My First Official Act as a Bogs Ambassador

If you were around these parts yesterday you were here for the big announcement that I have become a Bogs Ambassador.

As the Bogs Ambassador, I have no duties. None. Whatsoever.

Which leaves me with a lot of time on my hands.

So I made up an official act.

Today, you shall bear witness to my very first official act as a Bogs Ambassador.


You can’t see it, but I’m carrying a sceptre right now. I realize that’s more of a royalty thing than Ambassador thing, but I had to improvise because I don’t know what an Ambassador carries. Other than a chicken.

YES!  I AM GIVING AWAY TWO PAIRS OF BOGS BOOTS.  So if you don’t win a pair the first go round, you STILL have a chance to win on the second drawing!

Wanna win a pair of Bogs boots courtesy of me and the fine folks at Bogs in celebration of my Ambassadorship?

All you have to do is go to the Bogs website and pick out a pair.  Any pair you want.  Personally my fave. is the Classic High Handle.

If you’re in Canada go to the Bogs Canada Website.

If you’re in the US, go to the Bogs US website.

Then come back here and tell me which pair you’d choose if you won in the comment section.

Contest closes Sunday, October 7th at midnight.

Make sure to check back on  Wednesday, October 10th when the 2 winners will be announced. Altogether now … Thank you BOGS!

Sorry, contest open only to those in North America.

Contest is now closed.

    Definitely the McKenna, but I would settle for the Hudson Buckle. Lets’ be honest, I’ll take whatever you sent.

  2. maureen mcgraw says:

    The boots are gorgeous. I fell in love with”Quick High Lanai.” When I was a little girl my favorite color was purple but my mother would not let me where the color. She said I did not look good in it. As an adult I now love and where purple. These in mpurple are awesome and I love the floral pattern. maureen

  3. Alisa says:

    I ADORE the cute little Charlots. I want them in blue, because I have never, ever had a pair of blue shoes, and I’m just now thinking that is a sad thing.

  4. Karla says:

    Definitely the Classic High Handles. Love the idea of good-looking AND serviceable!

  5. Wendy says:

    I love the McKenna in brown. OMGosh! They’re delicious. Thank you for the opportunity! Did I spell that right? Sorry if I didn’t.

  6. Denise Leavens says:

    I am so lucky to be living in North America. For many reasons, but mostly because I’M ELIGIBLE to win a pair of Bogs! McKenna (brown, please) is my choice.

  7. Kathy says:

    I love the Hudson Buckle because they look amazing but I also love the classic high for the cold rating.Hmm…I think I would choose the Hudson buckle.

    So very generous! Thank-you!

  8. Kris says:

    Grats on the ambassadorship.

    Must say the McKenna speaks loudly to me and many others.

    Thanks for a chance.

    May your ambassadorship be long and happy.

  9. Darcy Terry says:

    Those classic high handles are pretty nice, but I love the DRAKE in brown. Those are some classy rain boots.

  10. Raymonde says:

    I bow to you great leader! We are not worthy… May your reign be full of banquets and fancy balls, or at least full of potato chips and fancy bales!
    Since I need to choose only one pair, I must go with the Rider, size 8!

    P.S: If I don’t win, I’ll probably cry a little bit and then, after cleaning up the mascara running down my cheeks, I’ll go out and buy a pair to make myself feel better. If I do win, I’ll be sooo happy that I’ll buy myself a pair of cute short red Rue boots to celebrate!

  11. katie says:

    I would pick the classic high handle as well and then I would buy a funky liner for them!

  12. Vivian says:

    I love Drake Buckle!

  13. Aimee says:

    I love many of them, but the classic mid Stargazer might just be my favorite. :)

  14. Kristin says:

    I’m in love with the brown McKenna’s- they’re gorgeous! Size 11 boots that look good OR can handle anything off a sidewalk are HARD to find (let alone both!) I may very well buy these anyways if I don’t win them first!

  15. Sue H. says:

    Charlot (this has given me a headache! so many choices). Bog Queen of ALL of North America? Wow.

  16. Alisha says:

    I can’t think of anyone better to be a BOGS Ambassador. I’m pretty sure you need a crown. And a badge.

    I’d like to be friends with “Charlot”. I have lots of plans for our upcoming relationship. We’ll go puddle jumping in the morning, coffee drinking in the afternoon and maybe go down to the shore to find some rocks to skip and seashells to collect in the afternoon. I would like to say that we can watch the sunset together but this month marks the first of 8 months of rain in Vancouver so it’ll be a while before Charlot and I see a sunset.

    So yeah, Charlot. Good luck to me!

  17. Jenny says:

    *winning voice over* Hudson Buckle in boat size for the lovely lady.

  18. natasha says:

    The MCKENNA in brown are beautiful! And they make sense, which is my favorite thing about anything I lust after. Although the ALEX I in the peacock colors are calling my name (or at least whispering that Christmas is just around the corner.)

  19. Dana says:

    Really? Any pair? I love the brown McKennas. I spend a lot of time on the soccer sidelines, and on the West Coast, that means mudpit. Between all 3 kids, we’re talking 5 hours of standing in the rain on Saturdays. And yes, if you’re ever visiting the Sunshine Coast in the winter, it rains *every* Saturday.

  20. JennB says:

    So happy for your majesty, um – I mean Madame Ambassador?? Would love the PLIMSOLL TALL LEAF; in black ~ thank you for being such a magnanimous leader, generous, lavish munificence ~ awesome BOGS!

