“ Brand: New Look / Type: Boots „
I was browsing through the new look website when I came across these Fluff Cuff Boots in the teen section, I have very small feet that are a size 2-3 so generally I do have to shop in the kid's department. This can be a bit of a bother if I want something more glamourous but nowadays shoes for small feet are a lot more trendy. Whilst these boots might not be glamourous they still appealed to me, I liked the look of them and they looked comfy too so I decided to order myself a pair. (These boots are available for £16.99 online and come in sizes 1-4)
The actual boots are a dusty grey sort of colour with the upper being suedette and as you can see from the dooyoo picture they have extremely flat soles, no heel at all really but I don't mind very flat shoes (I tend to totter in heels lol) The cuff part sort of reminds me of sheepskin but these boots are man made. On trying them on I discovered that they were indeed very comfy as well as looking nice, however they are not waterproof! Be prepared to get soggy if you go out in snowy slush or step in a puddle! Saying that, I'm sure in the event of a light shower you will be fine, it's when there's a downpoar that you have to worry! :P
I think these boots are very versatile and I have worn them with leggings and jeans and they look great. I love the white stitching detail as I think it adds a little something to the shoe and slightly lessens the plainess about them. I looked online and grey was the only colour they were available in but I think they were once available in tan, correct me if I'm wrong.
The care guide when I bought them online simply says "man made" so I'm unsure as to what the washing guidelines are, I've not washed mine yet so I must admit they look a little worse for wear! They may be comfy shoes and look good but I think that the price is a little steep, especially as they aren't waterproof and seem to get dirty and stained quite quickly. If you buy a pair you should wear them on dry days (consult your weatherman) or skirt around any puddles! For this reason I give them 3 stars.
I bought these boots in New Look just before Chrimbo, after seeing them reduced in price to just £7. I wasn't too struck on the style of them even as I bought them but I was hoping it would grow on me, and failing that I reasoned that I could pass them on to my daughter if I didn't like them after a couple of wears.
They are a faux suede upper with furry cuff and lining, they are not actually what I would term a bona fide Cuff Boot as the fur is simply the turn down at the top of the boot whereas I consider Cuff Boots to be a bit more special than this. Although generally equally ugly. They have a very soft feel to start with, although be warned that this does not last and don't be disappointed when after a couple of wears they begin to show a shine and creases aplenty.
The fur is appalling quality, even when brand new it feels extremely sythetic to the touch and if you attempt to wear these boots without socks then you'll find yourself with very itchy feet. I actually visited the doctor due to this itchiness as I was pregnant at the time and itchy extremities can be a signal that something is wrong, did I feel a knob when I realised it was the boots causing it and not a serious blood disorder! I hate the way the fur 'squelches' as I'm walking, I'm talking dry fur here with enough static electricity to power the whole of Birmingham!
The rubber sole is very thin, surprisingly the boots feel quite comfortable to walk in but due to the thinness of the sole I don't think they would last very long if you were attempting to do lots of walking while wearing them. It's not particularly non-slip either, which is not good in a pair of boots as it's usually cold (icy) weather when you will want to be wearing them.
AND they're not waterproof! How stupid is that? A pair of boots which will leave your feet wringing wet as soon as you go out in the rain or snow! To be fair, if you just happen to be walking in a quick shower your feet will probably stay dry but any length of wet weather will leave the boots wet to the point of feeling slimy and your socks will need wringing out when you get home. Horrible. I don't find them particularly warm and cosy even when they're dry and there's a strange seam inside the toe of each boot which rubs horribly against my skin and is extremely irritating.
The style didn't grow on me, the design of the toe reminds me of the type of shoes Dick Whittington wears in the story book and once I had that image in my head I couldn't shake it! I didn't even bother giving them to my daughter as a trendy eleven year old would definitely turn her nose up at these vile looking boots. Oh, I have the tan pair by the way, as the grey version above looks absolutely revolting in the flesh! As do the tan ones if I'm honest!
I suppose I shouldn't complain for £7, but really as I only wore them a handful of times I will complain as that was £7 which could have been spent on a nicer pair of shoes. The sizing is all to cock too, proved by the fact that I am a size four but actually needed a size six when I bought these boots. It's usual in New Look for their shoes to be a size out as they do tend to come small, but two whole sizes?
I bought these bought just before Christmas as a pressie for myself. I purposely went to New Look for a pair of boots, but not with any particular style in mind, I have so many pairs of shoes/boots etc... I just simply wanted another pair of boots!
I saw these hanging on a rack, and loved them straight away. They have a rubber sole which is ideal for the icy conditions that we have had recently. The only drawback is... they are not waterproof, so not really suitable boots for the snow we have had, but saying that, they have been fine in the rain. (Unless you step in a big puddle!!!).
These boots have a fab fluffy lining which keeps my feet nice and warm. They can be worn with the cuff folded over or up and they come to just over the ankle.
They are not only trendy but very comfortable too, they look great with leggings and jeans alike, which makes them pretty versatile boots.
They cost £16.99 which I think is pretty cheap for such a nice pair of boots.
