Nokian boots are trusted by those who value comfort, warmth and high build quality. They have been manufacturing boots since 1892 so are deeply entrenched in the industry. To quote Nokian:
"ultimately it is our long experience of the Nordic weather that guarantees the high quality and usability of our rubber boots".
Nokian currently produces specialty boots for the Finnish military, amongst several others. As one would expect, these boots are built to high standards, are very hard wearing and provide lots of protection and warmth. Secondary users now include ice fishermen, hunters and orienteers. In other words, these are boots for tough conditions and tough daily use. With the addition of Hai colours range, scope of use has now extended to gardeners, festival goers and hikers/walkers.
There are several models and colours to choose from, depending on planned activity. All boots in the range are waterproof and feature tricot linings which add warmth to the boots. For extreme conditions; we recommend the full felt lined versions which feature an incredibly thick felt wool lining which is bound to keep your feet warm. The felt linings are removable, extending the season of use into Summer and Spring.
Material: Each pair of Nokian boots is made by hand from natural rubber material which is impermeable and temperature stable from -50oC to +50oC. Being made by hand means quality is maintained across the range. Being made of a natural rubber compound means that the boots are largely biodegradable so have a smaller environmental impact.
Design: Having won several awards for design, the Nokian range represent Finnish design and design application. They look unique and feature some design flourishes.
Construction: Unlike many other wellington style boots on the market, Nokian boots feature a durable subframe which provides excellent support and rigidity whilst walking. The deep tread pattern is designed to prevent the accumulation of debris meaning traction does not become hindered i.e. better grip.
