Bogs Boots Giveaway!

Because the people at Bogs are so nice and because I am so nice and because you are so nice … I’m giving away a pair of boots.

There’s just niceness all around.  If you don’t count wars and famines and such.

I got my first pair of Bogs boots last fall.  I’ve done quite a number on them since then.  They’re currently covered in chicken poop, have a rip in the side and a questionable piece of gunk in the soles.


Bogs High


I love them.  When I wear THESE boots to the farm store, nobody stares at me.  Well, they do, but it’s with the utmost respect.  They say there goes a girl who knows how to plant a potato.  There goes a girl who understands manure.  There goes a girl who just knocked over a 7 ft. high seed display.

My latest pair of boots are an exact replica of my big high ones, only they’re short.  Like this …




I like em.  Walnut  likes em.

If you think you’d like em … today’s your lucky day.

I’d like to tell you I’m giving away a pair of Bogs boots, but in truth …. I’m not.  Sorry to get you all excited only to let you down.  The reality is ….




Not only am I giving away 2 pairs of boots, you have your pick of any of the boots on the Bogs site.  Any of them.

So take a minute to have a look at the Bogs Site and pick out your favourite pair.

To enter, come back here and leave a comment telling me what pair you’d pick if you won.

There will be two winners.  Each will be drawn randomly.  Winners announced Wednesday, April 18th.

Contest closes for entries at midnight Sunday, April 15th.

Start picking.

By the way … if this is your first time here, have a look around. I offer more than just boot giveaways. I can also tell you about the frozen yogourt tampon and how to make cheap outdoor lighting … like this. Plus I have chicken videos.  So, while the boots are great … so is curing a yeast infection by the glowing light of a discarded lampshade while watching chickens fight over a banana.

Sorry … contest is now closed for entries. 



  1. Laura says:

    I’m loving those short may flower boots. Thanks, Karen!

  2. Kari says:

    Oooooh! I love the McKenna in black!

  3. robin says:

    As much as I would love a pair for myself. I think I would (in reality) chose the Classic High Daisy in Pink for my daughter Olivia. Then I would have to buy a another pair in purple for my daughter Emma.

  4. Lindsay says:

    It’s the classic ultra high. Love them handles………

  5. Liz E. says:

    What a great giveaway! I’ve always loved these boots when I see them in stores, but haven’t gotten a pair yet. If I won, I’d go for the Classic Mid Tuscany in green.

  6. Sue says:

    Absolutely love the red Alex boots! Just so fun…. what a great give-away. thanks for the opportunity. 🙂 Sue

  7. Jess says:

    I’m thinking charlotte gum rubber in black, but it is a hard decision to make.

  8. Rachel says:

    I would choose the “classic mid handles” – I see they’re on sale right now, even better!

  9. Fiona says:

    I would get the Rue Gum Rubber model

  10. Lisa says:

    This is the most fun I’ve had shoe shopping in years! Personally I’d go for Charlot Gum Rubber in green. They look like they would be great for our soggy central California winters (well, at least the non-drought winters). And they would look good with my green Girl Scout leader clothes when I take my Girl Scouts out.

  11. Megan says:

    I would love the Rue Ambrosia! These look great for the barn, the garden, the snow….:)

  12. Tara says:

    tough choice but I’d pick the mason, in brown

  13. L Premo says:

    The gum soled Charlot, definitely!

  14. Sandye says:

    This is so timely; I was just thinking that I needed some sort of waterproof gardening shoe. My preference is for the Rue Ambrosia, which actually isn’t very boot-like. I live in a surburb in Texas, and it just gets so hot that I can’t imagine dragging water hoses in high boots. That said, my flip-flops aren’t cutting it either.

  15. Laura says:

    This morning, I was out in the paddocks and I had to rescue a newborn calf from the dam, which involved stripping off my blunnies and socks and rolling my jeans to my knees to go squelching through the mud. Then I had to go splashing about in the freezing cold creek to get rid of the mud, so I could drag my boots and socks back on to go chasing after other cows and calves. If I won, I think I would choose a pair of women’s classic high handles in black, so that I could still be a newborn calf-saving hero, minus the mud between my toes!

  16. Sara G. says:

    I would pick the Ladies Classic Ultra High in size 8 thank you very much!

  17. OOOH – I want the McKenna – Love them 🙂

  18. Tricia says:

    Always tough to choose… I like the McKenna, and the Mason, & the Charlot boots. (The pretty ones!) Hope I win!


  19. Stephanie B says:

    After being dazzled by all of the wonderful color combinations, I remembered that I’m a simple girl. Classic Black, High knee, perfect gardening boot.


    These would be so very welcome as I have to start my garden in about a week.

    Wish me luck! And good luck to all the contestants!
    Thanks Karen. You ROCK!!

  20. Teresa says:

    It’s a tie for me, luv the ambrosia as well as the Classic short! Thanks for the introduction to these awesome boots, I have never heard of them, but they sound awesome!

  21. Jamie says:

    If I were to win, I’d certainly choose the Classic High Handles Women’s. They’re classic. And they have handles. I could go for that.

