“ Brand: Hush Puppies / Type: Boots „
As previously mentioned, i now have a liking for hush puppies as they have become quite trendy in my book!!
Hush puppies originated in the USA in 1958 and are now sold in 120 countries worldwide. They sell flip flops, to shoes to boots in all legnths and i am going to review what i call my 'comfies' - the susana, which i have in black.
I bought these boots at £85 - full price but are currently at £45 on the Hush puppies website, an absolute bargain in my book! There are only a few shoe shops in my city that stock this brand,but they have their own website, so you should never have a probelm accessing these lovely shoes and boots.
The susana can be bought in 2 styles, the black leather, and the dark brown suede, but as my other boots are brown, i thought the black would be a good alternative. The size of this boot ranges from a 2.5 right up to a 10, and as you can see, hush puppies also do half sizes. The sizing. is pretty accurate too
These boots sit just below the knee and are done up by zip onn the inside leg of the boot. I have calves that are not too petite and have no problems doing these boots up, even over leggings and skinny jeans! These boots have no heel and are of rubber sole giving them a good grip whatever the weather. The leather itself is easy to clean and polish and is of great quality. I have worn these in all seasons on different occasions, and with different clothing items, such as jeans, leggings, skirts and dresses and these can look either smart or casual.
The boot is sectional lether giving it a patchwork feel and has a thick lining of black stitching on the outer leg of the boot for styling. The leather is extremely soft and i have yet to scratch or wear the leather right down ( i do wear them, honest!).
Internally, a soft fabric lines the boot from the top of the leg down, and a padded insole gives extra comfort. If it weren't for the fact that these came up to the knee, these could be slippers. It is like walking on air. I have had no blisters from rubbing or sore toes from cramming my feet in.
I wear these boots almost every day in the winter and almost have a biker boot feel to them. I think they are stylish and comfortable, perfect for a busy mum!
