“I’ve owned a pair of Hotter walking boots for over 10 years, they have taken me on many adventures from treking up mountains and exploring the countryside to hiking along coastal paths. But all good things have to come to an end and I’ve decided this winter that it’s time to retire my old favourites and treat myself to some new styles that will protect my feet from the elements while looking good and feeling comfortable. I need my new footwear to work for everyday, not just for hiking holidays. So I’ve opted for two navy styles that can be dressed up or down."
Hard at work
“As a busy fashion editor I’m often dividing my day between meetings in the office and rushing around the shops and showrooms collecting and returning clothes that we use on our fashion shoots. The Rocky GTX® walking shoe will be perfect, with it’s grippy sole and Stability + technology I can pound the pavements safe in the knowledge that my feet will be supported. The smart lilac stitching and laces add a feminine touch to the navy and work well with tailored trousers and a satin blouse.”
“The sporty athleisure-inspired Rocky GTX® is also perfect for teaming with denim for a relaxed weekend look. I’ll wear this outfit on repeat for Sunday strolls with my dog. With the clever Gore-Tex® technology I know these shoes will keep my feet dry but still allow them to breathe. The lilac laces have inspired me to find the perfect matching jumper and chunky scarf to complete the look.”
Take it easy
“Hiker boots are having a moment in the fashion spotlight and look great worn with chunky socks and a midi dress. With Hotter’s Alpine GTX® walking boots you can be safe in the knowledge that you’ll not only look modern and stylish but you’ll have all the product technology that ensures comfortability too. I love the classic combination of navy and grey, perfect with this dark chambray dress. When the temperature drops I’ll add thick tights for extra warmth.”
“I can’t wait to wrap up warm and head out of town to enjoy some fresh air at the weekend and the Alpine GTX® will be the perfect choice for powering my winter walks. With lightweight FreeSole technology to lessen fatigue and deeper cushioning insoles for extra comfort I’ll be able to walk for longer and farther. Unless I happen to pass a tea shop of course - I can’t resist stopping for a slice of cake!”
