When winter locks things down, the Snow Junkie UltraDry™ provides a snowy escape. Fast and light, the Snow Junkie is a hybrid that combines the agility of a trail boot with the cold-weather capability of a snow boot. Featuring UltraDry™ waterproofing, 200 grams of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation, and not an ounce of the unnecessary, the boot was purpose-built for snowshoeing and on-foot, packed-trail travel. Clearly hitting the mark, the Snow Junkie was selected as recipient of the Backpacker Magazine Editor's Choice 2012 Snow Award.
The UltraDry™ waterproofing system combines a moisture management lining with waterproof components for dry, long-lasting comfort and performance. The Snow Junkie also features the Vasque Blur outsole, with a dual density compression molded EVA midsole, TPU midfoot stabilizer, textile trail guard, and a rubber outsole with sticky compound.
Fit Profile: The Snow Junkie UltraDry™ is built on the Perpetuum last. This last is formed on a straighter line for people with flatter feet, with a broad toe box, tailored instep, and a lower heel volume than the Arc Tempo's medium volume. The last is stable and comfortable for going the distance, and the broad toe box is ideal for endurance activities because it allows the forefoot to expand naturally. A tailored instep locks the foot securely in place to minimize foot movement, reducing friction. The Perpetuum last works great on your feet all day, whether running, hiking, or standing.
