Air-Active footbeds wick moisture away and allow air flow
Uniquely constructed to maximize ankle support
Go ahead – trek frozen mountain trails, tromp through high-drifting snows or go fishing on a frozen lake. Cabela's Ice Northern Explorer Winter Boots are engineered to take on any winter extreme you'll ever encounter. When icy terrain stretches out before you, press forward. These boots boast retractable ice cleats. Crouch down, flip out the T-shaped lever behind the heel and give it a few twists. Quickly and easily, six ice-gripping cleats surface at the heel and the ball of the foot for amazing winter traction. Rain, snow, dew and the waters of an icy mountain stream roll off the heavily oiled nubuck uppers. Add to that 100% waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® booties and you've got a hunting boot that is guaranteed to protect your feet from anything that can dampen a trip to the mountains. That's why we added insulating layers of 800-gram Thinsulate™ Ultra insulation. This heat-trapping insulation maintains your body's natural warmth without weight and bulk. Meindl's patented removable Air-Active footbeds wick moisture away and allow air to flow around your foot with every step. Thick polyurethane midsoles absorb all the punishment dished out by uneven terrain. Boots are uniquely constructed to maximize ankle support – a safety feature that no serious mountain hunter would live without. Plus, we included oversized padded collars that eliminate blister-causing pressure points along your calf and flexes with your leg muscles for a natural walking motion. Full rubber rands surround the uppers to protect the leather from the abrasion and abuse dished out by rocky mountain terrain. Imported. Ht: 11.5". Avg wt: 5.8 lbs./pair. Men's sizes: 8-12 medium width. Half sizes to 12. Color: Brown.
