Vasque Snowburban II UltraDry ColdHold

Vasque’s dual-density rubber outsole—the Nordic Rover with ColdHold technology—is what gives wearers surefootedness on icy and snow-covered trails.

Its multi-directional lugs are razor-siped to improve its stickiness over cold, wet surfaces. Its front end has a cupped design, giving the boot additional forefoot protection.

Snowburban II UltraDry’s sturdy underfoot cushioning

This winter hiker gets to protect and cushion the foot from the roughness of the terrain with its molded EVA midsole. It has a considerably sturdy construction to help users maintain their balance on the trail. It comes built with two supportive sub-components: a stabilizer at the heel and a TPU shank around the arch zone.

Providing extra underfoot cushioning is the footgear’s removable dual-density EVA footbed. It has a cupped heel for additional support and perforations at the forefoot for enhanced airflow.

Vasque Snowburban II UltraDry UltraDry waterproofing

The “UltraDry” in its name refers to the Vasque-owned technology that makes this boot sufficiently waterproof. Its 400-gram thermal insulation, on the other hand, is courtesy of 3M’s Thinsulate technology.

A synthetic lace and combination eyelets make up its closure system. A pull loop at the heel and the boot’s rubber heel kick make on and off relatively swift and convenient.
