Footwear: Urban winter shoes with felt and Terra Care® leather

The Cold Killer

Kiruna, the northernmost city in Sweden, serves not only as the namesake for the new VAUDE winter footwear series. Weather-wise, there are also strong leanings toward the Scandinavian winter. With insulating felt materials, premium TerraCare® eco-leather and thermal PrimaLoft® linings, UBN Kiruna Mid boots defy winter while sporting compelling eco-friendliness as well.

Of course, you don’t have to travel to northern Lapland to be able to appreciate the advantages of these warm winter boots from VAUDE. Snow, slush and icy temperatures are also to be found in our central European winters as well. No problem for the UBN Kiruna though, (UBN, by the way, stands for our Urban Line), which are available in men’s, women’s and also children’s versions.

In addition to being absolutely comfortable to wear, the UBN Kiruna Mid flaunts the environmentally friendly components that make this urban winter footwear so special for contemporary times – and bestow them with VAUDE’s coveted Green Shape label. Robust Terracare® leather is made by the German brand Heinen – ranking among the world’s best leather brands in terms of quality, and is tanned in accordance with the highest environmental standards. The integrated felt made with recycled materials insulates in icy temperatures. In the women's models, the tall felt upper can be folded down for an optional style.  

The integrated Ceplex Green membrane keeps feet dry and ensures good breathability. Thanks to a comfortable EVA midsole, you can be on the go comfortably all day long. The Ortholite® soles are removable and are made of recycled polyester and 25% bio-based castor oil (Eco Plush PU foam). Whether snow, slush or rain is waiting at your door - the rubber outsole with a winter tread provide good traction for increased safety on winter surfaces. 

VAUDE will offer men’s and women’s versions of the environmentally friendly winter footwear UBN Kiruna Mid in the colors Phantom Black and Brown Deer, starting in Autumn 2017.

Kids UBN Kiruna – Always one step ahead of the cold!

VAUDE has crafted a Kiruna version for children as well. Whether stomping through puddles on the way to kindergarten or having a snowball fight on the playground –children simply need warm, dry feet when it’s cold outside. These warmly insulated children's winter boots made of leather and felt are waterproof and are perfect for the daily life of active kids thanks to their casual-urban look. Thanks to a high shaft and waterproof membrane, wetness stays outside. The PrimaLoft® Eco lining consists of 90% recycled material that keeps kids’ feet warm. The comfortable Ortholite® insoles are made of environmentally friendly Eco Plush foam and 50% recycled polyester. The premium leather comes from Germany and is manufactured under the highest environmental standards. All in all, VAUDE's high-performance children’s footwear is characterized by premium materials, a child-friendly fit as well as an environmentally friendly production.
