A couple of weeks ago I received an email asking if I would like to attend an evening with Hotter Shoes at their store in Norwich. Now, if I had been asked this five years ago then, to be honest, I would have possibly turned the invite down. You see, back then I thought Hotter Shoes were a brand that ladies of a certain age, like my mother, would wear. But I couldn’t have been more wrong!
Yes, my mother does wear Hotter Shoes – they are her favourite brand, and she will tell anyone that asks that wearing a pair is like walking on air – but upon entering the store I was immediately impressed by the variety of styles they have available.
They are all incredibly stylish and, quite frankly, utterly gorgeous.
My evening at Hotter Shoes included a short, but very interesting, presentation,where we learnt about the history of the brand from its inception right up to present day. The Norwich store (the busiest Hotter Shoes store in the country, no less!) had just undergone a revamp, and was due to have its official reopening the following day, so being able to have a mooch around beforehand was a real treat.
Everyone that attended the evening was allowed to pick a pair of Hotter Shoes to take away. The absolutely amazing shop team were on hand to help and advise as we browsed the selection.
I fell completely head over heels in love with a beautiful pair of shoes – the Donna. They reminded me of the type of show favoured by Vivienne Westwood in her fashion shows. I would have dearly loved to come home with a pair of these beauties, however, I cannot walk in heels (it’s not a pretty sight!) so, alas, I will just have to admire them from afar.
And then I saw them… the boots of my dreams. The Charlie boot. For the longest time, I have been on the hunt for a pair of ankle boots, something that I can wear day in / day out over the autumn and winter months. But, as I have very high arches I have really struggled to find a pair of Chelsea boots that do not make my feet ache within minutes of putting them on. I was certain it would be the same with the Charlie boot, so I was pleasantly surprised at just how comfortable and roomy they felt.
As I walked around the shop in them I will admit that I had my mother’s voice in my head saying ‘it’s like walking on air!’ And it turns out she’s not wrong! This is because soles of every pair of Hotter Shoes are filled with millions of air bubbles.
I’ve now been wearing my Charlie boots most days for the past three weeks and they still feel as comfortable as they did when I first put them on. They genuinely are the best pair of boots I have ever owned, and I think it’s fair to say I am now a complete Hotter Shoes convert!
