Viking Hero GTX – Ultimate wintertime safety and warmth

Viking Outdoor Footwear has taken warmth, comfort and reflective safety to the next level with the new kids winter boot Hero GTX and has been awarded with the ISPO Award 2019 for its achievement.

When the dark Nordic winter sets in, parents and kids typically have different priorities when it comes to children’s footwear. Parents value warmth and safety in the dark. Kids want style and comfort. For AW19, they can both have it all.

Viking Outdoor Footwear has created Hero GTX, a modern and sleek styled kids winter boot with premium insulation, waterproofness and cushioning – as well as 360-degrees of reflectivity.

Reflective details everywhere

This unique winter boot is made from durable synthetic materials that stand up to everyday active use and support small feet well. Inspired by the stars at night, a reflective mesh pattern with a TPU support frame, wraps around the boot providing visibility in every direction.

Hero also features toe and heel reinforcements as well as easy to adjust Velcro straps that are covered with a long-lasting, reflective coating that illuminates when shined on in the dark. The result is Viking’s most visible and modern kids winter boot to date.

Waterproof warmth and comfort

For warm and comfortable feet in snowy conditions, Hero comes with a waterproof GORE-TEX membrane that is also highly breathable for optimal moisture wicking performance. A soft lining throughout the entire boot provides premium insulation, keeping warmth inside when needed most.

Hero features a children’s last designed to fit most small feet well, while allowing the toes to move freely. Underneath, the boot is equipped with a rubber sole with integrated EVA that provides the best combination of cushioning, grip and durability, regardless of the activity level.

Hero is all about safety, comfort and great looks – things both parents and kids will love.
