Spring ready feet with Hotter

The weather man might be threatening a deep freeze over the coming week but I’m embracing all things spring over here.  The days are getting noticeably longer, the skies are blue and there’s a bunch of tulips in my living room.  Spring is on the horizon and I’m loving it!

Looking ahead to my spring wardrobe and finally packing away those heavy winter boots, I’m excited to crack out my new Hotter Angel shoes in a beautiful bright red suede with a patent toe cap detail.  The white low-wedge heels looks fresh and stylish and perfect for lifting those staple navy stripes this spring!

You know I’ve had a few pairs of Hotter shoes in the past – with a wider foot (and a chunky calf) – their width fittings and half sizes are a godsend.  Rather than coming in a choice of fitting, the Angel shoe features dual fitting insoles – meaning that if you need a bit more room, you can just whip the main insole out.  Interestingly, despite my usually wide feet, the shoes fit with the insole in – though I think this might be because it was first thing in the morning and cold when I tried them on in store!  I love the fact that the dual fitting insoles means that if I find my feet are bigger during the warmer months, my shoes will still fit comfortably.  I actually tried the Angel shoes on in a 7.5 as well as my standard 8 as I found one of them was a little sloppy.  Typically the 7.5 was much too short but the super helpful Hotter staff sorted me out with a half insole which fits under the ball of my right foot and gives the perfect fit.

They make your feet look like a size 6!

When you have bigger feet, there’s always the fear that shoes will make them look even bigger – for example a pair of Vans tends to make my feet look like boats.  But the dainty, femine style of the Angel just makes my feet look neat and tidy – and in fact one member of staff in store commented “they make your feet look like a size 6!” – which we both agreed is basically the holy grail of footwear!

Currently these gorgeous shoes are also available in navy blue, powder pink or aqua and I can see a couple more pairs slipping into my wardrobe.  Much as I’m not normally a pink kinda girl, I absolutely adored the rose gold metallic toe cap detail on the powder pink pair and well, we all know I have a pretty major love affair with navy!

Loving my new Hotter shoes
I think it’s safe to say that this beautiful pair of shoes will be on heavy rotation throughout the spring and into the summer this year!

    These look fab, I love the colour. I really struggle with shoes and have to wear insoles to correct my knee and ankles, I am tempted to check these out to see if they would work for me. I love it when shoes make your feet look smaller!

    I love them! I want a pair now, choosing a colour would be difficult though.

    I’ve never considered Hotter shoes as my Mum used to swear by them for my Nan who was in her 90s. These look comfy and stylish though. I really like the sound of the wide fitting and half sizes as I need a size larger in width usually due to collapsed arches but this creates too much gap in the length often. I have trouble keeping on shoes without straps but I’d be interested in their other styles. Off to go check them out . . .
