What do you like to do in your spare time?
I enjoy spending time outdoors power walking, traveling, gardening and spending time with family and friends. My hobbies include renovating homes, antique shopping, decorating and sending cards or gifts to family/friends to commemorate special occasions.
Before you were sent shoes to review had you heard of Hotter?
Yes – one of my friends recommended them.
Are you a ‘shoe’ person?
Yes… I have always loved shoes. They are an important part of life…they make you feel good and comfortable, complete any look and help get you where you need to go.[separator type=”thin”]

What does a typical day involve for you?
I am recently retired and I am enjoying spending time with my husband, mother, brother and friends. I balance my time between our homes in Westchester County, New York (30 mins north of New York City), Lake House on the great lake; Lake Ontario in NY and our farm in Jefferson County NY. We also enjoy visiting our 25 year old son in Texas.
Why are comfy shoes a must?
Because I am always on the go, on my feet, and being comfortable is very important to me…I do a great deal of multi-tasking and when you need to accomplish a lot each day, the only way to do that is to be comfortable so you can go, go, go…
How does your job vary?
Every day is a gift so I try to get the most out of it and be as productive as possible.[separator type=”thin”]

Which shoes did you review?
The Vault Active shoes in Black Nubuck.
What were your first thoughts about the shoes when you opened the box?
Very cool looking with a nice silhouette and very versatile. I knew they were perfect for my lifestyle because I would be able to wear them with a lot of outfits.
How did the shoes feel when you first put them on? And where did you first wear them to?
They instantly felt great. I couldn’t believe how nice and lightweight they were. They looked great on. I wore them the first time on a nice walk with my husband along a path overlooking the Hudson River in New York.
What do you like most about the shoes?
They look great, they are very lightweight and comfortable and I can wear them with a lot of outfits.
Where else would you wear your Hotter shoes to?
Visiting friends and family, out to breakfast, lunch or dinner, antique shopping, grocery shopping, running errands, traveling… I guess just about anywhere!
