Luxury natural hide leather
The Peri has an all-leather upper construction made from pony hair, a material often used in designer footwear and handbags.
Despite the name, pony hair is leather made from cow hides that have been shaved and dyed with colours or patterns.
It is soft, yet durable and naturally water resistant.
To clean pony hair, just wipe the leather with a damp cloth, gently comb with a small brush or toothbrush, and allow to air dry.
We construct the Peri with a waterproof membrane underneath the leather to keep your feet dry.
All the seams are sealed pressure-sensitive EVA tape and waterproof adhesives. The stitching around the shoe is made from a non-wicking material to prevent it from absorbing water.
Each shoe is submerged in water above the sole and flexed thousands of times to make sure no water leaks through.
The outsole is made from thermo-plastic rubber molded with a sawtooth sole pattern.
Rubber has good traction in the rain and snow, and is more durable than other commonly used man-made materials.
Unlike the Original Pillow Boot, the rubber outsoles are pure matte black with no antiquing.
Cold Weather Chic
“This Canadian company sure knows how to combine style and comfort for the ultimate cold weather chic look.
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 (haha 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.”
How to style your winter boots
“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.”
