When you sink your feet for the first time into a new pair of shoes from Hotter, they feel so soft and comfortable that they remind you of that one pair of favourite shoes that you have worn and worn. No blisters, no discomfort, just a lovely feeling whenever you put them on. That alone is a huge selling point for me, as a teacher, I am pacing around a classroom all day and I need comfortable shoes that aren’t going to make my feet tired and sore.
I first discovered Hotter in the summer when they asked me to do a review for them and I was so impressed with their shoes, that I have been back and bought a couple more pairs since then which I lived in throughout the summer. So when they contacted me about doing another review for them, I was thrilled as I had been looking at getting another pair of their shoes for the winter anyway.
I chose the Shake shoes as they looked very similar to my favourite summer pair and they looked light, flat and comfortable, but sturdy enough to wear during the colder, damper weather. I have pretty much worn them every day now for two weeks and I can honestly say that I love them. They make a huge difference to the way my feet feel at the end of the day, gone are the tired aching feet that I got after a day of wearing my boots. They are also good whatever the weather too, this week has seen sunshine, rain, frost and even hail stones and they are a really good sturdy pair of shoes. I am fairly sensible when it comes to shoes and so I chose them in black, but the Shake shoe comes in a range of gorgeous colours and I am sorely tempted to get the same pair in green too as they are lovely and A; surprise surprise, would like a small pair in boysenberry (pink).
I really do recommend you check out these and the other shoes and boots in the Hotter range. I have spotted a rather nice pair of boots which would be a perfect Christmas present and I will be dropping my husband lots of hints this week and suggesting he takes a look at their website too.
I was sent this pair of Shake shoes for the purpose of this review. All opinions and images are my own.
