The North Face Japan Redefines The Chukka With Velocity Wool & GORE-TEX

In Japan, the eastern entity of The North Face, Goldwin, is a prominent proprietor of outdoor goods. Not only does the brand trade in the exploratory essentials of its western counterpart, but it’s also well-versed in urban utilization, boasting a range of technical footwear, garments, and accessories that were built for the city. Now, the brand has revealed a formidable chukka that’s been designed to face the world’s harshest elements in style.

It’s not every day that you hear of a weatherized chukka, and even more rare to catch wind of a model that can fulfill the role of both a stylish formal shoe or urban trekker. Luckily, the item in question was already under the watchful eye of The North Face Japan, who took to the drawing board to devise a winter-savvy example for the aesthetically-astute. The result: The Velocity Wool Chukka — an exploratory, bonded-membrane model outfitted with a durable Vibram sole, XTRAFOAM cushioning, and XS TREK compounds. To round things out, each wool-clad shoe is finished with a lightweight and waterproof Invisible Fit technology from GORE-TEX, offering buyers a hard-wearing alternative to the traditional chukka. Head to North Face Japan’s website to pick up a pair of your own for around $200.
