Pajar Men’s Boots and Shoes
Pajar excels at boots for men facing extremely cold climates. However, the company also offers options in regular shoes, sneakers and even sandals or slippers. Most of them look – and feel – good enough to wear out in the evening after tramping through snow all day. Here are just a few of samples of the styles available.
The Tuscan is an 8.5 inch lace-up boot featuring a plushy warm collar and removable memory foam midsole. Available in 3 colors, it is constructed of leather and oiled sued. But the highlight of this boot is the soft faux rabbit lining that will keep you amazingly warm and comfortable throughout the coldest days.
Completely waterproof, the Tuscan has a sturdy rubber outsole and can withstand temperatures of up to -30C/-22F.
Stylish enough to be featured in a fashion magazine, the Mirko is an 8 inch waterproof boot that is also tough enough to face up to severe cold as low as -74 degrees Celsius. Like other Pajar boots, all of the Mirko’s seams are tape-sealed and it has adhesive construction to maintain complete waterproofing.
Comfort is ensured by the removable memory foam insole. However, the Mirko also features the patented Iso-Lana mid-sole that consists of layers of felt, aluminum and wool separated by small air bubbles.
The Icepack is a 7 inch boot featuring a front zipper that allows you to get it on and off much faster than most other boots. A removable memory foam insole provides added comfort, padded insulated linings will keep you warm and the outsoles have a heavy-duty tread that will keep you steady on your feet.
A standout feature of these boots are the flip-out cleats on the soles to be used for walking on ice. These are extremely useful, but be forewarned that you want to be careful when walking indoors with them, because they can definitely scratch up your floors.
Super stylish and extremely practical mid-height 7 inch boot, the Baneis completely waterproof. The uppers are made from leather and nylon upper construction and feature a pull on loop for convenience. The double-stitched toecap and stabilizing lace-up vamp contribute to the attractive design, while the removable memory foam insole ensures all-day comfort.
The Bane can withstand temperatures of -30C/-22F and has a Snow Core outsole to provide the best traction control in any type of terrain.
Super Snow Boot
The 6.5 inch Super Snow boot consists of completely waterproof construction. The dyed mink lining ensures all the warmth you could ask for, while the removable felt insole allows you to remain comfortable even when spending long hours tramping through the snow.
An 8 inch boot available in 3 attractive color combinations, the Burman is completely waterproof. A plush shearling collar and removable memory foam insole provide luxurious comfort, while the duck-style toe and D-ring lacing offer a dash of style, as well as convenience.
Unfortunately, the sizing seems to be a little off on the Burmans. So it is suggested that you go up a full size when ordering.
The Viperis styled more like a sneaker than a boot, but it is far more stylish than most sneakers you will ever come across. However, they are every bit as functional as fashionable. The unusual crocodile patterned leather uppers will keep your feet dry and cozy, but also offer a comfortably flexible fit.
Surprisingly, the Viper also has hinged rings on the outsole that will allow you to flip it over and have access to metal studs that will give you an extremely secure grip on packed snow or ice. Just remember to flip the outsole back before going indoors, so that you don’t scratch up any floor.
Pajar Women’s Boots and Shoes
The women’s models from Pajar offer all you can want in a winter boot: extremely good protection from the cold, long-wearing comfort and striking style. The company actually seems to have ventured into an even wider range of designs than in the men’s styles, which is uncommon, to say the least.
Here are a few of the more popular designs, and what you need to know about them before you buy.
An 8.5 inch boot available in several colors, the Alina features a lace-up shaft with D-rings, two-tone laces and a faux-shearling lining. The removable memory foam insole ensures all-day comfort, while the lugged outsole provides superior traction.
The toebox of the Alina is a little narrow, resulting a slightly smaller fit. So you should probably order a size up.
The Gaetana is a 9 inch boot available in multiple colors. This comfy waterproof mid-calf boot features leather uppers with a faux shearling lining. The removable memory foam insole offers long-wearing comfort and the textured synthetic sole provides excellent traction.
Buyers have noted that these boots are comfortable right out of the box, plus they can be put on and off without doing up all of the laces every time. The Gaetana seem to run pretty true to size.
This mid-high 14 inch boot comes in 3 fabulous colors and they all make the same fabulous impression. The suede and tumbled leather uppers have D-ring lacing and a wool-blend lining.
With a molded memory foam foot bed and cemented rubber outsole, buyers gush about the comfort of these boots and say they walk with confidence right through slushy ankle-high puddles. However, while it seems to run true to size, some customers have complained about the ankles being loose, so if you have really thin ankles, you may want to think twice about these.
The Grip Boot is a strikingly attractive 13.5 inch waterproof boot with a heel that measures about 0.75 inches. Of synthetic and textile construction and with a removable insole, the Grip Boot is guaranteed to be comfortable in temperatures as low as -25. It is the perfect boot for when you want a hard-wearing footwear choice that offers safe, secure, and reliable protection against cold and snow.
Melissa Snow Boot
A gorgeous tall 16.5 inch boot available in several beautiful colors, the Melissafeatures a military inspired design with a series of fur trimmed straps buttoned down the shaft. A zipper along the back allows for easy on and off.
The uppers feature a water resistant nylon exterior with leather at the toe. The platform measures about 2 inches and has a traction sole.
Scarlet Tassle Tie Goat Hair Boot
Pajar offers a variety of fur boots, and the Scarlet Tassel Tie is one of the most attractive, no matter which of the several colors you choose. The fur on this 11 inch boot is irresistibly soft dyed goat hair.
The boot’s heel is about 2 inches high, and it offers a removable memory foam insole for added comfort. A drawstring tie is an eye-catching, as well as practical, addition. The thick rubber outsole provides superior traction and shock absorbency.
Customers rave about these, and have absolutely nothing to complain about.
The Insbrook is a taller 14 inch boot, available in 4 glorious colors of authentic dyed fox fur. With a 1.5 inch heel and rubber sole, the Insbrook has a removable memory foam insole for additional comfort.
This boot has easy to pull on and off, and does run true to size. However, no half sizes are available, so you may want to order up in order to leave room for thick socks.
An amazingly comfortable moccasin, the Manue is available in 3 colors, each with beading on top. The insole is removable with lots of cushioning.
The Manue is so lovely, comfortable and warm that customers often order more than one color. However, it does run small, so order at least one size up
Grace Casual Shoe
The Grace is a low-backed shearling lined shoe with stacked heel and rubber sole in a lovely cognac color. It is a warm, comfortable slide with lots of style. But it does run a little small, so order a size up.
Pajar has an amazing line of boots and shoes for men and women. They are as comfortable and stylish as they are warm and practical in frigidly cold temperatures. However, sizing can be a bit unpredictable, so you will want to check each model carefully before ordering.
