Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.


PORTLAND, OR – November 7, 2014– Bogs Footwear is teaming up with Portland Children’s Museum to keep the awe and wonder of outdoor exploration accessible to younger generations. The Museum’s newest permanent exhibit, Outdoor Adventure, is an intentional, education-based, ADA-accessible outdoor space giving kids the chance to reconnect with nature. The 1.3 acre space is open rain or shine, and showers and puddles won’t be an issue thanks to a donation of BOGS Classic boots.

“Where I grew up there was a sign in a local outfitters store that read, There is no such thing as bad weather, just insufficient clothing! At Portland Children’s Museum, we want families to play outdoors rain or shine, and Bogs’ generous donation of boots ensures kid comfort regardless of the weather,” said Ruth Shelly, Executive Director of Portland Children’s Museum. “The colorful designs are perfect for a Museum dedicated to learning through play, and we are grateful to Bogs as a partner in encouraging outdoor exploration.”

BOGS Classic boots are 100% waterproof, insulated with 7mm Neo-Tech ™ for comfort down to -30F/-34C, and have a non-marking, self-cleaning outsole. BOGS’ signature pull-on handles allow little wearers to easily grab ‘em and go.

“We pride ourselves on making BOGS the best waterproof boots for all day comfort,” said David Cook, Director of Marketing for BOGS. “We’re happy to have kids here in Portland sporting our footwear, especially in a space dedicated to outdoor exploration, learning, and play.”

About Portland Children’s Museum

We’re a museum that doesn’t act like a museum because our audience—children and the adults who care for them—is more important to us than anything we collect. Instead of investing in precious objects, we create priceless opportunities for our visitors to learn through play. Our main exhibit is the imagination of the children who play here. Every activity from permanent to travelling exhibits is designed to encourage children to play and wonder while they learn about themselves and the world around them. Make a splash in Water Works; explore Outdoor Adventure; care for a furry friend in Pet Hospital; shop and cook in Grasshopper Grocery and Butterfly Bistro; sculpt a creation in Clay Studio and so much more.
