Today I am bringing you a review from a company that I have absolutely fallen in love with.
I will be the first to admit that having never owned a proper pair of leather boots, I could never really appreciate the difference and good reasoning for buying them.
I can safely say that I now know what the fuss is about and if you don't own a good pair of leather boots you should get on it ASAP.
Jilsen is a company from the Netherlands that ships to the UK and sell wide calf leather boots in several sizes. The leather is high quality, the fit is great and the styles are varied and bang on trend - they even do colours like blue and red. I was really pleased when they contacted me because I wear boots several times a week and have had trouble finding really good ones that fit my calves.
I am wearing the Amber boots in black leather. I wear a size 48 calf and it is perfect. The boots are sturdy and my foot doesn't slide or move, yet they are so comfortable and haven't rubbed or given me issues anywhere, which is unheard of in almost all of the boots I have owned.
The heel is just high enough and makes my legs look fab when trotting around without making my legs or feet sore. Check out the Jilsen website as they have loads of different heels and flat boots for those that want no heel at all.
What I am wearing:
Cardigan - Primark
Dress - George for Asda (old collection)
Boots - Amber by Jilsen*
Apologies for the less clear photo - I am in the process of looking for a new camera as mine is struggling with age. The boots have a decorative side zipper on the outside and a functional zipper on the inside of the leg.
From the moment that I received the boots I haven't taken them off - I love them and they look great with so many things!