They fit perfectly which makes them a really comfortable boot. I have worn them loads and they still look fab. They have a soft suede effect which makes a nice change to my usual leather boots.
They seems well made and even after wearing them often they have no fraying of the material and the stitching is all still intact.
I think they came in a choice of 3 colours, black, cream/beige, and grey. I opted for the grey, they looked nicer in this colour I thought, and made a change really from black!
They are great flat, round toe boots, which are suitable for everyday wear.
I actually bought a pair of these Fluff Cuff boots from New Look as a pair of indoor shoes as I was sick of wearing out cheap slippers, and figured I should pay a little bit more, £16.99 in fact, and buy some harder wearing shoes. I thought that given these are capable of outside use they would be better for in my house, where we only wear outdoor shoes in the kitchen and we take off dirty footware before going into the rest of the house.
The boots are very simple looking, but they looked warm, which was what drew me to them as I do get cold feet in the house sometimes and prefer my feet to be toastie warm. They're not the most stylish of boots slash slippers, but my pair, which is black do look nicer than many and suit what I want them for.
As soon as I tried the Fluff Cuff boots on I thought they were very comfortable and has a cosy fleecy lining throughout which I found to be very comfortable and soft on my feet. The lining runs throughout the whole boot so they really are very soft and gentle on feet.
The outside of the boot is made from a suede-feel material which is soft to the touch.
The sole of the boots are tougher with a rubbery feel to the synthetic material. The soles don't have much grip to them so I have to be careful if I walk on any of the more slippery wooden surfaces in the house, but other than that I've found they've performed great, even if I'm not using them outdoors as I should be!
When it gets cold, I sometimes unfold the 'cuff' of the boot so it reaches further up my leg, and this keeps me even warmer. Although I purely wear these boots indoors, on dry days I don't see why they wouldn't be fine for outdoor use. I wouldn't recommend them in bad weather though by any means - I can imagine the material soaking up rain and puddles and they're not remotely waterproof, and they'd be even worse on ice!
For what I use them for - hardy indoor shoes / slippers - these have been great. I've had them several months now and there's barely any wear on them at all, so they're proving quite durable. For the price I paid I am pleased with them and would definitely recommend them to others.
I first saw these boots while shopping in a New Look store a couple of months ago. Having size 2 feet, I'd headed over to the teenagers' section where there's always a range of shoes in smaller sizes, and these boots caught my eye. They looked comfortable, warm and cosy- perfect for winter. I picked up a pair in my size and tried them on. They looked great with my jeggings, but the pinching around my toes was a sure sign that they were too small. I usually have the opposite problem with shoes, but I've noticed that New Look seem to make their shoes slightly smaller (much to my delight!). Unfortunately, they didn't have these in stock in a size 3, so I ordered them from the website.
These boots are available in three colours; black, beige and grey. I opted for the latter because I thought it would go with most of my clothes, plus I felt it was a safe bet, being the colour I'd tried on in the shop. When the boots arrived, I was a bit surprised by how dark the boots were- I'd remembered them as being mid-grey (like the ones pictured), whereas these were very dark, with a bluish tinge. Perhaps the harsh store lighting was to blame, or maybe they'd faded while on display. Either way, I wasn't as keen on this colour, and it didn't go as well with my clothes as I'd expected.
Trying the boots on, I was again disappointed to find that they weren't particularly comfortable. The insoles were very hard, and the only thing to cushion my steps was the fleecey lining that covers the whole inside of the boot. Having spent most of the summer wearing my super-comfortable Fly London sandals has spoilt me a bit- I now know what a well made shoe feels like, and this wasn't it! They had only cost me £16.99 though, so I was prepared to rough it a bit at that price.
The one thing that was exactly as I'd remembered was the design of the boot. Made of suedette, with synthetic soles and the aforementioned fleecey lining, these boots have round toes and are flat heeled. The simple designed is made more interesting by the 'fluff cuff', made by folding over the top of the boot to reveal the lining. The fold isn't secured in any way, so you can straighten it out if you want and hide the fleecey section to reveal a simple, ruched boot that comes slightly higher up the leg- I think it looks a bit smarter this way, and goes better with certain outfits, while the folded look is more casual. I really like this versatility- it's like having two pairs of boots in one! The soles of the boots are slightly textured, but don't look particularly 'grippy'- I'll be proceeding with caution while wearing these on any slippery floors!
Having been initially disappointed by the rather spartan feel of the boots on my feet, wearing them out for the first time was much better than I'd expected. Lack of padding aside, the boots were actually quite comfortable, because they were a good fit- they didn't rub or pinch at all. I'm sure the fleecey lining helps in this respect, as there are no hard edges in the boot to rub against your feet. The lining also makes the boots quite warm and snug- I'm looking forward to having these on hand (well, on foot!) as the wintry weather sets in.
So, despite the quirks in colour and sizing, I'm pleased I bought these boots- I think they're going to be featuring largely in my winter wardrobe! They're perfect for casual, everyday wear, and are great value for under £20.
