Have you ever thought about climbing a roof but you were scared too because you didn’t have any kind of safety equipment? If you have, you really need to check out Cougar Paws. If you haven’t seen them yet, Cougar Paws are special roofing boots that you wear that give you extra traction while on the roof. They have better traction than a sneaker. You’ll feel much safer when walking on a roof while you’re wearing these shoes.
What Are Cougar Paws?
Cougar Paws roof boots are specifically designed to give you better traction while you’re talking on a roof. Whether you go up a few times a year, or you need them regularly, they are one of your best safety products you can buy for roof safety. I know a lot of insurance adjusters that use them when they go to a house to inspections.
Cougar Paws have replacement soles, called pads, that are made of sponge material. They can be removed and replaced if they wear out of get dirty. These pads are the secret to great traction. The most important thing to remember about these roof boots is to never get the pads muddy. If you do, they will become very slick when you get on the roof.
Why I Love Them
If you are on a roof through out the day or you just need them to go up to check into a roof leak, you should try a pair of these shoes. I have a buddy that had a leak in his valley. He was very scared to go on his roof even though it was only an 6/12. He didn’t like being 2 stories off the ground. We talked about different safety precautions that he could take to make sure he wouldn’t slide off his roof. We talked about harnesses, safety lanyards, ropes, and a whole lot of other safety things he could do. In the end, he just settled on a pair of Cougar Paws. When he got on the roof, he had no problem climbing in his valley.
Styles, Sizes, and Colors
Cougar Paws come in multiple sizes, styles, and colors. Me personally, I prefer the high top style, but they also make a sneaker style. The high top style has much better ankle support. I just feel more secure on the roof in the high top version. An important note when ordering your size. Make sure you order at least 1/2 size smaller. They do run a little large. If you’re ordering online, just make sure the company has a good return policy.
Where To Buy Them
It can be very hard to find Cougar Paws locally. You can try doing a search for cougar paws boots, but I normally just go to ReeseWholesale.com to pick up my boots and replacement pads. They always get shipped out within 24 hours, they have a large selection with lots of different sizes in stock, and the customer service is incredible.
