Cougar Boots had a mobile installation going around the city showing off the new Pillow Boot collection for the season. I stopped by the King and Brant intersection where they had set up shop one November day during lunch.

The installation was there to show off the new Cougar Pillow boot styles to the public. Media was also invited to check out the new styles.

I was really impressed with the new styles added to the Cougar Pillow Boot line. The reworked original Pillow Boot is back in different colourways like black, sienna, rust and tan. New styles are a bit more feminine with wedge heels and different textures.

I love the tall Pillow Boot called Quilty Pleasures. They come in black and chestnut. They are calf Leather with quilted nylon. These were the boot I received from the collection courtesy of Cougar. I wore them yesterday because it was the first below -10 degrees day. I seriously forgot how cold it could be as we’ve been spoiled with mild winters for the last couple of years. The Quilty Pleasures boot is warm, light and comfortable. You can roll down the shaft to reveal a furry inside but I prefer to keep them up to keep my legs warm. I don’t stop wearing dresses or skirts in the winter so tall, warm boots are an absolute necessity.

The Quilty Pleasures boot is a nice addition to the Pillow Boot collection as it adds a tall option for customers.

The Wedgy is the reworked original Pillow Boot with an added wedge heel. It’s for those that like the reworked original but want a feminine touch. It comes in tan and black.

The Edgy Wedgy boot wasn’t on display in the truck which is a total shame. From the photos they are my favourite pair of the new collection. I would have picked these over the Quilty Pleasures (even though they are amazing). They are like a wedge sneaker snow boot and probably the only time you’ll see me approve a description that includes sneaker and wedge.

All boots in the Cougar Pillow Boot Collection are rated from -10 to – 30 degrees which makes them perfect for Canadian winters. They all have the tell-tale red fleece lining and range in price from $200 to $250. The boots are available at a number of retailers like B2 and Browns in the city.  See the website for a more complete list.
