When Canadian women’s hockey player Caroline Ouellette isn’t scoring goals for the Montreal Stars, she’s serving as brand ambassador for Pajar Canada and promoting hockey among the country’s young women. “I’m very passionate about coaching and growing the game,” said Ouellette, who helped bring home the gold for Canada in the 2014 Olympics. “The opportunities I got through hockey have been incredible.” The crossover between athletes and fashion continues to escalate, so it’s no surprise that when Ouellette slips off her skates, she dresses up in a pair of low — yet stylish — heels. “I’ve gotten more comfortable walking in heels and now enjoy wearing them,” said the 5-foot-11-inch Ouellette, who ranks Michael Kors among her favorite shoe brands. However, on a recent trek to the North Pole with True Patriot Love, Canada’s charity honoring the country’s veterans, she opted to cozy up in a pair of Pajar boots. Here, a few more of Ouellette’s choice items.
