      Comments about VASQUE Men's Snowblime UltraDry Winter Hiking Boots:

      I've got two NH day trips (Kinsman and Lafayette in the Whites) in snow conditions wearing these with snoshoes and spikes. They were a very good deal on sale, are waterproof so far (Gore Tex can break down,) they have a nice rubber surround about an inch up the sides and toe (hopefully it won't start to peel loose too soon.) They are a nice, traditional design leather boot for spikes or snow shoes.

      Fit is particular to a person, I would have bought wides but they were not offered. I'd say these are a bit wide in the akle compared to the footbox, proportionally, as evidenced by how they lace up. I have felt the rivets from the lacing eyelets under snow shoe straps after a number of hours, not unusual, this can be addressed with mole foam if it's a problem.

      They have a good amount of fore/aft akle freedom, and are not a super rigid high-tongued solid ankle-bracetype boot for 50 lb packs on rocks. The soles are stiff and in part a sort of gum rubber that might not be as good as Vibram for traction in dry and wet on clear rock, but they aren't for that anyway, they are for snow. Good heelside loop for pulling on, and little metal gaitor loop on front are nice features. Notice there are not a lot of choices in this category.

      Good purchase, they work!

        Comments about VASQUE Men's Snowblime UltraDry Winter Hiking Boots:

        I have worn these boots on several hikes in the whites this winter both snowshoeing and with micro spikes and they performed very well.Temps ranging from 0 to 30 degrees and no cold feet.MY only complaint was getting the laces to stay tight.I received a tip from EMS on tying the laces and on my last hike of Mt. Cube It did make a difference.

            Comments about VASQUE Men's Snowblime UltraDry Winter Hiking Boots:

            I have to say that in the the three or so weeks I've had these boots, I love them and am looking forward to many years of use! They are warm and extremely comfortable and seem to be completely waterproof as advertised. They were comfortable straight out of the box.

            I bought the Snowblimes largely for casual wear to keep my feet warm here in New England winters while about town, and while walking my dog, but I can totally see this boot being a very good winter hiking boot probably up to moderate loads. I'll probably pick up another pair for that purpose sometime soon.

            The one detraction - other than too short shoelaces that prevent doing a double knot - is that the soles can be slick as snot on ice, so some form of ice cleats would be needed in such conditions. Other than that, the soles offer excellent traction in other conditions and clear nicely of snow and mud as one walks.

            I highly recommend these boots!

                Comments about VASQUE Men's Snowblime UltraDry Winter Hiking Boots:

                I bought these boots because the Vasque brand is known for great boots, however, these boots are not made well at all.

                I spent time upstate New York and in Vermont during the extreme cold weather and my feet were always cold and wet (even when wearing Grade A merino wool socks—I waterproofed the suede out of the box and still they failed).

                Additionally, these boots have some of the worst traction I have ever experienced. They're terrible equally in the rain and snow—I felt as if I was walking on ice—no traction at all.

                If anything, these boots would be great for dry, warm weather hiking, that's about it.

                  Only used them twice so far, but these babies are super light. Ankle support isn't too stiff. Break in period seemed non-existent. Wind chills were -10 and my feet were toastie warm for hours out snowshoeing. As added protection, I sno-sealed them prior to using to ensure dry feet.
