“ Brand: New Look / Type: Boots / Gender: For women „
With the colder weather making an appearance suddenly (well it seemed suddenly to me!) I was left very much in need of some black boots. I have some brown boots in my footwear collection already but I really wanted some black ones to go with my black leggings and so on. Moaning on to my mother about me wanting some nice new black boots when we were looking around town she decided to buy me a pair so off we went in search of some.
However I have really skinny ankles and calves and we seemed to go into every shoe shop looking for some and nothing fitted me right at all, in fact my leg resembled a flower in a huge vase (my mums description not mine!). We were exhausted and about to give up totally on the idea when I remembered that my friend who works in New Look told me about the kids shoes and boots in there that are vat free and go up to about a size 5 so off we trundled to there for a nosey. When we got there though there wasn't a very big or good collection of kids shoes however there was a huge collection of women's and all at reasonable prices and as soon as I spotted these I fell in love with them and was praying that they would fit me and they did!
These are available in sizes 3-9 and both brown and black colour options are available to purchase, as to which of course I have the black option. They are calf length boots these and the base of the shoe section is like a tough leather though it is isn't leather and it is quite dull and not too shiny. The fabric used is not listed on the website or or on the boots by the way!. Up the leg it is quilted and waterproof and made of a soft material with the inside being slightly fleecy then up the outside of the boot there is a long and sturdy silver zip (which is for decoration only) and to the bottom and the top of the boot there are large silver buckles which you can adjust ever so slightly but to be fair I find them useless and it doesn't matter because they fit me perfectly anyway and I assume really that they are there once again for decoration really!
To the inside of each boot there is a zip to the bottom of the boot which is black and quite discreet and that's there on each boot so that you can get your foot in at a bit of an angle otherwise you wouldn't get them on! The inside sole of the boot is slightly shiny and black and quite flat in shape with no added comfort given and the heel on these boots is chunky and about an inch high though they feel flat. These have raised bumps and ridges to the bottom of them to give a bit of grip too.
I absolutely love these boots and add to that the style of these is all the rage at the moment! They look great on and with skinny legs like mine its not easy to get a good fit so these are perfect for me. They are comfortable and feel safe to walk in and are lovely and warm with no droughts getting down the sides of them as they fit me so well! They don't give at all which was something that i was worried about due to the soft fabric material the legs are made out of and I love the fact that they flat on and I really can (and do!) walk for miles in them. The foot of the boot is quite large and there is plenty of room so that my toes aren't squashed up and they go with so much of my wardrobe!
A really lovely quality boot these are and they really do get the thumbs up from me so thank you Mum for these...I'm one very happy lady!
