Amelia Faux boots
I bought a few pairs of boots from Garage over the winter months, mainly because they are very reasonably priced and having bought a few pairs of flat boots, I found that they do last a decent length of time. I bought the boots online from www.garageshoes.co.uk, but they are also available in stores.
These are high- very high being 14cm heel and 3 cm platform, so they were always going to be for going out wear and definitely not for wearing in the ice and snow!
The boots are round toe and come to the knee. They have a zip at the back and have a slight stretch so they are pull on and therefore nicely fitted with no sagginess at the area just below the knee. One of the nice things about them is that they do actually come to just below my knees, and don't stop short making them look neither long nor short. Whilst the boots are faux suede, they do look and feel like suede although for the price, I know they are not the real thing. They are quite soft and have some nice detailed stitching around the ankle and down the side from the ankle area. They also have a tassel at the back which adds some interest, and the whole boot isn't completely flat which I like.
The boots cost £29.99 and although they have been worn quite a few times over the winter months, even in wet weather, they are showing no signs of wear or tear, the tassel is still firmly intact and the suede is still on the heels- always a bonus! The only thing I have noticed is a few white marks where they got very wet but this is easily brushed off with a suede brush.
They are available in sizes 4, 5, 6 and 7. I have the size 5, which have proved to be true to size and not at all tight fitting, so not discomfort on my actual feet and toes.
This style of boot is available in Taupe, black and brown; I have the black
I like the style of the boots and they look good with skirts dresses, leggings and skinny jeans. Unless the jeans are quite wide legged they are slightly too thick to wear underneath but anyway, if hidden underneath an item of clothing, some of the detailing is lost.
They are very reasonably priced for the quality and I have no doubt that I will be able to wear them next winter. Because of the height of the heel and the wedge for me they are definitely not everyday boots, but they are ideal for a night out as they can be worn with lots of different clothes and can be smart or more casual. Again due to the height they are not the most comfortable boots I have ever worn so no good for real walking but they don't nip my feet.
Decent enough fashion boots
