With its running midsole, the skateboard-inspired leather Rodeo is your sneaker for the snow. Testers called the microfiber lining “teddy-bear soft,” but it’s also insulating and wicking—even spring hikers’ feet never got sweaty. Note: this boot is cut short, so choose it for packed powder or fast-and-light outings paired with a gaiter. 1.5 lbs
