Hotter Shoes AW16 - Lotty Boots Review

The Lotty Boot

This new characterful leather and nubuck ankle boot not only boasts premium comfort, but high quality styling too. There's plenty of room thanks to a deep toe box with padded insoles for cushioned support and inside zips. Stretchy V detail finishes the Lotty look.

What we think...

I'm no stranger to Hotter shoes. after thinking they're just for older people, 2016 has become the year of stylish Hotter comfort for me. As Autumn is rolling in thick and fast now, I have dusted off my boot collection and thick jackets. However, I realised most have holes in or need new soles. Comfy, waterproof and stylish boots are needed for long walks with Leonard the dog and the school run, Hotter have all of this covered this season and I was luckily gifted a pair of hot new boots.

I was invited down to their new Reading store to hear all about their new Autumn Winter collection and about their Hotter Concept. I tried on 50 pairs of shoes (slight exaggeration) and I kept going back and staring at Lotty. She is a beauty. Comfy and stylish, just like they promised. 

The cushioned insoles make these boots feel like you're walking on air. Made of Nubuck and sprayed with their Oiled Nubuck Conditioner (also available from Hotter), the water just runs off the surface, making them perfect dog walking boots. I have worn them regularly for a few weeks now and they still look like new. I now have my eye on the 2 other colours... why not hey?! 

*TIP* The conditioner spray works on ANY material, I have sprayed all my hats with it, now they're fully waterproof and winter ready. I love this stuff!
