Introducing The Newest “Bogs Ambassador” … ME.

A few months ago I got an email from the people at Bogs footwear.  They wanted to tell me they were selecting a few people around North America to be “Bogs Ambassadors.”

Yeah.  I didn’t know what that meant either.  So I followed up on the email and discovered the honour was really quite flattering.  Bogs wanted to highlight and recognize  average, everyday people who wear their boots.

4 people would be highlighted.  They wanted one of them to be me.

Once I understood what it meant, (I didn’t have to go on tour or anything) I wholeheartedly agreed to be an ambassador to Bogs boots.  They shot over a questionnaire for me to fill out, asked me to take a quick picture of me doing something I normally do in my Bogs and Bing, Bang, Bogs  … I WAS A BOGS AMBASSADOR.



So here I am.  The newly appointed Bogs Ambassador. It’s kind of like being a real ambassador except I only get diplomatic immunity of I hit someone over the head with my boot.

Head on over to the Bogs website right now to read about a day in my life, on my Bogs page.

You’ll get answers to  how I spend all the hours in my day, what I wear my Bogs for, what Superpower I would choose, and what I wanted to be when I grew up.

Once you’re on the page take a look up top at the other 3 Bogs Ambassadors (all men) and read their profiles.  REALLY interesting group of guys.  And interestingly enough, we ALL own the same pair of Bogs. The Classic High Handles.  Only I own 2 pairs.  ‘Cause I’m a girl.

Tomorrow I announce my first official act as a Bogs Ambassador.

    If you’re average and everyday then who is above average and everyday? Should we be worried?
    Very cool.

  2. Lyn says:

    Congratulations on this singular honor! Quite a nice pic.

  3. cred says:

    btw- after looking up the other ambassadors, I couldn’t help but notice that you wear your bogs most proudly- you can barely see their boots in their photos.

  4. MelissaM says:

    Madame: Congrats on your ambassadorship. I will say, I’ve owned a pair of Bogs for a couple years now, and while I do like their ease and water-proof-ness, here’s what I don’t like. They are too big. Bogs doesn’t make half sizes, and I fear the 8 would have been too small, but I have a hard time slogging through snow for a while because my feet get tired. Maybe I should try some 8s at a store and see, but I’ve been looking for new boots, and not Bogs because of it.

    Any clues for me, Madame Ambassador?

    Congrats Karen! I read your Bogs page–“The lasso of truth”–what a great choice! Except that there would be no politicians to run this place, or, they would constantly be trying to untangle themselves. Well done, Bogs people. Another great choice!

  6. Ruth says:

    Congratulations! You were an unofficial ambassador before, but now you’re legit! :D

    Will you be able to acquire discounted or free boots? Now that you’re ambassador, you will need more than two pairs… SURELY. It’s a girl thing. ;O)

  7. cred says:

    As the person who wears bogs for mucking about her chickens & for baking in her kitchen, you deserve the honour!

  8. ~JackieVB says:

    Congratulations to you on your ambassadorship. And might I say – Cuddles looks very content there on your lap.

  9. MJ says:

    When I first started reading your blog, I saw the Bogs advert and wished I lived someplace where I could where them! Maybe one day they’ll make a tropical version! Congrats, Ms. Ambassador!

  10. Jules says:

    You rule! congratulations!

  11. Jeff Walker says:

    It must be working because I now want to be just like you and own a pair of bogs. But wait… I must have the chickens too! Congrats Karen. That company has good taste.

  12. Anita says:

    Congrats on the title, dont forget to add it to Chicken Coop Desgin Goddess. And which chicken got the privilege of being your pin up partner?

  13. Karen says:

    Congratulations Ms. Ambassador! My boots off to you. Might have to get me some of them boots!

  14. Rebecca says:

    Congratulations! I am a new follower(a few weeks now) and I would like to thank you for your daily dose of inspiration. I start each and everyday with a cup of joe and your blog. Makes me smile and gets my gears running. Our fam of 7 couldn’t deal without Bogs! Lucky for us, our besties own a shoe shop that carry the brand. Keep smiling!

  15. Janie Farmer says:

    Sorry. I don’t muck yuck, walk through/on water so have never heard of Bog Boots. Maybe I AM on another planet or in a coma. Will check them out.

  16. Lynn says:

    Way to go on being chosen….and for being the only woman! I have BOGS and ordered them for my daughter and 5 grandchildren as well. Congrats, Ambassador!

  17. Jen says:

    That is awesome! Can you shorten it to initials….you know that you put after your name? ;)

  18. Judith says:

    So cool! Congratulations, Your Bogginess! I’ve been thinking about the Bogs ever since you talked about them the last time, and I think it’s finally time to cave in and get some. Winter’s a-comin’ on fast, and the muddy autumn dog walks are already here…

  19. Elle says:

    Who’s calling you “average”?

    Enjoy your new diplomatic status!

  20. Tricia Rose says:

    I notice they can’t spell coop, unless your chickens are planning a takeover and Bogs are trying to warn you.

  21. Tricia Rose says:

    AND you look uncommonly fetching in them – but can we see the men, or are you saving them all for yourself?

  22. Laura says:

    I wouldn’t exactly call you an “average, everyday” person. Congratulations!

  23. Aimee says:

    Okay. I LOVE my Bogs. Seriously. I (believe it or not) bought them for rowing (crew). In early spring, the path to our dock floods, and I discovered while we were carrying our scull through 9″-deep water one day that my “fashion rain boots” weren’t anywhere near water tight. Brr. My teammate, who mucks stalls regularly, told me to order Bogs. I did. They are cute. AND watertight. AND warm. AND I am happy. The End.

    Best of luck, Madame Ambassador! Off to read about all your Bogginess…

  24. Sheri says:

    How awesome is that??? Congratulations! I can’t think of a better ambassador.

  25. Lindsay says:

    Congrats! How cool. I bought a pair of bogs, partially on your recommendation, partially on a friends recommendation. Now my husband, mom, and sister all have a pair. And I took a bunch of girlfriends Black Friday shopping for them. You were a brand ambassador far before the title was official, lol. I love them!
