Ice Rink Tested. Bangor Boots

Looking for large size boots to tackle the harshest winter weather? Take a look at the Columbia Bangor Omni-Heat, available from Walktall in sizes 12 and above. This great-looking boot was performance tested on a German ice rink and provides advanced traction on ice and snow.

On September 29th, 2017, the Bangor boot was tested at Zusammenarbeit Ice Rink near Bern in Germany. The event was dubbed the ‘Ice Walk’ and this astonishing boot was demonstrated to provide traction on the extremely slippery, unblemished surface of the ice.

This remarkably capable boot is the result of a unique partnership between Columbia Sportswear and Michelin.
