Sometimes you come across a product that you just want to share with EVERYONE! That’s definitely the case with a new product called Bootights. In the interest of full disclosure, one of their reps contacted me with information about the company and asked if I wanted to try a pair. Well, duh, a free pair of anything, bring it on!
Created by Shelby Mason, the concept of this tight is fantastic. It is a tight with a sock sewn in to the bottom. With everyone and their dog wearing boots well into the summer months, this is great! I imagine in places like NYC, Boston and Chicago, these things are worth their weight in gold during the winter months. I wore mine last week when the SF Bay area was as cold as it gets…around the mid 40′s. They were really comfortable, and the sock is just the right weight, not too thick and not too thin. They kept my feet warm and comfortable, and I was on my feet all day shopping with a client. It also seemed to have a slight massaging quality…maybe it was my imagination.
I have to say these tights were really impressive…impressive enough to make it on to Oprah and the View… click on the link to see the video.
I imagine Bootights might also be great for a thin layer under ski pants or for cross country skiing, where your layers are a little lighter. I also think they are great under Hunter boots or other rain boots where you really need a more substantial sock if worn with a dress or skirt. They come in different colors and patterns and they are priced very reasonably at around $30 and available at Macy’s. Check them out!
