Holiday Gift Guide - Oboz Winter Boots

For your holiday gift guide, I wanted to suggest a present that will warm both toes and hearts. The footwear fanatics at Oboz plant a tree for every pair of shoes or boots they sell and have now planted over a million since the company was founded in 2008. And, their super warm, waterproof boots have that winter WOW factor.  Check out some top sellers for fall/winter that would make great holiday gifts:

Women’s Madison Insulated BDryThe zipper opening makes getting in and out easy, and a bit of faux fur trim and double straps contribute to wintry style.   Winter-specific silica-infused rubber dials in traction, and dry feet are certain in the waterproof, BDry-lined waterproof Nubuck and textile upper.   Inside is Oboz’ super supportive new BFit Thermal insole—amped up for the cold with both wool and mylar to keep feet toasty.  Chilly times are no problem with the warmth delivered by 200 grams of Thinsulate™ insulation. $165.  Colors:  Chocolate or Raven (shown).

Women’s Moonlight Insulated BDry These pull-on boots will ease the way outdoors to walk the dog or scrape the windshield.   The faux fur collar tops off the warmth that 200 grams of 3M™ Thinsulate insulation provides and the stylized Bitterroot flower and criss-cross stitching are nice finishing touches.  Two-toned Nubuck leather has Oboz’ BDry lining for full waterproof protection, and the outsole—with silica in the rubber—improves traction on snow and ice.    Superb support inside comes from the wool-topped BFit Thermal insole. $145.  Colors: Fawn, Chestnut (shown,)or Raven.

Women’s Bridger 7” Insulated BDryBest-selling Bridger hiking boot is built for snowy explorations with snowshoes or not.

My Thoughts

Winter is on it's way, and the weathermen are predicting record levels of snow. This means that a good pair of boots are a must have to get through the season.  The Women’s Madison Insulated BDry boots from Oboz combine fashion, comfort, and functionality to assure that you will love your boots for years to come.

 The Madison boots are the type of footwear that bridge the generation gap. Both my teen daughter and I agree that they're trendy as well as functional. The outside of the shoe is made from waterproof nubuck leather, and they have thick rubber soles. They provide great tread in all types of weather. You won't have to worry about slipping on black ice on the way to the bus stop, and if you step in a puddle, your socks will stay dry.  The thick soles also guarantee you'll be getting a lot of use out of them. You aren't going to wear out the bottoms or have a toe pop out the top after just one season, no matter how hard you are on them.

The inside of the boots are made with soft, luxurious insulation. It provides a soft cushion for your feet, and  keeps your toes incredibly warm. I stood outside for a soccer game in the rain for two hours, and my feet were the only part of me that was still warm. The lining covers the full interior, giving you a combo package of comfort, warmth, and style. Even though they are designed to handle the toughest elements, the Madison boots still look awesome with a pair of jeans. You can wear them all winter long to keep your toes warm and your wardrobe in the height of fashion. If you're looking for a holiday gift that you know will get a lot of use, Oboz are a great choice.
