You may recall a month or so ago I asked for your help in winning a giveaway - and then I won!
I was SO excited when I got my Hi-Tec Snowdonia boots. Hi-Tec has been making footwear since 1974 and they are pretty darn good at it.
Even though they are super cute, these are serious winter boots. I gave them a real test when I wore them on our trip to pick out our Christmas tree. What I thought would be a half-hour walk at a tree farm turned into a three-hour trek through foot-deep snow, as we hit two different tree farms and ended up picking - no joke - the FURTHEST tree from the parking lot. At seven months pregnant, three hours of walking is a real marathon!
This is the tree farm on the day we went to get a tree! Major snow!
Despite the very deep snow, not a bit went into the tops of my boots. I was trying to walk in my husband's footsteps, but I think the drawstring at the top of the boots was the key to keeping my feet protected from ankle snowfall. (And who can resist the adorable pom-poms??? My husband calls them my "oompa-loompa" boots...)
They also are dry from the bottom and sides. No wetness, no complaints! I have been cursed with perennially cold feet, and to my amazement, my feet were not cold for one moment the entire time. I kept waiting for ice cube toes, and it never happened. The boots are super warm and comfy. Test PASSED! And, we finally did find the perfect tree -
Don't I look fierce? Ha! As if I cut down that tree. All my husband. Cadbury and I just watched.
One thing I noticed is that the boots are roomy. Perfect for fitting your thick winter socks into! I happen to be somewhere between a 6.5 and 7 shoe size and I think that you could safely pick the smaller size if you are between sizes like me.
I got to talking with Hi-Tec and learned that they were just in the process of launching their new Hi-Tec Canada Facebook page! How awesome. In conjunction with the launch, Hi-Tec has offered a pair of Snowdonia boots to one of my readers!!!
One winner will receive their own pair of Hi-Tec Snowdonia boots!*
