45NRTH's vision for the Wlvhammer transcended traditional cycling footwear and originated from the conceptual standpoint of a mountaineering boot. This inspiration remains, pulling functional elements from the original while adding style and simplicity. The lace-up design with gusseted tongue keeps wet winter weather out and warmth in. The full-grain leather and ballistic nylon shell provides a durable barrier while the waterproof membrane protects your feet from the elements. The dedicated hook on the toe box pairs perfectly with the Bergraven Gaiters (sold separately) for when the snow gets deep.
