I don’t usually spend a lot on myself as a rule. It is not because I wouldn’t like to but because as a self-employed/partially employed/non-employed person as I have been since I moved to the Northern Ireland 10 years ago, I have learned to prioritize my expenses and Emma always comes first and so do her needs.
I am very grateful to have my blog though as through it I have been offered a number of review opportunities that weren’t only for Emma but for myself as well.
Last week, I travelled into Belfast per invitation and went to visit the Hotter shoe store in Victoria Square. I had ordered Hotter shoes before online, for my mum, in sales but I had never stepped into the physical store.
I was overwhelmed from the word go by the warm welcome and was invited to peruse what was on sale at my own pace. It didn’t take me long to spot a pair of short boots for autumn and the lovely sale assistant offered to hoak in storage for my number and the half size up, to make sure I was getting the right fitting.
While waiting, I observed the service offered to other walk in customers and it was exemplary, just like it had been towards me.
Rachel got me the two pairs, I tried them on and decided on the right fit but then I had a change of heart and asked for a different colour for my Whisper boots, something neutral, which would match my autumn/winter wardrobe.
Without batting an eye, Rachel got onto it and got me the other colour. She also reassured me that I’d be able to order the next size up boots in store, if those weren’t the perfect fit.
Fortunately for me, the boots did fit like a dream and they felt so nice and warm and totally perfect for the season.
Rachel did not stop here and after packing my boots carefully, she also offered me a renovating cream to keep them in top shape as the time goes by!
I left the shop with a huge grin on my face and feeling so very grateful to the girls in store for taking the time to show me around and look after me so very well!
I totally recommend a visit and the boots, of course, I am wearing them every day now, with this cold weather and they are the most comfortable and warmest pair of leather boots I have ever worn!
Disclosure: I was invited for a visit to the store for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are truthful and entirely my own.
They sound lovely and sounds great service too xx Will be looking into this brand more x
I love little ankle boots at this time of year. These look mega comfy – have heard good things about Hotter shoes
I have often bought shoes from hotter shoes but never been brave enough to buy mail order boots. These look amazing and we now have a store in Cardiff so I must visit!
Ooo! I love a pair of new Season boots. I’m lusting after a pair of black Chelsea boots xx
The service in Hotter stores really does go above and beyond doesn’t it.
I have never been to Hotter before, I know my Mum loves them and I presumed they would be a little dated….however I am so wrong! Those boots are really nice and just checked out the website and they have some lovely boots.
I’ve seen a lot about this brand recently, I’m going to have to take a peek in one of their shops. You can never have too many winter boots after all!
I need a new pair of boots, that and some jumpers are things I havent yet currently replaced x
They sound fab and perfect for this time of year! I’ve been meaning to order myself a pair of boots for ages! x
Sounds like great service. The boots are a lovely colour. I always forget to go in there and check for shoes x
I have just got the Hotter Hampton in Chocolate and absolutely love them, they are soooooo comfy 🙂
I love Hotter shoes, nothing is ever too much trouble and they make sure the shoe fits perfectly. I am in love with their autumn winter range
It’s definitely autumn now the boots are coming out! These look like a lovey comfy pair that will see you through this winter quite happily 🙂 x
They are gorgeous Oana, I love boots and have several pairs that I live in during the winter, if only I didn’t have such ridiculously big feet I’d probably have so many more added to my collection.
I love those boots and I’d be exactly the same wanting a practical colour that I can get use out of x x
