Keep Those Tootsies Toasty (and Cute) in Lugs Mahala Boots #Review + #Giveaway


Well friends, January is wrapping up already. It's hard to believe that the first month of the year flew by as quickly as it did, and we'll soon be looking toward springtime! Speaking of wrapping up, it has been cold- downright freezing here in the southeast all month long. We've had a few spotty days in the 40's, 50's and even near 60, but for the most part, it's been cold and windy. We even had our first snowfall of the year this week. Mind you, we only wound up with just under two inches of snow, but for this part of the country, that's pretty typical. 

One of the worst things about living in the mid-Atlantic/Southeast (I never know where NC really fits, as everyone likes to classify it differently), is that we never really have a need for heavy winter wear, so we don't buy it. When I was a little girl, living in NJ, of course we had real winter gear- like winter boots and snowsuits... we needed them! I have lived in NC for 21 years, and have hardly needed winter gear as much as I've needed or wanted it this season!

Lugz

I was recently introduced to Lugz, a leader in the footwear industry, who bounced on to the scene, making a name for itself in 1993, when they introduced their first line of boots. What started out as two styles of boots, a quilted vest and a pair of jeans has grown exponentially through the years, and today, Lugz offers casual footwear, athletic shoes and boots to men, women and children.

With the cold settling in (and staying for a while), I knew that I would need a nice, comfy and warm pair of boots to carry me through the rest of the winter months. I was able to select a style and color of boots that were to my liking, and the kind folks at Lugz would ship them right out to me. Selecting just one style was no easy task. Since I have hardly any winter boots, of course, I wanted every pair I looked at. I narrowed my selections down one by one, until I was left with my top choice- the Mahala Boot.

My Lugz have arrived! Isn't the box pretty?

I love boot boxes for some reason. They're awesome to hang onto for project with the kiddos, or to store old receipts in for tax time! I was so excited to see the Mahala Boots in person. As I pulled back the tissue paper that was gently enveloping the boots, I was pleased to see that the tissue was made from recycled paper. It's always wonderful to come across a company who does their part in being kind to the environment.

Here's a peek at my boots- don't they look comfy?

Here are the Mahala boots in Charcoal, standing beside the box they arrived in. Wait until you see the back!

I chose the Mahala Boots by Lugz, because it offers a modern, fashionable twist on your typical winter boot. The boots are a beautiful suede- grey or charcoal in color. The Mahala Boots are also available in black and tan.

Look at the fuzzy lining! 

One of the best features of the Mahala Boot, is the lining! I am notorious for wearing super thin socks with my boots. I mean really, I don't have thick boot socks, and with these boots, I don't need them! The Mahala Boots feature a wool and acrylic lining that are absolutely dreamy! Number one, they're soft, number two, they're fuzzy, and number three, they are super duper warm!

Lush lining keeps feet and calves warm and toasty. Plus, there's plenty of room for your jeans down in there!

Also, the Mahala Boots feature an adorable tier of three buckles up the back of the calf. There's a lighter grey knit underlay, giving the boots extra style and texture. The straps and buckles are a fun, fashionable and functional added detail, which I love! They make these boots truly unique, and a lot of fun to wear.

Do you love these buckles, or what?

So, I was already in love with these boots, just by looking at them, and feeling the lining, and I hadn't even tried them on yet! Last weekend was the perfect opportunity for me to test the Mahala boots out- like out in the cold. We were off for a day of shopping and running around, and it was freezing outside! I wanted to stay warm, and be comfortable in what I was wearing, and thought the Mahala Boots would absolutely keep me toasty and comfy, too.

So, here I am- suited up in my winter jacket and Mahala boots by Lugz, ready to get my shop on!

My jeans fit comfortably inside of the boots, without bunching.

I loved wearing my Mahala boots while out and about! We were shopping for several hours, and my feet didn't start to hurt- even once! If I'd had any other pair of shoes on, my dogs would have been barkin'. What was even more wonderful, was that my feet were warm, but not too hot the entire time we were out of the house. I don't like my feet to be too warm, and I really don't like them to be confined, which is why I seldom wear shoes or even socks in the house. If I can't comfortable wiggle my toes inside of a shoe or boot, I won't wear them. I was pleased to have plenty of room to wiggle my little piggies in the Mahala boots.

And um, check out how cute these look with one of my favorite winter themed thermal tees.

Adorable, right? They're the cutest boots ever!

And of course, you know I have to give you my MBP review model poses...

I know, I know- I did it for the boots... and for you guys!

I love the Mahala boots by Lugz so much, that I have been wearing them everywhere! They're so comfortable, they make me feel like I'm walking on pillows, or in the clouds. Remember that I mentioned that I hate wearing shoes in the house? Guess what? I've been wearing these at home, and my husband wants to know who I am, and what happened to his non-shoe-wearing wife? No sense in my feet being cold from the tile and hardwood floors, right? (Wink!)

Lugz has a pretty incredible selection of footwear for the whole family. My husband seemed jealous that he didn't get a pair of boots! Check out some of the other styles from Lugz that we've been eyeing...

Men's Zone HI SR


Women's Laurel Slip On


Infant's Stryder Denim


I can't tell you how pleased and pleasantly surprised I have been by Lugz. As if they didn't already look great online, they look a million times better in person. They're durable, comfortable, affordable and are available in an incredible variety of styles, colors and sizes for men, women and kids! I can tell you quite honestly that my Mahala Boots have kept me comfortable, warm and have even held up in the snow! Lugz will definitely be making it onto my Christmas list for 2014, and probably my husbands, as well!
