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!

NICE!

I must say I am very much satisfied with the product. I'm a mail carrier for Canada Post and I've worn these boots for an entire winter season of snow, slush, salt, mud... and they felt amazingly comfortable. Not to mention durable. I'll be able to get another season out of them. Congrats to the Xeroshoes team and keep up the good quality!

So comfortable and light!

Very nice to walk and hike in. Once they break in, they're very comfy.

AMAZING

I very RARELY write reviews. But these shoes deserve one! I have been hiking the White Mountains of NH all winter in these, and I cannot say enough good things about them. Never once my feet got cold (even in frigid -20F) wearing just one pair of socks. Super comfortable and no problems wearing crampons with them! I bought them in September last year. Started wearing in November and used them for every hike since. I ordered 1/2 size larger than usual and I was glad. A++++ Camilla

Would give 5 stars but the fit is horrible

The size 8 in the other style of Xero boots fit me perfectly and I ordered the 7.5 in the Alpine because it was the only thing in stock. Unfortunately, even though they should be smaller, they are WAY too big on my feet and I feel like I'm wearing clown shoes. I can't walk properly or drive while wearing them, so huge waste of money. Other than that they are an amazing boot with absolutely excellent construction and style and materials. If they fit me properly they would literally be my favorite shoe that I've ever had in the whole world! I highly recommend them as long as you're willing to gamble on size.

I wish they were actually waterproof.

I needed roomy, minimal boots I could wear during the cold, wet months and thought I finally found what I needed in these Xero Alpine boots, so I ordered a pair last Fall. They are certainly roomy (actually way larger in size than I would have expected), and warm, and minimal. But after five weeks of wearing, their "waterproof" ability disappeared. I mainly walk on damp grass/gravel, not in puddles or anything (although I did test the boots in some puddles at the very beginning), and they leaked through the area where the sole is sewn on. I mentioned it to Xero and they sent me another pair to try, thinking it was a production anomaly. Same experience with the second pair—waterproof for a few weeks, and then they leaked through as well. Once again I contacted Xero, and they graciously sent a third pair to try. Third time's a charm, right? No, again after five weeks of wear, the seams leaked, too. And this time I also got to test the third pair in snow and slush, and they are even more leaky in these conditions than the typical damp conditions I was wearing them in. I suspect the "waterproof" seal might be loosening and/or breaking down after the boots are "broken in", so explaining why they are suddenly leaky after a few weeks. Maybe this didn't come up testing. They are warm and roomy, though, so good for cold, dry conditions, but NOT when something waterproof is needed.

Best Snow Boots Ever!

These boots are warm! Comfortable! Waterproof! Lightweight! And cute! They perform better than any other snow boot I've owned. I've walked through a snowy forest preserve. I've shoveled snow and walked through slushy puddles. My feet remain warm and dry. I can still feel the uneven ground with my feet and react with the proper body parts to correct my balance. Love these boots!

I love my Alpines

These boots are really great, and I am so picky about shoes, plus wear them hard! The Alpines are so lightweight, comfortable, waterproof, and warm. I really couldn’t ask for more in a winter boot. I wear them hiking, sometimes with spikes or snowshoes. My socks never get wet inside and I’m impressed that with one layer of good socks how warm my toes stay. Get these boots!
