the box. The first time I put it on there was instant comfort, no having to break them in. Waterproof is good too! They size kind of small FYI.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One mission- over. I love Vask- but these were a disapointment- when I got home with them- one of the lace bindings had already been ripped out- replaced the boots- then on to Mission One. A week in Telluride, CO- in and out of HELOS and hiking the summits- they didn't make it - the sides frayed, and stitches came out from along the welt to the sole. I wanted to love them. Sadly, they couldn't hack it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boot so far Just got this boot last week and put it on and did a moderate 8 mile wet hike with 50 degree temps . The boots were very comfortable out of the box and no blisters with zero breakin period. My feet stayed dry with wet trails. I cannot give 5 stars because I haven't tested these for why I mainly purchased them, winter hiking.

Questions & Answers

Sizing question, I typically wear a men's 11 shoe with a medium width . Do these boots run small or large? .

Asked by: Gravey
I am 10.5-sometimes wide. I needed these 11.5 wide for decent fit. 10.5 way too small. The sizeing might not “consider” the insulation.

Can the recommended wearing temperature for these boots be provided?

Asked by: traggatmot
These boots have 200 grams of insulation, but they do not have a temperature rating. Many boots do not have temperature ratings because warmth depends on so many different variables including activity level, metabolism, perspiration as well as what socks you have chosen to wear with them.

Was the Coldspark designed to replace the discontinued Snow Junkie model?

Asked by: Hammer
​Yes, the Coldspark is the newer model of the Snow Junkie. The ColdSpark uses a thicker leather upper and the midsole is a molded EVA, where the Snow Junkie had a composite shank with an instep plate. Also, the ColdSpark's outsole has been updated to the Monolith rubber, but the fit and feel should be the same.
