Cougars and Catwalks

Cougar sent me a new pair of boots to talk about: the style’s called Marla.

They’re an interesting combination of practicality and cuteness:
warm, waterproof, cold-weather hiking booties… with 3-inch heels.

I like to combine the practical with the cute, so I chose to model these while trying to take my reluctant cat for a walk.

Please to enjoy.

One thing about cats is that they don’t particularly like being “walked”. This can lead to conflict.

And/or lots of waiting around.

So, when walking a cat, it’s important to have comfortable feet, since no doubt the animal will stubbornly crouch in the grass and refuse to move for long periods of time.

I’m sure some very complex thoughts are happening in that fluffy head.

I’m talking about my head, not the cat’s head.

Man, my cat is adorable. Ok, look at the boots. The shearling interiors are nice and warm. The man-made, PVC-free outers are waterproof.

The laces are long enough that I decided to try a new thing and wrap them under the boot before I tied them. I dunno, I’m just an innovator, I guess.

My rating on these is a yes.

Mojo pretty much agreed, then wanted to go back inside.

Thanks to Cougar Boots and Matchstick Promotions for the boot hookup!

    i dig ’em–the heel doesn’t look too high and the tread seems substantial. i’d walk those down to soho.

    How comfortable are they, bearing in mind that my feet aren’t comfortable unless they are wrapped in pillows…and I’m lying down?

    • stamp says:

      They are less comfortable than being wrapped in pillows, but more comfortable than being wrapped in bacon. Please don’t ask me how I can say this with such confidence.

    You must be from etobicoke with boots like that – just remember to leave the untied and trailing behind you……….
