The Alpine overall is an amazing boot for the cold. – Jason N.

Enjoy that crisp winter weather in the Alpine – your fully-waterproof, lightweight, minimalist snow boot

Now you don’t need to sacrifice comfort and natural movement when the temperature starts to fall and snow is in the air (and on the ground).

Waterproof, cozy, and warm!

The Alpine keeps the wet out with a fully seam-sealed inner bootie and a waterproof membrane in the boot’s upper. 

The insulated polyester fleece lining keeps those piggies nice and warm. And a heat-reflective insole adds to the winter-friendly comfort. And, yes, you can remove the insole for an even more “barefoot” feeling. 
 
The Alpine has 200g of insulation so they should keep your feet warm no matter where your adventures take you.
 
Lightweight and grippy

A men’s 9 weighs just 14.5 ounces each, a luggy tread gives you sure-footed traction, and a flexible, non-elevated (zero-drop) sole lets your foot move naturally.

Plus, the Alpine is made from 100% vegan-friendly materials.

Whether you wear the Alpine for a romp in the snow or after you slip off your ski boots, remember…

Life-changing comfort and superior performance come from using your feet naturally.

That’s what Xero Shoes let you do.
 

Natural Fit. Natural Motion. Natural Feel.

Plus Xero Shoes are backed with a 5,000-mile sole warranty.

Alpine Specs

  • 5.5mm FeelTrue® rubber sole

Caring for your Alpines

To clean your Alpines, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry. We do not recommend putting the Alpine in the washing machine or dryer.

The answer is YES! The Alpine is a great boot to pair with snowshoes, especially with the zero-drop, FeelTrue® rubber soles for a low center of gravity. Most snowshoes secure the boots with straps that go over the toes, instep, and around the heel, and will work just fine with the Alpine. And with our 200g insulation, rated to -25°/-32°C, and the fully seam-sealed, water-resistant inner bootie, your feet should stay warm and toasty while you’re hiking!

Unlike, say, sleeping bags, there’s no accurate temperature rating system for shoes. How a shoe handles the cold (or, rather, how a person handles the cold in a shoe) depends on factors beyond air temperature, including: ground temperature, humidity, blood circulation in your feet, foot mobility (the more you move, the warmer you might feel) and, of course, the socks you’re wearing (or not wearing, as the case may be).

The short answer is, the Alpine has 200g insulation, rated to -25°/-32°C.

With the seam sealed bootie, heat-reflecting insole, insulated synthetic lining, and lugged sole, we’re giving you a cozy natural movement option for staying warm in the cold.

We do! We’ve sold Xero Shoes to people in more than 85 countries around the world.
We use the US Postal service to send our shipments. The cost to ship will depend on the weight of the package and the delivery speed you select; several options will be provided at checkout.

All domestic shipments come with tracking. Limited tracking is available for some first class international shipments depending on the country, and full tracking is available with all Priority Express and Express International shipments.

Though almost all of our international orders arrive without incident, we strongly advise you to select Priority Express International or Express International if you live in a country with a less reliable postal service, including (but not limited to) India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, and Indonesia. We cannot guarantee delivery of packages shipped using First Class International.

International delivery can take anywhere from 3 days to 8 weeks depending on how long your order spends in customs at the border.

Please note that some countries do require the payment of import duties for international shipments above a certain value. We advise you to know the import regulations of your country and understand that you will be responsible for payment of any duties and fees imposed by your government at the border.

All packages will be marked as merchandise; as a commercial shipper, we are not able to mark a package as a gift (if you’re giving Xero Shoes as a gift, that’s not the same as us sending a gift).
Also, check our Stores page. There may be a Xero Shoes dealer closer to you.

After you purchase a gift certificate, you’ll be able to enter an email address for the recipient.

You could email it to yourself and forward it at a later time if you like.

You can also take the Gift Certificate code and send it to the recipient.

Alpine winter boots

I really love these boots because of the comfort, warmth and waterproof materials. The laces can freeze and be hard to tie in certain conditions but that’s a minor annoyance. The soles started to come off the last pair but were still under the warranty so I got a new pair for free which I was really glad for. I have bought several pairs of xero shoes and will buy more because they have helped me transform my feet back to how they should have been my whole life. No foot belongs In from rubber coffin. Free your feet and you’ll thank yourself later.

Great walkers

My second pair of alpines; seems my toes have straightened over the past year, thanks to these shoes and lots of walking. In -20°F I wore these with an over boot for additional insulation. I don’t wear the insole, don’t need it. Great shoe for me, seems waterproof. Waterproof can play both ways; meaning dry the inside after extended wear.

Not waterproof

These are super comfortable, but they are not at all waterproof. I've gone through two pairs now, and neither were waterproof. Even walking through damp grass is enough to soak your feet. Customer support told me they had no current plans to update the waterproofing, so I will be looking outside Xero for another option for next winter.

Excellent, Except for Deserts or Semi-arid Areas with Cactus

I bought these because they were the closest you offer to a boot that can be used in desert environments. But alas, they can't. They're great boots on forested areas near where I live in Lincoln County, New Mexico, work as advertised in such environment. But not far away is lots of desert hiking, and these simply don't stand up to mesquite thorns and cactus spines, which go right through the sides and mesquite thorns right through the otherwise tough sole, which actually nicely stands up to sharp rocks. Thus, please consider building a pair of desert boots made of leather. And I'll buy them, as will hundreds of other desert hikers.

Fantastic boots

Used them everyday over the Canadian winter. Kept me warm and dry. Treads could have better traction though.
