    1. Some multi-purpose dog booties with adjustable Velcro straps and anti-slip soles for keeping your active pup's paws clean and dry in hot or cold weather.

    Promising review: "This dog boots are great!! Over the summer we had an issue with our pup cutting his paws on some barnacles at the beach. We purchased these boots and they have been excellent to have around for future beach visits!" —saul

    Get it from Amazon for $22.98+ (available in seven sizes).

    2. A pack of skid-proof waterproof booties so your dog can saunter straight through those puddles without turning their paws into a muddy mess that you'll have to deal with later.,

    Promising review: "These boots are truly waterproof. Our greyhound wasn’t happy at first. With treats, he allows us to put them on. We do not need to worry about his sensitive paws getting blisters or getting dirty and muddy anymore. He weighs 86 pounds and we ordered size 8. They're a bit big; I think he could get away with size 7, but overall boots are made of very good quality. Thank you sooo much!" —DragonZea

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in eight sizes).

    3. These itty-bitty fleece-lined boots with a too-cute, fashion-forward design that resemble a pair you might have in your own closet. You and your matching mini-me will be the talk of the dog park.,

    Promising review: "I ordered a size large for my 15-pound Pomeranian and they work GREAT! He is actually a tripawd (missing front left leg) so he needed something with tread out in the ice and snow to keep him from slipping. He actually loves having these on. At first, it was a little awkward but as soon as we went outside and he realized he could run around and play and his feet wouldn't be frozen from the salt and snow...he started romping around and didn't want to come back inside. One has fallen off a few times but I notice right away and just strap it back on. I may have been able to go with a size medium but worry they might be too small. You can't beat the price on these. Great quality." —SQZ1981

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in seven sizes and in four colors).

    4. A set of natural rubber Pooch Kicks if you're looking for cool, no-fuss paw protection from the walk time perils of living in a big city — trash, unidentified fluids, and salt — that threaten to irritate Fido's toe beans. Once they wear out (after a week or two) just toss 'em in the trash and crack open a new pack.

    5. Some cozy dog socks with a grippy, anti-slip sole to help improve your dog's traction on slippery tile or hardwood floors. Whether they're an unsteady senior or they just haven't figured out how to swiftly enter the kitchen without crashing into the stove in the process, these can help provide stability.,

    Promising review: "We have wood laminate floors and our large, clumsy German shepherd gets excited and slides all over the place, often injuring his back legs and hips. I honestly didn't think these socks would help or that he would keep them on. But I was wrong! These socks prevent him from sliding around and hurting himself. I'm ordering additional pairs." —MMS

    Get it from Amazon for $9.89+ (available in sizes XXS–XL and in 19 styles).

    6. A pack of rugged waterproof dog shoes with tough rubber soles and reflective strips because walkies have got to happen rain or shine, day or night and it's best to be *puppared* for anything.,

    Promising review: "We had the first cold and deep snow in many years and our dog is young. This was her first exposure and the snow really bothered her feet. We did some research and found these shoes. She does not care for the sound the Velcro makes when you pull it apart. I would recommend that when you buy these you might buy two sets, one of them a size smaller for the dog's back feet. That's what we did. The largest size for her front feet were too big and slid off her back feet so we purchased this red set so now we have two pairs of booties for her. Once we got them on her feet and let her run a bit she forgot they were there and walked normally. They kept her feet nice and dry and protected from the salt and ice. The Velcro loops stay nice and tight and the reflective Velcro is super noticeable. I would definitely recommend these." —April Prasun

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in seven sizes and in four colors).

    7. These iconic Beluga 544 dog shoes with a knit upper and rubber soles for the street style-lovin' dog with their finger (paw?) on the pulse of fashion.

    Promising review: "Love the shoes! Solid build and gets a lot of compliments." —Alberto C.

    Get it from Fresh Pawz for $50 (available in three sizes).

