Anyone who knows me should know that I have a bit of a thing for foot wear, especially boots, and boy do I know how to acquire them if let loose! I do try to curb my spending on shoes etc as much as possible but alas my will is weak 0_o
I usually end up having to part with about 3 to 4 pairs of older shoes or boots a year, via charity shops, to make way for my new lovelies.
This week just gone, I purchased a pair of healed 'military' style boots from BooHoo.com for the sum of €40 (or £30 UK) that I had seen worn by a friend of mine recently. When I saw them I just HAD to get my grubby little fingers on them.
I would have preferred had the material been a tad more distressed looking but it's not enough of a complaint to put me off. I'm a UK/Irl. size 4 and these fit like a dream, though maybe a bit loose around the calf. This will be easily remedied by the addition of long socks underneath!
I also really like the look of the brown pair on the website, but they haven't been available in my size since I discovered them. Shame really as I actually prefer a brown boot to plain black in most cases!
Seeing just how comfortable the black pair are though, I'm going to keep checking back over the next couple of months and money permitting may allow myself to pick these up if the size 4 ever graces us with it's possible presence. Just yum!
I also recently (about 3-4 months ago) picked up these babies from River Island, one of my favourite shoe sources, for around the €100 which I don't mind spending here as any footwear I've ever bought from River Island has always lasted me years!!
My favourite part of these is the buckle detail and the chains hanging around the heel area. I was a tad surprised that I liked these so much as I normally am not one for 'cowboy' style boots, but these just work!
Though when I got them they were a lot wider around the top, which i didn't grow to like one bit, so I took my needle & thread to them last week and sewed up the sides to tighten them a little around my calf. Delighted with the results and they have been glued to my feet since!!
I also love how they are super-scuffed around the tips and the wool lining is lovely & cosy against the coweld!!
My last recent buy was this pair of shoes from Penneys (Primark) for about €13 or so.....
I first wanted the pair in brown but as usual they weren't in my size and when Siobhán want something, she wants it NOW! Ha ha, so instead of going away and waiting for the brown to come in in my size, I decided to go with the grey pair, which I'm delighted I did now.
And they heels are totally comfy even on the tile floors in work over an 8 hr day.
And that's the lot for the time being!! If ye are interested in seeing the rest of my shoe/boot collection here's the video from a whileen ago.....

And that's me for today!!
