In answer to my feet prayers, I was offered the opportunity to try out Clark's for my boot needs this Winter. I have only one other pair of Clark's shoes but these a flat loafers. My initial thoughts were that I wouldn't find any boots that was in my taste but when I went into my local branch I was pleasantly surprised to find there was so much choice - from knee high boots to ankle. I was specifically thinking more ankle boots for me this year as I have expanding calf muscles and can never really find knee high boots to fit nicely. After trying on various tan and black boots, I knew I wanted to find something in black, ankle boots with a slight heel so I could wear to work and look smart and yet wear them more casually at weekends where they would be comfy enough for long walks out - not looking for much am I?!?
After much trying on (the beauty of going to the shops rather than buying online was trying different styles on) I decided to go for the Malm Dance ankle boot. Priced at £69.99 these ankle boots caught my eye as they were just a little different to everything Id seen and tried on. Similar to Chelsea boots, with a cuban heel that looked a little cowboy-ish, these were exactly the type of boot I was looking for, and once I tried them on I knew they were the boot for me - they were SO comfy.
Basically these boots are just yummy. They're first outing was to work - I don't do too much walking around work, but I wanted to see how they faired for the office - were they suitable to wear in the office or did I have to resort back to my court shoes? They were perfect. They looked great with a black leather-look dress and tights - it was a nice modern take on office wear.
This weekend me and my boots ventured out for some shopping. I decided to wear some black skinny leg trousers and peterpan neckline top, finished off with my fur leather jacket, the boots fitted in perfectly. The proof is in the walking, and well, these boots were comfy throughout my entire trip into town: no rubbing and the heel wasn't uncomfortable at all. The insides are well padded, especially on the ball of the foot (which is where I experience pain first!) and I lasted all day, walking around shopping and no pain - success!
I loved the look of these boots and it completely changed my impression of Clarks boots - they were so much more modern, the fit was exceptional and the quality is brilliant - all priced at £69.99, you are getting alot for your money. I'm already eyeing up the Lisette Blues boots in tan - look at them, they are yummy!
