a canadian icon- the cougar pillow boot

with fall finally arriving i can once again pile on the layers and enjoy all the best parts of fashion, chunky knits, coats and boots - lots of boots.
cougar was nice enough to once again let me try out a pair of their boots for fall 11. i fell in love with the brand last year when they sent me a few pairs and i purchased my much loved cougar moola boots, so i was so excited to try out their re-launched pillow boots. the tan leather cougar pillow boots became a canadian icon in 1976, putting the brand on the map. the new version have all the warmth and utility of the original - waterproof and warm up to -24degrees celsius/-11degrees fahrenheit, with a modern look and gorgeous italian leather construction. the boots i recieved were one of only 900 produced in the signature tan leather and run for $270. they also come in saddle brown, black and a black with brown sole combo for $240. there are shorter, zip up and zip up knee high versions available, but the classic shape is my favourite. check out the website for more info and they are holding a contest to win a pair! www.pillowboot.com you can find out where to buy them here and also check out cougar's facebook as well. i'm also planning on purchasing these gorgeous cougar marlas - omg the perfect low heeled winter boot - the moola for 2011.
below is a video explaining the looks i've styled around my pillow boots. the 90's grunge girly look and modern downtown street look.
