Snow can quickly turn into black ice. But you won’t know it until you take a dinger, land on your back and spend the next few days laid up in your bed. Odds all you’ll miss out on all the fun the winter has to offer, and then you’ll be wishing that you had a pair of these Korkers SnowJack Boots.
They cost a mere $150, which ain’t too shabby when you consider just how much ass kicking they can do. First off, they’re made from fully waterproofed leather. That means they’ll keep your feet dry as a bone and will last the test of time – however, we have to wonder about breathability. Second, these boots are stuffed with 400g of Thinsulate insulation, allowing you to dredge through snow, ice, water in temperatures down to -30 F. Lastly, the soles of are “hot swappable”, allowing you to quickly switch from their SnowTrac Winter Rubber Lug outsole to IceTrac Studded Rubber Lug with carbide studs, great for icey roads, driveways and heck, even ice skating rinks.
