Looking for a great holiday gift for the outdoor enthusiast in your life (or for yourself!)? Check out these great boots from Merrell and Patagonia to cozy up the holidays.
Merrell's Tempest High is high on the hip-meter. Great for partaking in snowy revelry in waterproof, warm comfort. Not you average snow boot, it maintains decadent warmth with 200 grams of low-bulk insulation and an insulating fleece lining. It also keeps feet dry thanks to a waterproof breathable membrane. Cushioning comfort from the Air Cushion in the heel and stride-specific QForm Comfort will make her jump for joy. Offered in Black, Huckleberry, Brindle and Silver Birch.
If you crave the outside even when everyone else retreats inside to escape wild and wooly weather, Merrell's Graz Waterproof fits right in. Waxy, water repellent leather uppers stand out with style, and stand up to cold with multiple thermal features: fleece lining, 200 grams of PrimaLoft insulation, ColdProof Ortholite insulating footbed and an ActiveHeat reflective insole buried inside high-performance cushioning and support. Siped soles with 5mm lugs and durable, secure lacing over a bellows tongue give you top to bottom comfort and control. Offered in Brown/Stone.
Minimalist and eco-chic, the Patagonia Bandha Tie keeps a low profile but is never humdrum and the faux shearling lining keeps feet toasty warm. A recycled rubber heel (20% recycled) provides traction and a cushioned heel strike. Offered in Marsh Green or Dried Vanilla.
For the guys, the stable Das Boot Mid keeps your feet warm and dry amid frozen crud. The waterproof snow boot sports a coated TexTuff leather rand/upper (recycled) for heavy protection that's still light on your feet. 100% recycled polyester mesh provides long term durability. PrimaLoft Eco insulation and Polartec 200 lining lend warmth and comfort.
