These Boots Were Made For Walking

I have spoke about my non existent desire for fancy footwear before.
Don’t get me wrong I love seeing fabulous shoes on other people, and even I got a wince of delight in my stomach when we stumbled across the Irregular Choice shop in Brighton. But for me footwear isn’t something I get initially excited about.

This is probably because all the shoes I have ever loved have fallen to pieces. (Yes I’m talking about you leopard print pumps)



However on an unexpected whim I stumbled across these boots last weekend. I wasn’t planning on buying any boots that day, but I guess sometimes that’s just how it happens. And I must admit I’m pretty smitten.

I have seen similar versions in various places, but they were all a little too high for me, I mean I’m no stiletto queen, I much prefer a chunky and wearable heel.

And the snuggly material inside is so cosy for winter time.



They cost £18 and where from a shop called Store Twenty One. It’s on a bit of similar par to Primark. I have found myself purchasing a few bits from there lately, I guess it’s not as in your face as Primark sometimes can be, and the prices remain reasonable.

I’d like to think that once I’m twenty two I will still be willing to shop at a place named after my current age. We shall see!

  7. They're really nice! I'm the same with boots - I need them to be almost as comfy as flats if I'm wearing them all day so chunky heels are the way forward.

  8. They are lovely and such a bargain, there's a store 21 about 15 miles from me and I pass that way on my way home from work so me thinks a little detour may be in order. thanks. xxx

  16. Ooh those boots are lovely!!! I'm also not really one for footwear, although I have a huge soft spot for Irregulars, 6 pairs and counting. Bad I know! But I can't help myself buying a pair or 2 with my birthday money at the Clothes Show each year lol! I only wear them a bit though cos I don't want to ruin the pretty pictures on the soles, because somehow I managed to ruin all my shoes! I think I must have perculiar feet or walk weird or something :-S
    Well anyway, great buy! I'll take a look in there because they're opening a new store in Brum :-) xx

  17. Wow I adore those boots! I'm not one for heels either, and if so a chunky heel does me best! I bought some boots at the weekend too, but from Asda.
