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.
