There are certain aspects of a snowmobile boot that sets them apart from regular boots. Top brands like Klim, FXR, HMK and Baffin have nailed down the construction and style aspects that go into making a warm and protective pair of boots for snowmobiling.
Waterproof breathable materials like Gore-Tex® work to remove excess perspiration from your feet without allowing any outside moisture from entering. This, combined with the latest insulation (Thinsulate and Merino wool) and sealed seams, will keep your feet warm in almost all conditions. If you ride in extreme conditions, be sure the cold rating will be low enough. Many of the warmest snowmobile boots are rated for well below zero temperatures.
Protection is also an important factor when choosing a good pair. Boots that are made for snowmobiling are reinforced in the ankle and can have extra cushioning on toes and heels. Reinforced toe and heel kicks resist wear and allow you to easily clear ice and snow from the tread. Anti-slip soles help you to stay connected to your running boards at all times.
