Winter 2012 was cold, wet and for much of the UK, snow covered! Causing considerable disruption last Winter’s snowfall saw schools close and roads and transport links grind to halt.
Despite the disruption, many families were able to enjoy impromptu days off sledging, building snowmen and having snow balls fights! Of course, many of us were caught out by the bad weather, with thousands of customers flocking to Shoe Zone stores to stock up on seasonal footwear, in particular wellies, which were selling at a rate of 50 pairs per minute in January!
While cold days can bring fun, for many families the financial challenge of keeping the home warm can be difficult. Rarely a day passes when we do not hear of yet another price hike in our heating bills. As fuel bills soar, managing the household budget is essential, which is why savvy shoppers are turning to Shoe Zone for their Winter footwear!
The 2013 Winter range not only offers on trend footwear at affordable prices, but also the Shoe Zone buying team have sourced designs that offer that little bit extra in terms of wearability. For Winter this means, heavy grip soles that will offer some resistance against frosty mornings, faux fur linings for added warmth and wellies to keep out the wet.
This year, expect shearling and faux-fur topped riding boots to be a wardrobe staple, not only do they work well with jeans or dresses but are a practical choice as the weather worsens. Also on trend are biker and Chelsea boots, both of which help work this year’s military chic look to perfection. For men, the range also includes biker-style boots as well as distressed ankle boots, western-style and hiking boots for when the weather really takes a turn for the worse! Wellies and snow boots are also available, with wellies starting at just £7.99!
Finally, the Shoe Zone kids range includes adorable ‘mini-me’ versions of the adults range, meaning your little one can look super-cute at prices that won’t break the bank. For boys, check out the Walkright Velcro ankle boot in brown or navy or the character branded snow boots to keep them warm and toasty on the school run. For little girls the range includes Walkright faux-fur collar calf boots in brown or black as well as super-trendy, black studded ankle biker boots and many more!
While we don’t know what this Winter has in store for us weather wise, Shoe Zone stores are ready for whatever the Great British climate throws at us; with stocks of Winter boots and of course, wellies ready and waiting!
