Closeouts. No amount of snow, ice or slush can stop The North Face's Baltoro 400 III winter boots. Not only are they waterproof to seal out snow and slush, they're insulated and fleece-lined for warmth in frigid temperatures, too.

Overall a good boot. They are comfortable and flexible enough for snowshoeing and winter hiking, but stiff enough to offer good support. Difficult to remove laces from upper eyelets. To be fair, they don't really need to be removed. I haven't had any issue with getting my feet in the boots while fully laced up...but I haven't frozen these boots yet, so they haven't been tested in the backcountry yet.
