I own many pairs of boots; they are essential to my Autumn & Winter wardrobe. With mammoth school runs to tackle in unpredictable British weather, I like to be prepared for all eventualities. Yes – I own wellies too!
As a massive shoe lover, I was delighted to be invited to become a Shoe Zone Mummy and I was so excited to find that my first ever Shoe Zone review was for a pair of boots.
Riding boots and the quilted styling seem to be very popular at the moment, so I chose these rather lovely Black High Leg Quilted Riding Boots.
At just £24.99, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but when they arrived, I was pleasantly surprised at both the quality and the look & feel of them. They are lovely, comfortable boots and I’m very impressed. I am a standard size 5 and these seem a tiny bit on the roomy side – this is a positive thing for me though, as it means I can comfortably wear warm socks when it is really cold outside!
I really like the design – they look like they cost more than £24.99 and the high leg looks great with skinny jeans, leggings or skirts. The quilted backs and buckle detailing finish them perfectly; they look smart and are fantastic for everyday wear.
They are a little snug on the calf, but not uncomfortable (I am a size 16). The only thing I’m not too sure about are the zip fastenings. The main outer zip is for decoration only and the inner side zip fastening gives a little bit of extra room when pulling the boots on or off, but not much so both are fairly redundant. Personally, I’d rather a full zip fastening than a pull on boots, but for the price tag, they are great value for money.
