The right footwear during winter is not only a matter of comfort, it can be a relevant issue when it comes to maintaining safety in the snow. Not all brands of men's snow boots are equal in terms of quality and performance; some brands clearly rate higher than others when it comes to providing warmth, durability and value.


Consumer Search, an online consumer product review and information source, selected Zamberlan as Best Reviewed for 2010 based on their reviews of styles, such as the Zamberlan 760 Steep GT. Reviewers liked Zamberlan's boots for their waterproof, yet breathable material and the increased support given to the feet, particularly when worn while hiking or backpacking. Another added plus noted by reviewers included the excellent traction of the sole as well as the comfort of the Zamberlan boot, which they deemed relatively light in weight.


Reviewers at "Backpacker Magazine," a publication devoted to hiking, backpacking and related gear, selected L.L.Bean as Best Value for men's snow boots in its Editors' Choice Awards for 2010 based on reviews of styles such as the Trail Model Hiker II TEK2.5. Reviewers noted the L.L.Bean brand's waterproof qualities and ability to provide support and traction without sacrificing comfort. Additional benefits noted included ample padding and warmth when compared to other boots of similar design.


Contributors at "Backpacker Magazine" were also pleased with the Kamik brand, naming it as Best Bargain Backpacker in its Fall Gear Guide for 2009 based on reviews of styles such as the Kamik Snowpass Snowshoe Boot. Reviewers noted the brand's ability to keep the feet warm when battling elements such as slush, ice and snow. High marks were given based on the brand's protective design, which provides exceptional arch support when hiking or backpacking through rugged terrain and protection from external dangers such as jagged or protruding rocks.


3Luxe, an online consumer product research and information source, named Timberland as one of their picks for Best Snow Boots in its review of gear for 2010, based on styles such as the Timberland Canard Wapack Black. The brand received high marks for its ability to keep the feet dry and comfortable without adding excessive bulk. Reviewers also liked the Timberland brand's abrasion-resistant, yet lightweight design, durability and guarantee of quality on all of its products.
