Bootights {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Well, winter has finally hit Boston.  There is nothing like a New England Autumn in all its leafy splendor.  October, November, and most of December were simply glorious in color and temperature, but yesterday was the first snowfall.  The sign of the beginning of the next six months of winter, where the sun goes down at 3:30pm and you avoid going outside at all costs.  All I wanted to tackle yesterday was a trip to the gym and a visit to the post office to ship some Christmas presents.  With two boys in tow and slush up to my ankles, I decided that I will never ever leave the house without decent snowboots until April.  Ya, I thought Fall was boot season, but this is BOOT season.

So what do you where under your boots, might I ask?  When you wear boots with tights or leggings, is that enough?  If you’re like me, you might wear extra socks, but they don’t always allow my feet to breathe well, and they add a lot of bulk inside my boots.  Well, have you heard of Bootights?  They’re tights for boots, and what makes them different is what you can’t see from here: the attached performance sock at the foot of the durable tights that is made of moisture-wicking fibers to keep feet cool and dry.

I reviewed a pair of Essentials 201 Ankle in Heather.  See, the ankle sock is attached so you only have to put on one thing.  In a pair of boots, no one sees the sock, and my feet are cozy and comfy inside.

Of course, the sock is comfortable, but so are the rest of the tights.  Nice control, support, and texture.  They are thick enough to be warm, but they don’t add bulk to your legs and after wearing them several times, there is no hint of unthreading or snagging.

IMG_8510 This company claims that these are the only tights designed especially for boots, and these socks and tights are designed by Shelby Mason, 100% made in the USA.  They sell a variety of colors, styles, and designs, as well as Darby’s (which are specifically socks and not tights) as well as Sport style.

I’m really into boots this season.  I’ve been buying them, returning them, picking some up at thrift stores, trading at swap meets, selling them on eBay, online shopping, trying them on in shoe stores, trying on my friends’ boots…I am really on the hunt to have a finite assortment of heeled and flat boots that I love.  All of this boot-wearing has really got me considering the socks I’m wearing with these boots, and I’m getting pickier and pickier.

Kushyfoot-LogoGood thing Kushyfoot sent me a huge assortment of some of the best from their Fall collection!

IMG_8169

In this set (which will also be awarded to one winner), I got to review fleece tights, fleece trouser socks, microfiber tights in heather gray, opaque knee length socks, shaping tights, some microfiber crews.  I’m totally set for this Fall!  Let me show you some of my favorites:
1) The Fleece Tights:
tights
Holy cow.  Its like they’ve taken a pair of tights and lined them entirely with a soft sweatshirt.  I don’t know how they’ve done it, but these are the coziest, warmest, most wonderful tights for the inside of boots, under skirts, or just to keep your legs warm under dress pants on a cold day.
2) The Fleece Trouser Socks:
fleece socksThere are exactly like the tights, but obviously socks.  I love that they really are tall enough to cover up to my knees, for when I’m wearing knee-high boots.  So cozy inside!
3) The Microfiber Tights
IMG_8173I love the heather gray.  So all of these Kushyfoot products are more than just tights and socks.  They have that added cushion in them to make them more comfortable and friendly on your feet.  The texture is not bulky enough to be a bother, but just enough to notice a difference when you’re on your feet all day.

4) Knee Length Socks

IMG_8329

If you wear dress pants or long skirts to work, these are a must.  The solid socks have great compression, which should really help if you are on your feet all day, and I like how tightly woven these fishnets are.  The cushy texture on the soles is so comfy, and I LOVE this fishnet look in a knee-high.

5) Shaping Tights

Compression, compression!  These are SHAPERs!  Let me tell you.  I’ve never felt so compressed by a pair of tights ever.  It might take a little legwork (haha) to get in these, but once you’re in, you’re held in well.  While putting them on, it felt like I had ordered the wrong size, but once snuggly inside, I felt compressed, put together, and very shapely.  Instead of feeling restricting, I found them really comfortable and even after wearing them church, I left them on all day, which says a lot, seeing as tights are usually the very first thing that come off when I walk in the door.  I like that they are opaque with just a hint of sheer without adding any bulk to my legs.  The compression around the stomach and butt is impressive.

6) Microfiber Crews

IMG_8184

These have been great with my shorter boots and regular shoes.  I wore these last weekend with my cowboy boots to our Halloween Party.  Totally comfortable while still being nice and thin.  These are great at not adding bulk to your shoes or boots that are a perfect fit.  They stay up nicely and are super soft.

Aren’t all of these great!?  Enter below to win your own set of all eight products in your size!  {$50 value}