    8. A set of neoprene all-weather booties in a wide range of sizes so even your biggest good boy can get the paw protection they need from hot sidewalks and snowy yards.,

    Promising review: "WOW! These booties are amazing. I have a Newfypoo-Great Pyrenese mix. He's BIG. He is a bit over a year old, has lots and lots of long fur, and loves the snow. His paws get matted with snowballs and they are painful. I tried six different types of winter booties for him and nothing worked. They all made him walk strangely because of the hard soles and fell off his feet. It was a nightmare. Then we found CeeSquared neoprene boots. HALLELUJAH! They easily slid on Milo's feet, closed tightly with two straps around his paw and leg, and STAYED ON in two feet of snow!! He prances around in them, and is happy to even leave them on when he comes into the house for a break from the snow. These are the best!!!! I plan on using them in the spring to deal with all the mud, and in the summer for hiking. If you want to protect your dogs paws, allow them to walk normally, and be comfortable, these are the boots for you." —Michele Helfgott-Waters

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S–XL).

    9. Some breathable mesh booties that'll keep dirt and debris away from your puppo's paws without overheating them in hot, humid temps.,

    These booties are designed for medium to large-sized dogs.

    Promising review: "They don't make my pet's feet too hot or wear out fast, but they do give my dog the traction on wood and linoleum floors. Very well made and easy to put on." —Amy

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in five sizes and in two colors).

    10. A pack of soft rubber-dipped socks if sturdy, completely machine-washable, and multi-purpose (you can remove the Velcro straps for more comfortable indoor use) sound like qualities you'd like to have in a dog shoe.


    foufouBRANDS is a Canadian small biz creating innovative supplies, treats, toys, and accessories for your furry friend.

    Promising review: "I have used these for about three months and even walking on bare sidewalks, they have NOT worn. At. All. I had used muttluks before, but walking on bare sidewalks, they would wear. Not these! They are worth the price and I didn't find that I needed to use the Velcro straps at all. The socks are snug enough to stay up. I bought these for my two-month-old puppy, used them for three months and am giving them away with no wear visible after three months of daily walks! Fantastic booties!" —Suzanna Dobson

    Get it from foufouBRANDS for $23.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in three colors).

    11. These warm paw protectors with quick-and-easy drawstring closures to cut down on the time you spend wrangling your dog into their shoes before heading out into the elements.,

    Promising review: "These boots were the only ones that actually worked. We previously bought four others, but they were difficult to put on or the sizes were off. These are amazing! Waterproof, easy to put on, and don't come off easily. My dog's paws are 1.5" wide and I bought a size five." —Fernanda

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five sizes and in five colors).

    12. A set of slip-resistant pet sneakers because the "sneakerhead" identity shouldn't be limited to just humans. Dogs look cute in sneakers, too!


    Promising review: "Love these boots. The rubber sole will be good to walk on hot pavement. Just took my 13-pound dog out for a long walk on the cold wet pavement. Kept her feet warm and dry in 32-degree weather. If I make sure they're snug enough they don't come off. Very happy." —Russell Yeley

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95+ (available in sizes 3XS–M and in two colors).

    13. Some super-chic cheetah-print sneakers for timeless fashion-forward style and functional paw protection all rolled up into one.

    14. These adorable WagWellies rubber boots so your dog stops refusing to go outside for potty breaks when the grass is even vaguely damp.

    Design Milk

    Promising review: "My labradoodle loves them. The boots are as cute as can be. My Frankie's oversized, furry paws turn into mud sponges after it rains. These boots keep his paws cleaner and protect against fungal infections. They were tricky to get on the first time, but they didn't slow down my high-energy pup." —Marilynnn W.

    Get it from Design Milk for $49 (available in sizes XXS—XXL and in five colors).

    15. A pack of specially-designed Italian Greyhound booties with soft fleece and adjustable velcro straps that'll keep your spindly sighthound's paws free of mud and slush without slipping off halfway through the walk.

The Velcro and fleece is a magic combo...they are not only cute, but very functional and most importantly comfortable for my boy! He had his leg broken a few years back, and every time it is bad weather out his leg bothers him. These booties are the answer to our payers :) Yay!
