I Love Shoes shoe boots, £41.60
As I mentioned in this post I’ve been on the lookout for a replacement for my red Dorothy Perkins shoe boots for a while now, so these I Love Shoes booties seemed like a good choice for this month’s Sarenza Brand Ambassador pick.
These boots are very similar to the ones they’ll be replacing, but they have a slightly more elegant shape, with a smaller platform and more pointed toe. Like the Dorothy Perkins boots, the uppers are man-made, in a faux suede: it’s not the highest-quality fabric in the world (Then again, the price definitely reflects that!), but it’s perfectly serviceable, and it also makes them much more wearable than real suede, because I don’t have to worry about ruining them in rainy weather!
Also like the Dorothy Perkins boots, these are a fairly snug fit. They’re not so small that I feel the need to size up (I think the next size would be too large, and these have been working out fine for me with opaque tights), but if you’re between sizes, or want to wear them with thick tights or socks, you might want to consider going up a half size for a little more wiggle room.
How to wear red shoe boots?
As with the other pair of shoes I reviewed today, these are exempt from my Shoe Challenge, but as it happens, I actually wore them yesterday, and took a quick snap of my outfit:
This dress was a Christmas gift from my parents and is from the TU range at Sainsbury’s, which I’m a big fan of. I’m also a big fan of wearing polka dots and red together, as regular readers will no doubt be aware, so this was a natural choice for me! I didn’t do a huge amount of walking, as we were out visiting family, but I did wear the boots for several hours without any issues, so I’m sure I’ll be putting together some more outfits to wear with them soon!
