I’m an avid outdoorsman, so when the cold weather hits, there’s no way I’ll be stuck inside. Whether I’m hunting in the woods where there’s a foot of new snow, or ice fishing on a frozen lake, I need a pair of boots that will keep my feet warm and dry. I found that pair of boots with the Columbia Men’s Bugaboot Plus III Omni Cold-Weather Boot.
Oboz is a relatively new (2007) shoe company from Bozeman, Montana – hence the name Oboz. Montana, if you’ve ever been there, is a scenic state in the U.S.A. with some of the most breathtaking vistas on the planet, and some of the most rugged trails any hiker will encounter.
When we feel the first signs of cold weather, the first thing we think about is,” Is my footwear good enough to survive the season?” If the answer is “no”, you should think about scrolling down this article, and checking out these Teddy Fleece Fold-Down Waterproof Boots, certainly recognized as one of the most iconic boots for women, from the boot pros over at Timberland.
Being constantly stuck at work and having absolutely no physical activity whatsoever, I decided to change my life style a bit.
This pair of Timberland hiking boots had me sold, from the very first moment I saw them at my local outdoor shop. It wasn’t a tough decision, since I had read nothing but great reviews about them. All I can say is that I made the right choice. They fit like a glove, even though I ordered them online. I really lucked out, as the length and the width were my exact size.
I haven’t seen anything similar to Merrell Men’s Annex Mid Gore-Tex Boots. They are not the classic hiking boots we get to see in the stores this time of the year. That’s why this pair of mid cut hiking boots got my attention. I am not really a fan of those big, heavy-looking boots that I get to wear only during snow days, or in the mountains. My style is more casual and laid back, so these are perfect for me.
I have had it with spending money on cheap boots that don’t last the entire season! Being the mother of two growing teenage boys, it can be financially draining to keep them in appropriate footwear. So, this year, I decided to buy my boys something that would last the winter, and keep their feet warm and dry. I googled a couple of boot brands, and in the end both boys decided that ‘Columbia’ boots seemed to suit their style. We stopped the search at Columbia Men’s Mudhawk Waterproof Hiking Boots as this was the design that they both preferred. Color wise, John liked Charcoal/Black, Ryan preferred Mud/ Maple Sugar.
Hiking Boots must be comfortable, warm and waterproof. In order to get all of these qualities, I’ll initially check out a few brands in store/online/referral from friends. This is how it all played out!
I love nature and winter, and I love hiking, so mid cut boots were always a thing for me, therefore I have spent hundreds of dollars on quality boots. Not that I’m saying that I’m an expert, but over the years I have learned what I need, what design is best, or what sort of outsoles are the most durable ones.
My wife and I are both KEEN fans, and we usually end up wearing their shoes, no matter the season. I am very happy with the quality and durability of their boots, and of course with the design, which I see as a great combination between rugged but stylish.
