Your feet will never experience the weather again thanks to the first hunting boots built with NASA-developed technology and the most breathable waterproof membrane.
Alpha Aerogel Boots by Hillman are going to change the way you think about outdoor footwear.
Aerogel was originally developed by NASA in the late 1990’s to protect astronauts from the freezing cold of open space while still maintaining mobility inside their space-suits.
Aerogel is far lighter, more flexible, and transfers less heat than any other insulating fabric made by any company on Earth. It’s simply the finest insulation ever devised by man.
Today we use the Aerogel technology to keep your feet warm down to -13° F / -25°C while the weight of the boots is the lightest in this insulation class.
The weight of Aerogel is just 50 grams per square meter and has the same thermal insulation properties as insulation of 800 gr/m2. This superb weight to efficiency ratio makes Alpha Aerogel boots at least 20% lighter and less bulky than any on the market.
And that's not all...
The Aerogel thermal insulation is bi-directional which means that in hot days it insulates your feet from heat. This doesn't mean that your feet will be chilled but at least you will feel the temperature in your boots comfortable as when using waterproof boots without insulation.
The Dryhunt® nanoporous hydrophobic waterproof membrane is a mouthful, but here’s what it means:
Dryhunt® has unmatched breathability that allows the moisture from your feet to be transported outside of the boots much faster and efficiently. The nanoporous air-permeable technology performs hundreds of times better than the moisture vapor transmission technology. Other hunting boots can leave you with damp, sticky feet by the end of the day, but Dryhunt® provides the very best balance of breathability and waterproofness.

If you want superior pleasure when wearing your boots, then you’re going to love the Danish U-TURN® smart lacing system. Simply turn the control knob and the web of laces tightens automatically and evenly.
While walking the forces are focused on the multi-point ankle guides to provide superior ankle support. No matter how tightly you lace your boots, the force helps to provide optimal stability as you walk, run, or climb.
The laces are made of stainless steel wire consists of 49 strands and are practically unbreakable. The excellent resistance needed for optimal tightening requires a thicker stainless steel wire (0.8-0.9 mm) than other systems. No way can you break it. The steel wire is coated with plastic reinforcement to prevent friction against the shoes and protect your feet and keep them comfortable.
The reel knob is engineered by a brand-new technology that is much simpler than other competitive products and with fewer weak points.
The gear ratio is perfectly optimized so that you can lace your boots with fewer turns than any other currently in the market. It works so smoothly that it is a pleasure to use every time.
The wire guides are made of durable cold resistant nylon and wider channels that will make it hard to block the wire if mud is stuck in the guides.
You’re going to wish every pair of shoes you own had the U-TURN® lacing system.
