As much as us midwesterners love to deny it every year, it’s time to face the facts. It is getting cold outside whether we like it or not. So the time to put away the flip flops and hoodies and start wearing boots and coats has arrived!
But the problem with living in Illinois; we can experience temperatures in the mid 50s one day and in the teens the next. The weather just isn’t consistent from one day to the next. That’s why Muck Boot’s Hale and Wellie styles are perfect for my family!
My husband has been working on renovating our home all year long. Most days he is on his feet for hours, occasionally out in the rain or snow, and just doesn’t stop to take a break. His feet get hot (or cold in the winter) and achey. The Wellie Work boots are made with Crazy Horse full grain leather, Gel-Core sub-sole to cushion while standing, a breathable Hydroguard and Airmesh lining to keep feet cool in the summer and warm in the winter, durable super grip rubber outsole, tempered steel shank, and are 100% waterproof. While we haven’t had his Wellie Boots for long, Daniel has already noticed that they are comfortable, easy to slide off when he comes in the house (phew, no more dirt inside!) and have kept his feet warm with the cold temperatures we’ve had the past couple of weeks.
My 3 1/2 year old is going through that stage where he wants to do everything mommy and daddy do. So what is more fun than having a matching pair of boots like mommy’s? Normally he matches daddy because, well that’s just easier most times. But Muck Boots created a style of boots that comes in several colors for boys and girls, as well as women!
The Hale style is a multi-season, all-weather style of boot. Really, it is! Alex has already worn his boots in 20 degree weather with snow, 50 degree sunny weather, and inside preschool where it is in the upper 60s or lower 70s inside. The boots are light weight which is perfect for a growing preschooler, and are easy for him to slip on.
With a variety of colors available, you will be sure to find something your child will like. Alex was so thrilled to see his two favorite colors together on a boot since I chose to surprise him with the blue/green combination. His little brother favors blue so he will be excited to wear them when Alex has outgrown them. The boots are durable and well made so I know they’ll hold up even with all of Alex’s constant running and playing.
And what about mom’s matching pair? Well I may not have the same color but I’ve definitely got the same style! I chose a black/jade pair since they would most compliment my outerwear. The boots are comfortable, tall enough to keep my feet dry if I have to run through rain, and warm enough for midwest winter weather. I’ve always had an issue with my feet feeling too warm in boots once I’m inside but with these, I have not.
So even with our crazy weather here in Illinois, I know that my family’s feet are comfortable no matter the temperature and what we are doing. If you are from another region, make sure you check out their other styles of boots. There is everything from warm snow boots to keep your toes warm in -40 degrees to comfy ballet flats to keep your feet cool and dry in the summer!
And here’s a fun note about the Hale boots:
Actress Sarah Jessica Parker’s daughters have even been spotted wearing the Hale style! (See photos here!)