  21. Meechie says:

    Realtree Eagle Cap Hiker Item #71076-974 size 12

    How great would these be for the whole family, but I’m pulling for my husband to win this pair!! :)

  22. Carolyn Podbielski says:

    Oh oh oh! I would love to have a pair of the Classic High Handle Bogs! I have barn and coop chores every morning and evening so I do a lot of tottering through the wet and cold and muck. These would be perfect for me… AND October 7th just happens to be my birthday!

  23. Jean says:

    why must there be only one choice? I like the Classic High Handles and the McKenna and the Hudson Buckle and the….

  24. kjerstiye says:

    I bought my husband a pair o’ bogs for our anniversary this past year and have been oogling them with envy everyday! ANY pair would go far to mending our marital strife!! (although I’m partial to the classic tall mayflowers or the riders!)

  25. jen says:

    Oh, your Bogginess… you are more magnanimous than words!!

    and might I just say, both the McKenna and Seymour (in brown)are too faboo for words.

  26. Hunter says:

    I love the Alex II in all black. They are located in the farm section on the site. I don’t have a farm (sarcasm there), but I do have a fairly large backyard and three dogs that I am sure could be classified as pigs.

  27. Carey says:

    Karen, you are the best Bogs Boots Ambassador EVER!! Oh, to pick one boot is nearly impossible, they are all completely killer! Um… after much consideration and agony because I love them all so very much, it has to be, (drum roll please) the CLASSIC HIGH VINTAGE IN GREEN!!! Yipee!!!

  28. Congratulations on your ambassadorship! May your reign be long :)

    I’d love a pair of the Drake buckle boots.

  29. Illoana says:

    PLIMSOLL MID LEAF – Black, because I couldn’t choose between all of the other funky designs. I just moved from Ontario to Victoria and I really need to funk up my wardrobe and apparently there. will. be. rain at least some of the time here on the coast. So, must have bogs!!! I am so very glad you are their newest Bogs Ambassador. Perfect choice.

  30. Laura says:

    Looks lke I’m a Mason girl.

  31. Cathy G says:

    I’ll take a pair of Classic Mid Ambrosia with a side of how cute are they anyway??????
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

  32. V says:

    If I had my way I’d probably buy more than a few, but my top choice would definitely be the Hudson Buckle in brown.

  33. AnnW says:

    I just found out the Bogs are sold at Ptarmigan Sports in Edwards, CO, near Vail. Can you come and make a personal appearance when the Fella comes to Vail for the 2013 Tough Mudder? I’ll make you an official ribbon that you wear across your chest. There are thousands of people that come for that. Get Bogs to set up a tent at the finish.

  34. Patricia says:

    Great blog and your ambassadorial picture was the best of all.

    The Drake Buckle or the Plimsoll Tall!

  35. Ashley says:

    Classic High Handle! I can’t wear cowboy boots to
    do everything so these would be awesome!

  36. Leslie says:

    The classic mid vintage! Great for early and late season Methow garden season or for the inevitable mud at the Head of the Charles Regatta.

  37. AnnW says:

    Seymour’s for me. They are leather and I LIKE them. When I win them, could I be the Bogs US Ambassador? Then we could arrange a Bogs Summit, maybe around Niagara Falls and we could both wear our Bogs and take pictures of ourself on that boat Maid of the Mist with our cameras in a baggy. Why Aren’t they big in the US? Maybe you could visit and introduce them as the new fashion boot. Who took your picture with the chicken? Do you have a remote thing? Thanks, Ann

    • Karen says:

      Mmmm. Well … I don’t know how to break this to you AnnW, but I’m kind of the Bogs US Ambassador. And Canadian. North America really. Eep. Sorry. Perhaps you could move to Russia and be the Russian ambassador! ~ karen

  38. candace says:

    I like the Drake Buckle in brown :) or green…both are cute! Definitely needing a new pair of rain boots.

  39. Susan says:

    Thanks Karen. The Rue Gum Rubber boots are great! Perfect for those rainy, winter Vancouver streets.

  40. silverdae says:

    I didn’t know how much I would love those boots! I would go with the Classic Mid Vintage print Plimsoll or the Hudson Buckle. I would happily take any pair, though! Thanks for offering the contest!

  41. Angela says:

    Classic Mid Mumsie, with the black tops, so beautiful! And I’ve recently moved to an area where I walk more, so I definitely need some yummy boots for traipsing around in the snow this winter!

  42. I would so be all over the McKenna if I won!
    Happy Ambassadorship! ;)

  43. Michelle says:

    Ooohh…I’d love a pair of Drakes! Also, didn’t know they had kids shoes…how adorable are the monkey baby boots!

  44. Liz E. says:

    I love the Green Drake Buckle! Thanks for offering this giveaway!

  45. Melanie Moat says:

    I would also like a snazzy pair of Classic High handles. Even though I’m pretty sure thats the first time a pair of black rubber boots have ever been called “snazzy”.

  46. Leanne says:

    The dark Hudson Buckle! Size 8 please ;) Thanks for the chance to win… Your Honor? Your Majesty? Ambassador? Your royal booty?…

  47. vanessa says:

    Classic High Women’s -hands down!!

  48. Bri says:

    I love the McKenna boots! I’ve been thinking I need to get some water proof, good looking boots for splashing around in the winter mud puddles and those fit the bill perfectly!

  49. Kristy says:

    I LOVE these boots!!
    I’m torn between the DRAKE and McKENNA :) Both are GORGEOUS!!!!

  50. Nicole says:

    This is tough – it’s between Seymour and Alex II but I think Seymour wins. Thanks, Bogs, for offering the goods for this!
