Fashion: Bogs are the Best

Emma Yardley finds weather-friendly foot fashion

There’s rain, there’s slush, there’s snow, and then there’s sunshine; this is just reality of winter weather in the Pacific Northwest.

So, who better to know how to handle the slew of seasonal showers than a company born out of the perennial coastal bog in Oregon State? While the boot company, appropriately named Bogs, has been around for more than a dozen years, this winter they produced a boot that’s unlike any other: 100 per cent waterproof, totally machine washable and rated for temperatures going as low as -10ºC, the Summit boot ($110) certainly has reached the peak of winter footwear performance.
