Satisfied with the product

Good pair of shoes. Tested for a hike on snow, quite satisfied. I ended up with wet socks but because I walked in 60cm of snow so the snow came in on top, and my feet were wet after 3 hours of walking. So I think that in normal conditions it is more than perfect.

Amazing boots! They are ideal for keeping your feet warm.

Warm and comfortable but not durable

I used these boots for two winter seasons using them mainly with snowshoes. The boots immediately proved to be comfortable, although a little stiff, and very warm. I have never had cold feet and no water has ever entered even after long excursions with my feet sinking into the snow. Unfortunately, after only two seasons they opened where the foot bends to take the step, so now the snow gets in and they are unusable. I was hoping they would last a little longer even though it's a cheap product. I don't think I would buy them again.

very warm

I tried out a lot of shoes in the store. I actually wanted to buy these shoes with black color, but the width of the shoes was too narrow, even though the model is the same. These shoes are really warm and I can highly recommend them.

Warm but not durable

I really liked these boots but they ended up cracking on the front part even though they are still very beautiful so I come with wet feet. Disappointed... Even if it's been 3 years it seems to me you expect more longevity as boots I walk in the snow...

Perfect shoes for cold feet

I recommend

Lots of difference between the 39 and the 40, especially in width. I already had a pair, very durable, perfect for snowshoe hiking even with very wet snow, so I bought the same model

Additional Product Information


Upper of: 60.0% Polyurethane, 40.0% Polyester ; Outer sole of: 60.0% Synthetic Rubber, 40.0% Ethylene Vinyl Acetate ; Lining and sock of: 82.0% Polyester, 18.0% Polyurethane

These waterproof and warm shoes will provide you with very good hold for snowshoeing. the snowcontact sole

We have selected warm and insulating materials for this shoe, providing good protection against snow and cold. We have tested it in the laboratory and in the field with our user representatives. We checked the temperature up to which it stays comfortable when you're stationary and when you're walking, as this varies a lot: -12°c in static mode and -21°C on the move. We also took into account how temperature is felt differently by men and women.

How do your boots protect you from outdoor conditions?

Your shoes have been designed with a membrane to ensure optimal water-resistance. A membrane is a very fine component (between 5 and 25 micrometres) affixed to the inside of a fabric that will prevent water from entering while letting moisture escape. While you stay warm in your shoes, your feet will also stay dry. The sole insulates from the cold coming from contact with snow.

Breathable boots for optimal thermal comfort

Thermal comfort is a balance between the warmth of the boots and its ability to let the foot breathe. Too much heat or not enough breathability means that damp accumulates and cold can set in. We have designed your shoes with your regular and at times intense activity in mind, with a membrane which prevents water ingress and lets damp out.

How can i be sure that my boots are 100% waterproof?

We made sure that your shoes are waterproof by conducting laboratory tests to simulate walking with the boots half submerged in water. We also conducted field tests to measure wear and ageing. During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2,000 flexes (approx. 4 km walk), 4,000 flexes (approx. 8 km walk) and 8,000 flexes (approx. 16 km walk). This model of shoe has been tested with up to 8,000 flexes, which is equivalent to 16km of walking.

What is the difference between traction and grip?

The traction of the boots depends on the number and shape of the studs. The grip is dependent on the materials of the sole and the tread pattern, like the tyres of your car. Traction optimises propulsion, prevents the boot from slipping backwards when going uphill and stabilises the boot. Grip prevents the boot from slipping and skidding on smooth ground or in demanding conditions (rain, snow, ice) by giving the sole grip.

How does the snowcontact technology used on the boot sole help me?

The SNOWCONTACT soles are designed using a specific component and stud pattern (5 mm) to provide the best possible grip and traction. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow. When walking on ice, the only way to ensure optimum safety is to add anti-slip grips to your boots.

Why is it important to be well supported in a hiking shoe?

The support provided by your shoe is essential for your comfort when walking. Indeed, good support optimises your steps on hilly terrain (ascent and descent), prevents your foot from sliding in the shoe and reduces the occurrence of blisters. There is less loss in the transmission of your energy to the shoe and therefore less fatigue. This is especially important when you are snowshoeing.

Are your shoes suitable for snowshoeing?

We designed these shoes for hiking on snow, with or without snowshoes. The upper of the shoe (mid-height type) combined with gaiters (external or integrated in the trousers), provides good protection against snow getting in. Waterproof and warm, their support and rigidity are more suitable for walking with snowshoes.

Will your boots withstand regular use over the long-term?

Our engineers conduct laboratory tests to ensure that the product fully complies with your satisfaction in use. Our verifications include the following elements: tearing eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion resistance of outsole and upper components, accelerated ageing.
