There is no doubt that this has been the wettest few months I can remember here in Essex. Only yesterday I decided to water the lettuce seedlings that have been overwintering in my greenhouse, and on picking up my two metal watering cans to fill them I noticed they were full to the brim with rain water already! Needless to say that this weather has demanded some strong winter footwear, as not only have we had endless rain, but also some very low temperatures as well as snow to contend with.
Last September I was looking on Amazon to see if I could find some comfortable boots to see me through the coming seasons. I wasn't looking for high heeled boots- I have those but reserve them for times when I want to look really fashionable, but most of the time I favour comfort over fashion. I noticed some rather cosy looking boots with the rather long name " Spy Love Womens Suede Fur Sheepskin Style Flat Ankle Boots "Valeria" over on Amazon, and carefully scoured the reviews of the product that Amazon allows to be displayed underneath. I was very impressed with the 4.5* rating awarded to these boots, and that together with the low price of £15.99 plus £3.95 delivery convinced me of the need to try these out for myself - and I am so glad that I need for reasons I will explain during the course of this review.
Delivery was very quick so I was very impressed with the marketplace seller " So You Shoes" who uses the Amazon shop front, and packaging was good and solid. This high quality delivery is reflected accurately in the 4.7 out of 5 feedback rating this seller has built up over 5638 sales in the last 12 months.
I have very wide feet and boots can be an issue with me as my calves are quite chunky too, so I am always nervous about buying shoes and boots online. I also don't own a lot of pairs as I hate storing them, so tend to use them and lose them fairly frequently, so like to keep the costs down whilst still seeking quality. These boots are fantastic. They are wide fitting and are lined with the most gorgeous soft fur lining, and are as warm as toast. Comfort wise they fit snugly and are ideal for trudging through snow and ice as they have an excellent grip underneath. In the recent snowy weather I felt safe and warm outside wearing them, and they have given an excellent performance all through the winter months especially on ice.
What I love about this range is the choice of styles and colours. You can choose black chestnut or grey, and these can be with either button or toggle closures. I chose grey and the button closures which are lovely, as I have a grey White Stuff winter jacket that I love and which goes with them perfectly, but the other colours are lovely as are the toggle option styles.
Having spent some time reading the reviews I ascertained that they were generous in sizing so I went for my normal size 6 and there was still plenty of room for thick winter socks to be worn underneath. I was so grateful for this information as I think a 7 would have been too big.
Boots of this quality are normally very expensive indeed and I think these are incredible value as I can vouch for their ability to handle all weather conditions, whilst still imparting warmth and comfort. Above all they have excellent longevity attributes- mine are still in excellent condition and could easily cope with another winter or two no problem. I love the chunky nature of these boots that resemble Uggs with their soft sheepskin style lining and solid soles. They look fantastic with jeans and are ideal for dog walking or for winter shopping trips in snowy weather.
I used to be a person who bought expensive boots and shoes because many cheaper alternatives were poor quality and were too narrow for my feet. I think in recent years there has been a surge of very high quality manufacturers coming onto the footwear market producing shoes that are of an excellent quality. Deichmann on the high street are superb for boots and shoes at good prices, and these boots are up there with them in my opinion. Quality, warmth, comfort and style for a modest outlay- highly recommended.
Summary: Fantastic winter boots
