The Zamberlan 1006 Vioz Plus GTX RR boots are excellent in snow, but they are not insulated. The Waxed Tuscan leather uppers are 2.8mm thick, lined with Gore-Tex Performance Comfort membranes, and cushioned with the Zamberlan Cushioning System. All of these features combine to make a boot that holds up well in conditions to about 15 or 20 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on personal tolerances for the cold. If you are looking for a similar boot that is insulated, try the 1004 Hunter GTX RR, which is nearly identical but two inches taller and insulated with Gore-Tex Insulated Comfort (about a 400-500g Thinsulate equivalent) and good to about -5 degrees Fahrenheit.
