I was never a fan of the unisex, twin-faced sheepskin boots that have become trendy in recent years; in every color and every brand, I thought they look bulky and awkward, shapeless and sloppy. So, when California-based Aussie Dogs asked me to review a pair of Styler boots, I reluctantly agreed. My opinion of the boots aesthetics hasn’t changed, though I do have a new-found respect for their functionality and interior. Here’s why:
They’re easy to get on and off. No zips, no buckles, no laces. Just slip ’em on. They don’t offer much support, but they sure are cozy and warm. Cold feet can ruin just about any situation, but if you’re wearing the Styler boots, your piggies are protected thanks to the thick leather upper and wool interior. You don’t even need socks for extra insulation.
The EVA soles mean you can tromp around anywhere; consider them your slippers and your apres snowshoe footwear. From the comfort of your bedroom to the ski lodge bar, these boots are likely to become a winter staple.
They’re available in black, cocoa and sand colors. Go tall for $160 or short for $130. Visit Aussie Dogs online for the company’s “Sale Spotlight of the Week,” which offers Aussie Dogs’ hottest styles at a reduced price. Better yet, win a pair of the Styler boots by doing the following:
