“ Brand: Henry Fleece / Type: Boots „
I can never resist a sale. I will admit that I have a problem. But this is one 'OOOOOH SALE!!!111!!!' purchase I've made that I don't regret. I was after some boots a while ago, you know, when they were popular, but could never get my hands on any. Schuh were having a sale and while I was browsing I stumbled upon the Henry Fleece Boots. Originally a rather steep £79.99, they were reduced to £29.95 so naturally I snapped them up.
The boots themselves are dark brown leather. The sole is not like my usual heels, there's actually some grip, which is pretty helpful when you're walking on cobbles (or are a bit tiddled and the floor keeps moving). The heel is 8cm, wooden and makes a rather pleasing sound on the kitchen floor. I know that's neither here nor there, but I just wanted to point that out.
The boots themselves have a tab on the back to help you pull them on if you're having trouble. The inside is lined with lovely soft fleece and although it's no longer winter my feet don't get hot in them, although I haven't worn them for very long periods of time. At the top of the boot are hooks for the laces, although the laces themselves aren't really long enough to use the top hook, so I loop them round the second hook. It still doesn't leave much of the laces left for tying, but it's a minor quibble.
The great thing about these boots is that they are very versatile. You can dress them up or down, they look fab with jeans or girly flowery dresses so whatever your style, they'll suit just about anyone. They can be worn all year round too, so you'll definitely get the wear out of them. The fact that they're dark means you can even get away with wearing them with black and on Schuh's website the model is wearing black tights with hers.
Perhaps most importantly, these are seriously comfortable boots. I normally live in pumps and very rarely wear any kind of heel but these were very easy to walk in (even over tricky cobbles!) and very comfortable. I usually wear new shoes around the house first to break them in to avoid blisters but I didn't bother with these and my feet were in mint condition when I took them off after first wearing them out!
The website only has sizes 3 and 6 left of this style, so if you want them get them quick! Although the laces are a bit too short, these are a great quality boot and extremely versatile; it's not a pair that will gather dust in your wardrobe. At £29.95 I do think these are a real bargain.
