The adorable Hodge, aka The Husband spends his days in work boots and his evenings and weekends in trainers. I love it when he puts the effort in and dresses up a little bit when we go out, it’s nice seeing him look smart, for somehow he miraculously becomes extra good looking. This week he’s been trying out a pair of slouchy desert boots from Jacamo.
The slouchy desert boot is a classic but fashionably attractive design. We ordered the lovely deep chocolate colour boot, though it’s also available in stone, which is a paler brown boot. It’s made from suede and the sole is sturdy but not too thick. They look brilliant with jeans worn on a casual night out and I think they are a nice looking autumn boot.
I asked Hodge to put it to the man test. He walked to the pub and back wearing them. Did they rub? No, they were comfortable, he has one foot slightly wider than the other which means sometimes one shoe rubs or the other shoe is virtually falling off, but he informed me that these were comfortable and fine to wear.
He stood at the bar for an hour or so, were they kind to his feet? He said they didn’t make his feet hurt and he was comfortable standing in them.
I can already tell that Hodge will wear these to death, he’s pretty fussy about his footwear so I’m pleased he’s found something which suits him, looks smart and isn’t a pair of trainers.
Well, I think that’s quite enough from me, here’s what Hodge had to say about his fancy new Jacamo boots…
“The boots were very comfy and it was nice to be wearing something which smart yet casual looking and which, I think will go with the vast majority of jeans. Due to my different sized feet, it can be quite difficult to find footwear which keeps both feet happy, but after wearing the desert boots for a couple of hours, neither foot was putting in any complaints. I’m very much looking forward to wearing them again”.
