From the 24th September through to 8th October high street shoe experts Hotter Shoes are celebrating their passion for making comfortable shoes with their Fit Fortnight event. Yesterday I popped along to my local store in Queensgate Shopping Centre where I was welcomed by the very dashing Prince Charming and his loyal servants (also known as the amazing Peterborough Hotter Store staff and PR team).
Look out for Hotters Fit Ambassadors in store, or use the online fitting guide at www.hotter.com/fit. You can also speak to a Hotter Fit Ambassador on 0800 083 8490 for further assistance.
Why the perfect fit matters . . .
Err hello? Cinderella?! Need I say more?
It’s all well and good having a pair of shoes which looks great and matches your outfit but if they slip and slide off your feet then you’ll look (a) like you’re playing dress up (b) like you’ve had too much to drink (c) extremely daft when you fall over as a result of said over-sized shoes. If they are too small then you can say hello to blisters, bunions and a day of misery. Finding the perfect fit can make all the difference to a good day or a rubbish day.
When was the last time you were fitted for shoes?
I honestly can’t remember the last time I had my feet ‘fitted’ for shoes. I always remember having them checked as a child and loving watching the fitters measuring my feet with their little contraptions. Today I had the privilege of getting the Hotter Fit to make sure that I can step out happily ever after! Hotter Shoes have 200 Hotter Fit Ambassadors nationwide (with more being trained daily) who have been fully trained to help you find your perfect Hotter size. After years of wearing (mostly) size 6 shoes, my feet measured size UK5.5 standard fit.
Meet Prince Charming at The Liberty Centre, Romford
Peterborough shoppers were treated to an extra special fitting service today with the added extra of Prince Charming by your side. On Monday 2nd October, Prince Charming will be visiting The Liberty Centre in Romford so do pop along and pay him a visit and find your Hotter Fit.
What’s Hot in Hotter this Autumn?
Oooh squeeeee my favourite shoe season has arrived, it’s time to break out the boots!!!! If you’re a lover of boots like I am, then Hotter have 20 styles to choose from so they are sure to have a style (or two, or three) that you will fall in love with.
Whether you’re a lover of knee boots, ankle boots, flats or heels Hotter has them all in a range of Autumnal colours to compliment your wardrobe.
There are boots for jeans, boots for leggings, boots for skirts and dresses, boots for walking or ‘just because’ boots!! Even if you haven’t got the right outfit, you’ll want to buy it just so you can have the boots.
Flat out for Fit Fortnight
There are times that call for heals but there are times when only a flat will do. I now have two pairs of the Hotter Shake shoes and I love them. The provide all-day long comfort which is perfect for a day of shopping, sight-seeing and school runs whilst still looking good. The new Autumn colours are right up my street too so I might have to pop back to my local store very soon.
Before heading into Hotter on Friday I had it in my mind that I was going to choose the Donna or Stephanie in black or red. I love the shape of the heel which I feel has a slight vintage feel to them, they look so feminine yet remain comfortable and supportive too. When I tried them on I loved them and really couldn’t decide between the two which ones were my favourite. As it turns out, I didn’t need to decide between them as something else caught my eye and I just couldn’t resist. Read on to find out which won my heart . . .
All in the detail
These flats are anything but dull, they are oozing in details and style but sadly for me, they don’t suit the shape of my feet as I have a high-instep which collapses when I walk. I do like the Village which would work well for me but they were not the winner on the day for me.
My Beautiful Belle Boots
Just look at these beauties!! I am a HUGE fan of knee boots and these Belle boots caught my eye the second I walked into the store, Prince Charming didn’t even compare (sorry!). Belle are hardwearing knee length boots with a 1 1/2 inch heel, crafted from premium nubuck and have soles so comfortable you’d be forgiven for thinking you’ve left your slippers on. I tried them on and apart from taking them off to pop a pair of socks on so that I could wear them home, it was a pairing made in heaven. I have been wearing my Belle’s all weekend, receiving lots of adoring looks and compliments and my feel love me for them too.
Belle come in Jet Black Waxed Nubuck, Dark Tan Waxed Nubuck and Plum Waxed Nubuck. They come in a standard and wide leg.
