Welcome back my lovely people 🙂
I have spoken before on my blog about how awkward my feet are with all shoes… al I want in life is just a good shoe (hopefully 2). So my first job from about 23rd December was to find a nice pair of lace up black boots in the sale that were preferably waterproof and looked cute, not chunky.
fyi – sorry the boots are so muddy! so unprofessional!
After scrolling through Asos, Schuh and multiple other sites… I found the Timberland Nellie Chukka boots on Office, and fell in love.
They looked super super practical & 100% what I wanted. So of course I ordered them… (Its bad, I’m so used to the Asos Premier Delivery that I always expect items I’ve ordered to come the next day!) However, eventually the glorious office bag got delivered and inside were these babies & I just couldn’t be happier!
Firstly you will notice that they don’t look like your typical timberland boot… the top rim hasn’t got the ‘iconic’ padding. Instead I think it looks a little smarter/feminine, the padding is actually on the inside which I find a lot nicer. As you can see I went for these in black, as again I just wanted a good sturdy pair of black boots that I could pretty much where with anything!
I got these in a Size 8 as I have special orthotics for my feet which basically add a shoe size on so they will actually fit! Even though they are a bigger size, I don’t find they make my feet look any bigger… I think the lace detail helps them look slightly smaller. This is why I tend to stay away from Chelsea boots, because my feet just look huge… same with Uggs! (not that I could ever afford them!)
The thick sole is really cushioning and quite bouncy to walk on, making them an absolute dream to wear. I’m pretty sure I had one blister the first day I wore them on my heal, but they was all, I wear them all the time now and no problems!
I just thought I’d write a little review for you, in case there is anyone else out there with really difficult feet like me!!
