Apres ski boots that do it all, from trudging through the snow to dining at the hot apres spot.
Apres ski boots
After a long day on the slopes, the boot you choose to wear off-piste matters.
Ski boots aren’t meant for walking in, much less the catwalk that the apres ski can be (and some apres spots don’t even allow ski boots inside!).

What are Apres Ski Boots?
Apres boots are what you switch your ski boots for after your last run. They’re more comfortable boots that are still functional but give your look that extra style.
Look for apres ski boots that are insulated (like shearling or Thinsulate) and at least water-resistant or waterproof-able, like leather.
While function is obviously a priority, so is fashion when you’re vacationing at some of the chicest ski destinations in the world.
