Description

The Arctips Saga footwear made of wool! These boots are hand-made from world's finest merino wool. Made to be worn in the coldest winter weather with a rubber outsole that retains it's flexibility and good grip on both snow and ice. Quite possibly the most comfortable footwear in the world!

FINNISH DESIGN. Handmade with nearly a century of experience in footwear manufacture.


The Arctips Saga footwear are made of the finest South-African merino wool, which is made into felt fabric in Germany. In Finland, our shoes are hand-made from this fine 100% natural material. With decades of experience, the shoemakers at the Töysä shoe factory prepare and cut the 100% sheep wool felt fabric and shape it into Arctips footwear.

Wool felt is a foot-friendly material. It adapts well, breathes and transfers excess moisture from the foot or the sock. With its dirt-resistant and durable qualities, felt is also ecological.


The Arctips Saga are available in European sizes 34 - 46 and in three colors: black, red and burgundy.


PLEASE NOTICE, that the Arctips shoes are wide by design so you might want to consider going one size smaller than your normal size.

CHECK BELOW THE INSOLE SIZES AND COMPARE IT TO YOUR OWN SHOE INSOLES BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR ORDER. Thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to allow for wool socks when considering the size?

No. The wool will keep you warm, even in the freezing cold, without any extra layers. Do not buy a size bigger from your regular size, because the Arctips shoes are wide by design. Your regular size should allow for a wool sock. You might even want to consider going one size smaller. And if the size isn't right, you can always have the shoes replaced.


How to care for my shoes?

Before first use, you may spray your shoes with a shoe protector spray for leather, suede or textile, but this is not a must. When in use, you only need to wipe the slush or dirt off the shoes as you get home. The felt is given a dirt resistant treatment in manufacture, and felt is naturally dirt resistant. But don't abandon common sense, especially with white shoes.


Does the shoe keep dry in slushy weather?

Yes it does, and it can handle reasonably damp conditions. But don't go and put them in the washing machine, because water can shrink the felt. With their sturdy rubber outsole, The Arctips shoes protect the soles of your feet from both damp and cold.


Why aren't the shoes made of Finnish sheep wool?

Merino wool, the top wool in the world, is not produced in Finland, and we wanted to make these shoes out of the highest quality wool available. Merino wool is a light and warm material with exceptional breathability.


Are the shoes slip resistant?

Yes. The outsoles are made of rubber and have excellent anti-slip properties.
