Finding The Perfect Boots Thanks To

Finding The Perfect Boots Thanks To

It’s not for the first time that I’ve shared a boot love thing on the pages of Mum in a Nutshell. I’m a boot loving gal and new ones give me an extra spring in my step. (see what I did there) Do know what else makes this funky footed mamma happy?  A bargain.

I seldom purchase things without making sure I’ve got the bestest possible deal. Some might say thrifty, to others it’s being financially shrewd, but with children growing at a rate of knots, flippancy with the pennies isn’t an option. And here lies the problem. I have standards, or champagne taste with a lemonade purse as my mother often remarks. And as I get older I’m finding I’m more likely to opt for quality over quantity which makes bargain hunting just a wee bit more challenging.

Take boots, for example, I love a decent pair of quality boots. The kind I can chuck on with my skinny jeans. The kind I can wear out for lunch or nip to the shops in, that look good and fit like a glove. So what are my go to boots? Well that’ll be my London Fly boots.

I’ve been a huge supporter of this iconic brand for a few years now and have owned a few pairs, but these beauties don’t come cheap. When you get something both comfortable and stylish, made from real Portuguese leather then it is reflected in the price and so each pair which have graced my collection, there’s been some serious leg work to find the best price. (and there it is again, cue rimshot)

Thankfully Cloggs Footwear have saved any prospective new boot shopper the trouble which is exactly where my latest and most lustworthy boot member has come from. Perfectly timed to replace a worn out brown pair, these London Mes 2 London Fly mid calf boot are a welcome addition from the Cloggs Footwear sale. I’ve opted for a vibrant red pair this time, a step away from my usual brown boot.

Choosing the perfect boot to see me through the day, they have to be comfprtable and fashionable and I've found the perfect place to buy them!


Brightening up the damp dreary winter days with a shot of colour and taking me out of my comfort zone. The Mes 2 boot is a more sturdier build than my previous ones and luckily waterproof ( the older styles weren’t so good at keeping my feet dry!)

But if red isn’t your colour, there’s plenty more styles over on the Cloggs website and half the fun’s choosing. I found delivery fast and problem free with regular email updates on the status of my order so there was no guessing game as to when they’d arrive. And with lots of top name brands to choose, from UGG to Hunter wellies and Converse, there really is something for everyone (I’m seriously tempted by the mini UGGs to add a funky touch to  the toddler’s wardrobe.)

Now that springs just around the corner, it’ll soon be time to take a serious look at my spring / summer footwear.

Not that I ever need much persuading!

    I’ve never brought shoes from cloggs before I’ll have to check them out I live in my boots this time of year til they fall apart. I love the look of the red boots in general I tend to go for black ones as I feel they suit me better. I love a bargain too.

      These are the first red pair I’ve ever owned and it does mean i have to make sure I’m not wearing anything which clashes with them but its nice to have something a little different

    Sounds like a great resource for shoes! I must go and check them out 🙂 x

      I’ll be heading back over for some summer shoes inspiration in a few months,

    I love how comfortable and stylish your boots look. They remind me of riding boots with their smooth tan leather finish!

    • 27th January 2016 / 9:24 pm

      and the best thing about quality leather like this is that they get better with age,

    Oh wow, I am loving the look of these boots. I have never really liked buying boots but the last 6 months has seen me find my new love of boots. I need to check out cloggs

    • 27th January 2016 / 9:23 pm

      They are unbelievably comfortable. great service from Cloggs too.

    I’ll have to pop over and have a nose. I’d love some new boots. It’s been that long since I last had some that I’ve got no idea what even happened to them!

    • 27th January 2016 / 9:22 pm

      They’ve got a fab sale on at the moment, I’m are there’s something on there that”’ tickle your fancy!

    These look lovely and such good quality. I find its so hard to find good quality boots that actually look nice, but these are very stylish and look lovely with those tights and skirt.

  7. 27th January 2016 / 9:34 pm

    Oh these look great – I love the colour and they look fab on you. I haven’t looked at Clogs before, I will now, thank you. Kaz x

    As I said before, I love the colour of these. I’d quite like a pair but I’m not sure they’d fit my fat calves. I must dig out my boots though, before the winter’s nearly over.

    I didn’t know Cloggs did boots. I love the colour, they look sooo comfy

  10. 28th January 2016 / 9:01 am

    I am on the search for the perfect boots after my faithful pair have died on me, waaaaaaa! I will definitely check out ‘cloggs’! xx

  11. 28th January 2016 / 11:50 am

    I really like the shape and style of these boots! I also believe that once you find that perfect pair, you never want them to wear out x

  12. 28th January 2016 / 1:12 pm

    I had no idea Cloggs did boots! You learn something new every day 😉 It’s always super useful to have a good sturdy pair of boots that are good in all weathers!

    • 29th January 2016 / 7:31 am

      That’s what I was going for, an all weather pair is vital in our unpredictable seasons

  13. 28th January 2016 / 1:24 pm

    Such a lovely review, I love the colour that you have chosen. This seems perfect boots for winter seasons.

    Oh I love those boots, the red colour is just gorgeous and would be perfect for autumn, winter and spring too. I’m always in boots during the colder months so it’s great to know that Cloggs do some lovely ones.

    • 29th January 2016 / 7:28 am

      I was really spoilt for choice, the sale didn’t help either!

  15. 28th January 2016 / 3:27 pm

    Oh now those boots are super cute, and I actually do like the red color. I like that they’re slim-fitting over the calves as well.

  16. 29th January 2016 / 7:55 am

    I’ve never even heard of Cloggs before. Someone else to add to the list! Cheers.

I'd love to know what you think?
