It’s competition time with Shoe The Bear!
I know the thought of wearing enclosed shoes is hard in the summer, particularly a pair of winter boots, but bear with me, because this is totally worth it. I’ve teamed up with LOVELY new Scandinavian brand Shoe The Bear to bring you a brilliant competition. You could WIN a brand new pair of boots. How good is that?!
Shoe The Bear got in touch with me before they launched their first collection this spring. I was lucky enough to try out a pair of their sandals, and you might recall from Instagram that I LOVE them. They are chic and stylish, but also extremely comfortable, and I’ve been living in them all summer. So I was really excited to road test a couple of pairs of boots from the new winter collection.
I’m a sucker for a pair of hiking boots, and I’m also obsessed with gum coloured soles, so imagine my delight when I spied these AGDA N boots! They come in other colours but, and I surprised myself here, I am really taken with the pink nubuck (it’s really pickled ginger, so that’s OK). It’s a surprisingly versatile colour, and is a little more flattering to wear with bare legs with my skin tone than a pair of black boots, as you can see here. If you win the competition, you will get a choice of either these (in this colour) or the option below.
If you’re after a more classic boot, then you could alternatively pick these AKIRA black boots as your prize. They’re comfy from the off, being made from soft high-shine leather with a sturdy rubber sole. The most fantastic thing about these boots, though, is that they are hiding a secret: they are fully lined with a wool-mix lining. I KNOW! And not just the cheat’s lining that you get on some boots, where it’s just around the ankle and not on the most important bit for keeping your feet warm – the insole. Every little bit of the inside of these boots is fluffy and warm. They might not look as snazzy as the pink hikers, but they’d be the most useful boots in your wardrobe and I can’t wait to wear mine.
ANYWAY! Down to the important bit: how to enter. Simply do all of the following things and you’ll be in with a chance.