  22. Ana P. says:

    I too am planting my first garden this year! I just recently bought a house and that is my first project…. Wish me luck!

    I would love to wear a pair of the classic short women’s bogs boots to frolic in my garden 🙂

  23. Gigi says:

    Oooh – I think it has to be the Classic High Handles – but maybe in a fun color! I dig the teal color. Or maybe flowers? All very cool. And then maybe someone would think I understand manure…

  24. Lou Goossens says:

    Okay, liked the classic look, then I saw the mid ambrosia, perfect. Then I looked further and saw Mckenna. But the Alex 1in RED took my breath away! How fun are these!

  25. Kari says:

    I would choose the Classic Tall May Flowers style. They’re lovely!

  26. Amy says:

    I’m leaning toward the Mason style….

  27. Sue Scotnicki says:

    Has to be slip-on for the garden. Black classic high handle or possibly the mayflower for the dreary days.

  28. Dayna says:

    Those boots look awesome. I would pick the rose-(71006) or the rue gum rubber-(71017) but I woud be happy with any. Wearing these would make you feel hip while doing mundane tasks. Love your blog as you always make the most boring tasks exciting. Love your writing and your photos. Keep up the good work. Thanks

  29. gloria says:

    If this were paper, you’d see drool stains. I pick Classic short May flower design 71015.

  30. Pati N says:

    EEkkk Great give away Karen!
    ~I think the Rider Emboss are awesome!

  31. Becky says:

    I would love the purple Alex I boots. So cute! And I bet they’d be great in the winter, too!

  32. mila says:

    Karen, we have chickens, too…chicken owners should gift fellow chicken owners boots they can wear for taking care of said chickens…just sayin’

    bogs boots look so amazing…i love:

    Classic Mid Handles (60156)
    Classic High Women’s (60152)
    Classic High Handles Women’s (60153)
    Classic Mid Women’s (61152)
    Classic Short Women’s (71009)

    would seriously love anything from bogs…your testimonials are gold

  33. marielle says:

    i like the womens jardin…so cute…and im totally into jardining right now heheheh

  34. Sarah Dunekack says:

    I would choose either the Mckenna or the Rue gum rubber shoes. These are awesome and I can’t believe they come in my size 11!

  35. Rachel says:

    So this will sound utterly ridiculous and totally not what Bogs were meant for… but I love the short classic may flowers with an irrational and highly impratical love. But the Charlot? Is high enough to muck around in AND has a heel to keep my foot in the stirrup! Yep… I need me a pair to walk through the lovely Northwest mud that my girl has churned up by pacing the fenceline awaiting my hay-baring arrival. I need the heel to keep from adding to my “emergency dismount” count…

    Seriously, I’ve had Bogs on my wishlist for years now, may I please win a pair? 🙂

  36. Mitaukano says:

    I’d totally pick the Hawthorne City Shoe, I love boots but my muscular calves prevent me from wearing tall ones =D

  37. Kailee says:

    Classic high handle, or the new gum rubber.. ah so hard to decide which boot I’m not going to win 🙂

  38. Jan says:

    So…I covet the classic may tall flowers 71030 because they will put a spring in my skip through outside scooping and take me stylishly to the feed store. These are the coolest boots on the planet!!

    I can imagine defending the homestead with my trusty shovel digging rain wash ditches in these beautiful boots. I might never come in out of the storm.

  39. Melissa Tuli says:

    I love the Mason boots. Thanks!

  40. Kitt says:

    Love those shoes. How to pick just one pair? But I think the green Rue Ambrosias are calling my name.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  41. Marley says:

    Oh wow! I would pick the Classic mid-womens for sure! practical and stylish, I could only hope!

  42. jess says:

    I would love the classic ultra high womens in a 9. I left my Hunter at my old job when I quit (SO SAD)
    and i live in Vancouver (RAIN!!) . 🙁

  43. sherry says:

    tall mayflowers with the golden colours for me, pretty please?

  44. Christina says:

    It would definitely be the women’s Bridgeport for me!! Thanks for letting is play!!

  45. Jean says:

    oooh, they are all beautiful! I would go for the Classic Mid Ambrosia in teal.

  46. sherri says:

    While I already have the charlot’s (and LOVE them), I discovered ocean waves can and will go over the top quite easily. So….would LOVE the tall mayflowers (the green), for my next ocean visit. And our rainy PNW days.

  47. Kate says:

    I currently have a few yr old pair of Bogs similar to the Classic Tall Mayflowers so practicality says another pair like that, or even the Classic Ultra High because they’ve served me so well!

    BUT.. I do love the Charlot Gum Rubbers and the McKenna Boots! *swoon*

  48. Kate says:

    Tell your BOGS friends though, that they should make steeltoes in womens sizes, I have to wear CSA steeltoes for work!

  49. Barbara Anello says:

    If I were to win, I’d select the Jamison model #52431-001 … having lost 85 lbs in the past 5 years, I would use these hiking bogs to explore areas of northern Ontario where I’ve never dared tread before!

    Love your blog!

  50. Caroline says:

    The Alex ll in shiney, shiney black would be smashing. SMASHING!
