BOGS Bozeman Tall Boots – Everyday Winter Boot

Looking for a comfortable pair of slip-on boots that are waterproof and keep your feet warm down to -72 degrees? Then check out the BOGS Bozeman boot.

We have always appreciated simple, slip-on boots like BOGS.  They just work.  No complaints.  No BS.  Just warm boots to get the job done.  BOGS sent over a pair of the Bozeman Tall insulated waterproof boots for us to try out.  The boots arrived mid-February and saw daily use all winter.

Seamless construction

This makes the boots ~30% lighter than other boots in this category.  Still not super light, but definitely a noticeable difference in weight.  Despite being a bit lighter, they still claim to keep your dogs warm down to a bitter -72 degrees.  I was not able to get to temps quite that low, but I did get several nights at below 0 degrees F.

Technology

BOGS uses 7mm Neo-Tech for insulation.  On the inside of the boot is a lining of EveryDry and Max-Wix to keep sweat at bay.  I have used the boots without socks on several occasions and found the combo does wick sweat away well. Down below, the footbed is made of eco-friendly, algae-based EVA. The outsole is made of BioGrip, non-marking, self-cleaning, chemical and slip resistant material.

How the Bozeman did all winter

Per usual, I immediately took the boots up to the mountains for some winter camping.  I was used to wearing my splitboarding boots when winter camping, so these were a nice change of pace.  The Bozeman is comfortable and easy to put on.  I literally just step into them.  Hardly ever have to use the pull handles.  Keep in mind that BOGS only come in full sizes.  I am usually an 11.5, so I sized up to the 12.

These quickly became my daily use boot.  From walking the dogs at 4 am, to winter driving and camping. Even in the spring, I still opt to slip these on for early morning dog walks in the dew covered grass.  Even without socks on, they still work just fine.

Traction is adequate.  I have not used them in a chemical spill and hope to never have too! I have used them on plenty of snow and ice, and they do just fine. At an MSRP of $150, these boots are a good investment that should prove durable for several seasons of use.  I hope to have another pair to keep in the truck at all times.  Once you experience a pair of BOGS, you will want a second pair too! Heck, my wife has three pair 🙂 Get some!
