A woman laying down in the snow wearing manitobah mukluks, some of the warmest barefoot winter boots review

My first winter in barefoot shoes was a rough one. I had one pair of barefoot winter boots with a super thin sole and my little toesies FROZE in the snow. If zero drop barefoot shoes are preventing you from living an active life outdoors, that’s a problem. Barefoot shoes are meant to inspire movement, not have you running inside to avoid frostbite. It’s taken me a few years, but I’ve since found the best barefoot winter boot options that combine the important features of barefoot shoes along with serious functionality (aka warmth, waterproofness, and traction). This post is the ultimate guide to warm barefoot boots for winter.

Read on for the best warm barefoot winter boots including vegan options, snow options, and some great tips for keeping warm!

The All Time Warmest Barefoot Winter Boots

I’ve been testing barefoot shoes for years in extreme Midwestern temps. Here are the absolute warmest barefoot winter boots that are zero drop, flexible and even have ground feel to keep your feet healthy AND protected.

In this post I talk about what type of feet these boots are best for to help you avoid costly mistakes.For More Context On Foot Type Click Here.

*Several of these “warmest” options are not inherently waterproof, but all can be treated with waterproofing agents to make them work better for snow and wet conditions.

And one last thing before we get to the good stuff – if you’re looking for every day wear, you need this list of barefoot boots. Alright, let’s dig in to the best barefoot boots for cold temps and snow!

1. Steger Mukluks

$279 | Leather | Wool Lined | Rated to -30 F/-34.5 C

Steger Mukluks are hands down the warmest boots I’ve ever put my feet into. The insole and body of the boots are lined with 9mm thick felted wool that is moisture wicking and built for extreme temps. The outsole is rubber and surprisingly good on ice and show. The exterior is high quality moose hide (both soft and super durable). This boot beats out all the others for both warmth and traction, and yet you can still feel ice chunks under your feet when you walk. It is heavier and clunkier than the others I talk about in this post, but to have warm toes when it’s -20 F out? I’ll take it.

None of the Steger models are waterproof, so I also bought their waterproof spray and treated my boots before wearing them out. The spray is working well so far. When I come in and the snow melts, it beads up on top of the leather instead of soaking in. I plan to reapply the waterproofing spray a few times throughout the winter since it can get rubbed off. I have worn these for one full winter, with no wear evident. And I hear repeatedly from readers who owned these boots for 5, 10, even 20 years and they are still going strong.

How To Order

Steger has a retail store in Minnesota and an online shop. Everything can be ordered online, and many models are already in stock to ship right away. If it’s not in stock they can make them to order, but you might have to wait a few weeks. I ordered mine early in the season and got them within a few days. Returns are possible on unworn boots within 60 days, and the customer pays return shipping.

Fit Type

Steger Mukluks have a square toe box shape with no sloping whatsoever, so they should work for most foot types! They come in regular and wide width, so should fit both narrow and wide feet. They are high volume, which is why I chose the Quetico model that has tie laces. I have low volume feet and need to tie the laces tightly around my ankle to keep it secure, and even still I need legwarmers to fill in extra space. If you have low volume, narrow heels, and thin ankles, expect to need an extra insole, thick socks, or leg warmers to make these a secure fit. If you have thicker ankles and calves and don’t need the ties, Steger also has models that are just pull-on.

Sizing

Steger runs true to size. I ordered a Women’s size 7 Wide in my Stegers. I actually called in and the customer service rep gave me internal measurements for each size, which made it easy to choose. Size 7 is my typical boot size, and I am glad I went with the wide width, because the lining is very thick and there isn’t a lot of give to the toe box at first. Initially I had enough width for my toes, but things felt tight with thick socks. As the season wore on the inside material tamped down and they were really roomy by the end.

The Men’s mukluks are made wider than the Women’s, so extra EXTRA wide feet can get a Men’s Wide. I recommend calling in as well if you have any questions.

Traction Rating: Snow – Great | Ice – Good


2. Manitobah Mukluks

$249| Leather | Faux Fur Lined | Rated to -25 F/-32 C

Manitobah is an Aboriginal-owned Canadian brand that makes faux fur and sheepskin lined mukluks. They are built on a super flexible Vibram outsole that allows you to feel the ground, even with a super thick warm insole. One bonus to Manitobah is that they have waterproof options!

