Community Giving - Bogs

At Bogs, we live to get outside. And we think every child should have the opportunity to do so too. The outdoors provide the perfect classroom to learn, play, and enjoy being a kid.

For every purchase on bogsfootwear.com we will donate 2% to outdoor education initiatives. Our goal is to provide scholarships and grants to remove financial barriers so all kids can grow and learn in the outdoors.
