Kodiak Thane Boot Review
Kodiak Men’s Thane Hiking Boot
- Waterproof leather and canvas upper with sealed seams
- Waterproof membrane construction
- Removable leather memory foam insole
- Microfiber lining
- Natural leather welt with slip resistant lug rubber outsole
One of the main reason why we loved this boot is its construction. The KODIAK Men’s Thane Boot is constructed like a beautiful pair of high priced boot. The makers behind these boots gave attention to the tiniest of details.
It also has the exact same type of fit. Because of the full leather welt construction, and it’s slip resistant hard rubber sole, there is going to be a break in period. Do keep that in mind when you decide to buy these boots.
For utmost comfort, you are going to have to break this boot and get this shaped to your foot. Just like any other heritage boot, you get the feeling of something that is handmade and you need to give it time to adjust to your foot.
Another nice detail we would like to point out is the waterproof leather. It is a tape sealed, membrane waterproof leather boot. They also used a really nice canvas type material that is mixed with the leather. It looks more like a waxed cotton type material that gives the boot a more stylish look.
Ever looked at those vintage type boots that is unlike any other boots out there? Give the Thane enough time and you’ll have yourself a vintage type boot. The leather, the canvas, the whole boot as it gets older will just look better.
Like we said, if you want a unique looking boot that doesn’t belong to any other boot out there, the Kodiak Boots Thane is just that type of boot if you wear it for a long time.
Inside The Boot
The best part is about to come, inside the Kodiak Thane For Men Boots, what you’ll find is microfiber. Typically, you would find microfiber material in casual boots and in a lot of women’s boots.
It kind of an odd material to use it in a boot like the KODIAK Thane, kind of made sense. Why? Because it’s more appealing to the younger crowd. It is very soft, feels good against the skin and also feels really good against your socks. There is more this Kodiak Thane Boot Review that you should definitely want to check out.
This boot doesn’t come with any insulating property. It has a wicking property which is why they used a microfiber inside. Microfiber is really good for wicking away moisture. Don’t worry, it does have a really nice feel to it. Check out our other insulated boots.
Deep down at the bottom, you’ll find a memory foam leather lined insole. If it’s your introduction to heritage style boots, this insole adds a nice little touch. We all know memory foam doesn’t hold up that good especially if you are continuously using your boots, however starting out, combining all these products together seems pretty nice.
Below The Insole
Yup, we are not finished yet. There is more to come. Below the insole what you’ll find is a hard footboard. It gives you the full heritage feel and fit.
To those who are still with us, reading, we have gone back to the construction section again. Because of the leather welt and hard slip-resistant rubber sole and adding the hard footboard, you really need to break in these boots.
You need to get this one shaped to your foot. The memory foam insole, microfiber, and the leather liner will help you along the process of breaking in. Don’t rush in the process though.
Whatever size you need, more than likely or not, you can just buy your size when you go to order a pair of these.
Remember what we told you about the makers of these boots paying attention to details, well it just so happens that they did. One of our favorite features is the boot pull.
The way they put the boot pull into the collar between the microfiber and they ran it down is simply amazing. This isn’t one of those boot pulls that is going to stop your pants and always bunched up on top of your boots. We must admit it, this is a very nice way of putting a boot pull.
Ignore this section if you don’t like speed laces. But a review is a review, and we are always unbiased in our reviews. This boot lacks speed laces. The current lace setup is fine, but we think it’s nice to have speed laces on a boot.
Sometimes it so happens that you are in hurry and want to take your boots out, but you don’t want to bend down and pull laces out. Speed laces come in very handy.
If this is your introduction to boots, if this is the first pair that you buy, we think having lace holes all the way to the top is a great way for you to appreciate lacing your boot properly.
