This outstanding new footwear collection by The North Face x Publish Brand is named “Midnight in Antarctica,” and it represents the very first partnership between these two famous brands. The line comprises three distinct offerings in hi-top and low-top variants, as well as a practical outdoor slipper. Each model boasts an elegant navy colorway, which is fitting since we’re talking about Antarctica-inspired products.
The first shoe is the North Face Ultra Extreme II GTX Midnight, which offers lightweight protection as well as exceptional coverage. This is a waterproof, insulated winter hiking shoe that impresses with a breathable Gore-Tex membrane, Vibram Icetrek soles and snug Duratherm insulation.
The second shoe is the North Face Back To Berkeley Boot Midnight, which represents an outstanding mix between a classic design and contemporary technologies. Waterproof and completely insulated, this boot is perfect for outdoor activities such as hiking, especially since it also comes with a durable TNF Winter Grip rubber outsole with IcePick lugs. The compression-molded EVA midsole and compression-molded TPU heel clip also deserve a mention, of course.
Finally, we should tell you a bit about the North Face Traction Mule II Midnight. This shoe comes with PrimaLoft insulation complemented by a high-traction rubber outsole, which means that it is perfect for walking around the camp. Its water resistant upper blocks rain and snow partially in order to improve breathability, while the insulation that we mentioned before traps hot air while minimizing heat loss.
