Winter Shoe: What replaces the venerable Salomon Snowclog?
I've worn out my last snowclogs. They were magnificent. The big lugs were like crampons for snow and slush. I don't know why Salomon discontinued them. What out there comes close?Originally Posted by blurred

Merrell Shiver Moc.
Never tried them but Polartec lined and waterproof sounds good...

I picked up a pair of these: http://www.rei.com/product/829535/pa...-2011-closeout
Clearly, the tread is nothing like the gnar-master of the old Sollys. I did treat 'em with some waterproofer. And, they are lined with some high pile fleece.

And they are tech fitting compatible!
GL for the win!

Those look like a low cut Moon boot.

Don't even care how insulated they are, rather they not be uber warm. Mostly I want shoes that have uber snow traction and keep snow/slush out but are super comfy to wear a ton.

I too am in search of a replacement for my salomons, and I think my criteria are virtually identical to Summit's; not overly insulated, kick ass in snow/slush, and comfortable. I'd also add: don't look like "poop after spaghetti night," and are easy to slip on and off quickly and easily (i.e. no laces). Agreed that the Merrells looks like the best contender thus far.
edit to add: salomon still makes this thing:

This is what I'm rocking this winter. Waterproof with a bit of insulation. Bonus, they don't look like turd since I have to wear them with dress pants on my way to work/at work. They haven't got much wear yet due to lack of snow but they seem like they'll be grippy.

^^^ bought those last year and wearing the same pair this winter, very comfortable and look much better than those frikin clogsBe more like your dog...

snow sneakers are dope. The back to berkley boot is like a higher cut snow sneaker, fwiw. I'm just waiting till the outlet gets some in. Still can't bring myself to pay full price for TNF.

been milking my first gen snowclogs from 2000 and the tread is about worn out. Functionally i see nothing that compares, but some of these look real purty.

Literally 10 minutes after I order Merrell Shiver Mocs, my girlfriend's dad offers me a pair of unworn Salomon Snow Clogs that were too small for him that are my size.
In the Merrell email "Due to the highly automated nature of our system, your order is already being processed and no changes or cancellations can be made at this time."

Bump, anything new?

I ended up buying the Salomon ones (pretty similar to the ones pictured in my post above). They're not quite as good as the original Salomon ones, but all in all, I'm happy with them. No specific complaints other than it seems like the tread pattern on the old ones was a bit better, and I think the rubberized toe looks stupid.

I have some old Salomon snow clogs too, but the tread was wearing low, so I bought some pull-on North Face boots to replace them before last winter.
IIRC, I got the "Arctic" shoes - these -
... but since last winter sucked, I don't think I used them once. I may have used the old Snow Clogs once or twice, but I think I drove to the ski area in sandals most of the time.

I got a pair similar to the Salomon's at the Bass outlet store in Truckee (not in the Bass catalog for some reason.) work great, have lasted forever, recently bought another pair for my son.

I just wear the Salomon gore tex trail runners, XA Pro Comp GTX somethingorother...
When the snow sucked last year I was trail running in them around Summit. Feet never go cold or wet and the traction was great too. I'm on my third pair.

I have a similar discontinued shoe.
They are waterproof, light, and tough.
I highly recommend checking them out.
