ULU - "Tupik" men's (and ladies??) bison leather/shearling lined winter boot.
Another really "Special Buy". But these will be the very last!
I thought we would never see any more of the men's ULU boots ... but I found an east coast group that had bought out the last of this style, still have some inventory and were willing to sell them. This one, the "TUPIK" is a little different than the ones that were my favorite, the "ANUI". Still very nice. very servicable (and I have already pulled out a pair for me for this winter's "field work").
Bison leather upper, lined with 100% natural New Zealand sheep shearling wool, EVA midsole and dual-density rubber outsole with mountain bike inspired design. Anatomically correct last for foot health. Plastic shank for added stability, support and proper flex. Removable molded footbed for greater comfort. Twin elk leather pull loops. Easy slip on and off.
This Tupik one is about 3 inches lower than the ANUI, wider at the top making it easy to pull on and off, an elastic side gusset both sides and a bit softer skin than the Anui. They do run just a bit short; my normal is a 10 but the 11 works better.
As to the ideas that they might fit some women, the 9's would work for a woman's 10 and 11 ... but only if your foot is medium width or wider. There is also a extra insole ... or one of our bison fiber insole that will take up some of the slack if needed. Yes, they could work well.
Great for snow less than a foot deep. Over that .... just saying
