What you might not know about the Xero Shoes Alpine
Winter walking, icy trail hiking, and even snowshoeing—these are pretty much the activities that you will be enjoying in a pair of Alpines. Now for the other not-so-obvious stuff about the shoe in question, take a look at the following:
As a winter hiking boot, the Xero Shoes Alpine has to keep your tootsies insulated. To that end, its makers engineered it to be capable of warming the foot at temperatures as low as -32°C or -25°F.
We suggest you try the Alpine’s stock insole for a few hikes. Why? Because like its insulated upper, the boot’s default footbed is also heat-reflective. Trapping in warmth underfoot is its game, yes.
This should not come as a surprise given Xero Shoes’ past and current efforts. What we mean is that the Alpine, just like most (if not all) kicks from this brand, is flexible enough to be rolled into a pack-friendly ball.
5000-mile sole warranty
Yes, the Alpine is part of this exclusive Xero Shoes warranty. If its outsole around the ball or heel gets to less than 1 mm thick, the brand will replace it, albeit not completely free. The replacement will be at 60% off the MSRP of the sole.
Xero Shoes Alpine care guide
Keeping the Alpine in tip-top shape is necessary if you wish to save money for a couple of winters. To that end, do the following:
- After every use, rid the Alpine of dirt and snow using a soft brush. Make sure that its huarache straps have nothing wedged in them, particularly sharp rocks.
- If washing is necessary, remove the footbeds first.
- You may wash the Alpine in warm water with some mild soap. Do it by hand (strictly no machine washing).
- Dry the shoe in the open air, preferably somewhere shaded.
