“ Brand: Evans / Type: Boots „
This is a review of Evans high leg boots. I feel well qualified to review as I have them in both tan and black!
I was drawn to the boots when I saw them on display in Evans. I go there for shoes as I have big feet and they sell shoes in large sizes, wide in width with extra calf room in their boots too. I have had kitten heeled boots from them before and wore them a lot so always have a look when the winter weather approaches.
The first thing I liked about the boots was the heel, it's a wedge shape that is 5cm high but they don't feel that high due to the supportive slope the wedge provides.
I do like the tan boots best and the leather is nicer on them but black boots also go well with everything so I wear them both quite a lot.
There is a small triangle of elastic at the top of the boot which gives a little more room if you need it. Handy if you want to wear them over jeans or trousers or thick socks and your legs are well made like mine!
I'm not good in heels but sometimes you want to look smart and trainers and flats just don't do the job. I couldn't do a ten mile treck in these but I could do a shopping trip or night out easily.
The shelf price is £99 for these boots but you can usually go buy them when there is a discount on. I tried both pairs on at full price. Walked away. Came back and bought the tan ones with 20% off and then bought the black ones online with 30% and a further 20% and then free postage. I found codes for the latter on Martin's money saving expert website. I ended up paying £55 for the black ones and £80 for the tan ones but you can't get the tan ones on the website for some reason and I do like them best so don't mind the price tag. Hopefully they will last me many years.
Each pair of boots came with spare heel ends so you can replace them when they wear down. Mine are doing well so far and I have had them a couple of months.
The customer services in the shop are excellent when I have had reason to return items. Staff are cheerful, friendly and helpful. They make a real fuss of my daughter when we pop in so it's always nice to return there.
..and another thing...
I also got these boots in a shorter style with a slightly lesser heel as the wedge style seems to suit my feet and you never know what might happen with next season's styles. I just can't do mega high and am tall anyway so these are quite enough height for me.
I buy knee high socks to go under my long boots, and not because I want to look like a schoolgirl! I find them comfy and they help keep your legs nice and warm too.
As you can tell I am a great fan of these boots. Although expensive, anyone with specialist needs like me with feet and calf size is greatful to find a pair that fit and look good. I would recommend you go try some on as you will find it difficult to walk away once you've tried them and not because they are uncomfy!! I feel really good in these boots and feel confident that they look nice on me. My legs are not something I particularly want to draw attention to but when you need new boots it's good to know where to go.
