We've made luxury winter boots that can handle the wettest, iciest and snowiest weather.
Introducing the Small Batch Collection – a limited edition line of premium natural hide, full grain leather and fur trimmed boots you can wear anywhere, whatever the weather.
This exclusive collection will only be available for a short time only.
Once they’re gone, they’re gone for good!
You can buy Small Batch styles on our website and at select retailers in major cities across Canada and the United States.
Waterproof natural hide and suede leather
It's really rare for fashion boots like these to be waterproof, but our design team pulled it off.
We've built each shoe with a waterproof membrane hidden underneath the natural hide and suede leather to keep your feet dry.
Even the seams are sealed with waterproof adhesives and tape.
That means you can wear these in wet slushy snow without getting your feet wet!
“The Peri Natural Hide Winter Boot's soft, natural hide is waterproof and stands out, especially in this chic berry shade that will lend a high-fashion touch to any outfit and looks especially sharp against a navy parka and oversized scarf.” — The Kit
The materials used in the lining of each shoe is cold-temperature rated down to -24°C/-11°F.
No more freezing toes when you get into work.
“If you’re tired of changing your shoes when you get to work, the Darbi Natural Hide Ankle Boot can eliminate that hassle. This sleek riff on a hiking boot has a low, stacked heel that pairs perfectly with tights and a featherweight cashmere sweater dress—and the waterproof outer layer and insulated lining mean you’ll make it to work, sans soaked feet.” — The Kit
Easy to care for
Keeping natural hide and suede leather clean is easier than you'd think.
Just wipe the leather with a damp cloth, gently comb with a small brush or toothbrush, and allow to air dry.
No need to apply waterproof sprays or gels, these boots are waterproof right out of the box.
“You know those cold winter mornings when you just want to wrap yourself in your comforter and never leave the house? With a super soft lining and a memory-molded insole, the Vanora Fur-Suede Winter Boot will let your feet feel that cozy. Thanks to their genuine fur and caramel-coloured suede, they’ll elevate your easiest brunch outfit, too.” — The Kit
Cold weather chic
“This past week-end, the weather dropped and I decided to put my new Cougar shoes to test while leaving the house for a full day of errands. Not only did I not complain once (which is a miracle on a rainy/gray day) but I actually felt so comfortable that we ended up making a detour by the park to enjoy a hot chocolate.”
The winter boots you need this season
“Not only is the Small Batch collection next level chic, they’re also practical: waterproof, temperature rated up to -24 degrees celsius, anti-slip outsoles, polar plush lining, memory molded insole… need I say more?”
A badass winter boot
“Like many of Cougar’s shoes, the entire Small Batch collection is waterproof and temperature rated from -24°C to -30°C to keep your toes warm but they’re also appropriate for milder weather.
I wore my Darbi boots on a 12°C fall day while Geoff and I grabbed coffee and went for a stroll. My feet were comfortable and not overheated like I had originally feared. Honestly the best part is just finding a badass winter boot that’s not gonna mess with the flow of my outfit!”
“I wanted something super cozy that I could easy to slip on and off when I was out running errands or heading to barre classes. Basically, a stylish upgrade from my old, ratty UGGs!
When I first saw the Vanora boot, I knew we were meant to be.”
Don’t sacrifice style for function
“There is no better way to test out your new footwear than to take it out for a spin where you will most need it. In this case, the Rocky Mountains.
These Peri Cougar boots not only passed every practical test of a good winter boot (soft, warm, great grips to prevent slipping AND waterproof) but are also easy on the eyes... You don’t have to sacrifice style for function any longer.”
Fashionable and damn warm
“With winter creeping it’s ugly head to Montreal, I have been prepping my winter wardrobe and especially my shoe collection because if you know, you know my shoe obsession is on another level.
Although the Small Batch Collection consists of a few styles, my favourite was hands down the Vanora booties – the perfect mix of cozy, fashionable, comfortable and pillowy soft!”
These boots will get noticed, but they won’t be seen everywhere.
If you're looking for something special this winter, we highly recommend checking these out!
