Aldo Qualheim Boots
Advantages: Looks nice, comfy, goes with most things
Disadvantages: Did not last as well as I hoped
I got these boots about 3 months ago as I had got sick of wearing trainers most of the time, as I used to do.
I wanted something that looked a bit nicer and better presented than the trainers but still comfortable as I have to walk a lot.
I will describe the shoes as the dooyoo picture doesn't seem to be showing up (unless that is just me that can't see it) - They are a plain black short boot, ankle length, with a medium-low size heel of 7cm and a slightly pointed toe. The upper is a suede leather and it just has a bit of stitching on it, otherwise it is totally plain black. It has a small zip on the side so you can put your foot into it.
I found these shoes very practical as they are comfy, and the heel is not too high when you have to walk around a lot, but they do not look as boringly practical as trainers - it looks as though you have made slightly more effort and does make your outfit look better.
I am in between two sizes with shoes and I went for the bigger of the two with these, so if you are in between you would have to try them and see rather than just guessing your regular size, as you never know.
I paid 70 pounds full price for them from the Aldo shop in Uxbridge, which although it is not cheap I was happy to pay as I had not found any other shoes which I liked through my whole days shopping trip in the Chimes Centre there in Uxbridge - other shoes which were nice looking had too much of a heel to be comfy, and the flat shoes are not really my cup of tea as I never find them too comfy either as sometimes they can be a bit "flimsy"
I had not been in Aldo before but I found the costumer service good so I would go back in there again.
However, to the slightly disappointing aspect - I have not had these shoes very long but already the sole and heel is wearing out! I would have really expected them to last longer. I am going to buy them again and see if the 2nd pair lasts longer as they are now on sale for 37.49 on the website so I feel its worth another try for that price as I was very happy with them when I bought them.
I have given 4 stars as I had to reduce one star for the lack of longevity as I did really expect a bit more, but they are otherwise really good
Summary: Nice but not long lasting
