Heres the newest model, back for more winter butt-kicking with a slightly higher cut for even more protection from the cold. Built with Columbias most advanced technical winter boot toolingwith a waterproof-breathable upper and a Techlite footbed and midsolethe 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.

Combine these features with Bugaboots trusted durability, 200g Thinsulate insulation and Omni-Grip traction, and you may very well have the greatest winter boot to walk the earth.
