These fresh additions to Pakem’s popular original styles are full of features and are the ideal boots for before and after any winter activity.

PakemsThe Bodie

An avid skier, Pakems founder, Julie Adams, had her son, Bodie, in mind when she decided to create lightweight, packable boots for kids and this new boot is credited to him. The Bodie comes with markers so kids can create their own unique shoe design.

Every young artist can have fun and make a truly one-of-a-kind boot by coloring the black and white Marble Pakems with the colored markers included with each pair. Insulated and water-resistant, Pakems are ideal for all those kid’s winter activities, like sledding or epic snow-man making, and just getting out of those heavy ski boots at the end of the day.  The Bodie is extremely lightweight and packs into a low profile, perfect for putting in a child’s backpack on those inclement weather days. They have rubber outsoles for traction on winter streets and resort walkways, and come in their own convenient carry bag.  Women MSRP $70.00, Kid’s MSRP $45.00

The Extreme

The new Pakems Extreme is a redesign of the original Pakems Classic high top boot. The Extreme comes in Men’s and Women’s sizes and is available in four colors: Gray & Neon Blue, Black & Gray, Marble, and Green Camouflage.  Like the Bodie, the Green Camouflage Extreme is also available in kid’s sizes.  This smartly redesigned boot is easy to slide on and has a simple drawcord lacing system.  The Extreme is insulated and features a water-resistant ripstop nylon upper, an EVA midsole, and a durable rubber outsole, making it lightweight, packable, comfortable and warm.  The Extreme is the perfect boot for relaxing after virtually any outdoor activity, like skiing, hiking, camping or biking, and is also ideal for travel or the daily commuting on chilly days.  The Extreme is sold with a strapped tote bag for easy and convenient hands-free carrying. Adult MSRP $70.00, Kid’s MSRP $45

Both the Bodie and the Extreme feature Pakems “Step Into Your Intentions®”, a social awareness campaign, as a daily reminder to start the day with the best of intentions.  Printed on the inside of the shoe are the words “be kind.”  Pakems chose these words because it wants to pl
