Relax happy. That's the credo over at Pakems, a company born from a simple frustration: Why do ski boots have to be so uncomfortable? Snow sports are meant to be a blast and a half, constant winter fun without cumbersome ski boots thwarting and that joy and mirth. The Pakems crew was all too familiar with this, taking it upon themselves to start the packable ski boots movement.
Founded only a few short years ago, founder and CEO Julie Adams had a firm list of absolutes ahead of her in terms of shoe design. They had to be light, resistant to water, hold to ability to stay warm, and, very importantly, they had to be packable. One other element was essential to the Pakems experience: These shoes had to be wildly, wildly comfortable, something a good number of other ski boots aren't able to claim.
Pakems designs a wide array of ski boot styles for men and women, giving you an option of low or high top fit, with a middle-top design becoming available sometime…maybe? Alright, so that might be wishful thinking, and middle-top shoes are overrated anyways. You know what isn't? A generous selection of kid's ski boots, allowing you to pool up a collection for the entire family. Don't forget about the illustrious Bodie Edition, allowing you to personalize your boot like never before.
