No, I’m not talking about the older gal hunting the younger man, more like the boots! A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Cougar Boots and given two pairs of boots from their new collection to review. What I didn’t expect was the huge package I received! My winter survival kit included a pair of rain boots, a pair of winter boots, a hoodie and a mug filled with packages of hot cocoa. Everything I need to stay warm this winter!
The timing was perfect since it rained cats and dogs the day after I received my care package, so I got to wear my fabulous new boots. I had been looking for a new pair of black rain boots so the Regal Black (retail $75 CAD) boots fit the bill perfectly. Plus they kept my feet stylishly dry! I love the motorcycle boot details and paired with a thick pair of socks, they’ll keep your feet warm during those particularly slushy days (up to -24̊̊C according to Cougar).
Then there are these cute furry winter boots appropriately called Ravishing (retail $175 CAD). Plush fur and suede on the outside and ultra-soft fleece on the inside make these very cozy. Now it’s a little difficult for me to go running the streets with them since it’s not quite winter yet. So I wore them around my apartment, down the hallway to do my laundry where I got a few strange glances from others doing their laundry (probably jealous since they didn’t have a pair!) and did another few laps in my apartment before ruling these boots as ultra cute and supremely comfy.
They are waterproof and claim to keep your footsies warm in -30̊C weather, which is great considering the blistering cold winters we have here in Montreal. The bonus for me is that they are PVC free which means they are safe for the environment.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m actually excited for it to snow just so I can wear these out! Until then, I think I’ll sit back and enjoy a few cups of Dutch hot chocolate!
A shout out to Cougar Boots and Matchstick for keeping me warm this winter!
