I love ankle boots at this time of year. They are just great for the school run as they are easy to put on, go with lots of things and are quite smart. They are also much better than UGGs for keeping out the rain! I have been looking everywhere this season for some smart ankle boots in a brown colour but haven’t managed to find any for a good price.
So when Daxon offered me the choice of something to review from their product catalogue these boots were the top of my list.
They looked smart, comfy and I liked the dark brown colour as a change to my usual choice of tan.
They arrived quickly and were packaged really well. They are a lovely deep brown colour which will go with almost everything. They are synthetic leather which is important to me as a vegetarian but they are a really nice quality and it is actually quite hard to tell that they are not genuine leather.
These boots are super comfy as they have a stretchy elastic panel and a zip to get them on and off easily. But by far the best bit is the warm faux fur lining – it is an amazing feeling to slip your cold feet into these snuggly boots before you head out of the door! Absolutely perfect for winter – in fact I don’t think I could go back to non-fur lined boots now!
The heel is a nice height too, not too high so as to be uncomfortable but enough to give you an extra bit of height (which I definitely need!) and keeps my jeans off the ground and saves the ends from getting wet on the school run. I wore these for a whole day shopping without breaking them in first and they were so comfortable it was like I had owned them forever!
I am a size 4.5 so I sized up as I normally do in boots as I like to wear thick socks and went for a 5. They are a nice size, only slightly too big so I think the sizing is spot on.
These boots retail at £35 which is great value, but at the moment they have 30% off so are on offer for £24 – a definite ‘snap me up’ price!
