Chinese New Year has come and passed in a flurry of dragon dances, parades, markets, and music. We celebrated decked out in head-to-toe red to greet the Year of the Rat. If you thought that it was time to hang up your crimson outfits and don another colour, wait because Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Give someone you love a gift the colour of good fortune, joy, and love that will also help them explore the great BC outdoors: Hunter in RED!
Cozy Feet in Hunter
Whether it’s a gift to you, a gift to your love, or a gift to somebody important to you, it is hard to go wrong with a classic pair of Hunter boots. They come in men’s, women’s and children’s sizes. These boots are durable, perfect for an outdoor Valentine’s Day adventure, as well as being handmade and certified vegan.
Canadian boutique Gravitypope carries a variety of Hunter styles for men and women. Originally from Edmonton, having opened its first location in 1990, they now have locations in Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver as well. For Hunter boots for littler feet, Hip Baby in Kitsilano is where to go. Since opening in 2009, Hip baby has become the go-to for modern, thoughtfully curated and organic children’s products.
Keeping Dry in Vegan Outerwear
Hunter is known for their boots, but they have far more to offer. For rainy days, the Original Cotton Smock is entirely waterproof but breathable and lightweight.
To keep kids dry and comfortable, the Little Kids Lightweight Waterproof Jacket is waterproof with ventilation in the underarms and back. If you’re out and about on colder days, the Original Midlayer Vest is insulated and water-resistant. It’s ideal for laying under a larger coat or on it’s for those awkward days when it’s too warm for a jacket but too cold to go without an extra layer. Based in Montreal, online retailer Altitude Sports carries a wide range of Hunter outerwear.
Boots, Coats… and More!
Maybe yourself or your significant other both have more than enough shoes and coats to last you through even the nastiest weather? Are you looking for a more gender-neutral gift? Why not a Hunter bag or umbrella?
In a place like Vancouver, a sturdy umbrella is a must-have. The Mini Compact Umbrella it flexible to prevent breaking and small enough to fit into a bag or purse, so you are covered no matter where you go. For the utilitarian in your life, give them the gift of being hands-free with the Original Bum Bag, which can be worn cross-body or around the waist. To keep the contents safe and dry, the Bum Bag is water-resistant. For Hunter accessories, shop online or in-store at Sport Chek or Browns Shoes.
Hunter for Your Valentine
Your valentine can be anyone you love. This Valentine’s Day, keep yourself or the special people in your life warm, dry, and looking stylish in red no matter where they go. Hunter has offerings for everyone you know, big and small!
