45 North Winter Boots Have Arrived!!!

The time has come, winter is almost here! But that doesn't mean that cycling season is over! Stop in the shop today and check out our full line of 45 North winter boots. We have both the Wolvhammer and Fasterkatt models in stock and ready to warm up your feet!



Our vision for the Wölvhammer transcended traditional cycling footwear and originated from the conceptual standpoint of a mountaineering boot. On the inside we max out the insulation package with 200g Thinsulate on the forefoot and NASA-approved aerogel in the insole to block cold cleats. On the outside, 1000D CORDURA® and waterproof-breathable Sympatex block moisture and manage perspiration. For deep snow, easily add knee-high gaiters using the dedicated hook on the toe box. And of course, the Vibram sole is ready for any SPD-compatible cleat of your choice. These are the finest winter cycling shoes ever made.



Designed specifically for wet winter cycling and cyclocross athletes, the Fasterkatt is the ultimate solution for water resistance, moisture regulation, and comfort in a performance cycling shoe. Constructed with a waterproof membrane and rubberized textile shell that extends above the ankle, the Fasterkatt delivers unrivaled weather protection in the wettest and muddiest of conditions. Our proprietary insole is built with arch support and uses heat-reflective aluminum with wool felt to keep feet warm. The Fasterkatt is also the first cycling shoe to use microglass rubber technology to enhance surface traction while walking or running on slippery surfaces. Say goodbye to shoe covers. Say hello to Fasterkatt.
