Kamik has been around for over a 100 years manufacturing performance footwear, developing exclusive technologies and it is all done in the US and Canada. Kamik remains a family owned and operated company today and its mission of commitment, respect, and sustainability. This is Kamik’s legacy. Kamik works everyday to minimize their environmental footprint and one example is they make their Zylex® liners from 77% – 97% recycled water bottles. Their Rubber boots and boot bottoms are 100% recyclable. Kamik realizes that recycling is one of the easiest ways they can remain environmentally friendly so a lot of their products are made from recyclable materials, and they’re committed to making recycling part of every day.
Kamik offers rain boots, winter boots and hiking boots for everyone from toddler’s to adults. For review purposes I chose a pair of the Kamik Momentum Boots in Black, these are part of their Peak line of boots. The first thing that I thought of when I saw these boots was how gorgeous they are. Second thing was how well made they are, these boots are rugged and heavy duty including features such as 3M Thinsulate Foam Liner that traps body heat and it delivers warmth nearly two times more effectively than down or other synthetic insulations. Back when I lived in the Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan I remember that although I was wearing snow boots, I still had to put on layers of socks to keep warm, that is not the case with these Kamik boots utilizing 3M Thinsulate, one pair is all that is needed.
When you are out in the snow, walking through slush and water the last thing you want to happen is to get wet feet and in the frigid cold this could cause some major issues. These boots are waterproof seam sealed. This technology makes boots practically impenetrable to snow and moisture without adding any extra weight to the footwear. By specially treating their leathers and nylons, then using waterproof tapes and sealants to cover every seam, it’s like feet are wrapped in a cocoon. So they stay safe and dry. See all of the features below.
