I’ve made a bit of money from etsy sales this winter and wanted to treat myself to something with it. I was dithering for ages about what to get, when the snow/ minus 15 degrees riculousness came along and made up my mind quickly – none of my other boots were waterproof enough to withstand the persistent onslaught from snow and slush, and none had grippy enough soles to be able to walk on the ice properly. I ended it up just wearing my waterproof walking trainers all the time, which are not the nicest to look at.
So I decided to spend my pounds on these Merrell boots because they’re super functional but also cute! Unfortunately the postal system then pretty much broke down due to the weather, so I didn’t get them til it started thawing. I’m sure there’s going to another freeze soon enough though, so I’m happy with my purchase, and I’ll be taking these home for Christmas! My feet are so toasty!
And I was so keen to try them out in action that I wore them on Saturday to a mulled wine afternoon even though the ice we melting and these red ones would have gone so much better!
