The perfect balance between cozy and lightweight. – Rhylee C.

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 water-resistant 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 insulation, rated to -25°/-32°C, so they should keep your feet warm no matter where your adventures take you. 

Lightweight and grippy

A women’s 7 weighs just 11.9 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.

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.

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.

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!

Winter boots with room for toes to move around

Super excited that Xero came out with a snow boot this year. With regular conventional winter boots, my toes always were cold and getting numb - likely because they were smushed together in a narrow toe box with no room to move. I could already feel the toe freedom difference when putting on these boots. Here's to hoping for warm happy toes this winter 🙂 Sizing is always a bit tricky. I'm normally a size 6, but ordered a 6.5 based on reviews below and thinking that I should size up for a thicker sock. However even with a medium weight merino wool sock, my heel was stepping out of the back of the boot when walking. Thus I'll be returning for my regular size 6 and hoping those will be a better fit. My recommendation is to order your regular size as well as a 1/2 bigger, and just see which one works the best for you.

Thank you, thank you.

Grateful that you've remembered all of us in snow country. Your shoes and boots are the best. I haven't worn anything but zeros for more than five years.They make me a bit shorter than my 5 feet tall, but I am able to stand so much straighter than wearing a traditional shoe that the trade-off is enormous.Thank you for all the hardwork.Your company puts out great products.

Runs small

Hi! Typically I'm an 8, but when I tried these on barefoot, my toes hit the edges. Given that they are cold weather boots, I'd go up a half or full size depending on the thickness of your socks. Otherwise, they were cute and seemed like they would be comfy!

Bring on the snow!

Just go my Alpine Woman’s Snow boot,10.5, today! They feel great! Lightweight, stylish, waterproof with grippy soles. I wear a woman’s 10 in Prio and went with a 10.5 for the Alpine to allow room for bulkier socks. Plus I figured a little bit is space/air will trap the heat to keep feet warm. I expect these to be great for cold, snowier days when path is mostly cleared. The Alpine come in at a little under 8 inches tall. Would love to see a tall, up to knee true snow boots to tackle those deep snowfalls. These will be my everyday, go-to, winter boots! I’m officially ready for winter!

They Fit

Review based on fit alone. I wear women's 9.5 Prior and bought this in 9.5. I put on my thickest socks and still have room to spare. I'm kind of between a size and could almost go down half a size but not quite. Since it's 90 degrees in my house I can easily say that my feet are plenty warm. Performance review will have to wait until December or January...

I've never been so excited about a winter boot

I love these. I usually wear a women's 9 in Xero but decided to go a half size up to make room for thick socks, and I'm glad I did. They definitely seem like they will be warm and durable enough for my midwest winters. And they are cute which isn't a requirement for me but is a HUGE plus. They do seem a little stiffer than most barefoot shoes but are DEFINITELY better than most boots on the market. I'm sure they will loosen up eventually. Overall, I love them and I'm actually excited to wear them in the cold/snow 🙂

Amazing Boot!

Exactly what I was hoping for! These boots are incredibly lightweight and comfortable straight out of the box. I normally wear a 9.5 and have had some trouble in the past with new releases running a tad small for me and needing to size up. However, the Alpine 9.5 fits wonderfully with my merino wool socks. They are not as flexible as some other pairs of Xero shoes I own, but I'm willing to sacrifice a little in that area in order to have the waterproofing. The black color is very wearable even when not fully decked out in snow gear. I'm excited to give these a proper test run this winter.

Even better than I expected!

I am a Michigander, and we take winter serious around here. I ordered these boots because of the warm and traction they provide. I knew they would be comfortable, because I have yet to find a Xero shoe that isn't. What I didn't expect was how cute they are. I ordered the women's black, and I absolutely love them! The lining is soft and warm. And they will definitely look cute with jeans, leggings, even my scrubs. The traction on the bottom is great. When you combine that with the control that these shoes provide you while walking, you really step up traction game. The wider toe box leaves room for the thicker socks that come with winter. And you could even use toe warmers comfortably for those bitter cold days. I cannot say enough good about these boots. I expected the quality. But I definitively didn't expect love at first site with boots. They are so adorably winter that I wanted to put my tree up in August 🙂

The perfect bareboot winter shoe

Out of the box they are so lightweight and comfortable. After a while you won't recognize that your wearing boots. They look stylish, they have a great grip and if its getting really icy just trow a pair of crampons on and your good to go. I recommend wearing merino wool socks with the Alpine. They are waterproof and feature a heat reflective insole. The lacing is easygoing so no fiddling around. This boot can be worn anywhere - going for a snowwalk through a winter forest to christmas shopping in the city to Aprés Ski in a mountain hut in Switzerland.

Cute, functional, & comfortable!

Feet are going to be happy this winter if they are in these boots when outside in the snow! I got them in black, and the contrasting white accents and faux fur top make these look super cute! Beyond that though, these boots are functional. There is no snow here right now, but I tested the waterproof factor by submerging my booted foot into cold water for about ten minutes, and I felt no moisture inside. As soon as I lifted the boot, water beaded up and dropped off the surface. I couldn't test them in cold weather, but they feel like they would do a good job of keeping feet warm, and there is a heat reflecting insole to help. The (luxuriously soft) faux fur top should help prevent snow from slipping into the boot, and heat from escaping. The soles are thicker than other Xero Shoes, but that is understandable for a winter/snow boot, between the need for larger lugs and additional insulating factor. They are still flexible and SO much lighter than conventional snow boots! The tread is designed and spaced to where I expect it to release snow readily, maintaining good traction. Overall, I am impressed with these snow boots and I am excited to try them out in winter conditions!
