Down the dock we’re constantly sloshing around in water or herring juice that drips out of the fish totes an inevitably on top of your feet.
If you want to keep your feet dry you have options.
You can wear clunky boots that come up to your knees or calf but when you’re on your feet for 12 hour days heavy boots are just not a great choice.
Enter Bogs. I discovered the low cut “Journey” style Bogs a couple of years ago and since then it’s all I wear down the dock (and around town for work) year round. They are just incredibly comfortable but at the same time keep my feet dry.
Much like my love for Dry Fit shirts Bogs use moisture wicking technology and with the combination of keeping your feet dry from outside elements like herring juice or the water from the lobster tanks splashing all over the place and then wicking the moisture away when you sweat, Bogs just provide an unmatched combination of comfort, dryness level and quality that I just haven’t been able to duplicate with any other boot.
I just got a pair of the Tillamook Bay Bogs. They’re just like the Journey. Low cut and comfy while keeping my feet dry.
You can get them at Palazolas downtown and if they don’t have the style you want they will get it for you.
