Tips On How To Choose The Right Winter Boots

When it comes to winter boots, it becomes important to ensure this footwear has the correct technical features to match up to weather conditions that you plan to use them for and the activities you participate in when you wear them. What you will need to trek through cities that have sidewalks were the snow has already been shovelled compared to the type of boots you will need to walk through snow that is 3 feet deep is very different. Take a look at Bear Paw boots.


Dry Feet Means Warm Feet

One of the main reasons that your feet and toes get cold during winter usually has to do with when they get wet, which is caused by inadequate waterproofing or materials that are non-breathable, which causes moisture to remain trapped in your boots. If you are able to find winter boots that stay dry, it is possible to avoid most cold toe and feet issues.

Here is a list of labels that can assist you when it comes to choosing the correct form of protection to match up to your needs:

– A durable deterrent to moisture and water penetration. IMPER-X makes use of sealed seams and water-resistant materials that provide reliable comfort to this footwear.

– The waterproof properties of textiles and/or leather are complemented by a waterproof membrane and/or waterproof sealed-seams that make sure water stays out.

– A Waterproof bootie and the waterproof materials give you the reassurance that you need to go out into all types of weather conditions.


The right amount of insulation is paramount when it comes to making sure your toes stay warm in the coldest of weather conditions. Look out for names such as Thermolite or Thinsulate™ that assist with trapping your own body heat and still allow moisture or sweat to escape which will help to keep your feet and your boots dry.

Comfort Ratings

Comfort ratings are also called temperature ratings, offer you with the guidelines needed when it comes to choosing the winter boots that you need to match up to weather conditions you plan to wear them in. Our boots are all tested at testing facilities that are recognized globally for their thermal ratings. These tests involve using model feet at varying temperatures in climatic chambers. The feet are measured and monitored to establish an average for comfort ratings where the feet will remain at the correct body temperature.

A comfort rating is just a guide. Your circulation, fitness level, and your “resting” body temperature along with with environmental conditions like wind chill all impact on cold-weather protection.

Fit And Sizing

Once you have found the right winter boots, your next step involves finding out your correct size. Your boots should be slightly roomy to accommodate warm and thicker socks, along with a bit of space, so that air can circulate. This additional space also allows your body to retain heat and to let any moisture or sweat evaporate.

Adjustable collars and laces allow for a customized fit that retains warmth and keeps any snow and water out.


The boots that are taller will provide added benefits when it comes to regulating temperature. If you plan to trudge through deep snow, then look out for the boots that come with adjustable collars, which will allow you to pull the boots tightly around your legs.
