I struggle with footwear. FACT! I love buying new shoes but ALWAYS get blisters. I base how comfortable a pair of shoes is after about 3 weeks once the blisters have healed and I can start to enjoy the shoes. And if I am wearing shoes for a wedding or event I wear them in weeks before.
When we first got married Chris used to roll his eyes at me every time I bought new shoes. He blamed it on my choices but soon realised my feet were just sensitive. Maybe I was born to wander fields of daisies bare foot and my feet were not made for shoes, who knows?
So when I got an email from the lovely people at Wolky Shoes telling me how amazingly comfortable they are, I was hopeful. But I have been told this before. And yes I have some comfy shoes, but the comfiest ever? Hmm we would have to see.
I have to say Wolky have some super cool boots and after what seemed like hours trying to decide (there is so much choice and so many colours) I went for Murray in Metal Graca Leather.
As soon as they arrived I loved them, they are sooooooo stylish and on first impressions so very comfortable. They are made with anatomically shaped foot beds which mould to the feet with an extra layer of memory foam, which ensures they are as comfy as they can possible be.
So they were put through their paces for a few days. Waking the dog on country lanes, always the downfall of every new pair of shoes I have ever owned. Around town and shopping trips, another treacherous shoe test! And excuse they pun but they stood up to the test. No aching feet or blisters. So I decide to go for the downright foolhardy and test them out on a day trip to London.
Now please understand, only the bet shoes get to accompany me to London. Such trips take months of team building and trust. There are shoes in my wardrobe that after years are not trusted for such trips. But I felt ready and the Wolky’s felt good to go! You may at this stage be rolling your eyes and thinking I am mad. But have you ever taken the wrong pair of shoes on a trip? Yes, we have all made that mistake and suffered hours of misery as we hobbled around in said shoes.
As I set off in the morning I was nervous. What if they really hurt, it would be a long day? But let me tell you after a day of train cancellations and being let down by Northern Rail several times adding hours onto my journeys and having to run from platform to platform to catch trains. These babies passed the London test.
Journey dramas aside, I wandered the streets of Kensington taking photos, as you do. Or it that just me?
My feet were warm, cocooned and happy as I walked maybe a mile or three. And as I arrived home weary from train dramas and tired after a long day, my feet were still happy and feeling as fresh as daisies. And that my friends never happens.
Hope you like my little shoe diary of my day and one of my lovely readers is going to get a chance to choose their very own pair of Wolky Murray Boots. In their choice of colours. But I warn you its tough to choose I am now swooning over the dark blue craquelé leather!
