Bring out the Black Boots

Today I went into a shoe shop in town to check how much a pair of black boots I’ve had my eye on were. These boots, by Dr Martens, have been in the store for quite some time – maybe even this time last year – but I’ve been good and have waited until the

Review: Merrell Verterra Mid Sport GTX

Comfort and support are the two most important features of any footwear you wish to wear for walking. Everything else, the way the shoe looks and especially the colour, is secondary. But it is rather wonderful when you receive a brand new shoe that offers comfort and support as well as fantastic looks. Meet the new-for-this-season Merrell Verterra

Airstep Becomes A.S.98

There is no doubting it: autumn is here. There was even a hint of ground frost this morning as the overnight temperature grazed just a couple of degrees above freezing. The perfect excuse to pull out your favourite parka – like this one from Esprit. The thing I love about coats like this is that they can

Casual Wedges for a Day on the Cobbles

When you live in a city where cobble stones are a regular feature on the streets, wedges are a vital part of a girl’s wardrobe. You get the height that you would from any pair of heels alongside the stability of having a flat sole. I normally think of wedges as being styled for a

Review: Hi-Tec St Anton Snow Boots

Every weekend for the last three, at least, one of the red tops has run a “breaking” news story telling us we’re in for Arctic weather conditions in the coming days. Apart from some cold fog and some icy starts to the day it is yet to materialise. And whether we choose to believe the

UGG Australia for Autumn

Oh Autumn you are such a beautiful season. You give me so many opportunities to enjoy the change from summer to winter. You are so colourful with your browns, reds and oranges. And you are the signal I need to put my summer shoes away and get out my favourite kind of footwear – boots.

Review: Lightweight Walking with Brasher Supalite Active GTX

I love trying out walking boots, and the latest pair I’ve been testing out are these Brasher Supalite Active GTX which to be honest are more like trainers to wear because they are so light. Designed for leisurely walks rather than high mountain trails, because they are rather like trainers they have an out-of-the-box comfort

Thinking About Autumn… Shoes!

Is it too early to think about autumn? It’ll (unfortunately) be here very soon – and I’ve already noticed the autumn/winter collections making their way onto the high street. When I think autumn I automatically think brown. Not a rich chocolate brown, but a brighter tan brown that matches the leaves as they start to

Introducing Air Step Boots – A New Favourite

I came across a new-to-me brand of shoes this evening over on the Spartoo website – Air Step caught my attention thanks to its range of slightly unusual looking biker-style boots.  I’m very good at sticking with what I know when it comes to my feet, but I can’t take my eyes off the different

Review: Brasher Hillwalker Socks

I have a good selection of Brasher socks now and I have to say right at the start of this review that I really rate them. I have learnt over the last few years that if you buy decent socks and shoes your feet will thank you. This time I am reviewing the Brasher Hillwalker

My New Look Wish List

I often wonder if I’m getting too old for New Look, but each time I step inside the Lincoln store I spot tops, jumpers, dresses and (especially) shoes that I love. So hey, I guess I’m still young!  I spotted these new ankle boots the other day and decided I needed them, as often happens

Review: Hi-Tec Sierra Sina 200 WPI Snow Boots

The Hi-Tec Sierra Sina 200 WPI shoes are warm, waterproof and durable snow boots designed to keep your feet warm and dry whatever the weather. With a leather and nubuck upper, they incorporate a 200g Thinsulate insulation, a moisture wicking lining, and a Vibram rubber outsole ideal for snowy and icy conditions. I chose these myself from the current Hi-Tec

Review: Stuffits

The problem with our hobbies being walking, motorcycling and skiing is that we often end up with a line of boots by the back door drying or airing out. Stinky damp boots. Yuk! I came across Stuffits at the end of last year and just had to try them out. The company was very kind

Playtime Tester Review: KEEN Hoodoo High Lace Snow Boots

It seems like a very long time since I won the KEEN Playtime Tester prize… but it hasn’t been until this last couple of weeks that I’ve been able to give the KEEN Hoodoo High Lace snow boots a really good try. I will be honest and say I very nearly bought this pair of boots last year before

Shoes: For the Love of Dr Martens

I’ve featured Dr Martens on here before. I love them. They are comfortable and look fantastic – they are shoes that speak to my adventurous nature and go with just about everything. I write this having just got home from work, still wearing my beloved patent black boots with leggings and a grey dress. Definitely
