The Snowblime UltraDry features a classic backpacker profile, but make no mistake: it's a snow boot through and through. From the gridded-fleece collar, to the snow-biting Venture bottom package, the Snowblime was developed specifically for winter hiking and backpacking. Polyurethane-coated leather sheds wet snow while UltraDry waterproofing makes sure not a drop gets through. With 200 grams 3M Thinsulate Insulation and CuShin Comfort Tongue Technology to minimize shin pressure, the Snowblime is a technological wonder -- cleverly disguised as a traditional boot.
The ColdHold compound sole is a dual density rubber optimized for superior traction in cold environments. Harder, sharper lugs line the perimeter of the sole offering positive bite into snow and frozen turf while the center lugs remain pliable in cold temperature, conforming to irregularities of terrain. The UltraDry waterproofing system combines a moisture management lining with waterproof components for dry, long-lasting comfort and performance.
Fit Profile: The Snowblime UltraDry is built on the Perpetuum last. This last is formed on a straighter line for people with flatter feet, with a broad toe box, tailored instep, and a lower heel volume than the Arc Tempo's medium volume. The last is stable and comfortable for going the distance, and the broad toe box is ideal for endurance activities because it allows the forefoot to expand naturally. A tailored instep locks the foot securely in place to minimize foot movement, reducing friction. The Perpetuum last works great on your feet all day, whether running, hiking, or standing.
