Meet Cougar

Snow is officially in the forecast Ontario. Are you looking for a pair of waterproof shoes that combine style with comfort? Look no further - introducing Cougar! A Canadian company who have been making boots and shoes for over 70 years.

The brand started as a family business in 1948, making shoes in a converted parachute plant. Since then, Cougar has refined its craft to grow into a Canadian footwear staple with distribution all around the globe.

As a Canadian company, Cougar makes sure every boot they design must conquer the harshest elements of the great north. This family brand is still working hard to keep your family warm, dry and always in style.

Cougar shoes are built to last, as the manufacturer uses special tanning and waterproofing techniques with advanced cushioning technology to make sure your shoes are comfortable and long-lasting. Their ‘Always Waterproof’ line of boots and shoes promise to stop water from leaking into your boots. Cougar seal every seam with pressure-sensitive EVA adhesive tape and waterproof adhesives. The stitching around the shoe is made from a non-wicking material to prevent it from absorbing water.

 

Many of Cougar’s boots also have a thermoplastic polyurethane membrane under the lining, which acts like a waterproof sock that encases your foot. This acts as a barrier against leaks under the seams. All of Cougar’s suede’s and leathers are treated early in the tanning stage, before the boot is even assembled. This closes all the pores in the leather hides and adds an extra layer of protection for your feet.

Lastly, Cougar has high manufacturing and quality standards for all their products, and every style is laboratory tested. Every ‘Always Waterproof’ shoe is submerged in water above the sole and flexed thousands of times to make sure no water slips through, so you’re guaranteed a leak-proof winter.

Since 1948 the Cougar family has kicked heels, splashed puddles, stomped mud and never taken a step without recognizing just how small they are in this vast and great and beautiful drift we call home. 

We are proud to carry Cougar shoes, and we challenge you to put them to the test this winter season!
