Shoes Too Garish?

You all know I love my shoes. If I had a pound for the number of times I’ve been asked how many pairs of shoes I bought in New York… (none by the way, that’s none, honest). But the fact is that while I may well have exaggerated the number of pairs I need, my

Review: His ‘n’ Hers Merrell Proterra Sport Shoes

Merrell are well known for their wide range of outdoor footwear, suitable for all kinds of activities. Earlier in the summer they very kindly sent me and LincsGeek his n hers Proterra Sport shoes to try out. And yes, mine are pink and LincsGeek’s are blue… The Proterra Sport is part of Merrell’s M-Connect range,

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

Review: TevaSphere Speed

TevaSphere by Teva is said to be the most stable running shoe available. You’ll notice straight away in the photos the two features that lead to this – the support pods (I like to call them “wings”!) on either side of the shoe, and the rounded off heel – they are one of the strangest

Black Court Shoes – A Wardrobe Staple

Black court shoes are an absolute wardrobe staple for women. This type of high heeled pump is totally versatile – a pair can be worn with pretty much any dress, any pair of trousers; for work, for a meal out, for a cocktail party, a concert, for a film première  The traditional shape with narrow toe

Shoes – Flats for Going Out

I discovered the other evening that I have forgotten, completely lost the ability, to walk in high heels. I wore some old faithful black courts out for a meal with friends, and by the time I’d walked from my car to the pub where we all met my feet were killing me. I was very

Review: Brooks Lady Adrenaline GTS 13 Running Shoes from SportsShoes.com

I mentioned in my post about my dream motorcycling holiday that I need to get myself fitter and stonger over the next year if I am to enjoy it as much as I want to. One way I am doing that is by running – well, jogging – again. I used to run quite a

Review: Hi-Tec Sierra Lite Original Walking Boots – in Pink!

I have never been a girly girl. I don’t remember ever doing the pink thing. My mum can probably confirm or un-confirm this, but I’m sure that I have always much preferred green or blue or brown or black to pink, and have always preferred getting out and about than painting my nails or wearing

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

Continuing Christmas Traditions

Every family has their Christmas traditions. We all have our way of doing things, which develop over time. Due to work, my family has always celebrated Christmas on Boxing Day. As kids our we would be allowed one present on Christmas Eve, our stockings on Christmas morning, and then everything else would have to wait

Rocket Dog Beehive

You know I’ve been looking at creepers such as those made by TUK for a while… I’ve not taken the plunge mainly because I am concerned I would look a bit odd in that style shoe with my wider-than-average legs. But the other day, actually a couple of weeks ago now, Spartoo featured some new

Merrell Barefoot Train Lithe Glove

I have always been intrigued by barefoot shoes. These are shoes that offer only a protective layer between your feet and the ground – not a great deal in the way of cushioning or waterproofing or special support – just a decent sole and thin upper to stop your feet getting cut and bruised when

Playtime Tester – KEEN Bryce WP

My competition win earlier in the year entitled me to two pairs of KEEN shoes from the Spring/Summer range, and two from the Autumn/Winter range. Very thoughtful of KEEN – split up the prize so I a) had something to look forward to and b) could wait for their new releases before choosing all pairs. 

Brasher Hillmaster Socks

Socks, I have learnt over the last few years, are as important as good quality footwear. They help support, protect and cushion your feet while you walk, run or do pretty much anything else. Brasher recently sent out a really interested direct mail to its customers. I generally take those sort of mailings with a

Sale Shoe Shopping

It’s sale time everywhere at the moment, and I need my shoe fix, so I had a look at the Spartoo website to see what bargains there are to be had. I wondered what there was around the £20-25 mark – I wasn’t looking for anything inparticular but was hoping to find something for work
