Remember when your feet got wet, cold, and uncomfortable every time you trudged through snow and slush? Now you can make it a distant memory with the Intermediate Cold/Wet (ICW) Boot With GORE-TEX® Fabric — the boot that's been U.S. Army standard issue for soldiers stationed in cold weather regions since 1992. The ICW Boot has a GORE-TEX® lining that completely surrounds your foot, making a barrier that liquid water doesn't penetrate. Unlike typical all-leather boots, the ICW Boot doesn't need to be treated with 'waterproofing' polish or wax. The 10-inch-tall upper on the ICW Boot is all leather to give you durable wear resistance in abrasive conditions. Inside the boot is 200-gram insulation to keep your feet warm and comfortable. On the bottom is a polyurethane mid-sole and a durable lug rubber out-sole for excellent shock absorbency and traction. The ICW Boot comes with two sets of with removable insulation. If water saturates the inside of your boot from the top, you can simply remove the insulation for faster dry-out. Without the insulation, your boot will remain waterproof since the GORE-TEX® lining is part of the leather boot construction. The GORE-TEX® brand name is your assurance you're getting the right gear. Years of use and field testing have proven that products carrying the GORE-TEX® brand provide the best comfort and the best performance.
