How flippin' cute are these little red wellies sent to me for review by the Canadian shoe company, Cougar? When I first took them out of the box, I was a little, "enh" -- they're not something I would have necessarily been drawn to in a store. But trying them on, I totally fell for the sassy tomato red and the little stripey woolen ankle details. Pretty soon I was formulating my whole outfit around them, and actually bemoaning the fact that the forecast was predicting a precipitation-free, absolutely beautiful day.
I wore them despite the ample sunshine, and never regretted it for a minute. We were out all day and walked for all over the Upper West Side and the better part of the American Museum of Natural History, too! They never felt heavy or hot, and unlike so many pairs of new shoes, they didn't rub at all, even with just a thin sock on. They're supposed to be waterproof and well insulated, so I look forward to trying them out again soon in inclement weather.
What do you think? Would you wear these?
