Every pair of Hotter shoes is crafted and extensively tested in our Comfort Lab to the highest quality standards but we wanted to make sure you love them and approve too!

In Autumn, with the help of comfort testing teams, our shoes will be put to the test by dancers, retail teams and midwives to name a few. The first team to try out shoes from our Autumn collection is a group of nurses from Marie Curie, say hello to Lisa, Sally, Anisa and Donna from the Bradford Hospice and Louise, a night nurse in the Newcastle area.

Night Nurse Louise

Describe your job

I work in the community supporting families in need of support and help overnight with their loved one throughout their journey in end of life care. My job is just so rewarding in itself helping families in need, seeing the families faces in the morning knowing they have had rest while we support their loved one.

Why are comfortable shoes important to you?

Having comfortable shoes at work is so important, due to the nature of my role I could be on my feet for 9 hours so ensuring comfortable footwear is a major importance.

What did you like about your new shoes?

I really liked the style and the bow on the front of the shoe, they were very comfortable and soft too. When I first opened them I wore them for 4 hours and then wore them that night on night shift which was 9 hours.

When will you be wearing your shoes?

Nearly every day as they are so comfortable

How would you rate your new shoes?
