Constrictor Icegrip Warm GTX
FOOTWEAR AWARD FW 23/24
Statement from the jury: This high-cut, lightweight winter boot has proven to be extremely warm thanks to the PrimaLoft insulation material and the waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex membrane. Material-wise, this boot contains a high percentage of recycled materials. The Vibram Arctic Grip outsole is designed to provide grip on slippery surfaces. The high shaft of the boot gives the ankles plenty of stability. There is a large loop on the back of the shaft that makes it easy to put the boot on, and a thick bar that makes it easy to take the boot off. The Viking Constrictor IceGrip Warm GTX has proven itself as a solid winter boot for demanding conditions.
