~*~*~ George Ruched Ankle Boots ~*~*~
~ What are they? ~
These boots are a pair of black flat ankle boots, the backs are slightly lower than the front and they have a ruched effect at the top, they are quite shiny and have a thin sole.
~ Price and sizes available ~
As these are a George product they are available from Asda store that have a George department and also online at www.direct.asda.com/george.
They cost a decent £12.00 and the sizes available are ~
4, 5, 6, 6.5, 7 & 8.
~ How do they look? And would I recommend them? ~
These boots are flat, very flat. The sole has no heel at all, they have the sort of soles that are seen on ballet pumps and it feels quite rubbery. They have a nice smooth rounded toe and the whole of the boot is quite a nice trendy shape, if they had been in a tan colour I would have liked them so much more.
Apart from the ruched detail at the top part of the boot there is no other decoration to them at all, they are very plain.
I didn't actually buy these, my Nan did for my cousin, however when she got home she realised she had bought a size 5 pair that had been put on a size 7 hanger so they were obviously no good for my cousin who is a size 7, and like I do everyday I popped into my Nan's before collecting my children from school and she told me what had happened with the boots and asked me if I wanted them instead, initially I said no as I would have taken them back for her, but she said not to worry about it as she had found a different pair, very similar to these in town and bought them instead, I then offered her the money for them much to her disgust and after shouting at me not to be so stupid I happily took the boots! I wasn't about to argue with my Nan! She said she was sick of seeing me in my 'yetti' boots - UGG style boots haha!
I put them on there and then as she insisted I try them on, just like when I was a child and I just left them on then, they are comfortable and the sizes are true as I am a size 5 and these fit me perfectly.
If I am honest I probably wouldn't have bought these as I think they look a bit shiny but they look alright.
I have only worn them with leggings and a long jumper and I think that they look fine, they aren't anything to shout about but they are shoes!
They keep my feet warm and dry and feel comfortable, they don't pinch my feet or rub.
I would recommend them if you are after these style boots in black as they are as good as any non branded boots, the sole are rubbery so you don't slip and slide and for £12.00 I think they are a good deal.
They are made from a synthetic material but I don't find my feet feel especially sweaty in these and they don't make my feet smell either like some cheap shoes do.
They are very plain so will go with almost anything, you can tuck your jeans in, wear them with leggings or even wear them under you trousers.
Thanks for reading :o)
Summary: A good overall pair of boots but I just find they look too shiny!
