Whether at home in the winter or when travelling to colder climes, we’ve all experienced the regret of wearing boots that leave us dangerously slipping and sliding across icy surfaces because they lack grip; or simply don’t provide enough insulation to keep our toes toasty when the temperatures drop.

Merrell’s Thermo Freeze 8" Waterproof boots promise to stand-up to even the iciest winter conditions. They’re lined with 400 grams of M Select™ WARM insulation to keep your feet cozy, even when you’re outside for long periods. This synthetic lining is designed to effectively retain body heat, without adding unnecessary bulk to the boots.

The M Select™ DRY impermeable membrane prevents water from getting in, while also wicking away moisture from your feet and allowing them to breathe. The boots also feature Merrell’s Arctic Grip technology, which is made for keeping you steady on the snowiest and iciest surfaces. Pack these for your winter hikes and excursions, whether you’re heading just outside the city or across the world.
