“ Brand: Forever 21 / Type: Boots „
This winter it has suddenly got freezing which is why I have been shopping around for boots for a while. I do find though that even with discounts going on that some are ridiculously expensive which is what took me so long to find what I wanted. I knew the style that I wanted but it was just a matter of it not being too pricey which is why when I got an email through from Forever 21 saying that all boots had 30% off and free delivery that I had to have a look at their boots range and see what was on offer. I came across these buckled riding boots which looked exactly like the style that I had been searching for and the price was to good to be true, I just hoped they would look nice when they arrived.
These boots are black in colour and have a buckle detail wrapped around the ankle with silver metal. These are made of faux leather which is why they were a bit cheaper but they have a 1" heel approximately which isn't too high just the slightest rise and from the shaft to the highest point is about 16", on me they stop just under my knee. The platform height is 0.25" so is basically flat with the slightest bit of height to it, these came in US sizing as Forever 21 is a US shop but it was standard sizing really from 3 up to a size 8 UK foot. These are very light to hold for boots which is great and the top part is quite flimsy and doesn't stay upright when not on.
FOREVER 21 BUCKLED RIDING BOOTS
So, when these boots arrived they came in a nice big box and were well protected, to take them out the top part that goes around the calf looked quite wide but in actual fact it isn't when they are on. Now, the only problem I have had with these boots so far is the actual getting them on for the first time, they were so tight and I had to use a shoe horn to get into these, it took a good five minutes of pushing to get these on. However, once on they weren't tight it was just narrow at the ankle because these had never been tried on. After wearing them for a full day they now have some more room and I no longer need a shoe horn, I just slip them on and off much more easily.
After wearing these for a month now, they are just so warm and keep my feet toasty in the winter. I can move my toes around comfortably in these with my socks on but yet they feel perfectly snug and don't slip off my feet when I walk. Buying a US size I was a bit apprehensive that these wouldn't fit good but they are a perfect fit and really are easy to walk in. I think the part I love the most is that when walking these are padded on the insole and so my foot feels really comfortable and cushioned with this, I have never had this with a boot and the soles have a slight spring to them to make walking that bit more easy and really quite a comfortable experience.
The buckle can be tightened if you want but it adds no tightness to the ankle it is there just as a feature really but it is nice and gives the boot something extra to look at. These boots feel really well made for the price paid as they are a strong leather and to take them off, they just require a slight pull and they should slip off easily, no problems. They are also very easy to clean and so far I haven't scratched the boots and they still look as good as new. These are round toe boots and the style is great to wear with everything. I normally wear these boots with my jeans and they look great like this but they also go with leggings it depends really.
I couldn't say anymore about these boots as I love them that much. They are keeping my feet warm this winter and the quality is very impressive, they are sturdy, so comfortable on my feet and at the same time as all of this, they are also very trendy and they look stylish on and not at all cheap. Forever 21 is a great brand and these boots have sold out online it seems but I did see them in the shop when I was last in. The offer is still on for 30% off so if you leave near a Forever 21 store it is worth trying these. The black colour works very nicely with the buckle detail and the fit is good on these, I am a UK7 and bought a US 9 and it was a perfect fit.
These boots can be bought in all Forever 21 stores for £22.93 which is the price with the discount as originally they were about £35 it is a true bargain indeed.
