Review: Hotter Whisper Slouchy Ankle Boots

AD/Gifted. With winter coming, my thoughts have turned from flip flops and sun hats, to cosy scarves and warm winter boots. I feel the cold fairly acutely, so my bundling up for winter always starts a little before everyone else. With Jack Frost nibbling at my nose, I hot footed it down to Hotter Shoes in Bury to get my feet measured for Fit Fortnight (16th and 29th September) and to pick out a new pair of winter boots.

Fit Fortnight is a great event. A few times a year, Hotter invite everyone to visit their stores and get their feet properly measured. I got the tram up to Bury, met some friends for coffee and a chat, then popped in to Hotter to get my feet measured. I usually buy size 7 shoes, but I knew that I was probably buying shoes which were slightly too big. My hunch was correct, both my feet are slightly different sizes, but the best size for me is a 6.5 E fit.

Rachelle, who measured my feet explained why I’d previously struggled with some shoes in my correct size. I have almond shaped toes which are more comfortable in a rounder toe, rather than a pointy one. This simple thing blew my mind.

I tried on several different styles of boot. I really fancied a nice pair of knee high boots, but practicality took over. Once I’d tried on the Whisper slouchy ankle boot, I knew I wouldn’t be leaving with anything else. It’s made with the softest leather and was just so cosy to wear.

Whisper boots are available in a range of different colours (black, dark tan, navy, maroon, forest green suede and urban grey suede). I have quite a few boots in black, so I decided to ring the changes and go for the maroon. The boot has a zip up each side, which makes it easier to put on and take off. They also have a lightweight, flexible sole which make them super comfy straight away and really easy to wear all day long.

The Hotter Fit Fortnight event is happening between the 16th and 29th September 2019. This fortnight is dedicated to finding you your perfect fitting shoes. In their stores across the UK you can have your feet measured to keep up-to-date with your shoe size and width as your feet can change size throughout your life. It’s really well worth getting your feet measured again; I know that finding my perfect Hotter fit means I’ll have comfy, toasty feet this winter.

If your feet like being comfortable in nice shoes, you should check out Hotter Shoes online, or visit your nearest Hotter Store.

Review: Nova Trainers from Hotter Shoes

AD/Gifted. Last week two things happened. Firstly my favourite pair of trainers fell apart; then I got an email from Hotter Shoes to say I’d won a pair of shoes at the Blog On Conference and would I like to visit my local Hotter store and pick out a pair. This is a classic case of the universe taking away with one hand, and giving something better with the other. “Yes”, nice Hotter lady, “I would indeed like to pick out a new pair of shoes”. So off we went to Bury near Manchester on a new shoe mission.

I visited the Hotter store during their “Fit Fortnight” (13th to 27th May); two weeks designed to help their customers find perfectly fitting shoes by measuring their feet and providing expert advice. Hotter shoes come in sizes 3 to 9 with some half sizes and extra width fitting options; so they’re pretty sure they can find the best Hotter shoe for you.

We arrived bright and early as the Bury store was opening and we were welcomed in. They boys, whose main role was to sit quietly and grunt appreciation at my feet made themselves comfortable on the sofa and I explained my needs to the lovely shop assistants.

“I need some new trainers, my old ones have died”, said I, and I was pointed in the direction of the Hotter trainers. There were lots of different styles to choose from. I am heavily sold on the Hotter trainers which come with a memory-foam insole. My dodgy back prefers the cushioning and can really tell the difference between walks I’ve had wearing Hotter trainers and walks I’ve had with normal trainers. Thankfully they have pretty much rolled the memory-foam insole out throughout their range.

I have recently had my feet measured by Hotter, so I knew I was a 6.5, but preferred the 7 because my toes enjoy some wriggle room. I picked out a few different styles to try on and so began my brief modelling career. The boys grunted appreciatively in all the right places, but I ended up plumping for the Hotter Nova, one of the cheaper options. Not because of the price, or especially the style, but because they were by far the most comfortable.

The Nova Trainers are described as everyday active trainers, which seem just the thing for me. I wear special dance trainers for my dance classes down the gym, but I walk miles everyday with the dog, and to and from school; so everyday active trainers are exactly what I needed.

The Nova Trainers are so comfortable, they’re like walking on air. They fit well and hug my foot well in all the right places. I opted for the navy blue colour which I thought was a really smart option and would look great with jeans. The Nova also come in Pebble Grey and Mauve Multi. They do look great with jeans, don’t they? They cost £59 and I reckon I’ll be buying another pair because my back is really enjoying me wearing them.
