THE SITUATION: While spending a day on the slopes is about as much fun as you can have in the winter, taking off your ski boots at the end of the day produces a moment of relief that can’t be beat. So why ruin that feeling by putting on a pair of cold, bulky boots?
A SOLUTION: The North Face has created a combo slipper/shoe that can be worn outside and offers insulated and cozy comfort in the lodge or walking around town. The high-traction rubber outsole means you can walk around outside in comfort without slipping.
THE DETAILS: The ThermoBall insulation — the upper resembles a puffy coat — provides plenty of warmth. The shoes are compressible, so they’re easy to toss in a bag. They’re also great for winter camping, or even lounging around the house to keep those toes warm in the evening. The construction is solid, with a durable and water-resistant upper made from 100 percent recycled materials, while the outsole features 40 percent recycled rubber. And after an evening in these shoes, you'll be fully recovered for another day on the slopes.