I tried both the waterproof Tamarack and the Short Wrap. Even though I was intrigued by the waterproof-ness of it, I returned the Tamarack because it was extremely wide in the calf/ankle and my foot was slipping all over inside. This might be right for some people, but the Short Wrap fits me more securely on my thin ankles and is like wearing pillows. They are the softest, coziest boots! Since the Short Wrap is not waterproof, I used Nikwax spray on it, which seems to be working well.

Note: Manitobah Mukluks start out quite narrow in the toe box and wide in the heel. Expect to break these boots in either by wearing them or stuffing the toe box tightly overnight (or for multiple nights).

How To Order

Manitobah has free shipping and free returns to the US/Canada with no minimum purchase. Outside of the US/Canada it is very expensive to ship! I received both my orders within a week of purchasing, and my return was quickly processed on the pair I sent back.

Fit Type

Manitobah Mukluks start out narrow and stretch to fit. If you are willing to break them in, they should fit all foot shapes, but extra wide feet should be wary. They are high volume the entire length of the shoe, but especially around the ankle. So if you have thin heels and ankles I recommend a wrap style like the one I got. A shoe that feels insecure can lead to awkward gait patterns and toe gripping, which is why only the wrap styles work for me.

Sizing

Manitobah recommends sizing down if you are between sizes. I went down to a size 6 after hearing they stretch a lot, and I am glad I did. Despite being slightly too narrow for my toes (at first) the midfoot and heel are really roomy and a 7 would have been much too big. I am wearing thick socks and leg warmers to keep them secure around my ankles. Mine are stretching out nicely!

Traction Rating: Snow – Great | Ice – Good


3. Softstar Phoenix

$250 | Leather | Sheepskin Lined | Rated to -25 F/-32 C

The Softstar Phoenix is a sheepskin boot with a size zipper for easy on and off. The lining is super thick, warm, and close fitting so you don’t feel like you’re going to walk out of the boot. They can be worn with or without socks because of the soft, moisture wicking sheepskin. They keep my legs and feet super cozy in cold temps.

How To Order

All Softstar Shoes are handmade right in their shop, so during peak season expect a wait time of up to two weeks. Shipping and Returns (within 45 days) are free in the US. International shipping starts at $8 to Canada and $16 to rest of world. During slower times shoes ship really quickly! Use code ANYA for 15% off your first purchase from Softstar. Note that the code won’t work unless you are signed into your account.

Fit Type

The Phoenix is a medium width boot with the capability to stretch and mold, but it is slightly tapered in the toe box. It can work for all foot shapes if you are willing to stretch the upper, but square feet and wide toes should size up. They are low volume over the instep, but again can stretch to fit higher volume feet.

Sizing

The Phoenix fits snugly, so sizing up is advised unless you like a close fit or have narrow feet. They can be worn barefoot or with socks, because the sheepskin is moisture wicking. I got a size 6u (US women’s 7, men’s 5), which is my typical boot size. They are indeed snug, and at first I had to wear them barefoot to break them in. A few walks later and I am now wearing thin socks. In hindsight, I wish I had sized up so that I could use thick socks with these, but even with thin socks they are super cozy and warm. Because I have wide toes, the edge of my foot is hanging over the edge

Traction Rating: Snow – Good | Ice – Good


4. Zeazoo Dingo

$120 | Leather | Sheepskin lined | Rated to -20 F / -29 C

The Zeazoo Dingo is a personal favorite of mine. They are the perfect barefoot Uggs dupe and so easy to slip on for quick jaunts outside when it’s freezing. I wear mine often as school-run, coffee-run, and mail-run shoes. The sheepskin lining wicks sweat so they’re comfortable barefoot and they are just so warm but lighter than all the above options (and nice and wide). You can also roll the top down to get a furry cuff and a shorter height.

