Cougar Boots for Your Cold and Wet Days
Not all the products are equally interesting, of course, and some times I have even decided not to post a review because I had nothing good to say about the product. But once in a while I get to review something that blows me away, and as you are beginning to guess, this is one of those times!
I love these boots!
Oh wait, let me back up a little...
Remember back in 2007 when I blogged about fashionable rain boots? Basically I was saying that finding a fashionable (not to mention comfortable) rain boot was a pipe dream. Well, it has taken about 3 years, but I have finally found the cutest and most comfortable rain boots ever! The Cougar Tibet boots. Take a look:
How cute are they? And do you know how pretty they looked with my grey tights and my grey skirt? I could never pull that off with bright yellow rubber boots! So check one off for fashion.
But what I love the most about these boots is how comfortable they are. I mean extremely comfortable! These boots are lined with polar fleece which makes all the difference in the world. I've had other rain boots which where rubber on the outside and rubber on the inside, which made slipping them on and off difficult. These boots slip on so easily and as soon as you foot is inside you feel like going "ahhh!" because the polar fleece literally hugs your foot and makes you feel warm all-over!
I own these boots in black, but they also come in red:
They retail for about $75.
The other pair I got to review is another winner, which makes me believe that any boot by Cougar must be a great boot to own:
The Ringo Star boot is a snow/rain boot capable of sustaining low temperatures up to -22°F! I haven't had a chance to test them in rigorous weather yet, but I've been sporting them on and off outside and even around the house, and I can tell you that they feel extremely warm and, again, sooo comfortable. It looks like a big boot, but fortunately your ankle is free to move thanks to the nylon material (and not anything heavy or hard like some other snow boots) which makes these boots light and easy to walk with. I am surely looking forward to some snow, so that I can really test them out (but I'm pretty sure they'll do just fine). The Ringo Star retail for $180.
If you're in the market for new boots, don't forget to check out Cougar Boots.
