Who should buy the Vasque Snowburban II UltraDry
The Snowburban II UltraDry is among Vasque’s solutions to the challenges hikers deal with in their winter outings. It is perfect for:
- outdoorsy individuals who want high-cut boots for their snow and day hiking.
- adventurers who like orthotic-friendly footwear.
- hikers who want sufficient insulation for optimal comfort on their cold adventures.
Vasque’s very own rubber outsole enables the Snowburban II UltraDry to grip
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.
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’s Snowburban II UltraDry sports a durable leather upper
The Snowburban II UltraDry’s over-the-ankle upper is made of 1.8-mm leather coated with polyurethane (PU) for enhanced durability. It has a heel counter made of TPU for extra support and a rubber rand for abrasion protection.
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.
