After ski boots?
 
So I'm after some boots or shoes to wear around Niseko once I'm done snowboarding.

What should I be looking for in an after ski boot. Can it be just a waterproof boot?
Something easy to take off and put on I suppose I should be looking at as all restaurants and things you have to take shoes off.

What are some good boots/shoes?

Thanks

I have a pair of Nike Dunk OMS that are great. Good traction and water-resistance. I wore these while digging/building jumps last year with no issues. Not sure if Nike still makes them, but I know they have a lot of similar models.

Something like those nikes look great. Bit I'm wasn't to sure if I needed an actual snow boot or a waterproof shoe would do the trick

I just picked up a pair of nike sneakerboots which I assume are the current day equivalent.

Is getting a pair really necessary?
Might be a stupid question, but if I don't need them I'm not going to pack and take them.

Do they have walmart in Japan?

I got something like this for $50 CAD the other day. Warm and easy to slip on and off...

I really like those nike sneakerboots as they can be used anywhere.
But as I said are these really needed.

of course they're not *needed*. ernest shackleton and his homies were some of the toughest bastards ever to walk the earth and they wore leather and wool in Antarctica for like 3 fuckin years eating nothing but penguins.

if you wear skate shoes or tennis shoes and you're headed to a sloppy, wet, snowy environment you'd wear these instead and your socks will stay drier. easier on and off than real full-on boots, more waterproof and warm than sneakers.
