Bogs for One, Bogs for All #review

When I, or someone in my family, receive an item for review or testing, we pride ourselves on taking the time to wear, taste,  play with and sample the product in question. That's why it sometimes takes days or weeks, or even months, to review something -- especially when it comes to clothing or footwear. I want to be able to confidently write about how the product stood up to the elements, washed, weathered, etc.

Isabelle and I were first introduced to Bogs Footwear earlier this year. Bogs are known for their waterproof fabric, easy pull on handles and many unique and colourful designs.


When Isabelle first saw her Baby Bogs Waterproof Boots in the box, she was floored. She loved the floral pattern, and was so excited to put them on herself. That was in the spring. She has honestly worn these booties nearly every day and they still look new. They're machine washable, have a great fuzzy interior and are "comfort rated" to -10 degrees Celsius, which, I'm afraid, we'll be feeling very soon. At $55, they are not the cheapest boots on the market, but they last and they work. You can also wear these boots through the seasons (although she may need warmer socks in the winter). Most of all, it makes leaving the house that much easier and the boots allow my little lady to exercise her independence.

In the above photo, I'm wearing the Urban Farmer, a classic rain boot with a lace. I have such a hard time buying boots, as I've been *blessed* with very large calves and dancing for 15 years didn't really help my cause. This mid-height boots are fairly easy to get on, and the sturdy rubber leaves you confident if you're faced with a tiny puddle or torrential rainstorm.

New styles are released all the time. Here are some of my other favourites from the Bogs collection: (Note: I have not tried any of these....yet. Just online browsing!)

For women, the Pearl Slip On Boot. This boot features waterproof leather, and comes in various heights and colours. (Mid-calf for me!)

For kids, the Insulated Tacoma Rain Boot. It comes in amazing bright colours, is insulated and withstands temps of -15. It's a knee-high boot, so kids can make a real splash when they hit that puddle.





For toddlers and babes, the Wall Ball Hook + Loop Shoe. No laces on this shoe, so it's easy to put on. It's water resistant, with an non-marking sole.

And for the guys, the Eugene Chukka. It's a sophisticated lace-up bootie that's waterproof and has a slip-resistant sole.





Of course, there are hundreds of other options on the website, and Bogs are available at many local retailers. Oh, have I mentioned my obsession with online shopping? Free shipping from bogsfootwear.ca :)
