Khombu Review

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

KHOMBU was launched in 1968 as a waterproof brand designed for outdoor enthusiasts. KHOMBU is actually an ice passage in the Himilayas. As the brand matured, the Apres ski industry embraced the styling and functionality of the product and KHOMBU became very popular during the 70’s and 80’s with ski resorts. As the brand continued to grow and expand it’s product line, KHOMBU found its niche in footwear, department and specialty athletic stores as a highly functional, fashionable, affordable brand. KHOMBU has also expanded into year round product, setting trends in categories such as rain and outdoor, interpreting this into functional lifestyle product for the whole family.

KHOMBU is able to hit upon numerous categories of fashion and trend. The classics cover the basic styles and entry price point. Their fashion product captures the boot trends of the season while providing a functional product. The apres product is faster, fun, usage of new material and fur in many cases, very novel styles. Outdoor product takes the trends from hiking and athletic and applies them to functional winter active styles.

KHOMBU boots are weatherproof and waterproof – all categories and styles are guaranteed leak proof. They use membrane technology in most styles and waterproof materials to make their boots leak proof. They use different weights of thermolite insulation to obtain a cold rating. All boots are cold rated to a minimum of –20 and some styles are cold rated to –40. They use molded foot beds with anti-bacteria, wicking, breathable, and odor absorbing qualities.

I was so excited when I saw the Solar 2 Boot ($150) in the Fall Collection that was sent to me. Boots are a winter must, but finding comfort without sacrificing style can be a impossible. Yes, comfort meets style in these boots. These are a must have cozy comfort boot. Put skinny jeans on, and you’ll be wishing you could wear these fashionable boots in 80 degree weather.

Let it Snow! These boots feature waterproof suede, POLIYOU insole with thermolite, moisture wicking, fur lining, non-slip outsole, and are anti-fungal, breathable. fast drying, shock absorbing, insulated, and are cold rated to -20.

Get cozy in fur! It's all about the fur for me this winter. I want the perfect touch of fur to complete my outfit. Lace it...a fashion trend! The laces in the back come to the front to be tied. These boots have glamorous details that will always make you stand out in a crowd. You can strut your stuff by getting glam with these sexy and sleek boots. Put you best foot forward and order KHOMBU boots.
