Gear Review: Kamik KeystoneG Men’s Boot

Reputation and reliability are always strong points when it comes to choosing the best in outdoor footwear. A company with huge amounts of both, as well as a long history, is Kamik. A family business, they’ve been around for more than 100 years manufacturing high quality outdoor footwear for U.S. and Canadian markets, and their track record and experience is second to none. One of their flagship products is the KeystoneG. This is a tough snow boot, with ‘rugged’ written all over it.

The KeystoneG is fully waterproof leather and suede uppers simply shrug off the damp, ably assisted by the durable external synthetic rubber shell. The boot’s internal and removable 8mm lining soaks up the moisture and disperses it, guaranteeing your feet stay dry and comfortable.
