1985: INSULATING THE BOOT
August 04, 2021
With well established compounds and construction quality, Baffin’s Rubber product was built to withstand the elements of many Canadian & Industrial environments.
Over the years, with trips to Baffin Island, sourcing seal skin boots and working with the Inuit, the Hubner family was inspired by their footwear. The Arctic boots contained layers of natural resources for insulation. In most cases, boots were otherwise insulated by felt liners; however Baffin modernized the Arctic layering approach and introduced a multi-component felt liner for their boots.
