To protect your feet during the long Quebec winter, choosing a good pair of boots is required. Like the head and hands, the feet are part of the ends not to neglect the risk of ending up with frozen feet.
To make the best choice possible, here are five key questions to ask yourself before you shop your winter boots:
For the city or the outdoors?
If you plan to be active in the snow, go for high boots, waterproof with minimal breathability. By cons, if you plan to use it to walk into town, take the subway or go to a mall, choose a pair of low boots 6 inch for comfort and lightness. If it is waterproof, it will protect you from the slush often found in urban areas.
For activities that involve less movement such as snowmobiling, winter camping, for example, must focus rather high boots that are waterproof with a thick felt and have a good heat coefficient. And more heat, wear them with a pair of ski socks. There are also boots with a rubber protection on the outside that are perfect for your snowshoeing.
Zipper or lace closures?
The zippers provide a better seal over the laces. In addition, the boots fuck faster and more suitable for those who have big calves. However, a pair of boots with laces better support the ankle.
Do your feet sweat a lot ?
A boot that is too breathing will give you cold feet in the long run because of the moisture that accumulates around the foot. If you tend to breathe feet, opt for a pair of boots with removable insole that can dry in wet conditions to prevent odors. And remember that without a good pair of socks, a good pair of boots loses all effectiveness. Avoid at all costs low cotton which easily take water. Rather prefer low composed of synthetic materials with a minimum of 10% Merino wool which have the advantage of wicking easier.
Water resistant boots or not?
If you are looking for a pair of plus size snow boots on Hoticle for your indoor and outdoor activities every day, opt for those that are water resistant. As for waterproof boots, they are ideal if you spend much time outdoors in the snow.
Boots with or without studs?
Studded boots offer better traction on snow and ice, so you can walk without fear. Those with crampons folding are convenient for turning rings a second time, a uniform sole is obtained which will not damage floors.
Be aware that asking the right questions, you’re more likely to be satisfied with your choices end up with a pair of boots that will not do the trick. And above all know that the price a boot does not guarantee its quality.
And you, are you satisfied with your last purchase of boots?
