Whoa baby — I am sitting here yet again typing away during a snow storm! Boston has been beaten down by winter weather this past month. I have written many a post on women’s winter fashion — everything from hats to boots, but what about the men?
To my boyfriends protestation, I widened my gaze to find the best boots for men to tackle Boston winters. After weeks of testing below are thoughts from my boyfriend on function that he loves and fashion that I love — The Original Muck Boot Company.
After the recent winter storms in Boston I quickly realized the urgent need for a new pair of boots. With a hamper full of cold snow and slush soaked socks it was clear that waterproofing my feet was immediately necessary. The search for a new boot led me to The Original Muck Boot website where I found a series of high quality waterproof boots that range from work boots to boots you could use in 2 feet of snow, water or slush like their newest release, the Chore Cool Boot.
The boot I found most relevant to my needs was the Foundation Boot and my overall impression of this boot was first and foremost, comfort, breathability and extremely effective waterproofing. I have used the Foundation boot during each subsequent snow storm while clearing driveways, storefronts and digging our car out without a single wet sock to speak of. The natural rubber overlay on the boot itself makes a perfect shield to whisk away water, while still offering stylish appearance which makes it a desirable boot for footwear aficionados that need something durable for those New England winters.
One major problem that can crop up with certain waterproof boots I’ve had in the past is that your feet end up sweating to the point where your socks get soaked internally which defeats the purpose of a waterproof boat altogether. This is simply not the case with the Original Muck Boots. The airmesh lining definitely allows air circulation throughout the internal lining which both acts to cushion and aerate the foot nicely.
This style boot is recommended for anyone who is looking for a waterproof boot that provides comfort, support and style. If you’re working outdoors at the mercy of Mother Nature check out www.muckbootcompany.com to get your next pair of waterproof boots.
