General Product Questions
Is the neoprene portion waterproof?
Yes, Bogs Neo-Tech™ is a flexible synthetic rubber which is 100% waterproof. It helps insulate as well as keep you dry.
What if I have PVC or Latex allergies?
Bogs are PVC free, but some are made with latex for stretch and comfort.
Are any of your boots vegan?
Most of our boots are vegan, however there are some boots that are made with leather. Please look at the details of the boot you are interested in to find out the materials used.
Can I wash these boots in the washing machine?
Only Baby Bogs Classics and Summits, can be cleaned in the washing machine. If you do machine wash them, then allow them to air dry.
What socks would you recommend for optimal warmth?
We recommend wearing one pair of medium-weight, moisture wicking socks with your Bogs. Wool is the best. The air surrounding your feet is what keeps them warm. Bogs are designed to capture your body heat and insulate it from the outside elements. Layering socks potentially inhibits air flow within the Bogs and circulation in your feet.
How do Bogs fight foot odor?
Bogs feature DuraFresh – an all-natural, organic bio-technology that activates to fight odor.
Do you carry wide sizes?
At this time, Bogs does not offer wide sizes.
Do you carry half sizes?
Starting in Fall 2014 we will carry half sizes in select styles.
How do you determine Bogs temperature ratings?
Temp ratings are a guideline to communicate warmth. It’s important to note that each person is unique and has a different circulation that impacts warmth.
To assign the temperature rating, we use a cold box test method. This test puts stainless steel balls with wire probes down inside the boots. The boots are then put in a freezer and the temperature is reduced every 30 minutes. When the boots show more than a ten degree variance from the ambient temperature, then the boots have reached their warmth limit.
Are Bogs knock-offs at certain retailers comparable in quality?
No, Bogs knock-offs typically contain no natural rubber, which in turn leads to no insulation. This means they typically offer no warmth to the foot.
