Best Camping Footwear For Snowy Weather

After the recent extreme weather we've been experiencing in the UK, you may be feeling less inclined to spend a lot of time enjoying the outdoors. But for those who love winter weather, as well as for those who have to spend time out in the elements whatever the conditions, here is a brief discussion of some of the best camping footwear for snowy weather:

Danner Explorer 650

These snow boots from the Oregon brand are popular with hikers. They are comfy from the start, requiring no breaking in and have a well-cushioned sole. They are lightweight, grip well on snow and ice and can be bought by men or women. This footwear became famous as the brand worn by Cheryl Strayed, author of 'Wild', which was made into a film with Reese Witherspoon.

Merrell Cabra Glacial Ice

Merrell does a good line in winter boots and there are several good examples to choose from. The Glacial ice range, for men and women, offer excellent grip on ice and snow. There is air cushioning in the sole to help with stability if you are walking on churned up ice and snow, and these are also a waterproof and warm winter boot option.

Hanwag Anvik/ Aotea GTX

Hanwag is a German brand that makes technical and supremely reliable winter boots. The Anvik, and women's equivalent Aotea, are comfy, warm and waterproof, excellent when out on a hike and when back home.

Sorel Cheyanne/ Premium LTR

Sorel's Cheyenne boots, and the similar Premium LTR for women, are also solid and dependable boots for use in snowy conditions. With their distinctive black rubber base and street-style upper, these boots will keep your feet warm and dry when the conditions are pretty extreme and the soles have great grip on snow and ice.

Arc'teryx Bora 2

These are serious snow boots for serious winter hikers, perfect for reaching those more remote camping locations and enjoying adventure in the great outdoors in winter. The boots are lightweight yet feel robust too, and you'll have plenty of traction on slippery surfaces. Waterproof yet breathable enough to stop your feet becoming uncomfortable, these are a good option for those walking longer distances in snowy and icy conditions.
