Oh boys and girls, it looks like we are officially into boot season. I don't know about where you are but here it's drizzly and grey and pumps and sandals are definite no no's if you don't want to get trench foot. Thankfully I was recently contacted by Etrias about their new website Wide Calf Boot Store to see if I'd like to try out a pair and naturally I jumped at the chance.

After putting my measurements into the calf size calculator I had a browse of all the styles available in my size and decided to try out the Crete Black Wide Calf Boots (£166.95*) because they looked chic, simple and really easy to style with so many different outfits. When they arrived I opened the box to the lovely smell of new leather shoes which makes me oh so happy. 

They were packaged up beautifully and came with an extra pair of insoles which were lovely and squishy feeling and perfectly shaped to the foot for extra support. Sadly thanks to my annoyingly high arch I can't wear them because they just make the boots that bit too tight, but even without them these are some seriously comfortable boots. You could tell just by looking at them that they're a quality pair of boots but when you slip them on you can feel it too. All of the stitching and detailing is great and the subtle elastic strip to the back of the boots make them so easy to get on and off and means they mould to your calf as it moves so they always fit like a dream.

Like I've said many times before I think a good quality pair of boots is an absolute essential to anyone's wardrobe and is something that's really worth investing good money in as a good pair will last you at least one Autumn and Winter even if you wear them every day. I know these are going to be a staple for my AW16 and I hope you take my advice and get a good pair of boots in your life too!
