Im a Cougar in My Cougar Boots!

Can I tell you a secret?

I'm about to marry a man 5 years younger than me *gasp*. There are some who think its no big deal and then there are others who lovingly call me a cougar :) I don't know if Id consider myself a "cougar" BUT I do know one thing.... I love me some Cougar Boots!!

My friends over at Matchstick thought of me for their new campaign with Cougar Boots a Canadian company that makes products that are able to withstand even the harshest Canadian winters. Thank god for them because Ive been a cold toe sufferer every winter and Ive never been able to find a boot that actually keeps me warm.... Until now!

The boots arrived in this fun box which makes storing them in the summer easy!
The style I chose was called Mirage, it has a cute wedge and is made of both leather and suede.
I have to say I was really worried these wouldn't fit as I have a hard time with high boots thanks to my stupid...I mean sexy thick calves so when I tried these on and they didn't zip all the way up I wasn't shocked but not one to give up on such a fabulous boot I slouched them down a bit and stretched the "elastic" part on the back of the boot around and voila they zipped up!

So yes I have to wear them slightly slouchy but you know what? It works! Ive had so many compliments on them that I don't care that they don't go all the way up to my knees. If you do however want to see a good example of someone who's legs they do go up to check out my girl Lena's review.

This is how they look on moi... excuse the bad Blackberry pic.... not so bad huh?
These are seriously one of the most comfy boots I've ever tried on. There was no "breaking in" period required and even after hours and hours of running errands for the wedding my feet still felt great!

Check out some of the details on these babies. First the cute and stylish faux zipper detail at the front.
As I mentioned there is a little bit of elastic give at the back which comes in very handy for me and my sexy thick calves lol.
There is even a leather strap just to make it all that more stylish on the back on the ankle.
The inside is lined with polar plush fleece and these boots are waterproof so I'm pretty much covered for 3 out of 4 seasons here in Canada with these!!
I couldn't be happier with my new Cougar Boots! I would recommend them to anyone who's in the market for a quality pair of boots that will last you years!

Check out the Cougar Boot website for a location nearest you or to shop online!

Great review! I'd never heard of Cougar boots until you and Lena posted about it...and with such cold weather, the thought of warm toes is VERY tempting :-)
