How super exciting that we got the option recently to review some boots from Shoe Zone. Now as some, if not all of you already know I have a tween (age 12) she has developed into the teen mentality early and if she does not like something …… it will be discarded for all eternity under her bed (or at least till I clean under it)
This new school year Beth has insisted on having trousers for school and a must have a pair of boots. Now if you are in possession of a tween/teen personally you will know what a nightmare the whole shoe shopping episode can be ( you have my empathy!)
So with the offer of checking out Shoe Zones boots on-line as opposed to having to visit our local store I have to say I am over the moon .. no meltdowns ‘Kevin & Perry’ style to embarrass me in front of probably the only 3 people left in the shopping precinct that hasn’t seen the meltdown brewing for the last hour!
Now I actually had the option to have 2 pairs of boots one for Beth and one for me. However I was concerned for my pair originally as I suffer with SPD and I can no longer wear heels without excruciating pain so on with the search ….
Now first off I have to say I was impressed with the range of flat/low heeled boots (or as Beth would say “sensible boots “) … comfort and style is certainly the way I like to travel these days and also reigning in the excitable tween was far easier as the range of “sensible” shoes really gave lots of choice.
The hardest part for us was certainly choosing! with a list of 9 pairs between us the list whittling certainly was hard! Now it’s also hand to note that it is free delivery (not for named day or Saturday) so that also will keep the cost down and you can return to your local store for an immediate refund or exchange too.
On arrival I was very impressed …. the styles we chose came from their ‘Softlites’ range and they were very light weight for the size of them (size 5’s) Also both had some lovely fluffy inners too which only added to the comfort. They are like wearing slippers in the comfort stakes.
In all honesty for the price and the quality I am super impressed and I even have my eye on a pair of shoes and another pair of boots with my up coming birthday money!
How did Beth like them?? ……. first week of school down and she is wearing them without issue ….. and not only that I have not had to rescue them from under the bed
