“ Brand: Matalan / Type: Boots „
As I mentioned in another review about boots all my current shoes seem to have packed in just in time for the wet and cold weather meaning every time I ventured out to work or to take my son to school I would end up with cold and wet feet. As such I needed some new boots that would keep my feet dry. I ended up on a shopping trip with a friend where I purchased some boots from new look which were brown corset style heeled boots and very trendy. Sadly these boots couldn't be worn for work as we need to wear black shoes. As such I needed some black boots too but I could not find any in new look. When we headed off to Matalan I decided to browse their shoes and boots and spotted a nice looking black boot which has a zip up the outer side as well as a buckle feature which made them stand out to me. They cost £20.00 which I thought was reasonable and so I picked them up. The boot is a leather look black material but it is not leather, obviously! It has a silver zip which goes from almost the bottom of the boot right up to the top of the boot which is on the outer side of the foot which means it stands out as a feature of the boot and makes them look just a little bit more fashionable in my opinion. The boot also features a buckle in the middle of the boot which again just adds to the look of the boot in my opinion. The heel on the boot is a mid size, just a couple of inches but it is a thick chunky heel which makes it very easy to walk in the boots. I have worn these boots with my leggings and they look quite nice to be honest. I have chunky calves sadly so they are tight at the top but not so much that they look bad. It is my intention to wear these boots for work and with jeans as the norm anyway and with both of those the boots look really nice and classy in my opinion as well as quite fashionable. The boots are comfortable and the material is soft to wear and I have had no issues with the boots rubbing at all. I find them very easy to walk in as the heel isn't too big and it is also chunky so there is no having to balance on a stiletto type heel! The boots keep my feet dry in the rain too and this is my main reason for buying them so I really cannot have any complaints at all with them. I think for £20.00 these boots are really good value to be honest, especially if you are looking for some nice boots to wear under jeans or for the office as they will look great on both occasions in my opinion. I am really pleased with my purchase from Matalan and would consider looking there again whenever I next need a pair of boots at a reasonable price. Thank you for reading my review!
