Description
Back in 2018 we realized that something was missing from our footwear collection - a warm, comfortable, durable, and water resistant winter boot - so after months of development and testing we arrived at the Freeman winter boot. First and foremost the Freeman is incredibly warm - it is fully lined with a curly merino wool shearling - this shearling is light, soft, and extremely warm for it's weight. Next, the Freeman is crafted from Horween's superlative Chromexcel leather - highly water-resistant, durable, and easy to care for. Lastly, the sole unit on this boot is so supportive and grippy it can pull double-duty as a light duty hiker. We combined a leather midsole with a storm welt with a supportive foam midsole wedge and the Vibram Christy Arctic Grip. Vibram's Arctic Grip outsoles provide superior traction on wet ice and snow. You won't find a sole better suited to the elements than this. The Freeman is truly the last winter boot you'll ever need.

Hopeful

They look good, probably will not need much break in. Haven't worn them much, but the Horween CXL leather in these seems sped'd a little thinner than normal, making them very flexible. Nice. The merino lining is very well done. With the arctic grip sole they should be a very useful and comfortable knock about in the snow boot. Not too heavy.

Freeman Boot

Very excited to try these in the winter. I really like that they don't look bulky, you can't tell that they are lined by looking at them.

Come on Winter

All around, these are very well built boots and I'm looking forward to putting them through the paces this winter. The natural chromexcel is breaking nicely, wool lining is comfy, laces are on another level, and I have high expectations for the sole.

A couple of caveats:

1. Sizing is interesting. I ended up true to size on these and 1/2 size down on the Knox boot.

2. The tongue gusset goes up to about the 3rd eyelet, not nearly high enough given the intended use.

3. Pull tab would be nice.

Solid Snow Boot

I'd definitely recommend these as a winter boot option to fill that gap. There is no doubt these are a dedicated winter boot - the shearling covers top to toe and the vibram outer sole combined with this midsole is soft, comfortable and perfectly suited for the icy months. The height is great, they look good while worn with jeans or chino pant. They resemble some winter work boots I remember my Grandfather wore at his cottage in Canada when I was a child.

I ordered a half size up due to the merino as well as the socks I will wear with them are very heavy weight. I'm not qualified to advise on sizing however they are quite a robust boot so they may or may not be built slightly larger volume to accommodate the merino. Maybe I could have gotten away with my regular size but I cannot confirm that.

At the end of the day I'm glad I bought some.

I will take these off and slip into my Gilman Camp Mocs
