What do Chewbacca and shoes have in common, you say? Why, plenty! Chewbacca has seen a lot in his 200 years and is well-equipped to offer his recommendations for winter boots and footwear your entire family will appreciate. His extensive travels throughout the galaxy make him an expert on the perfect footwear for your family.
Hoth-Worthy Boots for Men
Chewbacca knows you’ll need boots to withstand conditions as harsh as the icy winds and storms on Hoth. He’s got a few picks from Northside, a company offering rugged, reliable, and affordable footwear choices for the whole family.
The first boot Chewy recommends for Hoth-like extreme winter conditions are Men’s ‘Everest’ Winter Boots from Northside. Named after the most rugged mountain around, they live up to their name by providing an aggressive tread outsole to keep you sure-footed in slippery conditions. The warm construction is designed to keep your feet toasty and warm.
If you need an additional pair of boots for those icy treks, consider the Men’s ‘Alberta 2’ Winter Boot, also from Northside. With a waterproof shell bottom, your feet will remain dry. And with Thermolite insulation rated to 200g (-25F degrees), you won’t even need Chewbacca to sit on your tootsies to warm them up after your mission is complete. The removable polypropylene liner with heat reflecting foil bottom will keep them warm just fine.
Loyalty and Durability for the Ladies
Chewbacca is fiercely loyal to Leia, and he wants nothing but the best for her. Despite any obstacles, this dynamic team remains steadfast when accomplishing daring rescues and overcoming challenges. He’d want your boots to do the same.
Columbia is known for durable shoes that withstand all sorts of trying conditions. The Women's 'Minx Shorty Omni-Heat' Boot from Columbia features 200g of insulation, rated to keep your feet totally warm up to -25F degrees. Chewbacca certainly appreciates the waterproof woven synthetic textile with faux-fur collar and tongue lining.
If you’re looking for something more casual, Chewbacca thinks the design of these Blowfish Women's Forta Booties is out of this world. The combination of buckle strap accents and side zip closure are perfect for a Leia and Ren-inspired style.
Kids Can Use the Force, Too
Chewbacca is no stranger to playing games. And who doesn’t love a great round of Dejarik? Just don’t forget to let the Wookiee win! Chewbacca recommends some kids’ boots for playing around the galaxy.
Although snowball fights didn’t quite occur on Hoth, the Death Star sure does look like a snowball to Chewy. And kids need sturdy boots if they’re going to build a snowball fort. Columbia Kids 'Newton Ridge' Boots feature a waterproof PU leather and aggressive Omni-Grip soles for protection and stability.
Kenneth Cole® Reaction Kids ‘Danica Mix’ Boot features full side zipper closure for easy on and off and decorative harness and wrap-around sashing that reminds Chewy of Rey’s belt details. Perfect for scavenging treasures or hanging out at cantinas, the smooth textile lining provides all-day comfort.
Even if you don’t need shoes with great tread to keep from slipping when you’re chasing after Storm Troopers, Chewbacca knows you could benefit from some great winter boot recommendations. To check out more boots, browse our selection at SRI Shoe Warehouse.
