If you've seen some skiers with funky black coverings on their boots, you may have wondered what they are. Ski boot gloves, also called "bootgloves," are insulating neoprene coverings that slip over the toe and front buckles of your ski boots, wrapping around the ankle to stay secure. They are both wind and waterproof in order to keep your boots protected from nasty weather.
Some skiers swear by them, others wear them only on the coldest of days, and some go boot glove-free. Read more about ski boot gloves - if they work, if they're worth it, and where you can find them.
