We all like a good pair of winter boots, but not everyone likes a pair that goes halfway to the knee. That’s where Merrell comes in. Merrell is known a lot more for their nimble, lightweight ankle boots than anything too bulky, and the Thermo Adventure Winter Boots follow in that vein. They’ve got a waterproof shell with a suede leather upper and an impermeable membrane inside, that keeps water and moisture away from your feet. 200g of M Select WARM insulation ensures your feet are nice and toasty in cold and snow.
The shoe construction is comfortable and agile, too, with a cushioned EVA midsole, as well as an air cushion in the heel that absorbs shocks and adds stability to your step as you run and jump over tough terrain. And the sole is made of Vibram Arctic Grip, which gives killer grip on wet, slippery surfaces, rocks, and snow.
You can grab a pair of Merrell Thermo Adventure’s for less than $100 right now, which is a pretty solid steal for a shoe of this price. They’re quintessential Merrell; light, nimble and good-looking. A pair weighs 2.5 pounds (that’s 1 lb, 4 oz per foot) and you’re guaranteed to keep solid footing on any terrain this winter. Your feet will thank you, too.
