Designing the Better Boot
Update on the new Northwoods Boot
Kudos to the SDC community for their help in designing this new boot!/J. Bergemann
Thanks to all the input from the folks at Sleddogcentral.com, our new 'soft boot' is ready to got to work on your feet when the temps plummet below freezing.
The NorthWoods Boot is part boot, part sandal, and part shaggy land mammal. We start with a standard pac boot liner, and work out from there. The soles are 100% post consumer tire rubber, nearly a 1/4" thick with a raised dot tread. They're tough enough for use on rock or pavement, but flexible for movement and traction. Best of all, when you wear them out we can resole them. The tooling leather mid sole and supple Bison leather lowers move and flex with your foot to ensure comfort and enhance the crucial circulation of blood. We build 4 layer, dual density foam insoles with arch supports, and metatarsal pads to cushion every step.
Choose from a list of fabrics for the voluminous uppers, then request the boot height that suits your needs. Each boot has parachute cord laces with removable cord locks to adjust the tension in the foot and along the legs. Leave the cord locks in place for convenient speed lacing, or remove them for manual lacing with knots. A shock cord closure at the cuff seals out snow and drafts.

It's rare to find a company in that lets its customers do the design work!
The most frequent request we receive is for better footwear.
While the initial response has been grand, I'm not really satisfied that
they've finished their evolution.
Here's what we've learned.
That said, tell us what we've missed.
We hope to improve our products with your help.
