“The Kensington Boots score high for us on both style and practicality. We thought it would be so hard to work these shoes into our everyday outfits. But we've already worn them with jeans, a sweater dress, and a mini skirt with tights. When the next rainy day rolls around, we won't be wondering what to wear.”
“I’ve never been a huge fan of wearing any type of boots. I’m more of a sandals gal. However, these rain boots are a must-have! What I love about these booties is how comfy they are.
My other rain boots I have are so clunky and big which makes me not want to wear them often. I wear these all the time when I head to campus — I've received so many compliments.”
“I find the selection of colours available for these boots to represent the perfect set of neutrals. This even includes a blush pink!
I have always drifted towards black to stay classics, so that’s what I ended up deciding on. These boots are easy to pull on and run out the door. Also, the memory insoles help remember the shape of your foot. I have troubles with footwear comfortably fitting my feet, so I look forward to these boots becoming a staple for me.”
“If you are in the market for some new stylish everyday boots, you HAVE to check out these new Kensington Chelsea Boots from Cougar Shoes! I have never gotten more compliments on a pair of shoes, and I must say, I’m absolutely in love.
I have always had a hard time finding cute shoes that aren’t painful to wear, so I won’t be taking these bad boys off. These boots were literally made for walkin’ – I totally recommend!”
“I had originally planned on wearing my new coat over a dress or with jeans and heels but it has been so gloomy and cold in the city and getting ‘dressed’ has been the last thing I’ve wanted to do.
I opted for wool joggers and [these] Chelsea style wellies instead and I think it really worked! While this outfit is pretty casual in nature, I love how the pink coat makes it feel a touch more dressy. And with small details like dainty lace trimmed socks sticking out slightly from my boots, who says a casual look can’t feel glamorous? ”
“I’m usually not a fan of rain boots as the feet get no breathing room, but these boots are different!
I wore them all day long and my feet were breathing just fine. These are by far my fave – so easy to match with everything for Spring, easy to pull on & off, perfect shield from the rain AND everyone at work was jealous when they arrived in the mail – so I highly recommend ;)”
To create a completely waterproof boot, the Kensington is made from injected rubber.
First, a lightweight sock is placed over an aluminum last. Then, they are both inserted into a mold.
The mold is sealed tight and injected with rubber. This creates a solid rubber upper with no seams – and no leaks!
Finally, the elastic gore is treated with a coating that repels water.
The soles are attached to the rubber upper by hand.
To make them lighter than the average rain boot, we use ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) instead of rubber. EVA is similar to rubber, but a lot lighter!
The soles are molded with a hiking boot style pattern for better traction and grip.
Our insoles are lightweight and removable.
For extra comfort, we use dual density foam insoles.
The top layer is a low density foam that is soft and flexible. It is molded to a tougher bottom layer that absorbs shocks and vibrations.
They're pretty comfortable!