How to Order

The Dingo is made by Zeazoo Kids and they ship internationally, but you can also find them at retailers around the world to save on shipping costs. I carry it at Anya’s Shop in adults and kids sizes for US/Canadian residents (huge restock is coming soon for the ’21/’22 winter season!!). UK residents can purchase from 100 Barefoot Soles (use code ANYASREVIEWS to get 10% off your order), and the rest of the world can get them directly from Zeazoo Kids (use code ANYASREVIEWS to get 5% off your order).

Fit Type

The Dingo boot has a Plateau shaped toe box and is wide throughout. They are high volume and might be loose on thin ankles. Leg warmers are a great way to make a pull-on boot like the Dingo work for low volume feet.

Sizing

The Dingo runs big. I have a size US 6 or EU 36, a full size down from my usual boot size, and I have plenty of space even with thick socks. I could even wear a size 35 if I wanted to. They should be a little snug to start because they stretch and the fur tamps down with use. This type of construction is very forgiving and stretches in all directions.

Traction Rating: Snow – Good | Ice – Good


5. Be Lenka Winter Boots

$195-$255 | Leather | Wool or Fleece Lined | Rated to 20 F/-7 C (by me)

Be Lenka Barefoot has several boot models that are fully lined with either fleece or wool. They offer two different outsoles – both work fairly well for winter wear, but the “New Sole” is specially designed to be more durable and slip resistant. I do fine in snow and ice on both soles, but prefer the New Sole if I’m going to be hiking or outside for a long time. I am comfortable in them down to about 20 F/-7 C. One huge benefit to the Be Lenka boots is that some models have a dressier look to them and can be worn to work or casually without making you look like an Alaskan ranger. They have a smooth leather upper, so are easy to waterproof, and they are ultra wide and comfortable. Another reason I love Be Lenka is they are light, soft, and feel comfortable on my feet all day. I have been wearing my Be Lenka Winter boots for two winters now and they continue to be some of my most worn.

The wool lined options and the warmest. I love the Polar for it’s quick side zipper and simple design. The Nord and Sierra are fleece lined, which is not as thick or warm. Both are practical and cozy but look like regular shoes instead of heavy winter boots.

How To Order

We carry Be Lenka boots at Anya’s Shop! North American readers can find several Be Lenka Barefoot winter boots styles there, saving them shipping and returns expenses. The rest of the world can order directly from Be Lenka and use code ANYASREVIEWS for 5% off (but returns aren’t accepted outside the EU, so order with caution).

Fit Type

Be Lenka’s original sole caters to a Sloped foot with a prominent big toe. The new sole has a square shape to it and fits all foot shapes (winter boots in a square shape are hard to find!). Their wool lined winter boots fit a low to medium volume foot (the Nord, Ranger, and Snowfox work better for for high volume) and are extra wide. I have a Mountain shaped foot, and have no trouble fitting into them.

Sizing

Be Lenka shoes run true to size in general, but the wool lined models (the Winter and the Polar) are snug. You may want to size up in those if you plan to wear warm socks. Otherwise, Be Lenka is a very spacious brand so expect to have lots of room for your toes to spread out. I wear my normal size EU 37 in all.

Traction Rating: Snow – Good | Ice – Good


6. Wildling Shoes

$145 | Cotton & Wool | Water Resistant | Rated to 20 F/-7 C (by me)

Wildling Shoes hold a special place in my heart. They literally feel like wearing nothing, combining innovation, quality materials, and a gorgeous aesthetic. Besides being adorable, Wildling has somehow managed to create an ultra thin outsole that bends in all directions effortlessly. The uppers of Wildling winter shoes have an integrated waterproof membrane and are topped with either wool or cotton. Shown here is the Honeybear, cotton lined with wool, and the Nessie (kids version), wool lined with wool.

I ordered a felt insole from Wildling to go along with my Honeybears, which I consider essential (my cold rating above includes the insoles). In addition I wear wool socks and leg warmers and am able to get by in 15 F/ -10 C for short periods of time, though I would be most comfortable in temps of about 25 F+. While these are not sufficient to keep me outside for long during the harsh Midwest winters, I wear mine frequently for short jaunts and feel like I’m in slippers the whole time.

How To Order

Wildling Shoes ships with DHL Express and the cost is 5 Euros within Germany and 9 Euros internationally (quite affordable if you ask me). Your first return is free, after that you pay the same rates to have them shipped back by DHL. Returns are super easy with their online portal.

