#SESTYLE: Bogs Flip-Flops Into Spring
Spring and summer weather in Canada can be unpredictable. Instead of days of heat and sunshine, there are times when it’s cold and rainy (not to mention the occasional hail storm). You almost have to be prepared for anything. And your shoes don’t have to pay the price for Mother Nature’s follies.
This season, Bogs introduces a collection of sandals, flip flops and rain boots (not to mention a few hiking boots for those looking to hit the trails) that combine style and substance with each step.
Need a pair of flip-flops or sandals for summer? Bogs has a version for everyone. The Hudson has wide straps in waterproof nubuck or natural rubber (for her), or in woven nylon or leather nubuck (for him). Designed for active walkers, this footwear includes the new H2O Grip outsole for non-slip protection (perfect for wet surfaces like swimming pool borders, boat decks or sea-swept rocks), Bogs’ shock-absorbing Rebound technology, and an antibacterial, anti-odor DuraFresh insole.
For those looking for a little more weather protection, there’s the Berkley. A cross between the classic rain boot and a city boot, these rubber rockers have a 1/2 inch heel, contrasting contour sole, molded EVA footbed that absorbs shock and odors, and a Max-Wick lining to keep your feet dry. Time to start reenacting the infamous scene from Singing In The Rain, perhaps?
Let’s just hope that there’s no snow this summer. And even if there is – gotta love global warming! – Bogs probably has something for it.
