'Lauren' by Hotter Shoes

Remember that line that Renee Zellweger spouts with such conviction in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason? She is talking about Mark Darcy's alleged affair with the slender, leggy Rebecca Gillies. "My legs only come up to here!"

As do mine. Not in a million years will I ever have those long, slender limbs that go all the way up to there. The only way I can ever be close to 5 feet 7 inches tall is by wearing a pair of high heels.

When was the last time I strutted around in a pair of heels, you ask? I can't remember, is the honest answer. Definitely never in the last four and a bit years since I found out I was pregnant, grew a huge belly and started waddling around like a duck. Then I became a mother and the only sensible thing to do was slip on a pair of comfortable pumps to keep up with all the challenges of parenthood.

And now along come Hotter Shoes to entice me with a pair of stunning wedge heels - the Lauren Shoes. I chose them as my perfect pair and voila! I was sent a pair of my own to review.

Unboxing my pair of Hotter Shoes

I was buzzing with excitement as I opened the shoe box. M could not understand what all the fuss was about. "What is it with you women and shoes?" he asked. I refused to explain. How can I describe in words the emotions that envelop you as you hold aloft a well made pair of shoes? Shoes that are trendy and beautiful yet comfortable? Shoes that give rise to an illusion of long, slender legs that go all the way up to there?

Superb detail both inside and out


That's exactly what my Hotter Shoes do. I slip them on and can feel my confidence go up a notch. I beam in delight as I admire the lengthening effect they have on my legs.  Comfort for me takes precedence over style any day. But I don't have to make that choice with my brand new Hotter Shoes. Not only do they look stunning, they are utterly comfortable too.

My Lauren pair is in denim blue - I was torn between the teal and the denim, but settled for the blue in the end. The shoes have a super chic tapered wedge and a flexible sole. They are made of leather on the outside and have a cotton lining on the inside along with a removable cushioned insole. The bold buckle detail is striking and functional as it allows me to adjust the fit of the shoe as the day goes on.

Don't my feet look nice!

Stylish, yet comfortable. My new Hotter Shoes

The whole look and feel of these shoes is uber stylish. Best of all, they feel soft under my feet and are incredibly lightweight. I was really surprised by how light they feel when I wear them; I wouldn't have thought that just by looking at them. All my previous wedges have been quite chunky.

I am really pleased with my new Lauren shoes and am looking forward to wearing them over this summer and beyond. Bring on the party season!

  9. I have been admiring these shoes ever since you shared them on instagram. I love them and they look like the kind of heels I could wear too. I wear boring old flats these days, which don't have the same effect at all :)

  10. These look extremely comfortable. I am on the lookout for a comfy pair of shoes as I do a lot of walking (and the rain helped me to discover the hole in my current comfy shoes!). I shall have to have a look at the Hotter shoes. Enjoy your new shoes, they look lovely.