Fit Type

Wildling Shoes have a Plateau toe box and are good for most foot types (one exception being very square feet). They are medium width, so I need to size up in order to wear thick socks because I have wide feet. They fit a low to high volume foot because of the laces.

Sizing

Wildling has printable size charts to help you pick the correct size. I find them true to size for length, but I need to size up in order to have enough width for socks and an insole. I am wearing a size EU 38. My boys’ boots were true to size and plenty spacious without sizing up.

Traction Rating: Snow – Good | Ice – Satisfactory


7. Magical Shoes Alaskan

$139 (after code ANYA) | Leather | Wool Lined | Water Resistant| Rated to 25 F/-4 C (by me)

The Magical Shoes Alaskan is an ultra flexible, ultra lightweight wool-lined barefoot winter boot. The outsole is very grippy on snow and ice, and the side zipper makes them easy to put on and off. For being so light, they are surprisingly practical. But I do find the material on the thinner side so my feet got cold faster than in the other boots I tested. I put in an extra insole and warm socks, but still felt the cold through the top fairly quickly in my climate.

While the upper material is water resistant, the zipper and the tongue is not waterproof so water can come in through those places if soaked.

How To Order

You can get 10% off Magical shoes with code ANYA (no expiration date). Magical Shoes has free global shipping on orders over 130 dollars, and returns are possible on unworn shoes within 30 days (customer pays return shipping). Shoes ship from Poland.

Fit Type

The Alaskan boot has a Plateau shaped toe box, so is good for people with Sloped, Mountain, or Plateau feet (square feet might size up to get a better fit). They fit a medium to high volume foot, and they are nice and wide. I have low volume feet and fit into them well with thicker socks and/or an insole.

Sizing

I find these to run a little short. I got my normal size 37, and my toes are closer to the front than I prefer. The width is great, but I would probably go up to a 38 next time since I like to wear thick socks.

Traction Rating: Snow – Good | Ice – Good


The Best Barefoot Winter Boots for Snow – Waterproof & Good Traction

A top down view of a pair of feet wearing the xero shoes vegan barefoot winter snow boot the Alpine standing in deep snow

Here is a list of my top picks for barefoot snow boots. These are boots that come up above the ankle to protect from deep snow, are waterproof (or can be waterproofed) and have good traction on both powdery snow and ice. These barefoot boots become more practical when you use extra thermal insoles such as these sheepskin ones.

And don’t forget that you can waterproof or re-waterproof shoes that are starting to lose their effectiveness. For more info, check out this post on Waterproof Barefoot Shoes, or the Tips on Staying Warm section at the bottom of this post.

1. Vivobarefoot Tracker

$240 | Leather | Waterproof | Rated to 0 F / – C (by me)

The Vivobarefoot Tracker is one of the most versatile barefoot boots around. They are thick and padded (to keep you warm), waterproof, and have good traction. I use a sheepskin insole in place of the one Vivobarefoot provides and I am comfortable in temps down to 0 F / -14 C. These boots are my top pick for snowy hikes when I need to have a firm grip on the ground. In the winter Vivobarefoot also sells a Hi version that is even better for deep snow.

*Note – the included “thermal insole” will not keep your feet warm enough if you are walking through snow or using them in more extreme cold conditions. I recommend swapping it out for a sheepskin insole for better warmth.

For fit info, read my full review of the Vivobarefoot Tracker. Get 10% off your Vivobarefoot purchase with code ANYAVB

Sizing & Fit

The Tracker has a Sloped shape, so won’t work for square shaped feet. It fits a low to medium volume foot. I sized up to a EU 38 (size 37 is my normal) so I could use a sheepskin insole and thick socks to stay warm.

Traction Rating: Snow – Great | Ice – Good


2. Be Lenka Winter, Ranger & Snowfox

$200 | Leather | Wool or Fleece Lined | Waterproof

Be Lenka has 3 barefoot winter boots that work for snow: the Snowfox, the Ranger, and the Winter. These are durable, waterproof boots, with a slip resistant outsole. They work for winter hiking, playing in the now, or daily winter wear. Shown above is the Ranger. We are carrying all 3 of these models at Anya’s Shop this season!

