The escalate is the latest addition to the ease series of boots from Baffin. Like the series name, these boots slip on and off with ease. Temperature rated from 50 degrees Fahrenheit to minus/negative 22 degrees Fahrenheit, these boots are perfect for those frosty days. Easy to pack, easy to wear and easy to use--breeze through this winter with the escalate<br>Twenty-five years ago Baffin Footwear began manufacturing insulated and non-insulated footwear products. While traditional molded boots are suitable for some conditions, they are not ideal for cold temperatures. Baffin combines leading molding technology with a foam-based inner boot system, which creates a hybrid style of high-performance footwear. This equates to more warmth, better fit, and superior comfort. Baffin boots are different than most shoes and work boots because the sole and midsole are molded to the base in one continuous process. The sole itself is a marvel of modern engineering because it is made up of several advanced thermo-set polymers that are combined together to achieve the right balance of warmth, protection, low weight and grip. Baffin is dedicated to offering boots with functionality and fashion, while still maintaining their legendary performance.
