The Vasque Women's Pow Pow II UltraDry insulated boot is ready for cold weather and heavy snows. Vasque uses their UltraDry waterproofing system, a leather and textile upper, and Thinsulate insulation to keep your feet warm and dry for a full day of snowshoeing, winter hiking, or running errands around town.
The Vasque Women's’ Pow Pow II UltraDry Insulated Boots are ready for cold temperatures and heavy snows with their UltraDry waterproofing and their 400 grams of thinsulate insulation. That thinsulate is synthetic insulation, so it makes it really lightweight, but very warm for its weight. So these boots do come up a little bit higher. They provide a lot of clearance in heavy snows. So you can definitely wear these just on their own or with gators. But they do come up higher there on your leg. And the outer material here is a mixture of suede and textiles, so that suede throughout the boot is going to give you a lot of durability, but the textiles up here keeps the weight down and gives you a really comfortable boot, so you can see kind of that quilted pattern here through the top. It gives it a nice look and the quilted pattern also goes up through the tongue, so it is really comfortable over top of your foot in that area that you really need to cinch down those laces, so really comfortable inside the boot as well.
You have got mostly fabric eyelets here. Up at the top you have got two metal eyelets, just to really cinch down those laces at the top, so that makes it really comfortable as well. They are flexible boots, so you don’t have that metal hardware there throughout the boot.
They are completely waterproof, so in puddles and in snow they are definitely going to keep your feet dry. And the you do have kind of a faux fur here at the top. That just gives it a nice cozy feeling right there at the top of your socks. So really comfortable boot in general and nice and warm.
Some of the extra features here. You do have a little bit of a lip here on the back. And if you have got any traction on the outside of your shoe, you can attach it there and it stays really nicely, so even something like snow shoes or something like that, you have got that extra little bit of a lip there on the back.
Moving to the midsole you do have an EVA foam midsole. There is a TPU shank in there to give it a little bit more stability. But that EVA foam is going to insulate you from cold ground and it is also going to provide a lot of cushioning, so really comfortable throughout. And then there on the bottom you have got nice lugs for snow and ice. The compound used for the outsole here is specifically for like ice and snow and really cold temperatures. It is called cold hold compound. And it is just going to hold up really well in those very, very cold conditions. It is not going to freeze up on you, which is really nice. So it is those small attentions to detail that make these boots really great for a multitude of activities, from anywhere from walking around downtown to hiking. You can definitely wear these boots in a variety of conditions.
They are the Vasque Women’s Pow Pow II UltraDry Insulated Boots.
