I really have to recommend this winter boot. The minimum temperature I have had to “survive” was around -25°C. My feet have been kept really warm by this boot.
Buy these. The build quality, the style, the First World manufacturing all make this an easy decision.
If you spend time in real winter weather, you need real snow pack boots.
1. Real winter means months-long stretches of below freezing weather with accumulating snow on the ground.
2. Real snow pack boots means:
a. durable, water-proof bottoms so you can get real work done in them from fall to spring
b. at least calf-height, also water resistant uppers, again, so you can get real work done, without snow getting into the boot, and
c. sized to accommodate thick, wicking liners and thick socks, so your feet stay warm but sweat-free.
For decades the go-to recommendation was the Sorel Caribou. Unfortunately they went bankrupt in 2000 and Columbia bought them. Manufacturing was moved to China and quality was devalued. This pair of Kamik Pearson replaced a circa-2001 pair of Caribou of which the soles finally gave out and allowed snow to work its way in, which would invariably melt and make my foot cold and wet. Knowing that the legacy of Sorel is not what it once was I decided I would break brand loyalty and shop around.
I took a chance on these Kamik-brand boots based on the good reviews here and the convincing story of their history and ethics on their website. It didn’t hurt that these were on sale at a significant end-of-season discount.
Let me bring the hype: this is the new go-to snow pack boot.
The build quality is ridiculous.
I bought these after reading a number of negative reviews on Amazon about the most popular brand (which is made in China). These are made in Canada. My only complaint is that based on an Amazon comment I ordered a larger size 10. They turned out to be too large and I returned them for a smaller size 9 which fits perfectly. Another feature of these boots is that removing them is a breeze compared to the popular brand boots. The construction looks good, however, I have not worn them yet.I intend to use them as both after ski boots, and while snow blowing my long driveway. I may comment again if these boots don’t perform as expected.
Based on feedback on other sites, I ordered these boots a size large. They fit correctly. Haven’t had a chance to wear them in cold weather yet. The workmanship looks very very good.
There seemed to be a lot of sizing issues in several reviews that I read about these boots and the imported versions. After receiving the boots I would advise to order what you normally would in a boot. They run large, I wear size 12 and ordered a 13, but found that the 13 was way too big. I sent them back and ordered the size 12 which was perfect ~ you could still wear thick socks and it would be fine. The red maple leaf on the back is a nice touch, they are very warm, and appear to be well built. I felt that for the price, getting a boot made in Canada, they are an exceptional value.
I’ve owned these boots for less than two seasons…I bought them in the late fall of 2012.
They are very warm, which is great. They’re also pretty roomy, which wasn’t unexpected–I added an extra footbed to help take up the extra room.
However, their durability is awful. These replaced a pair of Sorels that I had had for 20 years…and in less than 18 months, they are in worse shape. The liners are wearing out in patches and the soles are wearing through. I can’t recommend these boots–for the price, I’d be ok if they’d last five seasons. But less than two? I’m not ok with that.
Honestly, if you’re spending this much on boots, I’d say get something with a lifetime warranty…so that if they give out in just a few seasons, you can get them replaced. but don’t buy these…they really don’t last.
I can’t recommend these enough. I live in Minnesota and was out in 30 below temps in snow all day and these performed great. I’m a size 11 so I ordered a 12 and they fit perfect. I’m so glad I got these over a certain brand that is now made in China and is way more expensive. Go Canada!
Boot is very warm in deep snow for an extended period of time. My only issue is that I have narrow feet. I ordered smaller than I normally wear and the boot is fine in length but way wide…even with heavy smart wool socks. Still, I would rather have my foot slide around a little and be warm! Get the Canadian built version. Worth the extra coin.
