Excellent traction especially on ice

This snow boot comes with a Polar Rubber outsole that is designed to perform under very low temperatures without losing traction. The compound used in formulating this unit grants a softer rubber than traditional soles that maximizes its grip on ice.

Provide stability over rugged surfaces

Each lug is widely spaced to prevent snow and mud from building up. The aggressive studs found at the perimeter grant a decent amount of stability over rugged surfaces.

Supportive and comfortable cushioning

Underfoot, the Baffin Zone employs Tendon Guard with EVA midsole. Thanks to its characteristics, users are granted a supportive and comfortable ride.

Provides protection against sharp trail objects and promotes freshness

A TPU plate renders rigidity and protects the foot against sharp trail objects. A removable, stabilizing antimicrobial insole cradles the foot and promotes freshness.

Waterproof and breathable

The Baffin Zone winter boot uses a hard-wearing soft shell synthetic upper. Inside, it has a form-fitting liner that comfortably hugs the foot. Its interior has a watertight bootie construction, meaning a waterproof and breathable membrane is integrated between the lining and the outer material.

This feature helps keep the feet dry and protected against the elements while allowing internal moisture to evaporate. Enhanced comfort comes from its plush tongue and collar.

Amplifies abrasion resistance and durability

Providing protection against outdoor obstacles is the boot’s extended toe rand. Visible in the midfoot area is a reinforcement that amplifies abrasion resistance and durability.
