Default KLIM Adreniline Boot, 2009 vs. 2010

In the fall of 2008 I bought a pair of the KLIM Adreniline boots and rode them over the course of the 08/09 winter season.

While the boots performed great, for reasons I could never understand, my feet were "sore" at the end of the day every single time I wore them. They were very comfortable to wear, but not especially to walk in.

Because of that I picked up a new pair of the redesigned model in October.


KLIMS BLURB..
Powder, trail, snow or sun, the Adrenaline GTX® Boot is up to the challenge. This versatile boot incorporates breathable GORE-TEX® product technology to keep riders’ feet warm and dry. This boot is the next generation of technical superiority, patterned after the original Adrenaline, which was the industry’s first snowmobile specific GORE-TEX® boot. Non-bulky and insulated, this boot will stand with riders as they challenge anything that comes their way.





The difference in COMFORT for me (both pairs were the same size) has been striking!

This new version is significantly more comfortable to walk in and to stand in than was last years edition. While it is far too soon to have any long term report on durability, I am much happier just wearing this pair than I was last year's.

One thing I have noticed is that when lacing the boots up, once one of the lower laces has been pulled tight, it STAYS tight as I continue up the boot. Not a big deal, but it makes lacing them up nice and snug easier than before.

Default Klim boots

I am thinking of buying a pair of new Adrenaline boots but am concerned they will not be warm enough. Does anyone out there have an opinion? I have cold feet. I normally wear Sorel packs and stay warm in those but they are bulky.

I've been pretty happy with how warm my feet keep and my feet are usually the first part of me to get cold. On one of the coldest days (-20C or so I think) my feet got a bit chilled while standing around, but I never wear more than one thin pair of el cheapo socks, let alone wool socks or anything smart. In my case, my feet stay dry, and I think that helps the most.

The biggest thing I like about them is the ankle support. My feet simply don't feel sore like they used with my old sorels - huh, maybe hence the name...

At the end of the day, I'm not in a hurry to kick'em off.

Never had a problem with cold feet with my Klims. -25C and colder and never noticed my feet cold, and they are always dry.

I agree, My Klims are very warm, never had a problem with them being cold and I have been riding sled in -27 F... (north dakota) They are comfortable, light, and warm, everything a guy could want in a quality boot.

I will never own another brand of boots. Klim won me over...

I would have to agree with everyone else on this.
My feet have NEVER been cold in these boots and I wear just the thin sock that Klim offers.

Thumbs up Great boots

I was in the same boat as Christopher, I had the 08's and felt that they were a little lacking in ability to breath. I found my feet were getting wet from the heat not escaping. I upgraded to the 09's and found the issue was solved. These boots rock, and I've never once had cold feet this year
