Boot Buying - Cheap But Not Very Cheerful?
If you're like me, then when it comes to buying boots you're generally looking for a pair around the £35-£50 mark, with anything more than £50 being considered as quite the investment..
This is due to a mixture of me being a bit of a cheapo, and also down to the fact I know I'll only fall in love with a different coloured pair a week later - so I can't afford to go quality every time!
It's only when you actually experience what shoes are meant to feel like, that you realise all those days out ending with you limping home crippled are actually pretty unnesseary, if you'd only invest in a decent pair.
Showing The Feet Some Love
If it wasn't for Teva, I would never have experienced this little nugget of fashion wisdom at all, and would probably have got to 35 with my feet looking mangled after years of abuse with shit shoes.
When first looking at Teva's website after they contacted me about collaborating with them, my initial thoughts were that they were outside of my usual price range, but they looked good so of course I wanted to give them a try.
After a little scour of the site I found some lovely foxy mid heels which I thought would be perfect for styling up winter outfits. Here's how I styled my chosen pair and how I got on after a day of wear on the mean streets of Leeds.
Pinafore, Prints & Boots!
Mustard Coat - Topshop | Floral Shirt - £38 Topshop | Burgundy Pinafore - £30 Pop Boutique (now £12!) | Necklace - New Look | Brown Mid Heel Boots - £110 Teva (Gifted) |
Well, these boots are definitely made for walking.
After a whole day of wandering around Leeds shopping I was happy to find that I could have skipped home if I'd wanted to, because my feet felt like they'd had an all day hug from the soft comfortable feel of these leather beauties.
Non of the usual pain, just pure comfort! Amaaazing :)
I love that they have just the right amount of heel too (which is a necessity for us shorties!). Plus they're also pretty versatile - I styled them with a burgundy pinafore from Pop Boutique, my go to floral Topshop shirt and some spotty tights for added fun.
SO Lesson learnt: If you can invest in a good pair of shoes or boots then DO, your feet will thank you massively for it.
Big thanks to Teva! Check out their women's shoe range right here.
