“I think I have the best job in the world,” says Cougar Vice President of Marketing Jackie Charest (pictured here). “I get to see our design team create gorgeous, comfy footwear and then I get to experience how each pair looks and feels.”

On her recent trip to Baja, Mexico, Jackie narrowed down the Spring ’24 offerings to four fabulous picks. Here’s what she packed and why…




“OK, technically these aren’t sandals, but I always travel in my Sayahs. They’re perfect from plane to resort to exploring the town. LUXMOTION Comfort technology makes them cushy and I can dress them up. I love this new Chalk canvas – it’s easy-chic with Capris or floaty linen shirts and trousers.”

“I’m not exactly tall so I jumped at the opportunity to test out our new wedges. Astrid is so easy to wear – the pitch is low so it’s not like walking in a heel and the buckles adjust (a perk for my wide feet). And the Nude tone fit in with the sandy desert vibe.”

“I loved these! They feel LUXMOTION comfy and look so good on: the straps are dramatic, but still casual, and forgiving on my wide feet. I wore Antony to dinner almost every night – they looked great with everything, and the black really popped against both my black and white pants!

“I fell for the colour first – Sandstone – and then the comfort. Both straps are adjustable making Spray the perfect pick for walking around. It’s definitely sportier than the others but still looks great with a tunic and cropped trousers.”
