Beate braves the elements to put these Fizik Terra Artica winter boots to the test.
The perfect winter boot does not exist. Which means that I am engaged in an eternal search for warm, dry, feet through the cold, wet months of the year (which are as often August as they are December, to be honest). Lining up wet shoes stuffed with newspaper day after day gets a bit dispiriting (although not quite as dispiriting as putting wet shoes back on. Shudder.).
Clearly shoe companies are engaged in the same quest (otherwise they’d never bring out new models, right?).
So when I was presented with a pair of Fizik Terra Artica X2s, I was pretty excited (and not at all put off by the Cinderella-esque conditional ‘if you can get these on, you can test them for us’.)
