Snowburban UltraDry™

Features: Insulated | Waterproof

$159.99 USD MSRP

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.

Here’s a boot ready for frigid temps, but with the performance, fit, and feel of an alpine rig. We doubled up on insulation, added a fleece collar lining, and outfitted the sole with our ColdHold Compound. Think of the Snowburban as one of our capable deft mountain boots, just pumped up for your coldest days. Waterproof and exceptionally warm, forget about your feet when you pull them on. As for your hands and the tip of your nose, those are other matters entirely…

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great boot - narrower toe box Even at a 12W boot size, the toe box crowded my toes to the point of a pinch blister under the pinky toe on a 10 day 65 mile breakin trip -- no weight on the back either. The boots are well suited to cool and cold weather hiking, but summer hiking they do not breathe as well as hoped, leaving very damp feet. When using these I will plan to bring at least one more pair of socks. The metal lace cleats are well constructed, but create high wear on laces. Be prepared - bring a spare set of laces with you, or start your trek with new laces. The 'grippiness' of the cleats is much appreciated - the boots do not require adjusting during the day and the laces do not slip. But they do tear up laces! Outstanding durability and comfort otherwise - after 65 miles, they show no wear other than normal scuffing. I can easily see these going for years and years -- if they fit you properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Most Comfortable Winter Hiking Boot I got the Snowburban ultra dry's for an expedition to Iceland, my idea was that I wanted to fit a strap on crampon to a flexible lightweight boot because I was so tired of years of trekking around in heavy plastic double boot. It worked great, the crampon must be very flexible but your legs stay light & you can push for longer days with a lighter boot. What I didn't realize at the time was how comfortable they would be, they ended up being my primary snowshoeing boot & hanging around the yard shoveling boot. The most comfortable winter boot I have ever worn. May 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Boot I got these Vasque boots for my birthday after loving a previously used all-leather pair. I could not be happier. The fit, style, and comfort of the St. Elias are all top notch, and I would recommend this boot to anyone. June 13, 2014
