If you’re looking for a no-nonsense winter boot designed to keep your feet warm while traipsing through the snow, look no further than the Teva Bormio. Whereas most winter boots tend to be heavy and awkward, Teva Bormio’s are exaclty the opposite. They’re light, they’re comfortable to hike in, yet they still offer 200g of Thinsulate insulation to keep your feet warm and toasty.
Helping you stay upright in slippery conditions, the Bormio’s feature a White Spider Rubber sole and a nylon shank to keep your feet stable. Up top, a waterproof leather upper and gusseted tongue keep water out, while all seams are sealed to provide another layer of protection. And from a comfort standpoint, the Bornio’s are outstanding, feeling more like a pair of hiking boots than a pair of winter boots. I’ve worn them on numerous excursions this winter, and they’ve done a fantastic job keeping my feet warm and comfortable even in sub-zero temps.
When you want a warm, lightweight and incredibly functional boot, the Teva Bormio fits the bill perfectly.

A look at the history of Teva
In 1984, a young Grand Canyon river guide revolutionized the footwear industry when he created the world’s first sports sandal. This idea soon spawned a brand, and the new adventure of Teva was born.
It’s been 25 years since we took our first step into the Grand Canyon, and not a moment has gone by that Teva (that’s “teh’-vah,” not “tee-vah”) hasn’t been hard at work developing products that enable and encourage your adventure. Of course, given our heritage, we have an obsession with water, and our passion lies in identifying and enhancing the areas in which water effects an adventure. To us, water presents a paradox. It is the source of a year-round playground, but it simultaneously poses a year-round problem. Anyone who has ever slipped on a patch of ice or been forced to deal with soaking wet socks can attest to this duality.
Essentially, Teva has two fundamental responsibilities: to play and to protect. We play in the water, but we also see the need to be protected from it. Our responsibility is to manage this delicate balance, so you can go forth without reservation. Armed with a quarter-century worth of knowledge and technology, we are dedicated to developing products that strike this balance to deliver the most out of your adventures.
