You don’t know the importance of sure footing until you don’t have feet.

John has done many extreme things. He’s trekked to Everest Base Camp, and summited Kilimanjaro, but a driveway full of wet, slippery ice made him the most nervous. Until he found Arctic Grip.

Watch him test his limits – and the potential of our boots – on a glacier in the Canadian Rockies.

John Cairns is an inspiration. On the day he became a double amputee his life changed forever – but not in the way you might expect. Drawing motivation from surviving, he embraced his second chance, pushing himself to the extremes, in the name of empowering others with mobility issues.

But his inspiration isn’t limited to physical feats. John is the founder and president of Wheelchair of Hope – a not for profit foundation committed to changing the lives of people by giving them the freedom of mobility.
