Disclosure: I was invited by Hotter Shoes to choose a pair of shoes free of charge during their My Hotter Moment event for the purpose of this review. All opinions are my own. Please see our disclosure policy for more information.
Last week myself and several other North West bloggers were invited to the Hotter store in Chester to learn all about the history of Hotter shoes and to have a look at the new Autumn/Winter range for 2016.
I’m already a big fan of the shoes, I have a pair of Solar shoes which I wear for the school run. I might be frugal but one thing I won’t skimp on is good quality footwear, your feet have to carry you a long way so investing in them by buying good quality is definitely the way to go.
We received a warm welcome to the Chester store with Prosecco and delicious canapes, we spent a little time chatting and admiring the beautiful shoes, boots, and handbags on display before sitting down to listen to the history behind the company, the comfort concept and the shoe designs which was really interesting.
I didn’t realise just how local a company Hotter Shoes is, its factory and call centre are based in Skelmersdale, Lancashire here in the North West, the company was founded in 1959 and today has over 80 stores in the UK as well as a thriving online store.
After our history lesson, it was time to have My HotterMoment, to find the perfect shoe for me, each pair has a secret Comfort Concept feature including cushioning, flexibility, lightness and wiggle room for toes.
Trying them on I knew I had made the right decision, the soft suede outer and the faux fur lining paired with the cushioned insoles and lightweight sole made me feel like I have slipped my feet into a pair of slippers and the tassel detail makes them look super stylish and on trend. The Pixie boots will be perfectly paired with leggings and jeans in the colder months.
