Adidas Jake Boot at Windward Boardshop

Adidas Jake Boot

The folks at Adidas understand that sometimes winter brings some unsavory weather. That’s why they built the Adidas Jake boot, which keeps your feet warm and dry without sacrificing your usual style. Don’t be that dude in the weird Sorrel rip offs. The Jake Boot looks and feels like a casual pair of high tops but works like a much tougher winter shoe, protecting you from Mother Nature without all the fluff. Weather-resistant full grain leather upper, gusseted tongue, metal d-rings & lace hooks and a tough, durable outsole. All the benefits of a winter boot without the ridiculous look. Thank you Adidas.

It’s a jacket. it’s a softshell. Wait…it’s both! The Burton Women’s Soteil Softshell has a Dryride outer with a DWR coating to keep you dry on a wet morning hike or a rainy day in the city. The longer fit adds some additional warmth and the oversized hood keeps you cozy up top. Can you snowboard in this jacket? Sure, on a warmer day the Soteil Softshell can handle some runs but we think she works best layered up for city wear.
