I like playing in the snow, but I hate being cold, especially when my feet are cold, no fun. Columbia's latest boot the Bugathermo is heated by rechargeable batteries and is pretty damn cool, read on for details.
Built with Columbia's most advanced technical winter boot tooling, with an Omni-Tech waterproof-breathable upper and Techlite lightweight cushioning footbeds and midsoles, the Thermo features built-in rechargeable batteries and electronic controls that provide three temperature settings for maximum protection from the cold. On the low setting, heating pads located under the ball of the foot deliver warmth for 8 hours; on high, expect 3 hours of heat where your foot needs it most. With a lightweight waterproof thermal rubber shell and rustproof alloy gaiters, the Bugaboot Thermo is ready for serious mountain trekking, snowmobiling, ski lift operation, or Arctic exploration. Combine these features with Bugaboot's trusted durability, 200g Thinsulate Insulation and Omni-Grip traction, and you may very well have the greatest winter boot to walk the earth.
