Bogs Footwear Review- Boots For "Outdoor" Activities

OK~ Old Man Winter returned to Iowa today! This is what Skipper thought of the snow.....

Now....I was kind of excited- sadly, more than him! I had purchased a pair of Bogs Boots and had not had the opportunity to try 'em out, until today!

I needed a pair of boots to tackle the upcoming Iowa High School Trapshooting Season. The season begins in March and the meets are usually very snowy, rainy, and muddy! So....I thought these were the answer!

These Classic Bog Boots (Mid Le Jardin) are a classic, outdoor boot! These Bogs Boots  are not only waterproof, but also protected with a microbe shield- designed to control odor, staining, and deterioration. I did have wool socks on (my feet stayed toasty) - they are supposed to keep your feet warm to cool temps of -40 degrees Fahrenheit.

My feet stayed we had lots of snow to parade through today!
So....If you are in need of a pair of somewhat fashionable, yet functionable boots- this may be the pair that you need! I like 'em. I was concerned about the ability to take them on/off due to my foot drop. They were a little harder to remove from my right foot than my left. The extra effort that is needed to get 'em off of  my right foot is worth the style and dryness they offer!

The true test will be when we hit the mud in the midst of the Iowa High School Trapshooting Season- And, I will let you know how my feet are enjoying the mud in these cute, little boots!  I guess I shouldn't say "little"- I do wear a size "11!"  Oh well......My feet will be dry, as we now have Winter in Iowa...lots of snow to plow through....After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

*I purchased these boots. I did not receive any form of compensation for this post. The opinions expressed here are mine, and nobody else's.


  1. Ah! I'm already cold in the 40 deg weather! I hope you stay nice and cozy this winter in your new boots :)


I always love feedback on my blog!
