I think the shoes are lovely, like the similar style before them. Comfortable and durable I wear them for work, socialising, leisure - even, as they get older, for work. I bought three pairs of these and I love them. BUT why do Hotter keep advertising them when there are none in stock? Why also do Hotter keep removing such a lovely shoe and its predecessors, very similar? Why keep bringing back other styles and not these? It is so frustrating. These disappeared so quickly - I tried several times to buy more but to no avail.
