From the Vibram sole to the stretchy, zippered gaiter top, the Ruffwear Polar Trex Winter Dog Boots are the real deal. Both of my high-energy, 45-pound dogs love to go for walks and play in the snow, but when the temperature plunges and their feet get cold, they both freeze in place and refuse to move. Since using these booties on my dogs, I no longer have to carry them back to the house and pick snowballs from between their iced-up toes. I’ve tried other dog boots, and they work—until they fall off. But the self-fastening strap inside the Polar Trex cinches around the dog’s foot, securing the boot, and the nylon gaiter zips up to prevent snow and ice from balling up inside. My hyper three-year-old mutt can now do zoomies even in the snow, and my 12-year-old border collie is back to strutting around his property and prancing down the trail with me regardless of the temp. These boots have great traction on both snow and ice, and sport reflective trim at the toe. Built to last, these sturdy boots are not only functional, but, dare I say it, adorable. Available online; $50.
