BOGS are based in the Pacific Northwest of the USA, and they are experts at making weatherproof footwear. With over 40 years of experience at keeping feet warm and dry in the unforgiving Oregon countryside, they have now released their boots in the UK. Baby BOGS boots are a quality product produced from durable hand-lasted rubber over a four way stretch inner bootie. In our experience, the blue/grey Dino boots were ideal for a three-year-old with a serious muddy puddle habit. They kept his feet warm and dry, comfortably standing up to the challenge. An ideal pair of kids boots for boys or girls.
Baby BOGS: Designed for the worst weather
Specially designed for toddlers and young children, these boots are incredibly lightweight. They have a flexible sole and a warm cosy lining to keep little toes warm and dry throughout the day. They are temperature rated down to -10°C and 100% waterproof with sub-zero 3mm thick Neo-Tech insulation. Therefore they are perfect for cold and wet weather. The boots are also machine washable and breathable. A brilliant substitute for wellies. Baby BOGS also have DuraFresh bio-technology that fights unwanted odours to keep them fresh despite lots of winter usage.
And, of course, the dinosaur pattern is a hit with most (if not all) toddlers!
Construction and fit
With their easy pull-on handles and the all-natural flexible rubber sole, the BOGS are perfect for children who struggle with heavier boots. They will keep feet warm and comfortable no matter what the conditions. In addition, to assist clean-up after messy play, they have a self-cleaning and non-marking out-sole to resist sticky mud and debris.
With regards to fitting, the boots have plenty of growing room with a wide toe box and a sole with a good depth to them. The insulation and cosy lining reduce the internal width by a fraction, but this makes them suitable for narrower and medium width feet. In practice BOGS work for most foot types and shapes!
Our 3 year old neighbour was sent a pair of Baby BOGS to put to the test in snow, rain, and puddles! In return we are posting his opinion; very comfy, cool design, easy to put on/pull off! For more information, please visit the BOGS Footwear UK website here.
