The North Face Men's Chilkat Tech Gore-tex Apres Ski Boots has a streamlined design that eliminates the bulk of a traditional shell boot without compromising durability and protection. It uses GORE-TEX® for best in class waterproof protection against inclement weather. It has a stylish and durable leather upper and an abrasion resistant synthetic half shell. A TPU shank supports your arch and resists torsion on rough terrain. This boot also uses the exclusive Vibram® IceTrek™ rubber outsole for superior traction in the cold.