Sizing & Fit

These Be Lenka barefoot snow boots all have a square, extra wide shape to them. The wool lined Winter and the Ranger runs small. The Snowfox is new and I haven’t seen the adult ones in person yet (the kids ones are amazing and true to size). I will update with sizing info once I have the Snowfox. If you have high volume feet I would go for the Ranger or the Snowfox.

Traction Rating: Snow – Great | Ice – Good

3. Xero Alpine

$149 | Waterproof | Vegan | Rated to 0 F / – C (by me)

The Xero Alpine is an all around solid barefoot snow boot. It comes up higher than the Tracker, and is easy to cinch tight to keep snow out. They are waterproof and come with a removable insole, which I swap out for a warmer sheepskin insole. These are warm enough for me in subzero temps with thick wool socks, but note that the fluff is only in the top and not lined throughout. My two beefs with this boot are that the sole is really stiff and they are slippery on ice (but great on snow).

Sizing & Fit

The Xero Alpine is a high volume boot, I have lots of space above my toes. The toe box is great for Mountain or Plateau shaped feet, and is medium width. This boot will not be wide enough for extra wide feet, and sizing is true to size (I am wearing my normal boot size 7 which allows me to wear thick socks).

Traction Rating: Snow – Great | Ice – Satisfactory


4. Steger Mukluks

A pair of Steger Mukluks walking through snow

Because of Steger’s serious warmth factor, they are what I’ll be reaching for during the coldest parts of the winter. They feel a little heavier on my feet than the above two options, but they are not slippery in snow and get the job done. Just make sure you waterproof them before wearing in snow. For more info check them out in the All Time Warmest Barefoot Boot section!


5. Softstar Phoenix

The Softstar phoenix is super warm and can easily be waterproofed because the bottom of the shoe is smooth leather. It’s possible to get water in through the zipper, so they might not be best for deep slush. For more info on the Softstar Phoenix check them out in the All Time Warmest Barefoot Winter Boots section.


6. Manitobah Mukluks

Manitobah is another good snow option because they have a grippy outsole that keeps you stable and they are very warm. For more info check them out in the All Time Warmest Barefoot Boot category!


Warmest Vegan Barefoot Winter Boots

If you wear vegan shoes, it can be extra tough to find warm barefoot boot options. The following are the warmest barefoot winter boots that are completely animal free. See my Best Vegan Barefoot Winter Boots Review for detailed info on them.

You can also upgrade your other vegan barefoot shoes by using a thermal insole! Check out the Tips for Staying Warm section for options.

Tips for Staying Warm in Barefoot Shoes

Even if you don’t have the absolute warmest zero drop winter boots, there are things you can do to make them cozier. I use a combination of all these things through out the cold season.

Boot Liners

Depending on how much extra space you have inside your boots, liners can really increase their warmth. Put a warm liner inside a waterproof overshoe and you’ve got yourself warmth, traction, and waterproof-ness.

Insoles

My all time favorite trick is to use an insole. Here are a few of my favorite warm insoles that make my regular boots more practical for winter. For more, read this post on barefoot insoles.

  • Sheepskin – Takes up lots of space, you may want to size up in your shoes to fit
  • Wool – Cut to fit your shoe size!
  • Furry (vegan)
  • Thermal (vegan) – I don’t find these to be very warm, but if you need vegan they are an option.

  1. Since you have some influence in the barefoot world please have some one make a really warm boot like Sorels that are lace up in the front with good traction. Thanks! 🙂

  2. Hey!
    I’m wondering if you tested any of the Angles or Davinci boots for traction? I’ve been eyeing them for a while since I find their style more appealing, but can’t find any reviews on that matter.
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi! I have reviewed Da Vinci, the outsole is ok on ice and snow but not great. It works in a pinch though! I haven’t tried Angles yet, but have two pairs on the way to me now.

    1. It would depend on the temperate! I wear my Vivobarefoot Trackers a lot if it’s not too cold (as in not below), but since it often is where I live I wear the Stegers and Manitobah boots pretty often in the snow.

  3. Hi Anya!
    Thank you soo much for all the great information you provide, you have helped me so much in my journey to stronger, healthier feet (and body)!

