The best women’s snowboots should provide adequate warmth and protection for the feet and ankles under extreme conditions while ensuring enough traction when used on wet and slippery surfaces. Snowboot uppers may be made from nylon, suede, leather and other weather-resistant material. In general, a higher boot height means better protection for the calves and ankles. The foot bed should be padded with lightweight but sturdy material to provide extra cushioning and shock absorption to protect feet on rough terrain. The outer sole should feature heavy treads for maximum traction in wet and slippery conditions. Look for temperature ratings when choosing snow boots because these ratings result from performance testing in laboratory conditions and would indicate how suitable these winter footwear will be for different purposes, including walking, hiking, and outdoor adventures.
