Road to Xnowmate 1.0
After 5 series of prototypes and the help of many people Xnowmate was born. A new concept of footwear, waterproof, warm, comfortable, very light, unisex ... and foldable. Almost unbelievable, but it worked.
The first Xnowmate were manufactured in Spain in the 2014-2015 season and won an award at the prestigious ISPO Munich for its innovation and quality. It was the first time that such a young Spanish company got this award. We were not so crazy after all.
The second generation: Xnowmate 2.0 ...
Our first model was very innovative but the outsole was too flat for snow and watery surfaces, so in the 2017-18 season we reinvented ourselves by incorporating a sole with high end technology to improve grip on ice and snow, and we incorporated a high boot model.
Soon we began to receive incredible feedback from people all around the globe, people love to wear Xnowmate. So lightweight, so warm, so comfortable, so convenient. They wear them not only for skiing, also to go outdoors, to photograph the forest at night, to go sailing, even mushing or riding horses, or in cities when snow makes it difficult to walk.
We realized that there was an opportunity beyond ski slopes - a new generation was born.
We knew our boots were great for outdoors but honestly, not too nice for cities. Therefore we decided to combine the technology we already had with modern design to create stylish outdoor boots that not only look and feel great, but offer unparalleled performance. This is Xnowmate 3.0, Hybrid Outdoor Footwear
We have developed this new model in London, with a top footwear design consultancy and results are amazing:
