…new winter dog walking boots……….

Winter in Toronto can be everything you imagine winter to be. Bitterly cold, snowy, slushy, and icy……brrrrrrr……..And it can also be sunny,.. bright.. crispy,.. clear blue blue skies,.. frosty breath, sparkly snow….silence and the crunch of a footstep in the snow.

For me to get outside and go for walks with sweetie-pie, I must be warm, cozy and dry……..from head to toe.

You saw the wonderful fall walking boots that I featured in September.  They turned out great, I love them.  Wear them everyday, and they are so comfortable.

These are my new winter dog walking boots.  They are by Merrell, another new label for me.  Though they are not very elegant, they are super comfy, warm and practical.  What I like about them are:

  •  waterproof – the leather is waterproofed, fabulous rubber soles that wrap up, especially around the toe, which get wet the most. The black parts are rubberized and follow the edge around  and the heel cup for added waterproofing.
  •  warm – look at all that fur, right down, with the insole being fur too – cozy warm
  •  warm cuff – that can be kept down or rolled up, should it be a particularly cold day, so more of the leg is covered
  • deep rubber treads – the tread even wraps up behind the heel a bit, which is where we land our feet first, so no slipping under.
  • comfy  – roomy and comfy with the lace ups providing custom fit.

These would be great for photographic winter walks as well.

So now I am ready for walking with sweetie-pie on beautiful winter days……..



I found these very comfy dog walking shoes for fall……….

I found these fabulous new dog walking shoes for fall.

When the days are crisp, but still warm enough that one does not want to wear winter boots, yet regular shoes are a bit cool, these shoes are just right.

They are very soft supple leather like butter, including the band around the back of the ankle.  The ankles are high enough to provide a bit of warm to your feet.  The insides have a bit of fuzziness, not too much, just enough for that added bit of warm.  The soles are very soft rubber with wonderful flex, for easy bending of the foot.  The bottom does have some grip and bite when walking on pavement. And they are easy to slip on and off as they have a wide opening and velcro closures.

All in all, just wonderful dog walking shoes.  And would be great for photography walking too. Soft, comfy with the right warmth for fall.

They are made by Josef Seibel.  I have not noticed this label before.  But did the other day as they have some great Converse like leather shoes  in fabulous funky colors that caught my eye.  These were right beside those and I picked them up, loved the soft leather and tried them on.  Just right.

BTW – I have no association in any way with the label or the shoe stores.  Just thought I would pass on something that I really like.

Happy walking everyone! 🙂
