Hotter Shoes - Comfort and Style

My relationship with shoes is one of those love/hate type deals, with size 8 feet I either walk into shop to find the biggest size they've got is a 7, or they pinch, hurt and don't come in bigger sizes.


So when I was invited to find my dream pair of shoes from Hotter, I was both excited and apprehensive.

Firstly, and I am sure this is the same for a few of us, Hotter weren't exactly first on my shoe shop list. Not because I thought they'd be rubbish but because a shop who's philosophy was comfort was probably in my mind for the older generations of a family.


However I could not of been more wrong, with a mix of traditional and modern shoes there is something for all the family (minus the kids). I chose several pairs to try on, why not when I am child and husband free, and with some honest ladies surrounding me I had nothing to lose.

Last year, I had tried on a pair of ankle boots from one of my favourite clothing stores, but the 8 was too small and left me walking like an arthritic giraffe, so I had abandoned all hope of finding such a shoe.

But here I was, faced with a selection of shoes up to a 9!!! This was exciting, this was a hopeful few hours of my life where I might actually find a shoe that fits, out came my choices, the fabulous Shawbury, Lavish and Erica.

And true to their word, the shoes were so comfy, like slipping on a familiar pair of slippers. Each pair felt amazing and my choice came down to which I would wear the most?!

In the end though, I went for the Shawbury, they fit well, looked good with jeans or a dress, and was right on style for autumn.


On Sunday, I went down to London for the day. I was, as with any new shoe, a little dubious about wearing them for such a long day so soon after buying them, but I am glad I did. I had no sores, no blisters, not a single one. I spent a whole 12 hours in those shoes and although my feet ached a little (thank you fibromyalgia) it was nothing to do with the shoes.


The lovely people at Hotter are also offering my readers the chance to win a choice of either a £20 gift voucher or a Delamore Handbag, these bags are the perfect size for a night out and come in four stunning colours.
