Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waterproof but Bulky I was looking for a boot that would allow me to hike in winter weather around the North East U.S. I tried these boots out on a hike up to Hunter Mountain in the Catskills. I was able to step through puddles with no problem and they kept my feet nice and warm. Surprisingly good traction but not sure how well they would do on icy terrain. I liked these boots but they were a bit bulky for my taste. They would be great as a winter boot to wear around when shoveling snow or a light hike. Probably wouldn't recommend them for a long hike in snowy/icy/rocky terrain. Overall, comfortable boot and well made but just didn't cut it for what I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful boots! I live in Minnesota and spend a lot of time outside walking and snowshoeing. I had worn holes in my last pair of winter hiking boots so I gave these a try, being unfamiliar with the Vasque brand. But they looked beefy and had 400g of Thinsulate, which I wanted. These are wonderful boots. They are incredibly comfortable right out of the box. I have walked in them and snowshoed in them and there is nothing about them that I don't like. I had been afraid that the taller height of the boot would be restrictive, but that is not the case at all. They are flexible and soft around the collar and the extra height actually feels good because it gives support when snowshoeing on hills and uneven ground.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Snowboot When first trying these on I found the tall ankle to be a little weird (but strangely comfortable). I tried on ever pair of women's snowboots at REI, and found these to be the most comfortable, so I bought them anyway. I am so glad I did. I have used these around town, on winter hikes, and on winter snowshoe trips - they're a very versatile boot! They're really warm and comfortable, and my feet have not gotten wet walking through snow and wet trails. They're also very grippy - no slipping around in these boots unless you're walking on sheet ice. I would highly recommend them as a winter boot. Note: I won't try using them as rain boots - they're waterproof, but not really designed for that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm & grippy versatile boot These boots are bulkier than I expected (I was envisioning more of a hiking boot) but I needed a boot that was versatile... something to keep me warm standing in the cold, comfortable enough to walk/snowshoe for miles, grippy enough that I can walk confidently on our snowpacked road. These are really great... super warm and comfy (I did an an insole to compensate for lack of arch support) and surprisingly grippy. The last pair of snow boots I bought were like ice skates on our road... I need yaktrax if I don't want to end up on my rear when it's hardpacked, but these dig right in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable boots I'm a beginner hiker in winter conditions. With the help of my more experienced daughter, I tried these on and bought them, on sale. Used them for winter hikes (with microspikes) one weekend in the Adirondacks. VERY comfortable. I did start to get a blister on my left foot after a continuous uphill climb but, compared to another pair I had tried, I like how flexible and not-rigid they are. I walked around in them almost all weekend. My feet were NEVER cold at all. And I just like the looks of them, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable boots ever I was pretty skeptical about these boots. The other reviews just sounded too good to be true. They were pretty comfortable the first time I put them on, and I began to realize they were on to something. I have worn them to work and around town on snow days, and received many compliments. They are cute and functional. Up on the mountain with the family for tubing and light hiking, they kept my feel warm and dry. I love that when I wear these boots, I forget that I am wearing them. They are as comfortable as my favorite tennis shoes and hikers. I have wide feet and need extra support for my arches, and I cant say that these provide exceptional support, but they certainly do not aggravate any of my potential foot issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tundra Boot I purchased this boot for my December honeymoon in Iceland. I have other winter boots, but not one with the high rating of insulation. My biggest worry about traveling to Iceland, was my feet would freeze. I'm glad to say they did not! My feet were the warmest part of my body. I paired this boot with the lightweight smartwool sock by REI for everyday wearing, and changed to the medium weight smartwool sock while we searched for the Northern Lights by foot. For a winter boot, they are very comfortable, even with the high ankle top. I had no problem walking along the streets of Reykjavik - some with ice and some with no ice. I had no problem with slipping on ice, unless I was going to fast. But their grip did impress me. I wore these every day for 7 days in the worst winter conditions I can think of, and they out-performed everything I thought a boot could do. I highly recommend this product. If these boots survived Iceland, they will survive anywhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst winter boots! I bought these thinking they would keep my feet warm and dry in the snow. That was NOT the case. I wore them today for the first time in our first real snow of the season. It was a wet 6 inches and I was out for about an hour walking my dogs. They leaked around the bottom. My feet are wet. They are another example of how women's boots lack any real function. I am an avid snowshoer and winter hiker. I will NOT be taking these boots in to the backcountry. They are junk. I gave it 1 star only because there was no option for no stars.

Tried these in 8.5 - I wear size 8-8.5 boots. Too tight; I sent them back. Then tried Keen polar - my other Keen boots fit great (size 8.5). I ordered Keens in size 9 as reviews said go up a size. Arrived today: too tight!. Should I try Vasque, size 9?

Asked by: Gsullivan
Yes, if 8.5 was too tight for you we recommend trying a half size up.

I will be traveling to Fairbanks, Alaska in the middle of winter (January), where the weather will be VERY snowy and VERY cold. Lots of hiking and walking in 17 degrees below zero-- are these boots going to be enough? Are they *fully* waterproof? Thanks!

Asked by: jessixa
This boot is a great choice and should meet your needs. The boot is very heavily insulated (400 grams) and completely waterproof thanks to the UltraDry waterproof/breathable membrane.
