Due to my everyday journey to work being part public transport and part hiking through the city centre when it comes to the colder months I need something to keep my feet warm and me upright (I have tendency to always find the icy patches!!) so with this in mind I made my choice.
I went with these lovely Extra Wide Fitting Boots* which come in two different calf sizes, XL and XXL. I decided to try the XXL and to be fair I could have gotten away with the XL but the extra room means I will be able to comfortably tuck my jeans into them and pop a good pair of boots socks inside if I want to. They have a lovely stretchy panel at the back which means they don't pinch your legs and have lots of give. The soles are sturdy and have lots of grip which is perfect for me as hopefully I shall stay upright all through the winter!!I should also point out that these are Extra Wide (EE) in the foot.
They are a lovely soft leather and don't feel like they need breaking in (there is nothing worse than sore heels from new shoes) so for me these get five stars!
I chose to style them with my Curvissa denim dress as I am rather looking forward to wearing this again when the weather is cooler. I would happily wear them with jeans for a casual weekend look or with a dress for work.
Don't forget voting is still open for the British Plus Size Awards and Curvissa have been nominated for best footwear retailer and they would love your support so please head over and cast your vote!
