But first, let us tell you a bit about how we make our shoes.
The technologies behind men’s winter boots
Here at Columbia, our team of professionals works hard to come up with the ideal design of snow boots men will keep loving. The technologies we use are always improving to give your feet the ultimate comfort and make long lasting equipment for every kind of adventurer.
Waterproof men’s winter boots
Keeping your feet dry should always be the number one priority of any kind of footwear. Columbia uses both Omni Tech and Outdry waterproofing technologies to provide you with the best possible waterproof boots. How does it work? Our shoes feature a waterproof membrane that is guaranteed to keep your feet dry. The best thing? It also gets rid of all the excess sweat and heat. Zero drops in and zero drops out.
There’s something for every man in our waterproof collection. Whether your feet are going to be on the skis or knee-deep in snow, you’ll be dry. This is thanks to a rubber sole and various membranes that keep the water out.
Winter sports, but make it warm
When you tell someone you’re into winter sports, their first question is usually: But aren’t you going to freeze in that weather? The next time you have this conversation, just tell them about Columbia men’s winter boots.
You see, we have developed Omni-Heat Reflective insulation technology. This technology uses dozens of tiny silver dots that utilise your own body temperature to create a layer of insulation. In other words, your own body is going to keep you warm, Columbia shoes are just going to help you keep that warmth.
You haven’t even heard the best part. Here it comes: you can forget all about three pairs of socks or any other heavy additional insulation. Your regular socks combined with our men’s winter boots will be more than enough to insulate your feet and make you forget you’re in sub zero temperatures.
In addition to this, like with most of our thermal insulation technologies, the potential sweat from your feet will not accumulate in the shoes. The specially designed membranes will release the sweat but will not let any snow or wet in. It may sound like magic, but it’s just science.
How to choose the right men’s winter boots
What kind of person are you? Are you the type of person to spend hours outdoor walking on a crisp snow trail, listening to the soft crunch and the wind, admiring the white trees and the mountains surrounding you? Or are you an adrenaline-driven sportsman, anxiously wishing you were on skis or on your board, conquering slopes and steep mountainsides?
Here at Columbia, we don’t discriminate. Every type of active is our type of active, and we’re here to help you with the gear. Based on the type of a winter activity you’re shopping for and your individual style, we hundred percent got you covered when it comes to winter boots.
Depending on your lifestyle, you can find winter boots for men that match your expectations. We have two types of winter boots and snow shoes for men: The Apres ski boots and the utility snow boots:
Men's Apres Ski Boots come in various stylish shapes and colours. They offer high protection against cold and rain or snow. They're designed to provide excellent comfort, heat retention and protection from water. Obviously, we've paid special attention to their looks. You will find that their design will fit nicely with your outfit. Most of them are high or mid-profile.
Men's Utility Boots have a different purpose. Of course, they exist to keep the cold and the wet out during harsh conditions, but they are made to endure work-like or hiking environments. They offer excellent protection for the wearer and are extremely durable. Their high profile guarantees excellent and long-term protection from the cold: You can hike for a day in the snow and you will remain dry and warm.
Both of these winter shoes offer waterproof membranes (Omni-Tech™) that will also ensure breathability. Of course, we have included a special Techlite+™ midsole that provides responsive cushioning and stability, without sacrificing comfort! It will make your winter hikes look like walking on a cloud!
Last but not least, our Adapt Trax™️ outsole offers incredible grip on wet and dry terrain. It will ensure traction and comfort while hiking.
With a wide variety of choices, it’s a breeze to pick out winter boots men will keep wearing. Classic never goes out of fashion.
How to use the filtering options to choose among the best benefits of your winter boots?
A good pair of walking winter boots for men should have these technical features: it should be warm and waterproof. Here’s a sum up of the tricks we have in store to keep your feet warm:
Up to 200 grams of thermal insulation. It’s basically like a fleece, in your winter boots!
An Omni-Heat™ Infinity reflective lining: Every bit of warmth your body produces, we keep. None goes out thanks to our thermal reflective layer.
A leather outer shell around your feet: It breaks the wind instantly and does not transfer the cold inside.
Here’s how we’ve designed these waterproofness levels:
Rain:The boot has a light waterproof protection on the upper part, materialized by a surface waterproof textile and construction.
Downpour:The boot has a good waterproof protection on the upper part, thanks to TPU laminated mesh surrounding a textile waterproof bootie construction.
Deluge:These winter shoes are 100% waterproof. We use a waterproof‑breathable Outdry™ construction.
Men's winter boots and snow shoes can be worn while hiking outside in a forest or ski resort. But it can also be your ally when walking in the streets! We have many looks and colours available to fit all cases. Browse through our winter boots and shop for the style that fits best.
To order the men's snow shoe or winter boot size that will fit perfectly, please keep this in mind: Wear thin but warm socks. Wearing thick and cheap socks will compress your feet in the shoes and reduce blood flow. You should prefer a thin and warm pair of socks, made of wool.
To make your snow shoes last longer, whether they’re fleece lined, rubber, or leather, clean them and take care of them and they will serve you well for a long time.
