Heading To The Cottage? Bring Durable Boots!

Before it gets too cold to drive out and take in some of that crispy and cool ocean air, or the freshness of a nearby lake, get your friends or family together and take advantage of last-minute cottage time, and your last chance to take an uplifting beach-side walk. When planning a retreat later in the year however, it’s important to be prepared – bear in mind it can often get colder, windier, and wetter the farther out of the city you go. The last thing you want is to have a trip ruined on the account of poor preparation.

Keeping the cottage open for as long as possible allows many Canadians the opportunity to enjoy the colder weather for a while before having to muscle through it. Many will agree however that how appropriately you choose to dress for the season will determine how much fun you end up having – no one wants to feel chilled on a getaway. That being said, comfort and style also play a role in deciding what pieces people choose to wear everyday – the key is to bring outfits that’ll keep you warm, resist wear and tear, while also allowing you to feel good while wearing them.

Something many people struggle with in late Fall is footwear – particularly for outdoor activities, particularly if you hail from the city and haven’t yet needed to invest in a good quality pair of shoes or boots for the approaching season. Too often, it is on an adventurous outing that people learn how easily their boots accumulate holes, how uncomfortable they are when wearing them for long periods of time, and how resistant to water they, in fact, are not. 

This unfortunately has the potential of spoiling an entire trip, preventing people from engaging in the activities they went away to do. Therefore, before packing your backpack, ask yourself honestly what your footwear can weather. If the answer is ‘not much’, consider checking out what retailers like Aigle Store Canada have to offer – their boots combine authenticity, style and practicality. They have been made in the same painstaking manner since 1853, offering style as well as durability and excellent quality, and are made from 100% organic material including handcrafted natural rubber. For the seaside, consider their Malouine rubber or Chelsea boots that are great for keep feet dry while strolling along wet terrain. They come in 4-6 fashionable colours and designs that will go with any outfit. Furthermore, they are easy to slip on and off and are versatile enough to wear for combatting rainy weather back home as well. If you’re unsatisfied, they also offer a 30-day money back guarantee.

Don’t wait until you arrive at the cabin, or the lakeshore to realize how ill-equipped your footwear is for keeping you dry, comfortable, or even safe. Rather than wasting your money purchasing shoes that you’ll need to throw out time after time, invest in good quality rubber boots that’ll last many years, survive many excursions, and have you looking forward to wearing them and showing them off on each of your escapades.
