Good to know
- The Cryos Hikers is a leathered up hiking gear designed for winter pursuits. Its handmade upper is lined with felted wool for thermal insulation.
- Terrain balance and underfoot comfort are granted by the boot’s lightweight EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) midsole. It is imbued with Cradle—a company-exclusive technology that adds a molded TPU insert at the heel for extra rearfoot stability.
A mid-cut, fairly true-to-size winter hiking boot for men and women is the Cryos Hikers. It is offered in standard width. It comes in a range of whole and half sizes. Its closure system provides a precise lockdown.
To help winter adventurers avoid slipping off a variety of backcountry surfaces, The North Face engineers opted to give this boot a Vibram outsole. It claws into the earthy terrain with the help of its blocky lugs and cross-shaped central studs.
The Cryos Hikers’ primary defense against pointy rocks and bulbous roots is its microporous EVA midsole. Its stabilizing capability is doubled down by the proprietary Cradle technology. It comes default with a latex-based sockliner (footbed) topped with felted wool for a soft underfoot feel and extra comfort.
Isolating the foot from the direct assault of the elements is the footgear’s over-the-ankle upper. It is made with a combination of calfskin (used in the collar region) and full-grain leather. It is capable of giving the foot enough warmth thanks to its breathable felted-wool liner. It comes built with rubber mudguards for additional protection against elemental forces. Synthetic laces and combination eyelets, most of which are made of metal, make up its quick lacing system.
- The women’s version of this TNF hiker has felted wool covering the front portion of its upper. This version is also offered in limited quantities across online retailers.
