Vans takes their shoewear to the next level by bringing in GORE-TEX technology to make an all purpose outdoor boot designed for colder weather. The iconic sk8-hi silhouette gives the boot a sneaker look, but the rubber reinforced outer allows for keeping out the elements. I have loved every shoe I’ve purchased from vans, especially their higher end items, and these are no exception. While wearing them in 12 degree, snowy weather, my feet remained dry and warm throughout the whole day. The comfort on these are amazing as well, the inner sole and support given never makes your feet sore.

The only complaint I can really give is that the inner sole seemed to slide around sometimes, but this can be easily fixed with either some glue or getting a new insole. I highly recommend trying these out.
