The Northwave Himalayas do exactly what you’d hope: they keep your feet dry and warm in the worst of conditions. The question you have to ask yourself is do you ride enough in such conditions to justify the high price?
The Himalaya are a pricy boot, but they are tasked with an important job – keeping riders’ toes warm and plump, instead of cold and stiff. They are comfortable, easy to use, and will probably last several seasons. For those looking for a cold weather mountain bike shoe, the Northwaves are an easy pick.
Overall, Northwave’s Himalaya boots seem an excellent choice for riding in frigid temps. Time will tell how well they hold up to miles of abuse, but design details give the impression they will last through plenty of Colorado winter seasons.
