On the go naturally. Because the Kiruna Mid is not only totally comfortable, it's also made from eco-friendly materials that make this city winter footwear exceptional. Its robust cowhide leather from the German brand Heinen is considered to be among the best quality worldwide; integrated felt partially made from recycled materials provides additional warmth in icy weather.
An integrated breathable membrane ensures dry feet, and comfortable EVA midsoles ensure comfortable walking the whole day through. The insole is removable. And it doesn't matter whether you're walking through snow, mud or rain – the rubber outsoles with winter traction offer good footing for higher safety on wintery asphalt.

The VAUDE label "PVC-free" means that this product is manufactured 100% free of PVC (polyvinyl choride). It looks like tarpaulin canvas, is just as durable and waterproof, but is made from PU (polyurethane) coated fabric rather than PVC. PVC largely contains plasticizers (phthalates) that are considered to be harmful to your health.
