Cougar Brings Back the Nostalgic Pillow Boot

Canadian boot brand Cougar is entering familiar territory for Fall ’17.

The waterproof footwear brand is revisiting its iconic past by bringing back the Pillow Boot, a quintessential Canadian design that dates back to 1976. During the boot’s heyday, Cougar sold more than 8 million pairs and became a fashion statement for Canadian teenagers who wore it with its red fleece-lined tongue down.

The new Pillow Boot is produced in the same waterproof tan leather of the original, as well as in brown, red, navy and a stand-out all black number.

To complement the Pillow, Cougar is also launching the Caribou Collection, a mid-height lace-up boot from its 1970 archive. The boot is made in soft deertan leather with embossed maple leaf detail and gum rubber soles.
