This winter hiking boot from Baffin employs a lightweight Polar outsole to aid users in tackling a challenging trail. It’s made of Baffin’s patented Polar rubber compound which retains its flexibility in low temperatures while being resistant to abrasion. Its profile contains a network of irregular quadrilateral lugs that generate traction on snowy and slushy landscapes. A heel brake is incorporated into its design for extra control when traversing downhill slopes. Its front end extends toward the forefoot area to protect the user’s foot from stubbing.
The Baffin Snosport features an EVA midsole to supply lightweight cushioning. It operates alongside a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) plate for added support and underfoot protection. The boot’s removable footbed combats odor-causing microbes while offering extra comfort.
Underneath the footbed is an insole containing a layer of Baffin’s B-Tek four-channel hollow fiber insulation. It’s paired with a vaporized aluminum membrane to trap heat and warm the wearer’s foot in cold weather conditions.
Keeping the wearer’s foot covered and protected from the elements is the Baffin Snosport’s Soft Shell upper. Its seam-sealed construction is designed to prevent water intrusions. The upper’s toe box is reinforced with a cap for added durability. Its molded tendon guard contains a raised ledge to make snowshoe attachment possible.
The Baffin Snosport’s closure system consists of metal eyelets, hooks, and a lace bungee. Its bellows tongue helps prevent debris from entering the boot. The collar comes with a pull tab for an easy on and off.
