Hotter Shoes #shoesietuesday + 10% discount code

The Hotter shoe shop I've walked past many times and I've never considered entering; I had the assumption they were shoes for the "older" generation - shoes that are built to be kind to your feet, so they compromise on style - you can't have both right? But how wrong was I! Yes they do offer super practical and comfy shoes, and they also deliver in style.

So when I was invited to the Hotter blogger #shoesietuesday evening in Norwich, I was intrigued and wanted to learn more, see the shoes, feel them and try them on.  And I am glad I did, I got to discover the 'Hotter' moment; this describes, when you first try on a Hotter shoe and you get to experience the comfort for the first time - I encourage you to try on a Hotter shoe if you haven't already. We met the lovely staff and I got to meet some fellow bloggers; tried on loads of fabulous shoes and learnt the history of Hotter's. It was a great evening, one where I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

What is so special?  Hotter shoes are made with secret ingredients, designed for a lightweight, air bubble filled soles, and soft leather. Soles that are flexible, made with special grooves that both yield and support your feet. They cushion your underfoot, giving you the perfect fit, through a seamless, ageless, and appealing to wear.

What shoes did I go home with.....

I went home with two shoes, the Shawbury and the Shearsby:

The Shearsby, in red/black with the classic buckle detailing, but with a unique and different strap. These look gorgeous on, and you can wear them with tights in a skirt/dress, or they look just as good with jeans. They are amazingly comfy shoes, and I can wear them all day without that aching feet feel.

They cost £79, and are also available in Tan and black colours.

The Shawbury Boots in tan with elasticated feature down one side and a zip feature down the other side. I fell in love with these as soon as I spotted them on display, and when I put them on, I fell in love with them more. Not only did they feel amazingly comfy and light, like no other shoe/boot I have ever tried before, but they looked great! 

They cost £85, and are also available in grey and black colours.