    I have a question about the Manitobah, you say to size down but would you mind sharing your foot measurement or how much space you have according to their sizing chart?

    As the sizes are not european and I have found vastly differing conversion tables I am confused as to what would be a size down for me. My feet are about 24,5 and 25,0 and size 9 is listed as 25,5 and size 10 is listed as 26,0. Most of my shoes are around 26 – 26,3 but I don’t have any winter boots yet so not sure if my regular boot size would be 10 or 11. As I live in Sweden it will be very expensive for me to get it wrong, so I am trying to get it as right as I can 🙂

    Thank you in advance and keep up the great work!
    Best regards Camilla

    1. Hi Camila! My feet measure 23.3 cm long from a foot tracing and I usually buy a size women’s 7 in boots or an EU 37/38. I got a size 6 in Manitobah (which usually translates to a 36 in EU, but not always) and they felt tight at first but feel really spacious now. Hope that helps a little! You might also email in to them and ask for help. Good luck!

  4. Hello,
    Thank you for your review on the tracker by vivobarefoot. It’s good to know that it does well in snow and ice.
    would you say the vivobarefoot tracker and the forest tracker both would do well in snow and ice?
    also do you have listed your favorite warm insoles and where to find them? would you also say that the xero xcursion could be good for snow and ice if the warmer insole is used?
    all my best,
    Catherine

    1. Hi Catherine! In the table of contents you can jump to the section on “Tips for Keeping Warm,” there I list my favorite warm socks and insoles with links. Yes, the Xcursion could be used in those conditions with an insole, but it still won’t be super warm. I used mine in some ice in the spring before it thawed and my feet were kind of cold (but I hadn’t swapped out the insole). The Tracker FG is warmer overall.

  5. Will you be updating this list with the new Be Lenkas? Would love to know how their new ones stack up against the older ones.

  6. Hello, found you doing a Google search. Amazing, quality review. Thank you. I am traveling to Antarctica in January for three months for work. I’ve been wearing barefoot shoes for many years now and find any shoe that isn’t zero drop kills my feet. However I’m ok with stiff soles. I was hoping there would be a warm, waterproof / snow show that could cope with -10 degrees Celsius that was zero drop. Wondering what you would wear if you were heading there?

    1. Hey, there, thanks! I would still go with Steger for those temps. It’s regularly much colder than that where I live in the winter and I can stay out for long periods of time with warm feet in the Stegers. You might do ok with the new Be Lenka Snowfox, but it’s a brand new style and I haven’t tested it in winter yet so I would be reluctant to recommend it for a big trip like that.

    1. They did not when I wrote this, but they updated them to a 2.0 version this year that I am fairly certain is gusseted to about halfway up the eyelets. We have not yet gotten our Winter boots at Anya’s Shop so I don’t know for sure.

  7. Hello Anya,
    I love your reviews and you have influenced me to go “barefoot!”
    Sorry, but the ANYA code at Vivobarefoot didn’t work for me tonight, FYI.

    Thanks for everything!

  8. Hi Anya, I find this list really helpful thank you! I suffer from Raynaud’s disease and get chilblains on my feet. I’m soon moving to Norway where the winters are cold and wet and need a really warm pair of waterproof snow boots. Which one would be your first choice? It seems that the Stegers would be good but are they truly waterproof and good to stay out in the snow or even when it rains? Many thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Silvia! The Stegers are definitely the warmest, but they are so warm that I only wear them if it’s below freezing. That means it’s never very wet when I wear them. I did use a waterproofing spray, but haven’t tested it in puddles or rain (my feet would be so hot!). Personally I think the warmest option that’s still fully waterproof is the Be Lenka Winter 2.0. The Zeazoo Dingo’s are also very warm and good for Raynaud’s, but you’d have to really waterproof them (probably a wax based sealant like Sno Seal) to make them functional for rain.

    1. Hi Silvia, I haven’t yet. We will be carrying them at Anya’s Shop so I’ll get a chance to try them as soon as they start shipping (hopefully soon).

  9. Thank you for this list! Do you know when you/the BeLenka website will have re-stocked the three different winter boots? They went so quickly! TIA
