Hotter for autumn

Hotter shoes

It's been a good summer. Up until a week or so it was still warm and sunny, but then last weekend the weather turned and now, along with the autumn colours, we also have the chillier weather. Still lovely, but definitely colder. 

Once the weather turns I almost immediately start wearing ankle boots, and as I'm in trousers 99% of the time they're a footwear essential for me.

A couple of weeks ago Hotter sent me this lovely pair of Dusk boots in Petrol (£85.00).  I love the
colour which goes perfectly with jeans and makes a change from my usual black.  Made from a lovely soft velvet nubuck, they have a 'relaxed' fit and a side zip fastening. They're also incredibly comfortable.

Summit Boot £115.00
After 5 years of dog walking I desperately need a new pair of dog walking shoes, and these Gore-tex Summit boots are also calling my name.  Sturdy, weather-proof and with supportive cushioning. Perfect.

I like the fact that Hotter is a British brand, based very close to where we live in the North-west.  I think it's fair to say they have a good range of classic styles, although some of their more recent designs will appeal to younger buyers.

I've had a pair of Hotter shoes for years and their quality is worth mentioning here. Hotter is all about good quality footwear which, combined with their competitive pricing, is a good enough reason to visit one of their shops or their online store.

What about you? Have you put your summer shoes away yet?

Disclosure: I was sent the boots for review purposes, however all words, opinions and feet are my own.
