Ba mhaith liom a admháil, I’m a little disappointed that New York City’s weather has been mild this Fall.
No, I’m not a masochist. It’s that I’ve got the Kamik Coldcreek Tosaithe Winter – boots warm enough to do everything from shoveling snow to surviving the snowpocalypse.
These winter boots are fully waterproof, fleece insulated and 17.5 orlach ar airde, meaning you’ll be able to take on deep snow and the coldest temperatures. Kamik, a Canadian/American company has rated the Coldcreek boots at -40°F/-40°C.
While it hasn’t quite been -40°F yet here in New York, I’ve been able to ‘test-drive’ a pair of the Kamik Coldcreek in the color ‘olive’. Seo iad mo smaointe:
- Go hiomlán uiscedhíonach
- lomra lined
- Durable/high quality
- Tarraingt mór
- Déanta i Stáit Aontaithe Mheiriceá
An Coldcreek boots are made of RubberHe (Kamik’s rubber technology which is “50% lighter than natural rubber and 30% lighter than other synthetic rubbers”) and neoprene. The part which covers your foot is rubber, while the part which covers your calf is neoprene. The outsole has deep lugs keeping you from slipping when walking on ice or snow.
While I usually think of wetsuits when I think of neoprene, it makes perfect sense for the calf part of these boots to be made of the material. The neoprene used is insulated and waterproof, keeping not only your feet, but also your lower legs warm. At the top of the boots you’ll find elastic draw cords which can be tightened to keep snow and cold air out. The draw cord is large enough to be used with gloves on.

The Kamik Coldcreek are true to size and have a normal width. Tá mé méid 9 and there’s enough space in these boots for me to put on a thick pair of wool socks, my socks of choice being the Injinji Outdoor NuWool toe socks. That’s right – stocaí ladhar. Chomh maith leis sin, there’s room in the toe box for me to wiggle my toes a bit. The boots are comfortable even if you’re on your feet all day and they also have a removable foam insole.
Since these boots go up to your calves, you’ll need to know if your calves will fit inside the shaft. Maidir liom, the Kamik Coldcreeks fit great. I'ma méid bróg 9, 5’8″, 130 lb.. and don’t have the thickest calves. The shaft is roomy and I have space to tuck in my pants. If you have very big calves, you might want to size up, however for most normal calves, the boots should fit fine.
Teas agus uiscedhíonach:
The orange material that you see inside the boots is a fleece lining which goes from the top of the Coldcreeks all the way down to the toes. The insulation will keep the cold out, and these boots are rated at -40°F/-40°C.
I’ve stepped in puddles and have tested submerging these boots. Water won’t seep in and since these boots are calf length, it’s improbable that moisture will get in from the top.
Chomh luath agus teocht titim fiú níos ísle, I will update this review on how the Coldcreeks perform in heavy snow and subzero temperatures.
- Little / aon breathability
- Trom (4.5 lb feadh méid 9 péire de réir mo scála)
Tá mé aon delusions faoi 17 tosaithe orlach a bheith lightweight, but if you’re traveling with the Coldcreek boots, the weight and size may be a concern. These boots are not the most agile either, so if you’re looking for boots you can hike in or lighter weight boots, b'fhéidir gur mhaith leat a sheiceáil amach an Buataisí Lowa Oslo de na Blundstone Thermal boots.
Te, durable and made in America, an Coldcreek boots from Kamik are sure to keep you warm this winter and several winters to come. You’ll be able to travel in the coldest conditions, while supporting American jobs.
In addition the color ‘olive’ Tá mé athbhreithniú, you can also find the Coldcreek in dubh agus camo. These boots come at retail $180.
