Bogs McKenna Boot Wouldn’t Suck at the Stable
I don’t step in stable muck often (okay, never) but if I did, I’d want to be wearing the Bogs Mckenna Boot. Then I could not only be covered in horse shit, I could look pretty sweet while I did it. Unfortunately I was unable to test this theory for you, my dear readers. The only horses I’ve seen recently were pulling tourists around New Orleans at an hourly rate that cost more than these boots, and I didn’t think that running behind them to see if I had the opportunity to step in their poop was really going to fly with either their owner or the horses themselves.
Instead, I tested the muck-ability of these in a winter of dreadful Seattle weather. Technically a rain boot, the leather on these held up to a serious storm, and the best part, wiped off cleanly after a trip to the dog park.
If you’re familiar with the Bogs brand, you’re used to the wetsuit-looking specimens that are tough enough to last through anything. What caught my eye about these ones, though, was that they look nice. Darn nice. Wear to work nice. A little skinny jean and tunic sweater and I’m straight from the farm to the desk. Still has all the high-tech, everything-proof-ness of all the other Bogs, though.
I’ll admit these were a bit bulky to pack for travel, but if you’re touring swampland in the Everglades or have any plans to muck about horse stalls, these are the ones to bring. In the meantime, you might want snag yourself a pair to wear with your leggings and dresses.Add a comment
