Ankle-high suede slip-on faux lapin fur-lined sneaker with double faced fold-down shearling collar. Rounded toe. Tonal front-lace closure. Rubber outsole. Extra pair of solid colour laces included. Learn more.
The Downey fits true-to-size, and should match your Brannock Foot-Measuring Device® measurements. If you are a half-size, we recommend sizing down.
“We both try to keep the heavy duty winter boots to minimal, just because sometimes they tend to be so bulky making it impossible to be efficient when running around all day. Both Alexandra and I value being practical, but we also love wearing boots that are pretty.
My favourite transitional boot by Cougar is The Downey Shearling hi-top boot in Hazel colour. I love how I can either fold down the shearling collar of the boots or have it up for extra warmth. The weather is not ready just yet for spring booties, but these Cougar boots are the perfect alternative for you while waiting for spring to arrive.”
“Today’s outfit is as close as I have ever come to a retro 70s look. I kind of fell in love with the harmony of this color palette, especially since I have always stayed away from mustard tones because I always believed they were only appropriate for dark skin tones and hair.
I could not end this post without making a special mention of these shearling hi-top booties which I totally adore! They’re super cute, warm and convenient slip-ons, making them a stylish, functional and fashionable item you should consider getting this winter.”
“Let me tell you guys, the second I took these out of the box, I tried them on, did a little happy dance and was all ‘yep… yep, these are SO me.’
I absolutely love wearing high top sneakers in the fall and winter time; I think they look so cool paired with skinny jeans and a simple pullover or cozy knit. Back in college, I had this pair of Vans high top sneakers (ok I still have them- they’re crazy beat up, but I still love ’em!),and I would wear them to class, the bars, with my Pilates workout gear, through the snow, I mean, they hardly came off my feet. I feel like these babies are the perfect upgrade. They remind me of a more sophisticated and trendier Ugg; they’re lined in a faux-lapin fur, so they are soooo cozy and warm.”
“I love doing my errands in comfy clothes, and these cozy little sneakers from Cougar Boots are pretty much my GO-TO. I love that I can just throw them on after a pilates class and get stuff done while staying warm and totally fine no matter what the weather is!
I love these sneaks with a good high waisted jean and a cropped sweater and fun beanie too!”
We treat all our leathers and suedes early in the tanning process, before the boot is assembled.
The treatment permanently closes all the pores in the leather hides, which adds an extra layer of protection for your feet.
This means that you don't have to add any waterproofing sprays or conditioners to the leather. In fact, we recommend you don't!
Our waterproofing process also protects your boots from stains – just use a suede brush to maintain the leather
The Downey has a natural shearling wool fold-down collar, and soft faux lapin fur lining inside the shoe.
Shearling is the perfect material for cold weather. The natural crimp of the sheep's wool creates insulating air spaces that retain body heat.
It's renowned for its softness, breathability and moisture-wicking properties that keep your body temperature regulated regardless of temperature fluctuations in the environment.
The outsole is solid rubber, which is more durable than the more commonly used EVA plastic, and molded with a hiking boot style pattern for better traction and grip.
