So we are most definitely in the Autumn season – we have seen hail and hurricanes arrive with a vengeance after a short Indian summer. So what kind of footwear might see you through if you spend lots of time outdoors?
Bogs Footwear is a US brand, with designs made to withstand rapid changes in weather – these aren’t just your average wellies. Insulated for warmth and comfort lined, to take you from dog walking to site work, with as much style and function as you need.
The Tacoma design has the practicality of a pull-on and comes in a variety of great vibrant colours, to brighten up colder days. Insulated for warmth with the Bogs Neo-Tech Lite material, there are also surprisingly comfortable and work neatly with skinny jeans as well as hard working technical gear to provide the protection from the elements you need without compromising fit or function. Also adjustable at the calf with a smooth buckle, to make sure you can get the perfect fit.
More of the technical stuff – wicking technology in the boot lining makes sure that your feet stay dry whilst a practical slip-resistant textured sole provides essential grip in an unusual flower design. The rainboots also boast Durafresh technology, to fight odour and keep them fresh. The fit is spot on, but if you want to have a thick sock, go a half size up.
The company’s motto is “Make better shoes every day. It’s a touch, never-ending pursuit.” And that is reflected in the range of styles, colours and designs available – and what the company say has been their mission since they started selling boots into the farming industry over ten years ago. What began as a workboot has now become a brand that is highly desired by many for keeping warm at work or during leisure time – watching the kids play sport on a wet and windy weekend to walking the dog. It’s all in the technology built into the boots to keep dry and stay warm – and it’s developed from there with the huge variety of designs. But Bogs Footwear are proud to still be producing their very first boot – the iconic “Classic High” built to withstand harsh conditions on US Pacific Northwest farmland.
And it’s not just wellingtons. Bogs Footwear have a great range of fashion and workwear styles for men and women as well as designs for kids and babies.
The Tacoma design is available in 5 colours, and retail at £85.
