Smart Purchases Begin With Smart Tips

Q: How can I know how warm a winter boot is?

A: Most winter boots will have their temperature rating listed in the product description. If not, our customer service agents will be happy to provide you with additional information. A little tip to get the best experience when wearing a pair of winter boots, start by choosing merino wool socks. Merino wool is not only soft next to the skin, but unlike cotton, the moisture-managing properties will wick away any moisture from perspiration and allow your feet to breathe. At Altitude Sports, we have an extensive collection of merino socks for men and women so everyone can have warm, dry feet this winter.

To ensure your winter coat is the right fit for you, check out our How Should A Winter Coat Fit post for some tips and easy-to-do tests to help you find the perfect winter coat this season.
