Video Post: My New Favourite Winter Boots (Full Test & Review)

Are you looking for winter boots? Check out this video review of the Vasque Lost 40—my new fave footwear!

In This Video Gear Review You Will Discover:

  • What’s in a Name
  • Functions & Features
  • Construction & Fit
  • And More!

When you make the leap into quality outdoor gear, you immediately wonder why you spent all those years wet, cold and uncomfortable… suffering through cold feet, frosty hands and soaked skin.

In short—comfort and adventure are not mutually exclusive. Take winter boots, for example. With warm tootsies, you can stay out all day, strolling through the snow and enjoying that serenity that only comes when the mercury drops below zero (Or below 32, for you Americans.)

You might be able to wait out a nippy nose or even chilly hands, but once your feet freeze—your day is done. That’s why good boots matter.

I recently had the opportunity to test out an awesome new pair of winter boots—the Vasque Lost 40. I’m a big fan of Vasque footwear. I have two pairs of their hikers (lightweight and backpacking) and my wife has a pair too. They’re big on comfort. And, generally, they look pretty cool too.

This continues with the Lost 40. Though designed as a snowshoe/winter hiking boot, I think they look nice enough to roam the streets of Vancouver. In fact, I was just on West 4th with these moccasin-style stompers and I thought I looked pretty cool.

Check out this video review I shot for explore magazine, and see for yourself:

    Very good video David. I have actually sought a better type of footwear to spend the winter here in Canada. Because it’s too cold here… it’s too icy for me that you’re used to the warmth of my country. Thanks for the tips. I’m going to look for that kind of boot here in the area.

    Thanks! I know it gets very cold in many places south of the Canadian border for sure—I bet these boots would be warm at -30 Celsius no problem. The more I wear them, the more I like them!

    Nice review David. I’m from “the south” as you called it and have been looking for a pair of nice warm hiking boots. Thanks for the info.
