It’s not Christmas yet, but I was very excited to receive a special delivery in the mail last week.
Just in time for the onslaught of icy weather, a beautiful pair of cozy Baffin Ease boots arrived at my doorstep. Since slipping my feet inside, it has been love at first step.
Seriously, these boots are the most comfortable pair of kicks I have ever tried on — they’re so light, airy and plush, they feel just like house slippers.
As a busy mom, the last thing I want is to fuss with laces or snaps as my kids are running out the front door with the dog into oncoming traffic. Like their name suggests, these boots slip on and off with ease. Temperature rated from 10°C/50°F to -30°C/-22°F, when the weather takes a sudden turn, they’re perfect to have close by at your front door, back hall, under your desk, in your car, or in your locker.
And speaking of moms, my own mother is also the proud owner of a new pair of Baffin Ease boots. After trying mine on, shejust had to have them for herself.
“I don’t ever want to take them off — they’re so light and comfortable,” she said.
The Ease boots come in three colours: red, silver and black and have a relatively simple design, which I love. We both chose black because they go with everything. In retrospect, we probably should have chosen different colours so we wouldn’t keep getting mixed up.
As you can see, the shape is similar to your basic Ugg boot – perfect for skinny jeans and leggings. They’re available in Men’s, Women’s and Kids, visit www.baffin.com.
Aside from how my new winter boots feel, function and look, I really appreciate the fact that Baffin is a family owned Canadian company. They design, develop, test and manufacture some of the world’s best-performing cold-weather and full-season Foot wear and Appparel products for Canada’s uncompromising landscapes and rugged extremities.
Founder and current President Paul Hubner grew up learning about footwear. When he was young, his father, Peter Hubner, spent time in Canada’s Arctic working with local Inuit to source seal skin boots and other traditional Canadian winter footwear to bring them to a broader audience.
Understanding the fundamental layering structure inspired by the Inuit, Baffin developed technologies to modernize the traditional approach. So from the five-layer Inuit boot, Baffin’s Multi-Layer System came to fruition, and remains at the core of what keeps Baffin unique today. So there was, and still is today, no more fitting of a place than Canada’s largest Island, spanning across the Arctic Circle, for the Baffin Brand to share its name with.
