As the best value women's winter boot, the Kamik Momentum outshines the rest for its exceptional performance and low price. For the third year in a row, it wins our Best Buy award! Ideal for casual around-town errands and outdoor chores like dog walking and snow shoveling, it earns top scores in performance metrics. It is not the most stylish nor the most durable product in our review, but it will keep you warm and comfortable as you tackle tall snow drifts and icy slush. It'll also leave you with more money in your pocket.
Measuring 12.5 inches from its thick sole to the top of the shaft, this boot provides excellent protection from tall snow drifts. The fur-lined interior is cozy and warm just like the more expensive Sorel Joan of Arctic and Sorel Tofino II Pac boots. The one-pull elastic lacing system makes putting this boot on and taking it off as easy as pie. The outsole also features super big and burly lugs, grabbing soft snow and packed trails smoothly and better than most boots tested.
While there are many features that we love about this boot, we aren't impressed by its style. Thanks to its rubber toe box, pull cord closure system, and nylon upper, the Momentum looks a bit like a youth snow boot. The pull cord system doesn't provide the best fit while the shaft of the boot is flimsy, lacking support. The nylon outer is water resistant at best, while the insole pulls out often pulls when taking it off. However, even with these couple of complaints, we still think it provides the best bang for your buck…especially when considering the high price of the competition.
