~*~*~ George Faux Fur Lined Boots ~*~*~
Fact 1 - I hate the cold.
Fact 2 - I really hate my feet being cold.
So as you may see from the two facts above I am not a fan of being cold. I really hate going out on cold winter days and feeling really chilly. However as much as I may despise going out in the cold there is no way I can avoid it. I have to go out in the morning to take my children to school, I have to go out during the day to do endless things and then I have to go out in the afternoon to collect my children from school. Since moving house to be nearer family and the childrens school I decided I would give up my car in a bid to save money. My hubby still has his car that I am insured on but I generally now walk everywhere. I don't mind walking at all, in fact I quite like it but whereas before I would just throw on any pair of shoes that were to hand if I wanted to pop to the shop etc. I now put more thought into my footwear as I don't think there's anything worse than having to walk around with freezing cold feet. I own numerous pairs of boots and included in these numerous pairs are two pairs of these George Faux Fur Lined Boots.
My local Asda had these stocked in two colours - Black and tan and I bought both, they were priced at a decent £10 so I didn't feel like they were breaking the bank.
These boots are more or less based on the ever popular UGG boots and they are very much the same style. The quality isn't as good as the more expensive UGG boots but for £10 you really cannot complain.
I have other boots very similar to these that I bought in a local shoe shop for the same price and I still continue to buy these boots now.
I have longer versions of these boots but these boots come just above ankle height. The insides are covered in a fluffy faux fur and the outer of the boots is a soft faux suede type material, they are very soft and very warm when on my feet. What I like about the style of these particular boots is that they have a button opening on the side, this doesn't need to be undone ever as the boots are nice and loose anyway but I think it does add to the attractiveness.
The black boots have a black fur inside and the tan boots have a creamy white fur inside.
I generally wear them with leggings or skinny jeans as they tuck into the boots with ease.
My big bugbear with these boots is that they are absolutely useless in the rain, they are in no way waterproof and should you accidentally step in any puddles you will really know about it!
What I do like is that they come out fine after being popped in the washing machine, it does them no harm at all, I have also put them in the tumble dryer and this has had no adverse effects either.
I also like that they do a fine job at keeping my feet toasty warm which is really important to me as i feel that when my feet are warm I generally feel warm too.
I have owned these for about two years now and whilst I admit to not wearing these everyday they ahve certainly lasted just fine. The soles are a strange foamy plastic and this does look thinner than it did when new but is still in one piece and still firmly attached to the sole of the boot!
I do find that on some surfaces these boots can turn me into an ice skater! If I walk into Asda from the wet outside in these boots I will slide along the floor like a fool! However I have learned from this and now walk very carefully until I think the soles have dried off.
These are perfect for keeping my feet warm on cold winter days but I really would not recommend them in wet weather!
Thanks for reading :o) x
Summary: A great bargain priced pair of boots.
