The 550 Lichene hiking boots are manufactured at Samelin’s boot factory in Estonia. They are designed to hike in the Nordic climate, but as Samelin themselves says, “they are actually suitable for anyone who enjoys an active lifestyle.”
Samelin has been producing hiking boots for more than 20 years, and for many, Samelin is known as the manufacturer of high-quality hiking boots.
The hiking boots are made of waterproof nubuck leather and the inner lining is a 4-layer sock-style membrane system Topaz, which ensures water resistance and breathability. The boots have a two-layer Vibram sole that is suitable for moving on both soft and hard soil. If you are not familiar with Vibram it is the Porsche or Ferrari – whichever you prefer in the world of hiking footwear. The boot eyelets are made of non-magnetic metal and the laces can be attached at different heights. The inside of the boots is shockproof, antibacterial, breathable, and washable. There is a protective rubber on the nose and heel of the boot. Size 41 boots weigh 1.3 kg.
