It may seem early, but this is the time of year I start looking for my winter boots. You know if you go to any store there are constant reminders that the holidays and winter are coming. And the reality is, you wont be able to find boots or winter jackets when you really need them. However, I always run into a problem finding boots. You see, it seems that the only options for boots are cute, but uncomfortable and have absolutely no support or tread. And if you’ve ever been through a Midwestern winter – you want at least tread on the bottom of your boots!
Because I’ve been looking for boots that fit everything I wanted for a while now, I actually found Jambu last year. When I reached out to them to see if they wanted to work together on a review, they offered some of their brand new Arctic winter boots to review and a pair to give away. The Arctic boots are made with Vegan leather, use recycled material and even come packaged in completely recyclable packaging. Besides being cute, they’re the perfect pair of boots to help you make it through the upcoming winter.
One of the first things I’m looking for when I look for new boots ever year (the salt and snow take their toll!) is tread. I know I mentioned that it was important before – but I refuse to buy a pair of boots without any tread on the bottom. A few years back, in a pair of good boots I hit a patch of black ice and actually dislocated my knee cap. Since then, I’ve been on a mission to find boots that would not only keep my feet and socks dry but help me make it through the ice and snow. I’ve tried everything from the spikes you strap on your boots (and fell once I went inside), to other boots with any tread I could find. More often than not, I’d have to shop in the Men’s department to find some that would have a decent amount of tread for traction on the bottom. The Arctic boots from Jambu not only have tread on the bottom, but enough that you can see the deep grooves in the bottom. The bottom features their Hyper Grip collection to help you go from inside to outside and beyond.
And inside, Jambu worries about the comfort of the wearer. You wont have a hard insole that will leave you blisters. Instead you find a memory foam footbed and the inside is lined completely with a faux fur lining. Not only will you get support you need, but you will also have warm toes while you’re out and about.

While I’m not excited about the upcoming winter weather, I am excited to have my beautiful Arctic boots on hand. The first couple times I put them on, they were a bit tight at first but after breaking in they’re extremely comfortable. After a little more breaking in, they’ll be ready for boot socks and the upcoming snowy weather.
